My friend is one of the few people I know who is exceptionally suited to living the ex-pat life on-the-road.
I told him I am envious of his travel. I am envious of the ease with which he moves through foreign cities. We have chatted while he’s been on five continents.
He’s taking the long way home tonight. He could have hopped a non-stop from Dubai, but it’s outrageously expensive. Why?
That sent me to the Emirates Air website. I wanted to see how the other half flies.
Refresh mid-flight in the Emirates A380 signature Shower Spa
We understand that air travel can be tiring, especially during long flights. That’s why we included two onboard Shower Spas as part of the First Class experience on the Emirates A380.
From the state-of-the-art shower system to the classic walnut and marble design to fine linens, the Shower Spas were conceived with your pleasure and convenience in mind. And, to complete the spa experience, we offer our signature Timeless Spa shower kits, made from the finest natural ingredients.
A relaxing visit to the Shower Spa can help ensure you arrive at your destination ready to take on the day.
Yeah. Why haven’t I ever taken the shower spa upgrade?
There’s more on their planes including a walk-up snack bar on the second deck for Business and First Class passengers. And, of course…
If you value privacy and personalised service above all else, you’ll love our First Class Private Suites. Each suite comes fully equipped with a sliding door, a personal mini-bar, adjustable ambient lighting, and its own vanity table, mirror and wardrobe.
If you want to stretch out and sleep, our crew will convert your seat to a fully flat bed with a mattress, so you can arrive at your destination totally refreshed. And if you’re travelling with a companion, the privacy divider separating the adjoining suites can be lowered, allowing you to share your experience together.
Really? Is this what you use while your own plane is in the shop?
My friend’s more pedestrian Air France 777 flight will take the Great Circle Route over England and Ireland, Southern Greenland and Canada’s Hudson Bay. Between the ocean and the vastness of the boreal forest he’ll be far removed from civilization most of the trip. He reenters the United States over North Dakota.
It’s a helluva commute to get home.
Wouldn’t you like to try the Emirates flight just once?
