It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

Emirates Air - CHEAP Flights to AUS & NZ

A friend of mine has just booked a flight home from Frankfurt to Australia on Emirates and they're offering some amazing deals right now.

The specials seem to run in three blocks:-

  • Now - 28th March 2012
  • 8th April - 21st June 2012 (cheapest tickets)
  • 8th August - 30th September 2012

Tickets ex-Germany start at a very low E967 return (Perth/Melbourne) and some even come with a Rail & Fly pass included so you can get to the airport from your town.

I've not flown Emirates before, but I hear only good things.  So, if you're an Aussie or Kiwi expat planning a visit home, or someone interested in visiting our great countries, get yourself to their webpage (

Check out the deals here - I've linked to the deals in English.

Oh, and if you don't want to do it on the cheap, you can pay a vast amount of cash and experience their new A380 First Class that comes with a shower.  Yes.  Really.  A shower.  Apparently you get it for 30 minutes and one of their dedicated "shower attendants" will prepare it for you.  I can't even imagine how fabulous this would be.

There's nothing in this for me from Emirates, but if they'd like to pony up a free flight back to Adelaide I'd be happy to put up a review on the blog!  Giggle.  A girl can dream ...


  1. What do you do if the seatbelt light comes on during the shower? Run wet and naked back to your seat? :)

    1. I'm sure Emirates will respond to my begging and cough up a First Class seat so I can try and blog about their showers (yeah, right) and then I can advise! I don't know what you'd do. Maybe there are waterproof shower seat belts? Giggle.

  2. I don't travel by airplane. I mean that because when my wife, my kids and I travel on trains or boats, we meet a lot of people and we talk to them. Flights to Abidjan

    1. We love travelling by boat and train too - it just takes a while to get to Australia from Germany that way. Thanks for your comment and enjoy your travels!

  3. The most convenient way of traveling is travel by airplane. This is time saving, luxurious and comfortable. i must say that it is very easy to travel through airplane because of cheap flights.

  4. I do recommend travelers and business men to travel in airplane as it become cheaper and it will safe your time as well i was in India and i got cheap ticket to pakistan as i may found bus tickets but i prefer airways.


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment!
