British Airways or Emirates?

by mrkevinclarkc

Am looking into flying from Glasgow/London to Shanghai in July. Have been given two quotes - 1 for British Airways flying Glasgow - London, London - Shanghai or Emirates Glasgow - Dubai, Dubai - Shanghai.
Am just wondering if anyone can recommend which airline would be best to fly with. There isn't much difference in price - Emirates is slightly more expensive. I am particularly interested in comfort and leg room!

RE: British Airways or Emirates?

Hi there
although both airlines are great airlines. Emirates will be more comfortable as they have more leg room and comfort. They were voted best airline of the year last yr.
Hope this helps with your choice.

coach just doesn't feel like coach anymore.

amazing service! and much more comfortable aircraft.

A third vote for Emirates. We recently flew with them from New York to Dubai and the entertainment system, comfort, and service were exceptional. They've surpassed my previous favorite, Singapore AL.

Thank you for all your comments.
The only problem is - that they do not fly direct which would mean I would have a stopover in Dubai.
My brother has recommended I fly Virgin Atlantic as they are direct. Does anyone have any comments on this airline?

Dubai is not a bad place to be for a long lay over... it's got a lot going for it.......

RE: British Airways or Emirates?

by Jerry144

Yes, Dubai is a nice place to visit however having just endured 22 hours and multiple flights from Croatia to the US I would fly with the devil if it was a direct flight.

good response! I think I'm going to use that phrase.....


Travel Tips for Shanghai

Fuzhou Lu - Books and Stationary

by lucincia

Between the Nanjingdong Lu pedestrian shopping street and Yuyuan Gardens, running parallel to Nanjingdong Lu, is Fuzhou Lu. This is side street famous for its bookstores and stationary/office supplies shops. In the pre-Republic era, this place is also famous for brothels. Brothels are gone now, but the bookstores are still around.

Stroll down this street and visit all the specialty stores. Take the side alleys to discover out of the way street vendors. This road connects the southern side of Bund to the east and southern side of People's Park/Square to the west. It is not a large street with a nice mixture of feelings of west and east. It's a nice break from the too westernized parts of Shanghai and from the too touristy Oriental parts of Shanghai.

Shanghai Metro

by mke1963

This is the fastest, easiest way to get around Shanghai, although for one, single stop the size of the stations makes it possibly quicker to walk.
The stations are gigantic underground plazas full of shops and the occasional cafe and bar.
The fare varies 3 or 3 kuai depending on distance. You put your coins (only) into a ticket machine and get a little card that is used in the turnstile.
This is an easy, easy metro to use.
One warning is that the rush-hour crowds are immense. 1.5 million passengers during each rush-hour may not sound enormous, but a significant proportion are using just seven central stations. The crowds transferring at Renmin Square station from Line 1 to Line 2 between 5pm and 6.30pm is staggering.

Chinese history and culture

by bitbit

The museum has a good collection of exhibits ranging from anciet coins, jade, paintings, pottery to traditional clothings and home furnishings. From these exhibits, you will learn a little more about the rich chinese history and culture. Portable handsets with explanations in japanese, english and other languages are readily available. You need only to key into the handset the numbers as indicated on the exhibit to get a detailed explanation of the exhibit on display. I was awed and much impressed by the collections and found the trip to the museum most educational.

People's Square

by chatterley

On our free-&-easy day, we went to the People's Square. The cab journey from our hotel (Equatorial) was about 10-15 minutes and costs just 13 RMB.

Lots of locals come to this place, and we sat down on a bench and just people-watch. We saw kids feeding pigeons, couples stolling etc... There are many buildings surrounding this Square, and the Shanghai Museum is also right next to it.


by auelian


The gardens were a bit too touristy for my liking but managed to get in some nice shots .

"Don't feed the fish !"

Hungry fishies at Yuyuan Garden smothering each other ......

"Ancient Bronze Display at Shanghai Museum"

Priceless collection of bronzes dating back thousands of years. The designs and almost pristine condition is mind boggling. Definitely the highlight of the trip.

"Bird, Fish & Cricket Market at French Concession"

Just opposite the Dongtai Lu Antique Market. The lady is removing some kind of larvae from its cocoon. Not for sale but to feed to the birds !

"Walking in French Conssession"

Lovely boulevards with interesting European designed houses. Even a russian church dedicated to the Tzar of Russia ! Get a glimpse of history at Dr Sun Yat Sen's house & the Morris Estate ( now a hotel) .

"Flower Market, Cultural Square"

A most interesting design of dogs using carnations spotted at the Flower Market , Cultural Square , French Consession.


One of the lovely restored buildings at trendy Xiantiandi where you will find loads of western style bars and restaurants.
