The upcoming 2012 Emirates-Qantas alliance will lead to greater options for air travelers flying to Australia.
Emirates is known for having one of the best economy classes with spacious seats, good food and modern entertainment systems.
An exception is its Boeing 777 fleet that has 10 seats (3-4-3) per row in economy leading to cramped conditions. This is the plane used for Emirates flights from Boston to Dubai.
Emirates Airbus A380 economy has two inches more legroom than Qantas A380 economy and much better in-flight entertainment systems.
