YouTube star Casey Neistat has given the swanky suites of Emirates Air his seal of approval.
Emirates the Middle East’s largest air carrier has just unveiled its brand new, state-of-the-art first class suites, estimated to cost from £7,000 per flight. The fully-enclosed cabins measure 40 square-feet (3.7-square-metres) and are billed as ‘game-changers’ with their privacy, gourmet dining, mood lighting and 32 in. TV screens.
Neistat traveled from Brussels to Dubai in the ‘all-time greatest airplane seat’.
‘It feels like a small but extremely elegant hotel room than it does an airplane seat,’ he says on his vlog.
The seats feature floor-to-ceiling sliding doors for maximum solitude. Most provide a window view, which can be enjoyed with a personal pair of binoculars.
Those without a window view, are given ‘virtual windows’, which live-stream views from the plane via fiber optic external cameras so they don’t miss out.
The cabins also come with a personal wardrobe, private storage space for carry-on bags, soft lighting and temperature settings that can be customised at a touch of a button.
‘The legroom borders on the ridiculous,’ continues Neistat. ‘You could fit a small family down here [said as he squeezes under the table in front of his seat].’
The suite comes with two screens [the 32in one and one iPad] that are not connected, so you can double-screen to your heart’s content.
Neistat marvels at the video call facility, which puts passengers through to the cabin crew via the iPad.
‘It really was all it’s cracked up to be,’ he concludes as he disembarks. ‘It was everything I ever wanted.’
Jeremy Clarkson, of Emirates, said: ‘Seriously, these new seats on Emirates are better than half the hotels I ever stay in.’
