In Pictures - From New York to Dubai Aboard Emirates

Luxury Travel Advisor is just back from a weekend "jaunt" to Dubai. After two 12-hour flights (and one of the best airplane experiences we have ever had), we are back on U.S. soil and ready to regale you with tales from the journey. Take a look at our flight experience from New York's JFK to Dubai.

The journey began at John F. Kennedy International Airport in the Emirates Lounge with a breakfast of Greek yogurt, an egg white omelet and a "detox juice" made of carrot, apple and ginger.

Settled into Business Class aboard the Emirates' A380 plane. A380 planes are double deckers, with Business and First Class on the top level and Economy on the bottom.

Before takeoff, Business and First Class passengers are given a welcome drink and a Bvlgari amenity kit. Champagne! Bvlgari! It's the life. photo4

Emirates caters to my shameless Friends obsession. After takeoff, scroll through the expansive media library. There are enough hours of entertainment to take you around the world...twice.

After your main meal (and a good nap) head to the back of the plane where the Business Class bar serves up a selection of canapes... photo6

...and drinks!

Twelve hours later arrive in Dubai refreshed and ready to take on this futuristic, Jetson-esque hub of the world!
