Final leg of the journey and with a day flight on the A380 we were determined to enjoy the experience.

We boarded from the B gates which had business class boarding from just outside the business and first lounges onto the upper deck.

Being back on the A380 felt great and immediately very spacious. The cabin crew were very responsive and introduced themselves using our names which felt a great touch. The service was top notch throughout.

We took advantage of the gate to gate entertainment which meant that we were able to start watching a film after boarding (much better than the VS option - it will be interesting to see if there is gate to gate viewing available on the A350).

We started with a light continental breakfast just after take off - mattress covers and duvets were supplied and we all took advantage of the opportunity for a light nap.

Later on the flight we visited the bar for a couple of glasses of bubbles before taking in a final film and a very tasty lunch.

Before we knew it we were over the UK and commencing our descent into a wet Manchester.

Through baggage claim quickly and in the car with the Emirates chauffeur for the journey home.

Very, very impressed with EK with a great business class service - next long-haul is with Etihad so will be interesting to compare.

On a final note- it was great to see a large full-service business class cabin very full both out of and back to MAN. Hopefully VS might have the confidence to provide a few more seats going west as they refresh their aircraft in coming years.
