    after eight flights a year with Emirates I finally gave up on them, the quality of service has dropped considerably,  little things like greeting frequent fliers by name has gone all together. on my last trip I asked about an upgrade Manchester to Bangkok return they asked for £1800, when I explained that with the almost £700 I had already paid totalled more than a business class ticket, she just shrugged and said that's the price.

    Funny how in commercials they always show the Dubai immigration smilling at the passenger, I've never ever seen a Dubai agent smile or even answer if I say hello….so unprofessional
