Emirates Air new policy in economy class - all seats must be upright during all meal services !!

Jump to last reply

After a complaint, I received a letter from Emirates Air stating that economy passengers are in fact not allowed to recline in their seats during any meal service. This is to allow the person behind you more room to eat.

If you are sleeping, you will be woken up and told to sit upright.

This policy is also in effect on the 14 hour overnight flights from NY to Dubai.

I think it is an outrageous policy. Can you imagine being woken up 3 times in the middle of the night because they are serving snacks or meals? Imagine taking a sleeping pill to sleep during the 14 hour flight only to be woken up THREE times so the person behind you has a bit more room to eat. Outrageous is the only word that comes to mind.

We need another carrier to fly the US to Dubai non-stop. Emirates Air's policy are gestapo-like.
