Emirates’ seriously swanky new First Class suites with ‘zero gravity’ seats, moisturising pyjamas and 32-inch HD TVs



Share With Friends:

Emirates has just unveiled its brand new cabins for its Boeing 777 aircraft – and the First Class cabins are insanely luxurious.

We’re talking ‘you get your very own private suite’ luxurious.

Forget getting stuck next to a fellow passenger who decides an eight-hour flight is the perfect excuse to tell you their life story; in First Class, you’ll get a fully enclosed suite with a floor-to-ceiling sliding door for total privacy.

You don’t even have to leave the suite if you need to talk to cabin crew thanks to the handy video call function which allows passengers to request room service.

Oh, and did we mention there’s a service window so you can get your drinks and canapes without needing to be disturbed?

Then, there are the seats. Forget a lack of legroom and the neck pains you get from an uncomfortable headrest. For Emirates’ new First Class cabins, they’ve taken comfort very seriously.

So seriously in fact that they even looked to NASA to work out the best seat for optimal relaxation.

The result? A soft leather recliner seat that not only turns into a fully flat bed, but can also be placed in a ‘zero gravity’ position inspired by NASA technology that offers a feeling of weightlessness.

And when you’re ready to get changed into your pyjamas for a snooze, there’s still plenty of space to move around even with the bed fully flat.

Speaking of pyjamas, passengers will be treated to special Hydra Active moisturising pyjamas – so no dry skin at landing for them! Also on the list of treats includes a luxury Byredo skincare collection found only on the airline, as well as Bulgari amenity kits and a faux sheep-skin blanket.

And there’s a full-length cupboard perfect for hanging your clothes in.

The suites offer all the perks and amenities that Emirates is renowned for in its most luxurious cabins, including a personal mini bar with drinks and snacks and wireless controls to adjust your seat.

Ad for the in-flight entertainment, Emirates’ ‘ice’, passengers will have a choice of over 2,500 channels on demand, which they can watch on a 32-inch full HD LCD TV screen.

(Or, you can even project content you’ve downloaded on your own devices, to keep binge watching that show you’ve been obsessing over).

And to avoid that pesky background airplane noise, there’s even a pair of Bowers & Wilkins Active Noise Cancelling E1 headphones, created exclusively for Emirates of course.

Prefer to stare out of the window? Each suite has a pair of Steiner Safari Binoculars available if you want to do a bit of scenery watching. Yep, you read that right – you get your very own binoculars.

Meanwhile, for those hoping to get some work done, there’s a pull out desk, not to mention a complimentary leather notebook and pen with which to jot down your thoughts.

Even the lights are swish; each suite has chandelier-style lights, and 10 ambient mood lighting settings with SEVEN different colour schemes you can control.

And for something really cool, the suites will feature the industry’s first virtual windows in the middle aisle, with the view from outside the aircraft projected thanks to real time technology.

Very cool.

The menu is equally brilliant. Expect a la carte multi-course meals from top international chefs, served on fine Royal Doulton china and exclusive Robert Welch cutlery.

Meanwhile, the other cabins may not have their own suites, but they do offer serious wow factor.

For example, Business Class will feature 42 seats that can be converted into a fully flat bed, there’s a show stowage area and even privacy panels between seats.

Then there are extra touches of comfort from the adjustable headrest to the electronically operated footrest, plenty of lighting options and touchscreen controls for the seat and inflight entertainment system.

Oh, and passengers also get a personal mini bar, of course.

U.S to withdraw citizenship from Hoda Muthana



Share With Friends:

A federal judge has ruled that a U.S.-born woman who traveled to Syria and joined ISIS is not an American citizen, even though the State Department had issued her a passport when she was a child and later renewed it.

Hoda Muthana, 25, was a student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham when she traveled to Syria. She is currently being held at a detention camp in northern Syria with her young son.

In February, the State Department declared that Muthana “is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States.” The statement from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that “she does not have any legal basis, no valid U.S. passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States.”

The next day, her father, Ahmed Ali Muthana, filed a federal lawsuit.

Hoda Muthana’s citizenship was in dispute because her father was living in the U.S. and working as a diplomat for his home country, Yemen, prior to her birth. For families of diplomats, citizenship isn’t automatically conferred on babies born in the U.S. because of diplomatic immunity.

The central question in this case was when Ahmed Ali Muthana’s diplomatic immunity ended.

Yemen’s government dismissed him as a diplomat in June 1994, several months before his daughter was born. “We all agree that his duties had ended and he was no longer a diplomat” when Muthana was born, said Christina Jump, a lawyer from the Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America who is representing the family. “The Department of State is now trying to continue that immunity beyond that timeframe.”

State Department officials say the U.S. Mission to the United Nations was officially notified that Ahmed Ali Muthana was terminated in February 1995, several months after his daughter’s birth. They say the date when the U.S. received notice about Muthana is what matters in determining diplomatic immunity, rather than when his duties ended.

They say that’s the reason why, in 2016, they declared his daughter’s passport was issued in error and revoked it.

The judge sided with the Trump administration in a ruling from the bench on Thursday, according to Jump.

U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton told the court in Washington, D.C., that “he is bound by the statement of the Department of State as to when it received notice of Mr. Muthana’s termination of his position as a diplomat. … And that he did not have the flexibility to rule contrary to it,” Jump told NPR.

Walton has not yet issued a written ruling. Jump said that they are waiting to read it but that they will likely appeal.

The family says in court documents that it was never told by the State Department that there was any doubt about Hoda Muthana’s citizenship. If she had been denied a U.S. passport when she was young, the family would have logically gone through the steps of applying for U.S. citizenship on her behalf, their lawyer stated.

The judge told the court Thursday that his office had received about 6,000 messages from people about this case, Jump said. “A few of them in favor of Hoda and many of them threatening, which he has needed to refer to the Marshal’s office.”

Ahmed Ali Muthana asked the court whether he was legally able to send his daughter money or other forms of support such as jackets while she is detained in Syria. According to Jump, the judge refused to answer that question.

“He just simply said it would be inappropriate, in his mind, for him to issue a determination one way or another on the legality of that, since Mr. Muthana had not tried yet and sought permission before doing so,” Jump

Hoda Muthana was initially detained by Kurdish forces in a camp called al-Hol and was later moved to al-Roj camp, “in large part because she has clearly and repeatedly denounced ISIS,” according to Jump. She received threats, “and we believe that she continues to be in danger now.”

“I hope they excuse me because of how young and ignorant I was, really. And I can tell them that now I’ve changed,” Muthana told ABC News earlier this year. “And now I’m a mother. And now I have none of the ideology. And hopefully everyone will see it when I get back.

Muthana married an Australian ISIS fighter shortly after she arrived in Syria, according to court documents After that man died, she married a Tunisian man and they had a son. Her second husband also died. In 2018, as ISIS was rapidly losing territory, Muthana fled and was captured by the Kurdish forces.

Jump says Muthana has difficulty finding ways to communicate with her father. “It’s when she can borrow someone else’s phone. It’s not predictable, and it’s certainly not anything that can be scheduled,” Jump says. “It’s definitely not anything that can be done with any confidentiality attached.”

Jump says Muthana has never had any other citizenship. She has never been to Yemen, and it might not be possible for her to obtain Yemeni citizenship.

What will happen to Muthana and her child isn’t clear. Nathan Sales, the State Department’s acting under secretary for Civilian Security, Democracy, and Human Rights, said the department is still reviewing the ruling.

“Give us some time. We just got the opinion. We’ll have a considered reaction to it once we have a chance to digest,” he told reporters at a press briefing Thursday.

It’s worth noting that a group of eight U.S. citizens was repatriated back to the U.S. from Syria in June. They are thought to be the wives and children of ISIS fighters. Separately, a woman named Samantha Sally says she was dragged to Syria by her husband and has now returned to the U.S.
