Flight Reviews

30 May 2013. My husband and I had the privilege to have visited friends of ours in Denmark for a 2 week holiday last year July and we had such an amazing experience! We flew with Emirates from Cape Town and I was HIGHLY impressed by everything - from their extremely friendly and helpful staff, their delicious 5 star meals right up the the very experienced pilots!  We flew from Cape Town via Dubai to Copenhagen.  We chose Emirates as they offered the cheapest fair at the time we had to book our flights.  Even though the flight was very long, it was very pleasant and that all thanks to the staff and the on board entertainment. Thanks to Emirates, we have an amazing time and I tell all my friends to book with Emirates!!  Well done and keep up the excellent work!  :)
