At the risk of upsetting Nan, I will add my comments to this post. Over the past two and a half years I have been back and forth between Bangkok and Dubai on many occasions, always traveling with Emirates. They operate the A380 on this route and I have had the chance to sample Economy, Business and First. Economy is perfectly adequate and the drinks trolley comes round very frequently. Business is very good and you can stretch out full length.  You can also wander down the plane to the bar if you get bored. On one occasion I was upgraded to First, but it was not such a big improvement on Business. Maybe it was because it was a night flight but there was not much opportunity to sample fine foods and fine wines. Also, the bed is no better than Business. I would definitely not spend my own money to upgrade to first.  On my last trip to Dubai, the plane was a 777 which is not nearly as good as the A380. So I hope this was just a one off occurrence.

She upsets herself, she doesn't need any help. As for myself i have always traveled cattle class, it doesn't bother me and always someone to chat to, more money to spend when you get there. My first trip to Thailand was with thai airways and found the staff on this particular flight somewhat rude, asking people to keep their voice down, some want to sleep. then they shoulda gone first class people replied, hence the drinks trolley disappeared. You could tell the attendants were tired, probably overworked and wanted some shut eye themselves.

Then i started using eva, much better price and always pleasant staff. on my last return trip we were upstairs on a double decker, loads of room. Odd though nobody pays the same price for their ticket. Thai airways first class you even get jammies.

THE BILLIONAIRE LIFESTYLE OF DUBAI !!! Flying first class is one thing, living first class is another.

Good comment under the vid. Nothing against rich people, but it's just too much responsibility, the last prophet could've had palaces and all the wealth in the world, but made sure to live a humble life because God judges accordingly how one spends the wealth in their life, it's all a test, but people will see on the Day of Resurrection, we're all going to be born and raised up again just as we are easily born on earth, peace.?

Hi Thaiga, thanks for posting the video. It confirms my worst suspicions about Dubai. I have never been to Dubai.  Well, that statement is more or less true.  I have been there 30 times in the last two and a half years but not once have I stepped outside the airport.  Instead, I stay in the Emirates lounge and top up on the free smoked salmon and champagne. (Nan, eat your heart out)  Some of my work colleagues rave about Dubai:- huge shopping malls (yawn, yawn), ski slopes (yawn), aquarium (yawn), tallest building in the world (yawn, yawn, yawn).  Without wishing to be rude to my colleagues, Dubai probably does appear to be the height of sophistication if you happen to be from a run-down mining village in the UK.  One colleague had quite a bit to drink in one of the hotel bars, came staggering out and started a conversation with some policemen.  The kindly policemen provided him with a cell for 3 days whilst he sobered up. As I understand it the hotels are all very expensive and drinks in the bars are also very highly priced.  Thailand is a much better place to be.

Thanks for that info T/T, Dubai capital of the Emirates, over rated and over priced, Abu Dhabi is the second most populous city.
Come and meet your in flight butler. a review of Etihad Airways A380 The Residence from Abu Dhabi to Mumbai. Having your own three room suite, including a private bedroom and shower, with butler service, is a once in a lifetime experience, do you need all that though.

Yes, Thaiga.  It takes away half the fun if the ordinary people cannot watch you indulging yourself.  Maybe the jet should be fitted with a live Youtube link so that the great unwashed can press their noses against the window pane.
