The great thing about Emirates’ in-flight entertainment is that you can plan what you want to watch or listen in advance through The Emirates App
Before you board your aircraft, all you have to do is add your flight booking in The Emirates App, and you can check out the latest blockbusters, read synopses, and watch HD trailers. What’s even cooler is that you can create a playlist with movies, music, and podcasts, then sync it on board before sitting back to hours of entertainment.
Once on-board an Emirates flight, you’ll also be treated to some of the most luxurious experiences off-the-ground
Savour delicious 3-course meals, even when you’re flying Economy Class. Every item on the menu is carefully crafted and regionally-inspired, transporting you to your destination even before you set foot on it. For instance, enjoy a Japanese-style veal and beef burger, served with sesame fried rice and caramelised onions when you fly from Tokyo.
Plus, there’s something for everyone, including children and those with dietary restrictions. You can also request for beverages and light snacks throughout the flight, so you won’t ever have to worry about going hungry.
Also, you can choose from a variety of drinks, including cocktails, wines, and spirits made to order for your enjoyment.
