The airline itself is pretty good and staff is really considerate.
I remember once, on a long haul flight from Heathrow to Dubai aboard the A380 in economy, I was seated at the back of the aircraft, and the commence meal serving from the front to the rear. So I was obviously about last in line, save a few other passengers. By the time the attendant serving the aisle I was in reached my seat, she had only 1 beef meal and 1 chicken meal, so I passed up on the offer and told her she can give it to someone else who might need a meal more than I do. It took a bit of a while, but I managed to convince her to give me a lower priority among the passengers, upon which she left to serve the rest of the passengers. 5 minutes later, she returned to me with a spare salmon meal from first class, and I just REALLY love salmon, so I couldn't turn down the offer.
With that in mind, I remember being on multiple long haul flights, being the last passenger to receive a meal, have them run out of meals before they reach me, then throw their hands up in the air and say "welp, sorry, too bad, sit in the front next time," which is why I heavily respect Emirates and their crew.

I love Emirates. That is a nice facility they have. In flight there is the Dom, the suites, and the showers, but I cannot get a double bacon cheeseburger. What is up with that, anyhow?

My guess is that because bacon is a no-no for a muslim, so you won't find them serving any pork byproducts.

I knew that Andy, I was just being funny....

Meat and dairy is not Halal either.
And I thought they didn't raise cattle and hogs in the middle east because they couldn't digest sand. :))

Dairy is halal definitely if no pork byproducts are added to it. Meat is halal if it was slaughtered according to halal regulations (something like kosher).
Take it from a Muslim ;)
