Trip Report: Emirates EK352 Business Class 777-300ER - DXB to SIN (Dubai to Singapore)

Emirates is my carrier of choice in 2018 and that is mainly due to the fact that their Business Class fares are a lot more affordable than say, Singapore Airlines and also because the product itself is quite good. I have only quite recently obtained MVP Gold status (which gives me 100% bonus miles on eligible flights) on the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan program by crediting all my business class flights on Emirates (and then some) towards it. This is the final segment for my flight from New York back to Singapore (via Dubai) and it may be long overdue but I thought it might be interesting to people who are curious about the 777-300ER product on Emirates.

What does MVP Gold on Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Program mean for Someone based in Singapore?

After a series of Business Class flights on Emirates, I have finally achieved MVP Gold status on the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan program. I have previously written about how crediting flights to the right program makes a world of difference - on my Business Class flights from Singapore to New York, I would have gotten only a one-way Economy Class flight from Singapore to Perth if I had credited it to Emirates Skywards. However, since I chose to credit it to my the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan account, I had almost enough miles for a return-flight (somewhat even though a short detour is required) to Tokyo in Business Class.

Trip Report: Emirates EK202 Business Class A380-800 - JFK to DXB (New York to Dubai)

After traveling from Orlando to New York, I connected in John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and made my way from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4. My previous flight was on Delta Air Lines First Class but since the airline does not have any interline agreement with Emirates, I had to collect my luggage in Terminal 2 before lugging my bags to Terminal 4 to check-in for my Emirates flight from New York to Dubai.

Trip Report: Emirates EK433 Business Class 777-300ER - SIN to DXB (Singapore to Dubai)

I recently travelled on Emirates' Business Class for the first time as I had to be in the US for work and I took the opportunity to check out the refurbished Emirates Lounge in Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) before my flight. One of the many perks of traveling in Business Class is the complimentary chauffeur-drive service that passengers can take advantage of - you will essentially be driven to and from the airport by one of the limousine partners that Emirates has in the city.
