Upscale Commercial Airlines: Emirates is among the most luxury-latent global airline in the world with its luxuriously appointed customized Boeing and Airbus airplanes. The airliner puts forth every effort to make a commercial flight a signature experience that is comparable to a privately chartered affair. All aircraft are customized to maximize in-flight amenities, such as the Airbus A340-500. Although the plane has an approved passenger capacity of 313, Emirates' maximum capacity is only 258, providing more space throughout the plane.

However, the Emirates "treatment" begins for passengers prior to them arriving at the airport. A chauffeur-driven limo picks is available to that offers door-to-airport service. Once onboard the airline's award-winning multilingual flight crew ensures passengers are comfortable and pampered lavishly whether flying first class or business class.

The aesthetics of the company's grandiose aircraft are very welcoming. Along with the courteous crew, the layout of the interior offers passenger plenty of personal space. The conveniently wide walking aisles eliminate the congestion usually encountered when trying to move about the plane. The cabins in first class offer complete privacy. Passengers control their area with a handheld controller that services every need from adjusting the seat to ordering food, beverages and in-flight entertainment. Children also receive extra attention with video games, group activities and specially prepared meals.

Whether flying first class, business or economy, the in-flight entertainment system, ICE, is available to all passengers on personal viewing screens. Local weather reports, location of restaurants, events, shows, and other entertainment can be accessed on screen. There are more than 600 channels with movies, special programs, music, and video games. E-mails can be sent or received through ICE as well.

The Emirates Lounge is a pre- or post-flight respite for first class, business class, and members of the airline's flight club, Skywards Gold. The lounges are enclaves of tranquility in an otherwise chaotic airport setting. Passengers can enjoy a gourmet buffet, access the Internet, or simply relax and watch television while waiting to board their flight.

The luxurious super-lounges are in airports in Auckland, Bangkok, Brisbane, Dubai, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Melbourne, Munich, New York John F. Kennedy, Perth, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Singapore, and Sydney. Additionally, there are more than 50 partnering lounges in airports around the world that welcome passengers of Emirates. The lounge at the Dubai Airport even has shower facilities.

Emirates' recently announced an agreement with Bulgari to give first class and business class flyers complimentary amenity bags of Lé Rouge products. The men's kits contain after-shave emulsion, cologne, and body lotion, and the ladies receive face emulsion, hand cream and perfume.

Emirates' fanciful flights travel to more than 100 destinations in six countries.
