some people think super friendly staff and service is what ultimate service is about
some people think being left alone in privacy with attentitive service is what ultimate service is about

everyone is different

So maybe the F experience is all about excellent choices depending on personal preferences. Nothing more than that.

Just confirming for those that flown 777 and A380 on F

the difference according to google is that the 777 seat is a bit smaller, and no bar/shower

how much of a negative is this if you are wanting the full F experience?
I actually thought it was the other way around - the 777 had slightly bigger seats than the A380 (which makes sense given the cabin of the 777 is much wider than the upper deck of the A380). But of course no shower.

But if you have the A380 on one leg - that should be enough to give you the expereince of all the A380 has to offer, shower, bar (if that floats your boat) and upper deck.

you may be right, I just got that from some trip report that could have been an amateur:)

I am still using QF but it is getting harder, it seems like the days when EK redemption has well and truly passed.

Hello folks, I have a flight landing at DXB at 13:15 (777) and another one taking off at 14:55 (A380) the same day, both in F. Think I can do anything more than a quick shower during this transit time?

Sadly it will all depend on where your inbound flight disembarks (terminal/gate/remote stand) and where your onward flight departs from. If lucky to be the same terminal and you have a gate arrival you should have time for a bit of a feed as well. If unlucky and you get a remote stand and different terminals you may not see the lounge at all.

If you've got the A380 on the second flight, a shower there would seem a better use of time.

Thanks kermatu - will report back in a few days but after thinking about my last shower in the DXB F lounge, probably a better option to have it on the plane instead.

Don’t forget if you should wish a shower in the lounge to point out that you are in F - they should see it on your boarding pass, but I have always had to tell them. That way you get priority.
