DUBAI: Emirates’ premium flyers can now enjoy the airline’s newly revamped lounge aboard the world’s largest passenger plane.
The redesigned airplane bar made its operational debut on a flight to Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday, 1 August, marking the ninth anniversary of Emirates’ A380 service.
The plush lounge is one of the fancy amenities that Emirates’ business and first-class passengers get to enjoy on a double decker aircraft.
This is where high flyers can while away the time in the sky, as they sip a cup of coffee or a glass of bubbly while watching live TV broadcasts of the latest news or sports updates.
A popular social spot at 40,000 feet, the lounge stocks fine beverages such Moet & Chandon and Hennesy. It went through a makeover after it was first introduced on August 1, 2008 and now features a look inspired by private yacht cabins with a more intimate and social area.
Emirates have a fleet of A380s that fly to 48 cities on six continents, serving 80 million passengers since 2008.
The airline prides itself in employing more than 6,000 crew who can easily whip up 14 cocktails in the sky.
