There’s first class and then there’s whatever it is that Emirates is offering its passengers.
YouTube star Casey Neistat, in his latest post, shows off what happened when he was magically bumped to first class on his Emirates flight from Dubai to New York City.
It’s something that had happened to me previously aboard another carrier. Sometimes an airline overbooks the flight and a remaining seat may just be in first class. It’s like winning a very small lotto.
In Neistat’s case, it was like winning a very sizable lotto, because his accommodations were ridiculously plush as you will see in this entertaining glimpse high above the ground in first class.
As Neistat begins, he tracked down the cheapest you might be able to enjoy a flight like this. It turns out you would have to fork over a whopping $21,635.30 to lay your head in luxury in this manner.

And, as you see from the video above, similar seats will have you flying in what is essentially your own private apartment, complete with automated sliding door. As for food, You order what you what, when you want and get a superior turn down service with a seat that turns into a bed.
Of course, the best part is the 30 minutes of shower time you have that comes with five minutes of running water. There are many ways to land refreshed from your long journey. But nothing beats a hot shower at 40,000 feet in the air.
As Neistat concludes, the entire experience of traveling is turned upside down as the pain of airline travel becomes an absolute highlight moment.
And to think, you only need an extra twenty grand or so laying around.
