Cabin crew mark 25 years of Emirates’ flights to Kuwait in the Onboard Lounge aboard the airline’s inaugural A380 flight to Kuwait on 16 July 2014.

Viewers then get a snapshot of the pre-flight crew briefing within Emirates Headquarters in Dubai, before the 25-strong team, plus flight deck crew, head to the 489-seat aircraft.

“It’s challenging the amount of time we have to go through and do the service,” said Ammor in the video. “If you look around, you see everyone is busy. We have basically 20 minutes to deliver the best in-flight experience.”

The flagship of the Emirates’ fleet offers 14 First Class Private Suites, 76 Lie-flat Business Class seats and 399 seats in Economy Class on the Kuwait route. All cabin classes are equipped with the airline’s award winning ice entertainment system, loaded with 1,800 channels of entertainment.

The video, which also includes footage from the cockpit and the popular Onboard Lounge, was captured on 16 July 2014, the first day of the airline’s A380 service to Kuwait. The day also marked the 25th anniversary of Emirates’ flights to the country.

Joining the inaugural flight was Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Centre, as well as members of the Kuwaiti media.

EK857 is the world’s shortest scheduled A380 service in operation. It leaves Dubai at 1600hrs and arrives at Kuwait International Airport at 1645hrs local time. EK858 departs Kuwait at 1825hrs and lands in Dubai at 2110hrs.
