“This is more comfortable than my bed at home.”

It’s safe to say you don’t know luxury until you’ve showered in a spacious, gilded bathroom stocked with organic skincare products more than 40,000 feet in the air.

Filmmaker Casey Neistat documented his 14-hour journey from Dubai to New York aboard one of the fanciest vessels out there.

Emirates upgraded the YouTube personality from business to first class for free. The seat would have cost him more than $21,000, he said. And while it might seem unimaginable to think of spending that amount of money on, well, anything, just wait until you see the luxuries he enjoyed.

He was treated to automatic window shades.

Just touch a button.

And caviar.

Again, just touch a button.

A personal bar.

Yep, you still just need to touch a button.

And just wait until you see the bed, swag bag and bathroom.

Watch the video above to continue drooling over Neistat’s flight experience on the airline that a Skytrax survey has found is the world’s best. And remember ― even though your coach seat only comes with free pretzels, at least it costs less than a small home.

SMC South Africa Employee Loses Job for using k-word

Published

on

An employee of SMC South Africa Alochna Moodley, who admitted to using the k-word in reference to a black flight captain and passengers in an SMS, has been dismissed from work with immediate effect.



“A recent incident has been brought to the company’s attention [and] at SMC [Pneumatics], we do not tolerate any form of racism,” said Kevin O’Carroll, managing director at SMC South Africa.

This follows Moodley calling two black passengers – Reverend Solumuzi Mabuza and Sibusiso Magubane – as well as Captain Menzi Mvelase by the k-word on a flight from OR Tambo International to King Shaka Airport last Friday night.

She was called out by Mabuza, who was seated next to her and saw her typing the k-word on her phone, when she was expressing anger that someone on the flight was drunk while another person was “sniffing”.

Moodley was immediately escorted off the Kulula.com flight when the incident was brought to the airline crew’s attention.

On her part, Moodley admitted her offence to newsmen and blamed it on being frustrated.

She said: “It was a mistake on my side, I am not going to deny that I said those things.

“Yes, it’s wrong for me to make those racial remarks but it was my SMS, so why was he [Mabuza] looking at my phone?

He invaded my privacy and I feel like this thing was blown out of proportion,” she said at the time.
