If you don’t own a plane but still want to travel in true international Jet set style, then you need to know about the Emirates Airline and their new Airbus A-380. Emirates is based out of Dubai and is the seventh-largest passenger airline in the world, but Emirates luxury experience is an unrivaled first.
If you think you know what flying first class feels like, you have no idea until you experience an Emirates flight because they are bringing luxury to an all new high. The Airbus A-380 is both a lavish and futuristic airplane built for the wealthiest people of the world. When flying First Class with Emirates you will be an elite member of the best kind of mile high club.
Your First Class private suite awaits you with electronically operated sliding doors, a mini-bar, adjustable ambient lighting, and a vanity table with mirror and wardrobe. Each seat has an adjustable massage system which can be converted into a full flat bed and if you are traveling with a lover, just lower the center privacy divider and enjoy each other’s company. We don’t recommend sleeping through the entire flight because you will be missing out on heaven. Play on the Emirates high-speed, in-flight wireless Internet while browsing through 1,200 On Demand channels, on your private 23″ flat screen. In flight passengers are able to use mobile phones to call or text people on the ground and now there is a docking station for your iPod. The docking capability allows you to play your own iPod music, television shows and movies through the In-Flight Entertainment system, while simultaneously charging your battery.
The award-winning multilingual crew will serve you a la carte with selections made by world renown chefs. After your meal, take a walk over to the exclusive bar and lounge area where you’ll rub elbows with high society and sip world-class wines, selected by Emirates sommeliers. If your thirst for luxury still hasn’t been quenched, then indulge in the Airbus A-380’s Shower Spas. For the first time in history you can take a refreshing shower 43,000 feet above ground. Choose from the Spa Revive kit or Spa Relax kit, both made from the finest natural ingredients by Emirates. By the time the Emirates Airbus lands you will feel as if you had just walked out of a 5 star hotel.
The A-380 Airbus development program has grown to be more then an $11 billion operation, so in the scheme of things what’s $15,000 for a roundtrip flight? We say it’s a bargain. Inaugural flights between New York’s JFK and Dubai began on August 1st, 2008, international destinations are being added.
