Passengers in Emirates first class cabins have had the luxury of a “shower attendant” during their flights. But the perk has just been scrapped.
Dedicated shower attendants, who were not formally cabin crew and did not have the same training, had been a perk for first class passenger using the shower suites on Emirates A380 flights.
But UK Border Control has told the Dubai-based airline to remove these staffers from flights to British cities as it had a “restriction with entry of non-licensed crew”, One Mile at a Time reported.
This means Emirates Shower Spas will not be serviced by dedicated shower attendants on Emirates A380 flights to London, Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester.
Emirates used to have two shower attendants on ultra-long-haul flights but this has since reduced to one, according to the site.
They — along with the shower spas they service — have long been a perk for first class passengers on Emirates’ A380 aircraft.
