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.
Air Canada provides its Business Class passengers with very comfortable warm and somewhat heavy grade comforters instead of thinner grade blankets provided on other airlines. This is a very nice unique touch that ads to increased comfort while sleeping when the cabin can get quite cool on long-haul flights. That said the cabin was kept at a perfect temperature for the entire flight (not too hot and not too cool). Personal DVD players and movies were available for Business Class passengers` use during the flight the in-flight pantry was fully stocked with sandwiches snacks and drinks for between meal cravings and passengers were invited to help themselves as needed.
This was the return journey home from our 12-day visit to Argentina which was booked several months in advance redeeming reward points from our Air Canada Aeroplan frequent flyer account. Given the great distance and long journey time from Canada down to Argentina comfort was a priority. So we decided to splurge treating ourselves to Business Class reward tickets. We actually boarded the flight at its origin at Ezeiza Airport in Buenos Aires Argentina for the short two-hour hop across the Andes to Santiago Chile.
