It was time to board yet again.

I boarded with first and business class, which were called nearly together. I was jealous of those in first for this leg, but excited to try out business class.

The business class cabin on the A380 is absolutely massive. It honestly feels like economy, though service is anything but. I agree with other bloggers, in that the service felt a bit like an assembly line. Though, with a light load tonight, there was still plenty of personalized service.

As you can see, the seat isn’t that vastly different than the first class seat up front. In fact, these business class seats lie completely flat as well, unlike the 777-300’s that Emirates flies.

Headphones were the standard business class ones, instead of the cushier, “nicer” ones in first.

Plenty of plugs for electronics…

and a touch screen controller, in addition to the tablet-like device to the left of the seat.

There is also a smaller mini-bar, which I appreciated nonetheless.

I like it when airlines give you a sticker to indicate whether to be woken up. Hate to miss a meal!

After sitting down, I was asked what my preferred beverage would be. Wouldn’t you know, I wanted some more champagne!

Here were the menus for my flight:

 

I was all settled in, and ready to go, all smiles!

After departing, I rushed back to the A380’s bar, which is only for first and business class passengers. I didn’t head back there during my last flight, because first class was so amazing.

The lounge is awesome. I can see it being very popular on longer flights, where stretching your legs is a must.

I had a whiskey, while the bartender set up the bar properly.

I even got to bartend a little bit!

The flight was pretty short, but I was happy to get a full meal. I went with the braised-beef tenderloin this time.

Overall

I loved business class on the A380, too! It’s plenty comfortable and private for a solo travel on longer haul flights, if you nab a window seat. For couples, I would get the two inside seats for more intimacy. While I loved first class, I think that business class would be perfectly fine for me for future travels.
