Re: Onboard the Explorer Ngaire 05/14/22 07:39 PM
So today we had to wait a long time for our gate to open. Judy and Alan were on the same plane to Dubai so Judy and I played scrabble while we waited. Helped pass the time. We were flying first class to Dubai and Judy and Alan were business class. One lounge for all classes and also used for the Priority Pass lounge. Pretty disappointing lounge. Cold vegetables and weird looking food none of us ate much. Only edible thing for us was a pizza type dish with just melted cheese.

We were able to get only one first class seat from Dubai to Dallas and then took a business seat as well hoping another first class seat would come available with miles. We have been checking but have been unable to upgrade the business seat.

When we got to Dubai we were met and whisked off to the first class lounge by a golf type cart. We found that there was one seat left in first class but we are on a waitlist and they will not confirm this until one hour before the flight. We put the required mileage in our account yesterday so that part was handled. So we will know about two hours from now. So we are hoping this will happen.

The first class seat was amazing so spacious with a super comfortable seat and a basket of high quality snacks like yummy dried fruits. Huge screen, storage space. Great meal a medium rare tenderloin with roasted pumpkin, carrots and green beans. Really top quality restaurant food I was surprised.

The bathroom was huge. You can take a shower if you wish. Ken took a couple of pictures I will post here.

The lounge is huge a long corridor type configuration with large seats spaced for privacy. A buffet that includes sea bass and a crab salad. Pretty nice. I just took a picture of the corridor.

UPDATE I GOT THE LAST SEAT IN EMIRATES FIRST CLASS SO I WAS VERY HAPPY. PROBABLY BE THE ONLY TIME WE WILL GET TO DO THIS JUST A FLUKE WE GOT IT WITH MILES SELDOM OFFERED.

Dave, a super easy way to link to many photos at once is to upload them to a photo site like Google photos and create a new album. Then you can link to the album in a post here.
