Watch: YouTube star Casey Neistat tests the new Emirates first class suite
“This feels more like a small but extremely elegant hotel room…”
Last year, YouTube star Casey Neistat gave viewers an envy-inducing peek inside an Emirates A380 first class cabin, complete with its onboard shower spa.
That video has been viewed almost 48 million times – so it makes sense that he would jump at the chance to test out the brand new first class suite onboard the Boeing 777, on a recent flight from Brussels to Dubai.
In the video, Neistat – clad in a Christmas-themed sweatsuit – offers his “comprehensive review” of the suite, which boasts a whopping 40 square-feet of personal space.
His expert assessment? “This feels more like a small but extremely elegant hotel room than it does an airplane seat.”
Neistat goes on to reveal the suite’s full-size closet, two TVs, bottomless snacks and extensive legroom (“if you were a circus clown wearing stilts, you couldn’t use up all this legroom”).
At one point, he calls “room service”, just to see what happens. He even attempts to fly his drone inside the cabin, to demonstrate how spacious it is.
The video has already racked up 650,000 views since it was posted on Monday.
