Overview of Emirates

Emirates has three travel classes for passengers to choose from: Economy, Business, and First. Economy will provide you with entertainment, a hot meal, and free beverages, while Business has additional perks such as a seat that turns into a bed, complimentary alcoholic drinks, and a larger entertainment screen.

Although this airline is based in the United Arab Emirates, it provides flights to over 140 destinations that can be found in 70 different countries throughout the world, with many of them being in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. For those that are interested in traveling to Europe, you can choose from locations such as Belgium, Denmark, France, and Germany. If you intend on going to Asia, you can also choose from countries such as China and Japan.

While Emirates is not a member of a specific air alliance or group, the company is considered to be the fourth largest airline in the world and has connections with other companies, such as Pakistan International Airlines. Additionally, it has codeshare agreements with many other companies, including Qantas, Air Malta, Malaysia Airlines, and TAP Air Portugal.

This airline has become known for having a large fleet that is composed of over 250 planes, with many of them being either Airbus or Boeing. The Boeing 777-300ER is the most commonly used plane by the company, as it can fit anywhere from 350 to 428 passengers, contains a selection of small passenger lounges, and is best suited for medium-range flights. When traveling longer distances, the company often employs the Airbus A380-800, a plane that is known for being the world’s largest passenger airline and fitting anywhere from 480 to 615 passengers.
