Spectra of seven members were taken using the UVES spectrograph at the ESO VLT2 and the multiobject FLAMES facility. We exclude any intrinsic metallicity spread in this cluster: on average, [Fe/H]=-0.44±0.01±0.03dex on the scale of the present series of papers, where the first error bar refers to individual star-to-star errors and the second is systematic, relative to the cluster. Elements involved in H-burning at high temperatures show large spreads, exceeding the estimated errors in the analysis. In particular, the pairs Na and O, Al and Mg are anticorrelated and Na and Al are correlated among the giants in NGC 6388, the typical pattern observed in all galactic globular clusters studied so far. Stars in NGC 6388 shows an excess of alpha-process elements, similar to the one found in the twin bulge cluster NGC 6441. Mn is found underabundant in NGC 6388, in agreement with the average abundance ratio shown by clusters of any metallicity. Abundances of neutron-capture elements are homogeneously distributed within NGC 6388; the [Eu/Fe] ratio stands above the value found in field stars of similar metallicity. Description: Spectra for 13 RGB stars in NGC 6388 were obtained with UVES/FLAMES@VLT; based on radial velocity, 7 of them resulted member stars. Abundances of Fe, O, Na, alpha-elements and heavier elements were derived using equivalent widths, model atmospheres and atmospheric parameters based on photometry. For each star we give identification, equatorial coordinates, VBIJK magnitudes, heliocentric radial velocity. For the 7 member stars we also present Teff, logg, [A/H], v_t, [Fe/H], [O/Fe], [Na/Fe], [Mg/Fe], [Al/Fe], [Si/Fe], [Ca/Fe], [Sc/Fe], [Ti/Fe], [V/Fe], [Cr/Fe], [Mn/Fe], [Co/Fe], [Ni/Fe], [Y/Fe], [Zr/Fe], [Ba/Fe], [La/Fe], [Ce/Fe], and [Eu/Fe]. We present here the EWs for all the above elements for the 7 member stars. File Summary:
