    For a single return ticket price of Dh44,175, a frequent flier rests in the sanctuary of his first-class private suite aboard an Emirates A380 superjumbo cruising from Dubai to Toronto at 36,000 feet.
    Feeling invigorated by a hot shower moments earlier, he studies a first-class dinner menu touting main courses such as braised beef in coconut milk or duck breast glazed with wild forest honey.
    One of 1,200 TV channels is broadcasting on a 23-inch screen in the cabin while the seat beneath him massages away the stress of long-haul travel.
    After dinner, the seat will be converted by flight attendants into a full bed behind the closed door of the cabin.
