Most interesting observation from my Emirates flight…

Most interesting observation from my Emirates flight…

28

I think we’ve had an eventful enough day here on the blog, though I’ll leave you guys with one last thing I noticed at the very tail end of my flight (or rather it was pointed out to me by a crew member). This sign appeared above the shower spa suite:

Hmmm…

    Don't forget that some disabled passengers may need their traveling companion in the shower with them to assist.

    @ snic

    Couples aren't allowed.

    The Emir has his own private jet, so I doubt that would ever be an issue ;)

    OK, it makes sense that the occupancy limit is designed to permit an adult to help a child take a shower.

    So, what would happen if an adult couple decided to go into the shower room together? Would the FAs intervene?

    And if so, would an exception be made for the Emir and his wife or girlfriend?

    We really need to get to the bottom of this!

    @Ted F - The restricting factors for certification are the number of oxygen masks available in case of depressurisation and the number of seatbelts or other restraining devices available in case of turbulence. Hence, adult or child really makes no difference.

    @ Krazny -- Actually an innocent(ish) explanation. Somehow jokingly got in a conversation with a crew member about how even though the suites are fully enclosed, they're low enough so that the crew can see over them. I asked if they ever caught anyone doing something, and the crew member said all the time. Said crew member then said "for what it's worth, the shower even has a posted occupancy of two people, so take that as you may."

  6. Ted F Guest

    @Sean M. It should read "Max. 1.5 occupants in shower" then. :)

    Well said, wwk5d.

    Somewhere, on a SQ flight in first class, Janeses is feeling very jealous, but she doesn't know why.

    Something to add to the bucket list?

  10. Sean M. Diamond

    Actually, the reason for this is to permit children (who are not permitted to use the shower alone) to be accompanied by an adult. All enclosed compartments on board an aircraft must be placarded for maximum occupancy. You will see similar "maximum occupancy" placards on the crew rest compartment on the main deck and in the bar/lounge at the rear of the upper deck.

    Well, I'll be damned...

  12. Ted F Guest

    Wait...people you're missing the point. The key here is that it was "pointed out to me by a crew member". Hahahahahaha. Pics or it didn't happen!!!

  13. Craig Guest

    Hope you and Alex tried the shower out together.

  14. Wendy Guest

    Thanks for the laugh! Wonder how many flyers have "joined the mile high club in that shower"? Extremely funny considering how conservative the MidEast countries are.

  15. Krazny Guest

    I'd be curious to hear exactly how/why this was pointed out to you by a crew member (you were headed in the door with your entourage and were scolded? Was it pointed out with a wink and a smile?)...

    "The shower" also known as "the Mile High Club Lounge."

  16. Kris Ziel Guest

    like @coalharbour, the first thought that came to my mind was if it was 10 minutes instead of five.

  17. PL Guest

    "or rather it was pointed out to me by a crew member"

    Was that an offer from the crew? :)

  18. TravisZ Guest

    shouldn't it be 5 max?

    me + 4, is my math off?

  19. pete Guest

    oh man... it will be a problem for me when I'm travelling with my little twins.

  20. coalharbour Guest

    does 2 occupants = 10 minutes of water?

  21. FortFun Guest

    'tail end' indeed... ;)

  22. k2o Guest

    And your nickname is Lucky right? :-)

  23. Sagar Guest

    Really ?? That has to be on funniest things I have ever seen on a aircraft !!

  24. Paul Guest

    I hope you wore flip flops.

  25. coalharbour Guest

    and did you test the occupancy limit ;-)
