Who wouldn’t want to shower at 40,000 feet? First-class passengers on Emirates A380 can do so on the upper deck, where two showers have heated floors and exclusive spa products. Also on the upper deck are two lounges where other first-class passengers mingle over hors d’oeuvres and premium drinks (think Grand Cru). Or, just head into your private cabin with a remote-controlled sliding door, and eat five-star cuisine paired with wines chosen by a sommelier. Once you lie back on the 79-inch, massage-enabled flat bed, you’ll gaze up at the stars projected on the ceiling, as if you’re going to sleep in the desert.
