Hi Everybody,
My husband and I are flying Emirates F class to Rome from Brisbane..Seat Guru don't show any bassinets on the A380 in F but the Qantas seat map has them in row 3 in the middle..
My question is what do all you frequent flyers out there think of seats 1E and F...Are they too close to the Galley ?..Have reserved Row 2E & F but the bassinets have thrown me..
Thoughts anyone ??
Cheers

Have you checked your booking on the EK site, or the seat maps on the EK site? That could help.

I know that was a strange place to submit my question...I haven't used this site a lot and I cannot seem to find the correct way to do so...Once logged in John which section do I go to put forward a question ?
Cheers

Emirates seat map does not show specific bassinet seats. Have flown EK F to Italy a few times and never had problems with basinetts or children, but chissà. Usually we chose 1/2 either middle E/F or on the side K.

There's always noise cancelling headphones (supplied ones are not very good - buy some QC20/15's) or ear plugs for emergencies. :)

btw: The new EK lounge in Rome is excellent. Far better than any other lounge at the airport.

I have just received my E ticket from Emirates and the bassinets are placed in 3 E,F.
Also found a little virtual tour through the F cabin and there is only the showers and the steps behind the wall of row 1 ..So thinking there shouldn't be a lot of noise from 1EF..Noticed Mr Rooflyer commented he flew F Ek..If you are reading this have you got a comment ? Ps ..TMA ,Nice Red..!

There's no problem with row 1 on the EK 380. The "galley" in front isn't a food preparation area - it is a shower spa service area. Plus while sleeping you'll be ensconced in your EK F suite so you won't be aware of what is going on up there anyway.

Row 1 will be fine. To be honest row 2 would also be ok as the suites are pretty much self contained. Have flown around 20 F sectors in EK F and yet to share the cabin with a baby...

It would seem that way but Marge and I once caused a minor fracas by going in together. We were just trying to be efficient - she was doing her hair and makeup while I had my shower - and there was a knock at the door by an FA who told us that "one of the other staff members had complained". We dismissed the alleged complaint and carried on and when I discussed it with the CSM later he explained that some of the more prudish members of staff (it is a UAE carrier, after all) can get a little carried away at times.

I suppose one can do a Ralph Fiennes!

So I suppose that asking for some Champagne to be served to you both while camped in there would be out of the question? ;)
