That's always going to be a gamble if you book looking for specific hard product.

Yes, they can, just create a profile with a fake DOB...

Congrats - and enjoy that flight! Done it with our two little ones and we were the only pax in F. Lots of attention from the crew, pictures taken, babysitting (whilst me and Mrs XXTSGR enjoyed the Dom and our meals), the older one given a full tour of the A380 by the purser, a suite prepared for nap time etc. Was like a private jet!

Yes, indeed.

I just love the look on the faces of the lounge dragons when my older son (4, soon to be 5) shows up with his Skywards Gold card pulling his Trunkie or when the purser comes round with his list to greet HVCs etc. He even asks for his own fast track card if they assume he's only a lowly Skysurfer! Priceless.

I've got matched to EK silver and will soon fly EK in J. If the FA finds out that I am a full skywards member at 15 - their look should be priceless.

From this I am assuming this is your first kid...

Because believe me, even if not with EK, all kids have status with mommy and daddy..

Congrats on the baby. Do EK do anything special if a baby is born inflight on one of their services?

Then the look on your face, when they tell you to wait at the door and to ring your parents, who are inside, to come at collect you from the door.

They certainly do - there's always a "Welcome to the world of Emirates" cake on board for such occasions [more than one on certain sectors] and new parents and their offspring are accorded a free upgrade mid-flight, free Polaroid and free-flow Champagne (in J) or Dom Perignon (in F).

Not sure, they'll be in a festive mood.
I was on the flight that was diverted in May 2017 for a mother gone into labor. 6 hours delay in total. There is always food leftover in F, but surely not in Y. The 400 Y pax probably shared the cake.

waiting to board... Aircraft parked at C4 so a nice walk to burn off some calories before the flight. Also a full 777 waiting in a small gate area is not the most luxurious of starts!
