The private suite aboard the A380 allows guests to slide the privacy doors close and enjoy a moment of solitude on Dubai’s flagship airline. Passengers can turn down the ambient lighting and immerse themselves in all things luxury, while the sumptuous a la carte menu allows travelers to enjoy a bite of the regionally inspired dishes, which can be accompanied by a selection of fine wines selected by the in-flight sommeliers.

The comfortable seats convert into a fully flat bed and mattress, allowing guests to feel fully rested upon arrival, while the personal mini bar and entertainment system provides an exclusive private cinema.

After you’ve enjoyed a good night’s sleep, guests can freshen up with a rejuvenating shower at 40,000ft using a selection of Bvlgari toiletries and signature Timeless Spa products.
