Does That Ticket Come With A Complimentary Hooker, Too?

Emirates First Class Cabin

Oh, my!  This is a description of an Emirates Airlines first class cabin courtesy of the Ask The Pilot column at salon.com.  I’d spring for the upgrade.

“Each passenger is ensconced in a private pod with an electrically operated privacy barrier, minibar, and 23-inch video monitor. The seats have several adjustment points, all controlled electrically, and slide forward into fully flat beds over 6 feet long. The entertainment guide, listing more than 900 choices of movies, TV, music and games, is so thick that it comes with its own ribbon page-holder sewn to the binding. There are two remote-control units, including a hand-held, touch-screen device that is larger than the video screens found on many carriers. The leather-bound menu is restaurant-size. During dinner, the flight attendant came to my seat offering a basket of rolls and breads. I went to choose one, only to learn that the entire basket was mine. When it’s time for bed, the cabin lighting system projects constellations on the ceiling, then slowly brightens with the sunrise. And I shouldn’t neglect to mention the amenities kit the size of a lunch box; the oversize pillows and blankets; the slippers. Oh, and the windows — the windows! — have polished wood-toned frames.”

“First-class digs on an Emirates A380 include showers.”
