A key trump card Emirates can play on the highly competitive 'Kangaroo Route' between the UK and Australia is the chance to do some serious retail therapy at Dubai International airport, the airlines main hub and home to some of the best, and cheapest, duty free shops in the world.
Considering the emphasis Emirates put on quality of service, it is not surprising that their flights can often be a little bit on the pricey side compared to some of their equally impressive, but less celebrated Asian rivals.
From the word go, Emirates was one of the best connected operators in the business: formed in 1985 with the backing of Dubai royalty, and two of the royal familys private planes among its fleet. Size and wealth are everything in the Emiratesphere. Operating out of Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport - the largest building in the world as measured by floor space - the airline specialises in offering long-haul flights with impeccable service standards. Emirates regularly top the tables of consumer surveys, due to high standards of in-flight entertainment and on board food.
No surprise the airlines rivals are worried. Emirates has expanded rapidly to become the seventh largest operator by passenger numbers, and the fourth by kilometres flown; in terms of annual salary per passenger, it may well lead the field. Suffice to say, when you fly Emirates, you do so in some style. First Class boasts private suites, with shower and spa facilities on some flights; even Economy offers more channels of in-flight entertainment than any other operator, including a birds-eye view from specially mounted external cameras. Theres more to come, we suspect: at the Berlin Air Show in June 2010, Emirates placed the single largest order for Airbus A380s in aviation history. Recession? What recession?
