Emirates | First class review on the Airbus A380

Flying is a metaphor of changing, freedom, leaving the problems behind us, being bold and brave. The dream of the human kind since the beginning of time (honorable mention to Icarus, the man who flew too high in his quest to glory), is now possible trough magnificent machines called airplanes. Not only the aeronautical engineering has changed over the years but the interior design of the planes has even more. First class in the 60’s were just comfortable seats with a good amount of reclining. Today this is called premium economy class.

After reviewing the business class it’s time to make a left turn when boarding the plane and head to the 14 suites of the first class, to discover its wonders and its surprises. Continue reading “Emirates | First class review on the Airbus A380”
