Emirates are slightly dearer but they are a good airline to travel with - Quatar good too. Etihad the favourite (better than Emirates) and best all round airline for service, comfort and efficiency.

Emirates is a top-10 airline. Better than BA in my opinion.

LOL! It's not hard to be better than BA. EK service is good and their eco seats r better than some others and they have decent IFE.

As for QR well... at least EK has not had scandal like QR who I will never fly again. This repels me utterly:

btw your British (or Kiwi or Aussie) nationality will not protect you from this kind of forced invasion if they decide to do it:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...r-airport.html

Always they love to cover up abuses like this but this wasn't a totally isolated incident.

"The later revelation that women on a total of 10 flights in Doha earlier this month were subjected to invasive vaginal exams has spiraled into a public relations catastrophe for Qatar, a tiny energy-rich state on the Arabian Peninsula that will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup." (quoted from the story above).

True that's Qatar... but it helps to bear in mind that EK's base is also a Gulf State where human rights are not compatible with what you might believe especially as a woman.
