Emirates Airways Flight to Thailand
The Emirates Airways flight - Manchester to Bangkok, Thailand via Dubai (2005)
We flew out to Thailand on an Emirates Airways Airbus 330 / A330 in economy class, departing from Manchester Airport's Terminal 1, with a three night stopover in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Dubai, UAE is in the Persian Gulf, about half way to Thailand. This was our first experience with this particular Middle East airline and we had heard and read some really great flight reports and reviews for Emirates Airways in general.
Emirates Airways' immaculate ticket and information desk at Manchester Airport Terminal 1 set the standard for the rest of the journey with this award
winning carrier. The ticketing / booking system worked well and we were through the actual check-in a matter of a few minutes once it had opened for
The high level of flight security managed by the airport authority was carried out on behalf of Emirates Airways by courteous staff with true professionalism and measured speed and diligence.
The Emirates Airways A330 Airbus aircraft was well turned out together with the good humoured, truly multi-national cabin crew. The in-flight entertainment system and catering was as good as any we have ever had on a long haul flight.
The first leg of the flight to Thailand was a six and a half hour journey in to Dubai with a second leg of a similar duration. Without the stop-over the total Emirates Airways flight to Thailand was just under fifteen hours.
We had avoided jet-lag with the stopover in Dubai, so when we got to our hotel in Bangkok we were ready to go! We would recommend a stopover in the Emirates
Airways hub of Dubai for a couple of days or so to avoid the symptoms of jet-lag.
