Mile-High Shower Club



The Dubai-based airline (Emirates) will become the first commercial airline in the world to offer showers at 37,000ft when it installs the facility in first-class cabins on its new Airbus A380s.

Well it is going to cost you about USD 18,000 (First Class passengers - Dubai to New York from October 1st)  and apparently leaves a heavy carbon footprint. Basically the amount of water (an extra tonne) it will have to carry would be equivalent of carrying 12 extra passengers.

Is it that bad? Well apparently it is or I guess the environmentalists just like to make noise about everything. I mean, come on - 12 extra passengers, how bad could that be? Honestly speaking, I don't know and I don't care enough to find out either.
