Emirates

I havent blogged for last 2 months, and i am sorry that i could nt reply to the comments even.I was in Zurich with my children and with my grand child I couldnt do anything else:)..now slowly I will catchup on all the blogs and all the other things.
I started my journey by Emirates, so i shall start with them only. I had heard so much about it from everybody, infact everyone appreciates them, so I was intrigued. Yes there service is good in the sense that they have more no of attendants and they come pronto..they dont go away and rest all the time as in some airlines they do.Secondly they serve nimbu paani as soon as we are set..this is my biggest requirement, because  a lot of time passes in checking, security and boarding and I am parched.
Their stock on entertainment was mind boggling..lots of movies,..
Food section, I didnt like, most of the time choice of items is wrong and secondly with buns they serve either butter or jam, I think both are needed plus yogurt is a must for vegetarians.
Rest everything was fine, they were always punctual and i had a pleasant landing.

Saw Dubai airport..and i was surprised that though its near home and many people spoke hindi, there was no Indian restaurant or cuisine available.It is a shopping destination, so has lot of shops, I didnt buy anything, but their local perfumes were quite reasanable..10$ for 100 ml.but in other things I didnt find rates any better..

Renu Renu Renu,

I am glad you had a safe flight and came back home safely. Glad you had a great time with your children and your grand child in Zurich.

But please remember an airlines is not a restaurant. Their job is to take you from Point A to Point B safely. Of course, they provide meals so you don't travel hungry.

Shalom said...

Wow, you must have enjoyed being with your grandchild! How old is he now? And about the airlines, I have to say Emirates is one of my favourites, the others being Etihad (Abu Dhabi's airline) and Qatar Airways. In terms of service, they are the best in my experience.

Renu said...

Shalom:he is just one year and 4months.at his most cute age..

Thanks for letting me know about Etihad, because so many time I chk it, but didnt know anything about it.

Reflections said...

Even I like Emirates...mostly bcoz the kids are no trouble in these flights. And ofcourse their service is also good:-).
And Qatar airways is also supposed to be good.....they've been winning some award or the other for the past 3 yrs now.

Renu said...

Reflections: is there anything special for kids?
