The Emirates A380
My younger sister, the girl who gets a lot of awesome work-related perks, has recently returned from an official trip in Bangkok aboard the Emirates A380. She took a lot of pictures, much to my delight. So all the pictures posted here belong to her. I have nothing to do with them whatsoever.
The food, obviously. But she didn't mention what it was.
Stairs leading up to the bar (one thing that shouldn't be in an aircraft that belongs to a Muslim country, but well ...) and social area of the first class passengers.
A personal mini-bar and touch-screen, wireless remote to manage to seat with massage facility.
But this post is not about the A380 as a whole. This post is about the bathroom of the A380.
The attention to detail is unreal. They even have heated floors.
A window to enjoy the, well, clouds.
On these flights, an extra staff (non cabin crew) is carried to assist passengers wanting to use the bathroom, and to take care of these showers/spa.
There's also a hair dryer.
Bvlgari perfumes and timeless spa lotions, separate for men and women.
Who could refuse clean, good-smelling, fluffy towels?
Timeless Spa products developed for Emirates by the German brand Babor.
Although the shower time is limited to 5 minutes, one can stay in the bathroom for 20-30 minutes (sampling all the products available).
The showers are regulated through a software program that gives people a five-minute shower, with a traffic light system that lets people know how long they had left. So if you're on amber and your hair's full of shampoo, you want to get moving.
Keep your eye on the illuminated timer, which counts down the allotted five minutes, but you can stop the shower any time by pushing a button.
But I find this picture really funny …
