    Emirates Economy

    on: B777-200 (three-class)

    NBO to DXB Slow check in at Nairobi - took 15 mins to get into the terminal through the X-ray. Checked in and it took another 20 mins through passport control. The airport has recently automated the departure system (using fingerprints instead of paper forms) but this takes about 3 times as long ...

    Emirates Economy

    on: B777-300ER (three-class)

    8.1

    LGW to Dubai. As usual for a day flight I travelled Y on the cheapest available fare. Check in - no queue at the business/first check in and at 7am the fast track was deserted so I was in the lounge within 10 mins of arriving at the airport. Lounge - undergoing some refurbishment but good ...

    DXB - LGW return flight. Check in - few people in the check in area at 2pm and I was checked in and through immigration to the lounge in about 20mins. Lounge - the EK lounges are excellent. The kitchens are all glass so you can see the cleanliness levels. Great food. Good selection of papers ...

    Qatar Airways Economy (short haul)

    on: A320-200

    3.9

    Dubai to Doha. My boarding pass said "Your 5 Star Experience Starts Here". Someone must be having a laugh. Dubai terminal 1 was virtually empty so I was airside in no time. I was surprised to hear final call being announced and we were all hurried on to the plane by 06.50 where we sat until ...

    British Airways Economy (short haul)

    on: A320

    6.3

    Return leg from Gibraltar to LHR. A very good experience. Well organised check in at the new airport in GIB. The staff clearly explained there would be three queues for Club/Gold/Silver, baggage drop and check in. Of course you always get one person who thinks they are too important to wait so ...

    4.4

    LHR - Gibraltar. My first flight on BA for about 2 years having let my once gold status wither. The check in area in T3 is a dump, despite there being several free desks we were unable to check baggage in until less than 2 hours before departure. Security was reasonably brisk and there was time ...

    on: A320

    5.1

    LGW to Geneva and return on a Swiss registered A319. You can check in and select your seat up to 30 days before the flight and it was handy to do this over the weekend a few days before the flight. Straight through security at LGW and boarded by jetty from North Terminal. I had speedy boarding ...

    Qantas Economy

    on: A380 (Config. 2)

    6.9

    As all 8 of Emirates flights to London were full yesterday I found myself in need of another option hence used Qantas QF1, codeshare with EK. Online check in - redirected from Emirates web site with a new code to Qantas site, however check in was relatively pain free. The flight leaves from T3 at ...

    Dubai to Gatwick. Despite company travel policy I did what I usually do for day flights and booked the cheapest ticket which was £375 return ex London. With Gold card I checked in in the business class area in Dubai. Even without asking the agent was apologetic she could not upgrade me but said ...
