What it’s like flying first class on Emirates internationally


A 22-year-old high school drop out turned business woman has shared what it’s like flying first class from Sydney to Paris with Emirates.  

Paris Marchant shared a video on TikTok documenting the international trip with her husband Lawrence Lees. 

Unlike a business class ticket, first class offers nearly anything you may need – from five-star service to food on-demand and even a shower. 

But the lush travel option with Emirates comes at a cost of an eye-watering $20,000.

In the video Paris highly recommended traveling first class if you can afford it, as she boasted about enjoying the comfort, food, and products supplied.  

For the first leg flight from Sydney to Dubai the couple were treated to a cabin each that was equipped with a huge television, mini bar, snacks, and doors on either side for privacy. 

‘These were both of our first class suites – as you can see there’s ample room, they’re super luxurious and really comfortable,’ Paris said. 

The huge cabin chairs transform into beds for added comfort, and tiny lights are embedded into the ceiling to make it appear like the night sky. 

They were also given personal care items such as toothbrush, tooth paste, deodorant, towelettes, moisturisers and hand wipes. 

Perhaps the most impressive inclusion on board the flight was the in-build shower and bathroom

Sounding impressed and excited, Paris said: ‘This is epic; this is a shower in the sky, which you only get on Emirates first class. Absolutely amazing.’ 

‘The menu was completely on-demand, so whenever you wanted any food you just press a buzzer and they (the staff) would come.’ 

Paris chose between caviar, porcini mushroom soup, traditional Arabic mezze, tea-smoked duck, grilled courgettes or a seasonal salad. There was also an extensive wine selection.

‘The food was actually SO good and fresh,’ Paris said. 

At the stop-over in Dubai the pair ordered sushi and received a complimentary massage in the Emirates lounge before continuing the second leg of the flight and arriving in Paris.

‘$20,000!!! My car cost that,’ one person wrote with a laughing emoji. 

‘At least I get to see this without wasting $20K. Sweet,’ another wrote. 

A third said: ‘Strongly recommend not watching this 10 hours before a 16-hour economy flight from Los Angeles to Sydney.’

‘You obviously have worked very hard to be able to afford it, well done,’ another said.
