[CONTINUATION OF THE EK248 FLIGHT FROM BUENOS AIRES]
After 5 hours wait in an incredible lounge, we headed to gate 3 (inside the lounge). Our new a380 was waiting for us there, the A6-EEH. If I'm honest, I was hoping to get one of the new a380's because of the new ICE. It was the first time I boarded an a380, and thankfully it was in Emirates Business class because I was really looking forward to use the Sky Lounge/bar. Once I boarded, I proceeded to take some pictures of the seat and It's features.
My Seat 9A with the new Tablet.
The In-Seat Mini Bar.
The new HD ICE screen (with golden wood trims)
One thing I noticed, is that the mini bar should really get some kind of cooling system.. because everything except maybe the pineapple juice becomes undrinkable after a few hours of flight.. and not that if I ask any flight attendant I can get a glass of anything that is in there. Other than that, the seat is amazing. It's very comfortable, spacious and very private. It really doesn't look nor feel like Business class.. As soon as I was settled, waiting to take off, my Flight Attendant came and introduced himself. He showed me the seat features and explained to me what meals we were going to have. I'm sorry to say that i forgot to take pictures of the menu. I'll see if my brother took some, and will add them in the future if I get them. But before I start with that, the ammenity kit. I forgot to take a picture of the other flight's kit, but it is the same as this one. Really complete Ammenity kit.. I even kept it :D. Here's a Picture.
The Ammenity Kit, and a Glass of Möet Chandon Champagne.
Now I can go back to the meals. It was 3am, so the meals consisted in some Light Bites right after take off and then breakfast. The light Bites had two sandwiches, an Indian Chicken curry with rice, a fruit tart, some fruits and some other snacks. I chose the Chicken Curry. Now, the plate was small.. but it was the best Curry I've tried in my life.. Excellent. Breakfast consisted in omeletes, scambled eggs, pankcakes, etc. Again, I wasn't feeling like eating eggs for breakfast.. so I just had the fruit, bread and the croissant. Will get to that later. Here's a picture of the amazing Curry.
The Indian Chicken Curry, was spicy (love it) and really tasteful. Also had a glass of an Australian Chardonnay.
After this Amazing meal, I went to see the Sky Bar. I was impressed.. Lots of High quality brand alcohol, snacks, and a really attentive and skilled barman. I took some pictures of the Bar that talk for themselves. The bar is stocked with thing from Wine (red and white), Champagne, Grey Goose Vodka, to Bombay Sapphire Gin and Hennessy Cognac. I had, to start, a Dry Vodka Martini (which was the first time I had one, and was really good). Then I tried some snacks, which were really tasty. And then I had a Gin and tonic, also very good. Here are some pictures.
A (half) panorama of the Bar.
Behind the bar there's this screen showing the map, and some more snacks!
The Barman and the very well stocked bar (and some snacks).
After a while, of chatting with some fellow passengers, the barman and some flight attendants, I headed back to my seat. I setted it in bed mode, and after a few minutes, I was fast asleep. Really comfortable seat. I was waken up, as asked, in the morning to have breakfast. Here's a picture of it.
The bread, missing croissant, and fruit plate.
We arrived Shortly after to Pekin (Beijing). I took a last picture of my a380. Will miss the giant of the skies.
Migrations and Security were really fast in Beijing's Airport. Another thing that was really good, was the fact that baggage came out in order of class. I've travelled a lot of times in First and Business classes, but never before they really respected the class Luggage.. or at least with us. We were quickly outside the Airport with our guide (we didn't book Chauffeur for this part), ridding Rolls Royce to the Hotel (will post pictures when I get them from my brother's camera).
The following Sections will be posted in Mid February, when my next Emirates Flights will take place. Hope you enjoy what was written till now, any questions/corrections/whatever will be answered and corrected as soon as i see them! thanks in advance!
