Flying with Emirates in first class from Stockholm to Bangkok via Dubai allowed me to appreciate the real beauty of their private suites. But since the aircraft I flew with were Boeing 777s and not an Airbus 380, I missed the most essential part of flying in first class: the Shower Spa. I knew from the time I booked this flight that at least the Bangkok to Hong Kong segment would be operated by an Airbus 380, so you could just imagine my excitement that day 😉

The other choice for the appetizer was "Lemongrass chicken".
The other choices for the main course were: "Chicken rogan josh", "Stir-fried three flavour prawns" and "Spiral pasta with fresh tomato".
After having my main course, I decided to skip the desserts and the coffee because I had something more special waiting for me. You guessed it right! The Shower Spa had been prepared by the flight attendant and I was about to take my "Shower in the Sky".

Arrival in Hong Kong
After less than 3 hours of flying, we landed safely at the Hongkong International Airport, where I was bound to take PAL's evening flight to Manila.
Needless to say, having "shower in the sky" is definitely the best part of flying in first class with Emirates. Of course, the rest was also exceptional. The food tasted excellent. The lamb was no doubt the best meal I have ever tasted aboard an aircraft. The service was once again impeccable, very professional and yet friendly. The private suites are unparalleled. I really wished the flight was longer. And the fact that Emirates is the only airline who has an onboard shower spa, I truly believe that this flight deserves a perfect score of 10! Once again, Shukran Emirates 😍
