Emirates' Economy Class has been voted the best by readers of the UK's Business Traveller magazine. The airline scooped the number one spot in the Economy Class category for the first time and the Best Medium Haul Airline title for the third year running at this year's Business Traveller Awards.
Emirates, the Dubai based international airline, has scooped two awards in Business Traveller magazine's 2002 reader poll. The carrier won Best Economy Class, the first time it has won an award in this category from Business Traveller magazine, and Best Medium Haul Airline, an award it has won for three years running.
Emirates jumped from third place in last year's poll to become the clear winner in the Economy Class category, ahead of Singapore Airlines and last year's winner Virgin Atlantic. In the Medium Haul category, which covers business flights between five and 10 hours, British Airways came second with Singapore Airlines third.
Emirates operates the most frequent service from the United Kingdom to Dubai, with seven daily flights - three from Heathrow, two from Gatwick and one each from Manchester and Birmingham. — (menareport.com)
