Flew from Barcelona to Tokyo via Dubai, return, so several seat numbers, the return ones paid for. The leg from Dubai to Tokyo was a centre seat of 3 at the back and was actually, much more comfortable than expected. My only complaint is that if the person in front of you (and that goes for all seats) reclines competely, there is not enough room to eat comfortably and not even enough space to place a small bottle of wine. Cabin crew and I had to request on 2 occasions that the person in front lifted the seat to semi-recline, which may not be so comfortable for sleeping on a very long flight. Apart from that small detail, everything on the flight ran smoothly, all flights were punctual and as comfortabe as weather conditions allowed (only slight turbulence, short-lived, happily!). On 3 of the 4 flights staff worked very smoothly and efficiently. Everybody very pleasant indeed. On the Dubai/Barcelona leg (19/3) there was some confusion and lack of co-ordination.. not enough to disturb, but noticeable, which gave me to think that perhaps some of the crew were new to the job? Some were very young. The food was truly excellent. This is my second experience with Emirates and it continues to be my favourite airline. Boarding system is seamless. High praise. I will definitely fly with you again when going long-haul.
