Thanks To The B777-200LR, Emirates Flies Non-Stop From LAX To Dubai
International airline travel is a function these days of the old "feast or famine" principle... what's good is VERY good and what isn't... well, we really do not want go/fly there. One of the brightest of the shining stars in the International Airline sweepstakes is an amazing airline based in the Middle East, Emirates.
Aggressively operated, marketed and managed, Emirates has become an object lesson for what to do RIGHT when you're trying to build a world class airline. ANN's Aero-TV crews were invited to a press briefing on Emirates' latest effort... NON-STOP service between mighty LAX and Dubai.
Emirates now flies the globe-trotting Boeing 777-200LR, 16+ hours each way, offering eight luxurious private suites in First Class, 42 of its latest lie-flat seats in Business Class, and space for 216 passengers in Economy. Operating with three flights a week, the service is the first non-stop operation connecting Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), to Dubai, the 'Gateway to Arabia.'
This is seriously "high-class" service... Emirates passengers can enjoy an array of cutting edge product offerings such as the airline’s ice Digital Widescreen (information, communication, entertainment) which offers over 1,000 channels of entertainment in all classes and nearly 1,700 hours of video and audio entertainment, outstanding service from Emirates’ international cabin crew, recruited from over 100 countries around the world, and meals prepared by gourmet chefs.
Los Angeles augments the airline’s American expansion, which now includes two gateways in California, the U.S. southwest with Houston, and the eastern seaboard with two daily services from New York’s JFK International Airport. Non-stop service from SFO is expected to join the mix soon, when Emirates can get a hold of a few more of Boeing's LONG-DISTANCE B777-200LRs
Emirates’ global route network spans over 100 cities in 62 countries across the Middle East, Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, Europe, the Far East, South America and North America.
