After breakfast, I walked over to the spa and booked my complimentary treatment. I have no shame being “that passenger” that capitalizes on each and every benefit of my first class upgrade. Free pampering, I’m there.
I booked the De-Stress Back Massage and had a fantastic 20 minute rub down in a seated massage chair (last time I had a massage in the first class lounge, my masseuse bragged he had given Nadal a massage a couple days earlier). It was so good that I booked my husband one with the same lady as I left.
After checking some emails in the lounge’s comfy chairs, our flight was called. If you have been to Dubai airport, you know how massive it is and how long it can take to get to your gate. A glorious benefit of flying on the A380 is that the plane boards right outside the lounges and you can maximize the lap of luxury in the lounge.
This post is getting pretty lengthy (clearly I love re-living this magical experience), so I am going to split it up. Be excited for all the details on the food, wine, amenities, and entertainment that ensued for the next 14 hours of flying time.
