  1. Yes, the airline mockups are I suppose the ideal setups, which indicate what the aircraft could look like ideally. I guess the A380 could be a flying hotel if it was allowed to be. Maybe the one going to Saudi Arabia will be something like that. Anyway, it's a shame even the dream of flying in the 787 could in some cases be ruined.

  2. Always ignore the exaggerated mockups that show what a new aircraft cabin will look like. Once the airlines get a hold of it, it will become just another ordinary, overcrowded Greyhound bus.
    Just look what happened with the "Dreamliner". United Airlines and others turned it into a nightmare.

  3. Hi, actually I don't remember that since I wasn't very much into airplanes whenever that was the case. Hope the A380 is able to preserve its unique status as a somewhat more spacious aircraft. Still remember the talk about the showers onboard and lounges concerning the A380, which have only really found limited applications so far.

  4. Remember when the 777 was the best bet for comfort on a long-haul flight because the seats happened to be wider than other aircraft? Well, the airlines noticed this, and put a stop to it.
    Now, a 10 hour flight on a 777 is just as miserable as one on an a330.
    The same thing will happen with the a380, once the novelty of this aircraft wears off. It will become another overcrowded, charter-quality airplane.

  5. I see airlines eventually finding a way to squeeze ELEVEN seats across on the a380. Remember, you heard this from me first.

  6. Hi, I think you've got a good point. The seating was very narrow and not as comfortable as hoped for. The good news is that the A380 on every airline using the plane isn't subject to the same narrow seating.

  7. Probably because he had little choice, as most other airlines have now copied Emirates by wedging 10 seats across on the 777. This aircraft was never designed to accommodate this many seats.

  8. You can thank these scumbags (Emirates) for introducing the airline industry to 10 abreast seating on the 777. Most other airlines have now followed their lead, in a race to the bottom of the barrel. It's now a luxury to find a triple-7 with nine abreast, when it used to be standard.
    All the major airlines these days are becoming like cheap charter-quality trash, it's disgusting.

  9. Yes, agreed. I prefer day flights too because it's always difficult to sleep during the night flights and there are always other distractions during the flight.

  10. Hi, it's a 3-4-3 seat configuration so each seat was a bit cramped and narrow. I think a 3-3-3 seat configuration is much better for the 777-300.

  11. traveling at night is exhausting, I prefer to travel in the morning or afternoon specially if the flight is 7 hrs long !!!

  12. Hey Barry Obama I have 3 things to say to you 1. FUCK YOU FUCKING LITTLE RASCIST PRICK 2. NOT EVERY FUCKING PERSON HAS THE MONEY TO FLY FRIGGIN FIRST CLASS LIKE YOU, YOU LITTLE WHORE AND FINALLY 3 I KNOW YOUR TYPE YOUR A LITTLE FUCKING SNOB WHO PRANCES AROUND HAVING FUN WITH HIS MONEY AND CLEARLY DOES NOT SEE THE POVERTY AND HUNGER THAT CERTAIN PEOPLE SUFFER AND LIVE THROUGH. So keep your comments about your mother to yourself because no one and I mean no one GIVE A FLYING FUCK, OK.

  13. Barry Obama, you're probably a snobby 12 year old with a rich dad. I can tell you're a kid because of the way you act. Only a racist prick child would say something like "crammed in with muslims…" Once you're an adult, you'll probably be working as one of the flight attendants. HELL, if you're not a kid, then you're probably an adult whose a flight attendant. So yeah, I guess you do "fly in first class", at least by serving the people in it. t(-.-t)

  14. It's true that I contribute nothing and take everything. So does my wife -Talk about an arrogant, uppity bitch! But I digress…this is about you:The reason I fly First Class is so that I don't have to put up with haters like you. If you aren't smart enough to work the system then you do not deserve to be up front with the king of the manipulators like me! I loathe MENTAL MIDGETS like you that just accept their pathetic station in life and don't think they deserve any better!

  15. LOL….I have a high paying job as well. Law degree = parasite Job just like bankers. You contribute nothing to the system. Just take. When the system crashes again, and it will. Your kind will be wiped out.

  16. NO, fuck you! It's not my fault you are poor! Get off your lazy monkey ass & get a job! Get off the welfare, get an education & make something out of yourself. I was born poor to a white trash mother & I have a law degree & millions in the bank as I worked it. Granted most of what I achieved I got through lying & bull-shitting BUT I worked the system!

    So don't blame me that you are lazy, worthless, fat and poor. It's your own fault for being a sheeple (sheep + people = sheeple)!

  17. If you enjoying suffering in cattle class because you can not afford First Class then that is your status in life. I guess be happy and enjoy yourself.

  18. What a living hell! This is why I REFUSE to fly cattle class overseas! And worse even is you are crammed in with muslims on an emirates flight!

  19. Hi, thanks for watching and your observations. Didn't know those seats are smaller than even on Ryanair but at least the Emirates A380 seats are bigger and have more width. I did also find the seats here to be on the narrow side.

  20. HORRIBLE airplane with the smallest seats I have ever had to suffer in, including Ryanair. the seats are miniscule, as Emirates has crammed on 10 per row. the worst are the back rows with just 2 seats. seemingly more private, the armrests are unmovable and solid down to the seat, so you are completely immobilized for the duration of the extremely uncomfortable flight. NEVER AGAIN!

  21. Hi, yes in economy class they will have headphones but I remember quite a basic amenity kit with only socks I think. Don't remember any sleeping mask being included.

  22. Hi, thanks for watching and hope you have a good upcoming flight. No, they didn't have any footrests onboard this aircraft. It wasn't really an issue for me though.

  23. Hey mate, I'll be flying on flight EK 405, MEL to SIN in 3 months,
    I'm just wondering, are there any footrest (leg rest) on Emirates boeing 777-300 ER?
    from your video it seems like there aren't any.

  24. actually, I didn't know that they would be that narrow. They weren't too bad really but probably a bit more narrow than expected.

  25. @alexande4428 yes, on the B777-300ER there is plenty of leg room on certain models but I think some only have 32 inches of leg pitch incl. their A380.

  26. @travelader damm god!! anyway thanks for the info dude!! and despite the narrow of the seats, i hope to have a pleasant experience with emirates!

  27. @johnsalchijohn yes, their seats are definitely more narrow than in the case of most operators of the 777-300. The only airlines I've flown which is similar is Etihad on their Airbus A330 and maybe now Malaysia's A330 but Qatar have much wider seats.
    I think in most cases it's bearable because it's compensated by more legroom but of course a wider seat would be better.

  28. the economy seats are very narrow, aren´t they? i will be travelling on the 777-300 er with emirates and im quite worried about it, as i realized that their configuration is 3-4-3, while in most airlines is 3-3-3 or 2-5-2 !!
