- A380 round 2 - DXB to KUL
Emirates operates three daily flights to Melbourne from Dubai with one non-stop flight, one via Singapore an one via Kuala Lumpur. Although I would normally have gone with the non-stop, I opted for the option via Kuala Lumpur as it would get me into Melbourne just in time for the wedding I needed to attend.
I spent my ~4 hour layover in Dubai with first, a nap on one of the sofas before a shower followed by the complimentary fifteen minute back massage and a light late night supper/snack in the sit down restaurant in the first class lounge.

It was way past bed time when I got to the plane. After another couple of pre-departure Doms, all I wanted after take off was to hit the sack. My seat was promptly made into a bed right after changing into the pajamas. It did take a while to go to sleep as I struggled to find a comfortable position while some of the passengers in first class decided to get a bite.
I woke up about 2 hours before landing. Now this is what flying in first class is about - some fresh fruit, a good cup of coffee and some Dom to start the day with. To top it off, I started watching the now cancelled Pan-Am television show on the IFE which was about a group of Pan-Am stewardess and pilots back in its heyday. I found it pretty good and it reminded myself on how lucky I am to be able to fly around the world especially in first class.
