Emirates Suite

First Class Suites On Emirates

Emirates First Class suites on their Boeing 777’s are incredible! The airline’s new 777-300ERs are each equipped with six of the new suites. They have 40 square feet of space per passenger and feature floor to ceiling sliding doors for complete privacy. They are in a clever 1-1-1 configuration, but the suites in the centre of the aircraft  feature “windows” which are actually TV screens, with the outside world transmitted to them from cameras on the outside of the aircraft!…

Flying Qatar Airways to Cape Town

We had been planning a trip to Cape Town for some time, and once we knew the overall plan, we got to the airline decision. I’d wanted to fly Qatar for ages – they’ve built up a great reputation, won many awards and call themselves “The five star” airline. Qatar are relatively new to the international scene, but they have a super modern fleet and they use the incredible new airport at Doha as a hub – you fly there,…
