Emirates: A New Era of Glamorous Travel
Remember when travel was a glamorous experience? Flight attendants resembled elegantly poised models and poured endless champagne paired with fine cuisine. As airlines struggle to revive themselves from bankruptcy and cut back on every last perk that once made travel enjoyable, leaving you with plastic glasses filled with cheap wine and something to eat called “snax”, it’s refreshing to experience an airline that brings back the era of sophisticated travel. Emirates Airlines does just that.
This past week on Emirates, I was privy to fly the very luxe Airbus A380-800 from New York’s JFK to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, complete with its own private bar for business class passengers and even a spa suite with on-board shower for those privileged enough to fly First Class. After four magnificent days in Dubai, I flew the inaugural flight from Dubai to Boston, a new daily non-stop route between the two cities. Emirates is one of the fastest growing airlines and serves over 140 destinations. Boston is the 8th U.S. location for Emirates.
With a stylish flight crew from no less than 17 countries speaking over 20 different languages, the experience is sublime. Complete with five star cuisine and a wine list to rival any Michelin star restaurant, attentive service and comfortable cabins, you won’t believe you ever traveled any other way.
