“Emirates’ Boeing 777, connecting people direct from Dublin to Dubai each day, brings a range of very special products to passengers in all classes. This includes award-winning, freshly prepared cuisine, our unique ice entertainment system with over 600 channels of movies, TV programmes, games and audio books, and a collection of onboard toys for children to collect and enjoy.
