Emirates airlines are currently having a bit of a promotion on Business Class flights from Dubai to Bangkok.
This was perfectly timed (by them) as the promotion was launched 12 minutes after I had booked Miss Tim and I on a flight to Bangkok. Bastards.
The problem with cheap business class seats – is you attract a lower-class of person. No, I am not being a snob, but at the front end of the plane you expect a certain kind of behavior from people. Hell, I ‘expect’ a certain kind of behavior from people all the time, but am always disappointed.
Last night Miss Tim and I boarded the A380 as per usual. Took our seats, got comfy, settled down for a movie and bit of a nap. Smiling faces, pearly white smiles all around and everyone being over polite. A bit of me that.
However, since the ‘raff’ were now on the upper-deck, the nice ambiance was compromised.
It’s a night flight – all lights out, people tucked up in bed sleeping. Not the ‘raff’. Oh no, they need to stand up and talk as loud as they can to each other.
They need to drink as much as they can at the bar and chat up the cabin crew.
They need to walk around the plane with their crying little bastard babies.
They need to keep opening the windows to see nothing but bright light beam across the cabin
They stuff their faces with every available bit of food on the counters (at the bar)
They need to keep taking ‘selfies’ every 7 minutes.
One guy (total weirdo) had the hiccups and made the most absurd, loud noise I have ever heard come from a human. The guy just sat there hiccuping as loud as he could. – tosser.
When I run the world, I think I’ll make it compulsory to have everyone sit an interview before being allowed in the Business section of a plane.
When we disembarked the plane – the cabin looked like the insides of one of those tour buses that has rolled down a mountain in the French alps. Bloody peasants the lot of them.
There is no way I am paying more than double to fly 1st class – so I guess I’ll just have to sit it out and wait until the promotion ends and normal service is resumed.
Until then I will just shake my head as these scumbags go in and out of the toilets in bare feet or socks. Do they think that is water on the floor in there?
For those of you who have seen the Emirates advert with Jennifer Aniston looking for the shower – please don’t be fooled into thinking this is anything like the reality.
Right now I am in soi 8. Got some errands to run and then hitting the town later.
Tomorrow night should be a big one. Was supposed to start at lunchtime but Jonas is getting a bit old for it all and can’t start until 4pm. And even then he is having a ‘quiet-ish’ night. What’s wrong with these people.
Time to find a Gory Bell…..
