Emirates Dubai to Seattle In-flight Review

This is a quick overview of what to expect on the 14-hour, non stop flight from Dubai to Seattle on Emirates Airlines…

Our flight was scheduled for a 3:15am departure, but because of the recent electronics airline ban, our flight was delayed as passengers were processed and relieved of their electronic devices that didn’t meet the criteria (basically, only smartphones were allowed on the plane — no Chromebooks, e-readers, even headphones…). Despite not having these options available, I was plenty occupied with all the choices I had for movies, TV shows and music on the Emirates entertainment system.
