Several areas are in need of improvement: The lack of pre-boarding Business Class passengers in Santiago the lack of communication from the flight deck the inadequate magazine selection for Business Class passengers the lack of a pre-departure drink service and the lack of priority baggage handling in Toronto for the Business Class passenger`s baggage are small points on their own but detract as a whole from what would have otherwise been a flawless flight. As such the flight is rated an 8.5 out of 10.
Prior to its present esteemed status it must be noted that Emirates had slightly slipped from second position a rank which it has held from the past couple of years. Its customer services and value scores relegated the airline at third place last year although it has consistently kept its high ratings in amenities food and in-flight services. Nevertheless Emirates persevered and continued to hurdle benchmarks for excellence just as it had always performed through all these years. A point of interest though is the airline`s signature Shower Spa offered at the first class section. This state-of-the art innovation in airline amenities had somehow made Emirates cope up with speed with the very best.
Approximately one hour after take-of blue table clothes were distributed in anticipation of dinner. White table clothes would have been nicer... classier. Fifteen minutes later a cold starter plate was served consisting of Prosciutto Ham and marinated Heart of Palm which was very nice. The fresh ground pepper was a nice touch! About 20 minutes after the cold plate service the main course was served. I chose the Over-baked Crabmeat and Corn Boat which was available and it was served hot on fine china and was very delicious! A dinner drink service was offered to accompany the meal and I had a nice glass of red wine. The meal portions were sufficient and the food taste and presentation was to a high standard.
