We know of many passengers who grumble over the no-smoking rule applicable on most flights. Scouring hastily for their tobacco fix even before baggage collection, is a scene we’ve seen played out one, two many times.
However, travellers to the Middle East could just get lucky next month, courtesy a shisha lounge facility on board select Airbus A380 aircrafts in the Emirates fleet.
A trial run that may become a permanent fixture by year end, this service allows you to order your choice of hookah from a menu, and proceed to the lounge after the main meal.
Restricted only to first class and business class passengers, the facility is one of the many premium offerings serviced up by Emirates for its high-paying customers.
Luring the locals with this traditional activity and giving the newbies a taste of the land is quite a smart move, if we may say so ourselves!
