Viral video: YouTube star Casey Neistat takes us inside Emirates' super swanky first class suites
First, a warning: this video may be all you think about the next time you find yourself squished into an uncomfortable seat with no legroom on a budget airlines. Now that's out of the way, let's proceed. A video of American vlogger Casey Neistat living his best life while seated in a super-luxe, private first class suite on board an Emirates flight is making the Internet green with envy. And once you watch his comprehensive review of the suite that features a fully-reclinable seat, a 32-inch HD TV and enough legroom to "fit a small family," you'll see why.
Emirates calls their fully-enclosed suites a "game changer" and one viewing of Casey's video shows why. The opulent suite features floor-to-ceiling sliding doors to give passengers a sense of privacy.
"(The suite) feels more like a small but extremely elegant hotel room than it does an airplane seat," says Casey.
Now, some of the more fancy offerings.
The seat converts into a fully flat bed with a mattress, cozy blanket and fluffy pillow. There's a mini-bar filled with snacks and drinks, lighting and temperature control (heaven for those of us always freezing while flying), even a vanity mirror and toiletries from a luxury brand (to help you look your best when you step off that plane).
In one of the more ridiculous moments in the video, Casey actually flies a mini-drone inside his suite.

No wonder then that the video has been watched over 2.7 million times since it was uploaded on December 11 and is currently trending on YouTube.
"This is literally the only way 97% of us viewers will ever get to see the inside of a first class emirates suite," comments one person on the video. "meanwhile in coach the person in front of you has their seat reclined all the way and 6 babies are crying," jokes another.
