The Emirates A380 suite is the pinnacle of luxury travel. From $1,000 cognac to caviar and bottomless champagne, a flight in one of the world’s top first-class suites is an experience like nothing else. Here are five reasons why you need to try it out as soon as possible.
- You can take a shower at 40,000 feet
Imagine taking a shower at in the sky. Sound too good to be true? It’s not! The Emirates A380 first class cabin features shower spas for dedicated use by first class passengers.
The two luxurious shower suites are located at the front of the upper deck, on each side. The shower suites are maintained by a dedicated staff member, whose only job on the flight it so keep them clean. Spacious and sparkling, these on board bathrooms are a sight to behold.
Each first class passenger has the opportunity to book in for one 30 minute slot when embarking the plane. It’s ‘first in, best dibs’, so you’re encouraged to book in early. Tip: book in a shower for the last hour of the flight, so that you arrive refreshed at your destination.
While you’re only entitled to 5 minutes of water, the tap turns on and off easily, so you can stop and start your shower as often as you wish (within your 30 minute block). With underfloor heating and an assortment of luxurious spa products, the Emirates shower spa takes first class decadence to a whole new level.
2. You can sip on some seriously expensive drinks
Emirates has a reputation for spending serious money on their first class wine list, and it certainly shows. Passengers travelling in first class can choose to drink bottomless Dom Perignon champagne, back vintage French Bordeaux and a range of other fine wines. You’ll even get the chance to sample Hennessy Paradis cognac. This fine cognac retails for $900 bottle, so you won’t want to miss it!
3. You can try the world’s first ‘self-moisturising’ pyjamas
Medium and long haul passengers are gifted a comfortable and stylish set of ‘self-moisturising’ pyjamas. The high tech material contains microscopic capsules which are tasked with slowly releasing a sea kelp extract to keep your skin from drying out. The technology is said to last for up to ten washes, so lucky travellers can continue to enjoy the benefits when they disembark from the plane.
4. You’ll be gifted a decadent Bvlgari amenity kit
Once you’ve had your shower and put on your Emirates pyjamas, you can freshen up with your decadent first class amenity kit.
Fashioned from soft-grain grey leather, these stylish kits are filled with an assortment of Bvlgari goodies, including a moisturiser, lip balm and hand cream. You’ll even receive a generously sized bottle of eau de parfume. There are separate male and female versions of the kit, and the leather pouches come in a variety of shapes and styles.
5. You can access refreshments at the touch of a button
The Emirates A380 first class suite features your very own personal, motorised mini bar. Stocked with various non alcoholic drink options, the mini bar is a thoughtful addition to your seat. Best of all, it’s fully motorised, so you can access a bottle of Perrier or soda simply by pressing a button.
The items outlined above are just some of the amazing features of the Emirates first class suite. If you’re yet to experience first class air travel, we’d encourage you to give it a go.
And it’s important to note that Emirates first class isn’t just the domain of the rich and famous. It can be booked readily using frequent flyer points and miles from loyalty schemes like Emirates Skywards and Qantas Frequent Flyer. You can easily earn a stack of points and miles through a popular.
