Emirates shows off 777 to North Texas leaders

Emirates Airlines showed off its Boeing 777 that it uses on its daily flights between Dallas/Fort Worth and Dubai to North Texas leaders and corporate travel managers.

Since I missed Emirates debut last February, I was glad to have the opportunity to take the tour that occurred during the three hour turnaround the plane made at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport on Tuesday.

Emirates operates the route with the 777-200LR that has 266 seats. Since its first flight, over 70,000 passengers have flown the DFW-Dubai route, the airline said. Emirates says its service is expected to produce about $227 million in economic impact every year to North Texas.

Here's a few pictures I snapped while on the plane of first class, business class and its free kids stuff in economy.
