    Looks like an awesome flight! I’ll be having my first first class flight experience with Cathay Pacific in March – JFK – Hong Kong. Thanks for posting and sharing pics!

    How does one complain about Emirates? :-). Alas, all I have is a video of the Suites at a conference and a flight in Economy class on the A380 as well as the 773 – LOL.

    Its way cool to have a shower at 35,000′!

    A bottle or 2 of Dom in 7.5 hours, geeez dude :-).

    Thanks for sharing.

    Did you get that with miles or did you pay full price?

    How did you book? EK/JL miles? Paid deal ex-CMB?

    With suites. With an on board shower room…

    Did you?

    If you used miles, how many and which airline?

    Looks awesome. I hope to fly LH F later this year for the first time, so hopefully it’s at least somewhat comparable. BTW, you had rum but what was the 21-year-old scotch? Lagavulin? Glenmorangie?

    I recently flew LH muc-ord on a A340 in their new product. Much better than the old, with big screens, a screen at your seat that can be raised for privacy, etc. I will write a trip report whenever I have a bit of time.

    Wow. Great photos. I think they would have had to forcibly remove me from the suite.

    […] some exceptional First Class products out there. The Emirates A380 suites are quite enjoyable and taking a shower while flying is both wonderful and ridiculous, for example. Even when flying on points I generally find it hard to justify the incremental cost […]
