Emirates Business Class : EK406 Melbourne to Auckland on the Boeing 777-300ER
With about an hour's delay we were finally called to board the flight so off I went to the gate for my first Emirates business class experience.

On approach to Auckland
Unfortunately there was a very long delay, about 30 minutes or so to get the baggage. No reason was given but the passengers were getting very frustrated waiting, I was just wanting to get to the hotel to have a bit of a rest before exploring Auckland. Eventually they showed up and I was soon through customs and onto a hotel shuttle van.
Overall I was impressed with Emirates trans-tasman business class. It is quite comparable to the Air New Zealand Boeing 777 and 747 product on this route but quite a bit cheaper generally. I still think Air New Zealand is the winner though, but only just!
One last look at the seats as we disembark
