Sydney Return 1STOP Emirates A380 -Dublin £617.00, London £708 Plus £12 Quidco @ kayak

Found 8th Jan 2015Made hot 9th Jan 2015
Looking for flights and came across these in April. I've done this route a lot and these are the cheapest I've seen with a decent airline and decent flight times / duration. No messing around , 1 stop quick changeover. Also, the Dubai-Sydney portion is on the brand new A380's, which have more legroom in economy than most aircraft.

Other dates may be cheaper but all around the same price

*Note* Booking says Qantas, but flights operated by Emirates.

**£12 Cashback also possible on Quidco!**

Important words here are 'quality airline'. Good price.Hot

Good price

Lovely, coming up as £650 from London for me, if only they did similar prices up north!

611 for me! God I wish I had the time off!

Hope it helps some of you! Just to note the Cashback is booking through budgetair from Dublin and Netflights from London.

Great price!

Great price, great airline

We did similar last year - to Brisbane. We had a 10hr layover in Dubai, and they provided a hotel with transfers and breakfast. And it was cheaper :-)

A380 is huge - and great IFE

Emirates is my favourite when travelling to Oz

Emirates are pretty average in my experience, new planes sound good tho...

Yeah emirates is pretty average, if you compare with flying in a private jet all the time ?

Ive had 4 flights this past month with Emirates and I was disappointed, Etihad were much more impressive.

Some flights can be good/bad with any airline. I have used Emirates and Etihad from Manchester for the last seven and a half years now. Normally about 8-12 flights per year. I find them both as good/bad as each other. Some crews are good some are bad. Some flights are delayed some are not. This goes with both Etihad and Emirates. I would not judge either of them on one or two bad flights.

Now you've got me thinking about a different holiday this summer!!!:p

Going over Ukraine, cold.

I must admit, i flew 4 times with emirates in 2011 and everytime was a joy, did the same towards the end of last year, and quality wasnt all that, ICE was good, but foo and general staffing levels didnt seem good enough.

I'd love to fly on the 380 though!

off topic but £310 to tokyo from budapest (aeroflot) not bad, any one travelled with aeroflot lately?

That's a good price, though it's a shame you can't get low prices to Australia and NZ during our winter.
Maybe falling fuel prices will help?

A380 shpot on!!

I accidentally picked one of the best economy seats last time I flew with Emirates on the A380. It's the forward most bulkhead seat. The aisle seats on either side have bags of legroom because the bulkhead doesn't actually cover them like it does on the other ones...

I've flown DUB->DXB a few times... It's a 777-300ER on that route. They are old planes with lumpy seats and entertainment systems that regularly don't work. The layover for the Sydney flight is about 2 hours.
The DXB->SYD flights are on the A380's and are pretty good. Food on both legs is good.
If you're flying from Dublin, look out for some really great deals with AirFrance /KLM.... I was in Dubai over Christmas for £296 each and was in Singapore in November for £1000 in business class. (Economy was £326). Jo'burg in Feb was £404 for a while but isnow £444, which is still good. It's actually cheaper to fly from Dublin than fly directly from CDG on the same flight.

The only A380's I have been on have been BA and all their economy seating seems to be comfortable. Combination of good seat design and adequate spacing. Long legs just outstretch under the seat in front of you. I don't know if Airbus fit exactly the same seat design for others airlines.

Emirates were awful. Don't expect any empathy from them when you complain about their mediocre service and not even if you complain about being left at the airport when they were supposed to pick you up . If you try to escalate they just ignore you. That was after paying them £10,000 to fly to Oz and back, so I would avoid, avoid, avoid - or take the risk and regret it afterwards as they seem to be going down the pan and relying on an undeserved and old reputation. .

I went to Nz twice last year with emirates and only one leg of the journey wasn't up to their usual standard which was on a 777, probably not down to the plane but there was a lot of turbulence which meant the trolley dolly's were strapped in for longer than usual which resulted in moaning people upsetting their routine and delaying the non-moaning people even more . All the rest were on a380s and were fine. Also if you book Heathrow and its a Qantas flight and you sign up for the frequent flier scheme you can get access to the BA lounge suite for free, much better than sitting in the halls and the Rioja was quite acceptable. Most other airports you need to be silver or gold and they swipe your card but Heathrow is a bit behind the times and only asks for your FF no and boarding pass and they write it in a book.

You can blag your way into Bangkok lounge if you are persistent enough, they don't like a scene!
