We flew Emirates from Melbourne to Munich in December returning from Rome in January.
We travelled in economy class, but purchased an extra seat for comfort and so we had more room for our books, etc. - it meant there were only two of us in a three seat row, with one of us on window and the other on the aisle. On the way back we travelled with our son, daughter-in-law and 6 month old grandson, and the extra seat between us meant we could lie the baby down and he could have a lovely kick and play with plenty of room around him.
The first thing we noticed was that the seats themselves are a little roomier. We were provided with a pillow and blanket and a little travellers pack of mask, socks, earplugs, toothbrush and toothPaste.
We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food on the flight over, but the food on the return leg was not as good - the meats were cooked too much and were dry. There was however a wide choice of food on the tray at each meal, including an entree, main, roll, dessert and some biscuits and cheese. Water was also provided on the tray as were a variety of drinks and tea/coffee from the flight attendants.
I was a bit disappointed with the newer release movies on offer on the ICE entertainment system and would have liked an easy listening selection on the music program.
The staff were excellent on all flights and were always pleasant and helpful.
