Subject: Emirates Comments
Just returned from India on my 6th round-trip with Emirates. Overall I
am pleased with their service.
Just 2 points rising from service resulting from the recent tightening
of security procedures:
1) Do they allow Business Class passengers 2 pieces of luggage because
terrorists don't fly Business- or because extra money allows to flout
International rules restricting a passenger to one? And rather large
and heavy at that.
2) Considering that no fluids are allowed to be brought on board why
is it that in Economy one has to wait until long after takeoff for a
glass of water while watching Business Class be served refreshments
upon arrival. Don't mention getting water from the dispenser as we are
not allowed to move from our seats until the seat belt sign is off and
being ordered back to our seats like prisoners.
Just wonder why security restrictions are different for passengers who
pay more or wonder if the well-funded terrorists might take a clue
from this. Appears that flying First Class does confer privileges.
Apropos the numerous comments about discrimination of Asian guests, as
An American living in India for 4 years I can tell you that it has
less to do with the whiteness of our skin than the respect we show to
others in a position of service.
