@ Traveler Dave : if there was anything improper - let alone ‘illegal’ - about drinking alcohol onboard, then rest assured Emirates as a corporate body would neither facilitate nor encourage it.

Yeah there is a Video calling system in place where you can see each other.

How many airframes now have the new F? Has EK indicated any plans on reconfiguring the F cabin on the A380?

Completely blown away by the new F product on the STN flight yesterday. Just a shame about the lounge at either end, but particularly in STN. Hopefully going double daily might encourage EK to make an investment in something a bit better.

Is that official? Tim Clark said in a recent podcast that they’ll start upgrading the A380 in 2020 and are currently developing the product.

Just something I read on travel websites. Maybe they have changed their mind which is good news.

Return on EK33 today even better with an amazing crew! Emirates have quite a product here, never thought I'd be looking forward to going to Stansted in future.

@ lost_in_translation - good to see your very positive feedback

I’ve never been less than happy with the ‘old’ F product on EK, but have yet to try the special new 777 incarnation. It’s firmly on my list and STN is actually very convenient for me geographically - even if it wouldn’t normally be my preferred choice as regards airport facilites etc. (at least it’s much better than the total shambles that LTN has become ..... so a good thing that EK didn’t choose that ! I’ve no idea just how much longer the building mess will continue at LTN ..... I’m convinced most other countries would have had it sorted long before now, but I guess they think leisure pax don’t care)

Thing is I have a bunch of Skywards expiring soonish so would like to use them. But I see very little F award availability for STN-DXB, or indeed from other stations served by the new 777 config. I believe the occasional redemption seat IS released at very short notice .... ? Did you manage to snag one yourself ...... or did you decide to splash the cash ?
