Photos Emerge of Emirates A380 Showers: Tiny, But Luxurious

See that happy-looking lady in the pic? She's standing in an Emirates A380 in-flight shower room, details of which have emerged after we first alerted you to this airborne luxury. The "shower spas" are pretty decently kitted-out, and the aircraft carries an extra 1,100-pounds of water to allow every one of the 14 first-class passengers to have a splash. As a result, the shower only runs for five minutes, and there's a traffic-light system to let you know how the time's going. And if you're planning on trying to form a new "mile-high, in the shower" club, you'd better forget it: the showers are small, "designed for single usage."

That extra 1,000 pounds of water (25% more than usual) means the aircraft will have to carry more fuel, which may weigh heavy on your environmental conscience. Or maybe lying in your massage bed in the private first class room, with remote-control doors and mini bar will make you forget your woes. [Mail on Sunday]

Wow, so much hate to islamic practices....full of ourselves much?

I'm not islamic, but I defend ANYONE'S right to believe what they want to believe. It's not any other country or culture's responsibility to cast judgement on another.

If you don't agree with another person's practices, then don't practice them, but you can't judge or condemn the other person because they do.

That said....even at my scientifically determined ideal weight I would not be able to squeeze myself into such a tiny shower. It would still feel like showering in the sink, albeit a slightly larger sink.
