Fly Me To Dubai

Remember we talked about Emirates Airlines starting non-stop service from Houston to Dubai? Well, T-minus two months. And from the press releases I am getting my chops are starting to salivate.

Emirates recently swept three top awards at the World Airline Entertainment Association’s (WAEA) Avion Awards. Apparently that's the airline industry’s equivalent of the Oscars for in-flight entertainment and if it is I'm wondering who SVP Nigel Page was wearing...

More than 36,000 airline passengers worldwide were surveyed for their opinions on the 30-plus airlines competing for the Avion mark of distinction. The 600+ channels of on-demand entertainment on the airline’s ICE (information, communication, entertainment) system apparently won them over. The system offers seatback SMS and email services and live text news updates throughout the flight.

With flights lasting longer than 16 hours, you want good entertainment, you need good entertainment.
