Perhaps not surprising, but it has just been announced that Emirates will begin charging for seat assignments on many economy fares as of October 3, 2016. The new charge will apply for Economy Special and Economy Saver fares, though it won’t apply for Economy Flex, Economy Flex Plus, Business Class, and First Class fares.

As before, all passengers will be able to select seats for free through online check-in, starting 48 hours out.

Etihat also try to collect more money from travellers,

the cheapest Etihat booking class "economy saver" includes only 1 peace of luggage
the next higher booking class "economy classic" and "economy flex" includes 2 peace of luggage
so if you have a thai wife, with a lot of luggage, you should avoid to book "economy saver"
take it easy

as well as London, Manchester, Newcastle options it might be worth considering Emirates flights from Amsterdam. It's easy and cheap to get to from Glasgow and EK has two A380 flights departing from AMS daily. Dusseldorf also has two EK flights daily, but no idea if that's easily (and cheaply) accessible from Glasgow. Amsterdam definitely is. And it's a good airport. I have never paid in excess of 600quid for AMS to BKK. Certainly not when booking 7 months in advance. The only downside when flying EK from AMS is it doesn't have a dedicated EK lounge. You either have to use the Swissair lounge or you get 50euro food vouchers. Dusseldorf does have an EK lounge.

You can also redeem your air miles for cash off flights with Emirates now. It Brought my 3 month ticket down to £480 which I felt wasn't bad. It's a pain about the seats though..I booked in early and managed to get the ones I wanted this time.
Now semi retired 60:40 Thailand: UK ( seems to be working well)
