A glimpse of Dubai

By ColleenA
Good afternoon...finally arrived in a rainy London and we are now in Winchester and the sun has arrived with me....about to visit the local pub for lunch...
We had a wonderful flight on Emirates...as an early birthday present for me and a celebration of Robs retirement we flew 1st class via Dubai. The A380 is a stunning experience and I even had a shower at 35,000 ft above the earth. The bathroom was bigger than most of us have at Home. Must say the bar was also a great feature on board...the flight was a really lovely treat...
This is an image captured with my cell phone at the Dubai airport...will upload a few images of the interior of the plane..you have your own little pod with doors that close and inside you have sweets and chocolates and a make up mirror with products as well as a writing desk as well as ones own mini bar...you also get pajamas and slippers.....all I need now is to win the lottery, going to be hard to fly Economy in future knowing whats up front GrinGrinGrin
I am meeting Martyn from epz at the Winchester Cathedral on Monday morning with my camera ...
Have a great day...catch up later.

Brilliant Colleen, but would you have flown on it if you'd known that I make parts for it?

You'll enjoy Winchester and the cathedral. An old stomping ground of mine. I used to have a pub in Easton (Chestnut Horse) a couple of miles away. Your flight and goodies looked incredible. Have a great time during your stay.

How fantastic. What a treat! Not surprised all these film stars and billionaires strop about if they're not pandered to hand and foot if this is what they get used to.

Thank you for sharing this awesome experience. Have a great day in Winchester. One of my favourite towns in the UK (used to live very close). Have a meal at Brasserie Blanc if you get the chance. Great food.

After the accommodation and facilities in the aircraft, you're now having to slum it in the UK.

Unless you go to John's house which is most lilkely kitted out the same Grin

What a posh cabin, Colleen! They seem to have thought of everything. Incredible experience, of course. Your cell phone has done an amazing job. I love V1, that's great and the kind of shot I would love to have taken. A super set!
Great set, Colleen. Looks lavishSmileSmile
I am enjoying my hols in West Cornwall.

First Class is different class and certainly your pictures are the best I've seen in an aircraft!
You must have been very good to deserve all that.

Best wishes for a happy holiday and more sunshine.
