Emirates 🇦🇪 is an airline that eluded me for a remarkably long time. People have always been shocked to hear that I'd never flown with them... Until now.
As first impressions go this was exceptional. I was lucky to get an almost brand new plane with better beds🛏️, higher walls, bigger screens📺 and spotlessly clean finishes throughout.
From the outset my expectations were exceeded.
How did I book? 🤔
When a 1600GBP business class fare from London 🇬🇧 to Jo'burg 🇿🇦 popped up in January, coinciding with a 200GBP cashback offer from Amex Platinum, I couldn't resist. When you factor in the ease of upgrading using Amex points, this was an absolute steal.

I have a phone again! For those who don’t know, I pretty much lost my (somewhat ancient) mobile the moment we started our trip 🤦🏻♀️ and spent the next week and a half without one (because you try getting hold of a new iPhone in the Bush in Zimbabwe). Being without it was actually easier than expected and dare I say it ... maybe even refreshing? So anyway, let’s catch up a bit.
This was my first time flying Emirates and it didn’t disappoint. The crew were pleasant and knowledgable; having individual bowls filled with snacks at each seat felt indulgent to a serial snacker like me 😂; closing doors for privacy is always a huge plus; the drinks list is excellent (P2, anyone? 🍾) and the pjs provided are my favourite yet! Unfortunately the only aspect I found was a bit of a let down was the food, which was just okay. Still, overall, a pretty fantastic product otherwise.

The latest Emirates A380s to be delivered not only have a brand new onboard bar design, they also feature a number of incremental updates to the First Class suites that first debuted in 2010.
1. The walls are higher, for increased privacy (although even with the door open you really don't see any other passengers). 2. The TV screen increases from 27" to 32" 📺 and is has far better contrast, meaning you can watch with the window shades open and you can also tune into Live TV.
3. The bed is more comfortable and more stable 🛏️(the first generation ones sloped at the feet slightly)
4. The tray table no longer requires an additional prop and has been redesigned for extra stability.
None of these are changes that have been particularly heavily advertised but all address concerns that frequent flyers had with the older planes.
This to me is indicative of a company that responds to feedback and is willing to do what is necessary in order to ensure that passengers are happy.
Are there any glaring issues that you wish other airlines would fix in their First Class cabins? 🤔 (mine is the lack of a mattress on ANA)

Thankful for airplane mode and airline miles (among many other, less material things lol). Happy thanksgiving everyone, would be stoked to give back a little bit by answering some specific questions that can help you travel more/better, including how to book this seat if you’re interested!

Enjoying a glass (or two) of Dom Perignon P2 as my Château Lagrange 2006 opens up in my personal carafe.
As soon as the cabin manager told me that carafes were available to allow the red wines to breathe🍷, I knew this was going to be a great flight😁
There are plenty of people that criticise Emirates for the amount of 'bling' in the cabin but honestly I loved the design.
The minibar could be colder and is definitely a case of form over function but I found the orchids to be an elegant touch and the predominant colour palette, particularly once you have a tablecloth down, is quite neutral.
The gold and walnut flourishes are fun and not something I'd decorate my house with personally but I appreciate the nod to Emirati tastes. I'd rather have this than a generic off the shelf cabin any day (or the bright orange wall on Garuda F 😂)
What do you think of the design? Do you appreciate something a little extravagant every now and then?

My last Emirates post for a while. I promise 😁
Although EK were the first airline to put a proper bar 🍸 on a plane back in 2010, pulling back the curtain to see this enormous space dedicated to socialising, is still highly impactful today.
I loved spending time here chatting to the crew and other travellers.
Best of all, if you're flying in First the crew will fetch anything you want and stash it away under the bar so that you don't have to downgrade your drinks whilst you're here 😁🍾
What's you favourite bar on a plane? I remember thinking the ones on the Virgin A340s were incredible back in the day but they clearly pale in comparison to this (and even this and QR's offering are probably awful compared to the good old days where the entire upper deck of some 747s was basically a nightclub 😂)

Meet Roberto, one of our long-term residents from Rome, Italy. 🇮🇹Roberto came to Helsinki to open an Italian café in the Mall of Tripla, Italia Café & Delicatessen, and for now he shares his time between Helsinki and Rome. Besides owning two restaurants in Rome and in the Vatican, he also owns a hotel in Rome.
Roberto, what made you choose a serviced apartment at Koti for your stays in Helsinki?
- To me, hotel rooms often feel a bit cold no matter how fancy the hotel is. It’s important to me that the place feels like home. The furnishings and the atmosphere feel warm and inviting at Koti.
What's the best thing about staying at Koti?
- As a busy entrepreneur a good sleep is very important to me, so I highly value the peaceful bedroom and the comfortable bed. The amenities at Koti are very practical; there’s the dishwasher, washing machine and many more.
The highspeed wifi is essential for me. Also the location in the center is great, it’s easy to walk around here.
Thank you for the interview Roberto! 😊
