Melbourne Emirates Airbus A380 Business Class

22 May 2016

Internet in the sky

For the first time ever, I have used wifi in the sky. I have used 3G/4G in the sky before illegally over Australia but this is different.
Emirates provide a satellite service so it works out in the middle of the Indian Ocean, or over the Great Australian Bight/Bite/Byte so you can tweet your own demise.
It worked great at first, but it got slower as the flight went on as more people decided to give it a try, until it basically didnt work as we were on approach to Dubai.

I have been severely over fed, and continuously turned away food, and much to the confusion of every single hostess on board, I did not want wine or champagne or any other kind of drink every 4 minutes (yes less than 5).
The plane also features a cocktail lounge, and showers, I wasnt entitled to use the showers which is a shame because that would be fun, NUDE IN SPACE, or something, and I only ever got water from the cocktail lounge.

The seat was comfortable enough, quite small though, even for me, yes it does lay flat but they give you a mini bar area in your seat for no good reason as there are un refrigerated drinks in it.
It wasnt full either, not that it matters as much when you have your own accommodation pod, perhaps the best thing was the mattress topper that made the leather seats a lot more comfortable as a bed.

Unfortunately I dont have anything funny to say about the flight, perhaps the next leg to Manchester will provide some more entertainment in the form of people I cant understand due to their speaking of the queens own English.

Pretty good amenity kit, I used the toothbrush and hair brush and of course the bvlgari body spray. No pyjamas on Emirates though! I saw some seasoned Qantas Business flyers in their grey pyjamas, looking proud.

You can watch the live feed from multiple cameras which is fun for a few minutes, then just blackness, which is also fun, I stared into the black for an hour or so.

For whatever reason you get this wireless tablet thing to attempt to control the screen with, it is useless, the main screen is also a touch screen and there is also a wired remote, which works about 1000 times better than the wireless touch screen thing.

Meal 3 - there were about 8 breakfast options, I chose the light express option due to there being so many meals already and presumably a heap more to come on the leg to Manchester.
