General information Emirates Airlines:
Founded: 25 March 1985
Fleet size: 256
Headquarters: Garhaud, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
History and Development:
During the 1980s, Gulf Air started to cancel their flights to Dubai. As a result, a crisis – a lack of flight was created in Dubai. It was high time for Dubai to have their own airlines. During March 1985, the Royal Family of Dubai came forward with a solution. As a result, a management body was formed and they took 2 PIA (Pakistan International Airlines) aircraft on lease, a Boeing 737–300 and an Airbus A300B4-200. PIA helped and contributed a lot. They also arranged necessary training for the future cabin crews of Emirates in the PIA training academy. This is how Emirates Airlines was born. As per the donation from the Royal Family of Dubai, Emirate’s initial capital was a mere $10 million only. Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum was appointed as the Chairman, who is still performing his duties as Chairman and CEO. Maurice Flanagan was appointed as the first CEO.
As of September 2018, Emirates operates to 161 destinations in 85 countries across six continents from its hub in Dubai. It has a particularly strong presence in the South and Southeast Asian regions, which together connect Dubai with more international destinations in the region than any other Middle Eastern airline. The countries with the largest number of airports served by Emirates are the United States with 12, India with 9, the United Kingdom with 8 and Australia and Pakistan with 5.
Emirates always tries their best to bring something special for their customers. To serve customers from all classes, Emirates Airlines maintains 3 classes namely First Class, Business class and Economy class.
Emirates is committed to delivering the best First Class experience to its customers. It can be called as the private suit for the premium passengers. Boeing 777-300ER provides a grand first-class inspired by Mercedes-Benz, which will provide an excellent atmosphere with superbly comfortable zero gravity seats and virtual windows! It offers you fine dining anytime you want. It also provides an onboard shower and spa. The 40 square feet fully enclosed first class of Emirates Airline is equipped with 2 minibars, active noise canceling E1 headphones, Safari binoculars, an entertainment system featuring 2,500 channels and wireless remote, a High definition 32-inch touch screen display and many more. There is also control pane from where you can control the room temperature, light colors, and types by yourself.
Emirates Business class has always been something out of the box. In many aspects, you can enjoy almost the same services as the first class. Emirate’s A380 business class is large enough to comfortably room 76 passengers. The seats are arranged in 1-2-1 configuration. The main problem of this configuration is there remains less space for movements. But surprisingly in Emirates Airlines aircraft, you will find ample spaces. The seat is comfortably covered with special leathers and accompanied by a soft cushion. Also, there is a minibar, electronic window shade and a special widescreen TV providing 2500 + channels. HDMI port is also equipped so you can stream from your own device. There is a touchscreen controller to adjust seat moods automatically depending on your requirements. Also, there is the on-board lounge where you can relax. You will be served with excellent full-stack meals and additional snacks. The number of meals will depend upon the duration of the flights. Award-winning wines and exclusively delicious meals will be served.
Emirates Airlines aims to make the economy class travelers forget all the previously acquired ideas about economy class. Instead, they aimed at giving a branded experience. The A380s has dedicated 399 economy class seats along with 76 business class and 14 First class seats. The seats are arranged in a 3-4-3 combination which may sound a bit crowded. But the actual fact is different. There is enough space for comfortable leg rest and moving through. Seats are especially comfortable with ample spaces. High-quality seat covers are made in a combination of leather and fabrics. Each seat has a seat pitch of 32 inches and 18 inches wide which makes them really comfortable.
Every seat is accompanied by a whopping 10.6-inch touch screen HD monitor, which is one of the very best in all the economic classes in the world. To put it in the best use, more than 3500 channels are available for the passengers. You can choose from TV shows, documentaries, podcasts, radio stations and more than 500 + movies. You will enjoy free Wi-Fi of 10 MB and the next 500 MB can be accessed with a cost as low as $1.00 only. Most aircrafts seats are equipped with charging points.
