If you’re flying Emirates this Valentine’s Day, prepare to feel the love. The Dubai-based carrier is set to dial up the romance on its February 14, 2023 flights.
The romance will begin on the ground at the Emirates lounges in Dubai. First Class passengers will have the option of enjoying pistachio and strawberry cake or a raspberry tonka fondant, while Business Class customers can choose between a strawberry and yuzu Valentine’s tartlet or a fragrant hibiscus, strawberry, and almond mousse.
Both First and Business Class passengers can toast with Moët Rosé Impérial Champagne, or those who prefer tried and tested romantic sweets can enjoy Emirates’ old-fashioned ice cream cart to enjoy homemade strawberry cheesecake ice cream and raspberry and rose sorbet.
The complimentary Costa Coffee café in the lounges will serve heart-shaped donuts, while Dilmah tea has created an array of special tea blends for the occasion. All Emirates lounges worldwide will have an array of themed treats, from chocolate hearts to Valentine’s mud cake, and chocolate covered strawberries.
When passengers step onboard their Emirates aircraft on the day, special red mood lighting will greet them to set the tone.
Passengers in all classes will be given brownies or red velvet cupcakes adorned with red and pink hearts, encased in an Emirates mini gift box.
As an extra special touch, the airline said that ‘seductive soundtracks’ are curated onboard ice with the ‘Love Is in The Air’ playlist and ‘Romantic Moments’,’ a handpicked selection of classic love songs featuring Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Ed Sheeran, Diana Ross and Roberta Flack among others.
For its movies, there will be more than 70 romantic comedies and dramas available, including new releases ‘Meet Cute’ and ‘Ask Me to Dance’, as well as classics such as ‘When Harry Met Sally’, ‘Bridget Jones Diary’ and ‘The Notebook’.
Before the flight, passengers can browse and pre-select their movies, TV shows or music playlists on the Emirates app, which can be synced to ice, the airline’s entertainment system, when boarding starts.
