Flying in a First Class Private Suite Aboard an Emirates Airbus A380

On April 30, 2011 Volterrific treated himself to a First Class Suite on Emirates Airlines A380 Super Jumbo from Bangkok to Hong Kong and vlogged his experiance. The newest, biggest, and arguably most advanded airliner in the world. So first class of the first class flagship of the planet better be good.

Appropriately, the first thing he sees is a fresh and crisp newspaper nuzzled on his desk with the perfect Prince William and Catherine Middleton kiss from their wedding the day before. Your newspaper should have royalty on the cover in a near royal suite damn it!

He has a access to a private bathroom and shower. His suite has a remote control to close the doors to create his own private room. Nothing more can be said.

At the end, he shows the peasantry common folk in economy, and the contrast couldn’t be anymore apparent. Ahh, to live the good life.

On April 30, 2011 I treated myself to a First Class Suite on Emirates Airlines A380 Super Jumbo from Bangkok to Hong Kong. Yes it was $550 USD one way in April 2011. I think it’s closer to $650 now. The flight is? less than 3 hours, but you get the full first class experience. I’m a huge fan of Singapore Airlines, but I must say this Emirates experience impressed me.

An experience on Emirates First Class Suites between Bangkok and Hong Kong – including views of the Emirates Lounge at BKK. The first class cabin on this flight was virtually empty, only 5 of 16 suites occupied. Business Class was not even full. I could not get a good view out of the window, and it was very bumpy coming through the clouds with the descent into Hong Kong (sorry for a few shaky moments there). Recorded May 3, 2012.
