Overall: Amazing bar, shower, mattress pad and alcohol selection. Mediocre service (on DXB-IAD sector). Disappointing lounge and onboard food. I definitely enjoyed this experience and say it was worth the points and taxes/fees I splurged on the ticket. Emirates’ first class suites are by now considered “classic” but in 2003 it revolutionized First Class commercial air…
