It’s not hard to see why Emirates won the coveted Skytrax “World’s Best Airline,” award in 2013 and “World’s Best Inflight Entertainment” 9 years running. It boasts the youngest fleet in the world with all the latest comfort and design features, and puts a whopping 1600 channels of movies, TV, sports and games at your fingertips. Young Flyers are treated to special entertainment, meals, toys and even complimentary birthday cake. First class has well appointed private suites with ambient lighting, personal minibar and cushy massage-enabled seat which converts into a full flat bed. Multi-course gourmet cuisine includes such temptations as wild Iranian caviar, Arabic mezze, glazed duck breast, lamb brochette and sticky date pudding, all served on Royal Doulton bone china and fine linens with sommelier selected wines to accompany all but Saudi-bound meals. Grab a mixed cocktail and some hors d’oeuvres on the upper deck lounge and don’t miss the traditional High Tea service. First class passengers on A380s can schedule a hot shower in one of two in-air Shower Spas, complete with marble sinks, top-of-the-line toiletries and plush towels. It will be hard to come back to earth after a luxurious flight on this airline.
