When it comes to high-altitude, high-class travel to Dubai and 131 additional destinations, Emirates Airlines literally soars above the competition. Live it up on your long-haul flight with massaging seats, complimentary Champagne and gourmet canapés and meals. Forget the flimsy plastic food tray — five-course lunches and dinners come served on bone china tableware with fine linen and flowers. After dinner, head over to the onboard lounge for cocktails and conversation with your fellow travelers. However, should you become too engrossed in one of the 1,400 entertainment channels playing on your personal widescreen TV, feel free to grab a cold drink from your seat's built-in mini bar.
