Perfect flight to start and end a perfect trip

Review of A & E about the flight Emirates between New York Jfk and Milan Malpensa on 28/01/2016 in Economy
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

Emirates has really nicely-sized seats for the Economy class. They're very comfy and clean. We are taller-than-average couple, below average weight, and we think that the leg and seat space is very generous, which is much appreciated considering we're on a 13 hour flight. Their choices of in-flight movies (English) are wonderful. We likes it so much that we barely had time to sleep.

The meal is really great for an airline. It's warm, fresh, and very satisfying with options to choose from. Of course I'm not comparing it to an actual restaurant food, but I'm being honest and realistic.

Landing and take-off is on time to and from. Temperature is a little cold for me (because I'm always cold), but everybody else was comfortable. The attendant was more than happy to give me additional blankets.

Check-in and boarding were easy and no problem with luggages. We all think that the flight attendants are very friendly. Those who doesn't think so, needs to travel more with other airlines.

We love our flights and it really makes our trip perfect.

The bad part of our trip:
1. the super gassy passenger behind us. Good Lord! I don't know what he ate before the flight but he nearly killed me. Again, if I asked to move (or move myself), the attendant will be more than happy to assist me. We're too nice to offend the gassy man, so we pretend we hear and smell nothing. I have to limit my oxygen intake due to the potential hazard. His whole family cracked up laughing and ran away, as in ran away to other part of the plane and never returned. Now that's smart.
2. Two larger passengers that cannot sit still, constantly walking the aisles, and spilled drinks on me three times. The flight attendants were apologizing to me, even though it's not their fault. You can only make an aisle so big. I can have 3-4 of me standing in the aisle at one time, so trust me the aisle is plenty big.

Last but not least, thank you so much for our Polaroid Glorianne! It's been 6 months since our trip and the picture still makes me smile every day (it's on our fridge). What a great idea to take pics of the passengers. You're the best!

In short, this airline should be in the Top 5 and that's based on Economy Class review.
