We demand in-flight showers!

Emirates Airline took possession of its first double-decker Airbus A380 this week. The big news? The first-class washrooms are equipped with showers…. And it’s about time we say!  For too long, first-class passengers have been forced to suffer through long flights, with only enough leg room to lay down in a space no bigger than a single bed. They’ve been served little more than champagne, hot towels, and three-course meals. Enough is enough! Airlines need to get serious about service and on-board spas are an important first step. Good work Emirates.  Let this be a warning to airlines everywhere.  Showers for all!
