Typical of the inexperienced 380 crews to let something like that get out of hand. I lost count of the number of safety and procedural violations in that video. Too many people in the bar area, unauthorised decorations being fitted to the roof, etc...

It's all fun until someone gets hurt.

That's awesome!

Assuming, of course, that safety precautions were in place. If turbulence was highly unlikely, I don't see an issue. The number of people in there did seem rather high, but it's hard to say from a video.

I'm certain Emirates has missed out an excellent marketing opportunity here.

It would of been really easy to have a live video link of this party broadcasted to all the passengers in Economy class. I'm sure Emirates would see a rise in people buying business class seats ... or the Economy class passengers gatecrashing the party

I have always wished / hoped for some eye candy to sit next to me. Would make the flight a bit more interesting. It NEVER happens.
If I do have anyone sit next to me of the opposite sex (hardly is the case in J or F), its always someone EXTREMELY boring or nothing to write home about.

LOL. I was always hoping the same until I got married. On my recent TG BKK-KUL flight in C that I was flying without the wife, I got to my seat and there was this HOT girl seating next to me. Oh if I was still single :P

Has anyone thought that this video might be fake? I mean staged? It could be a clever viral marketing campaign for Emirates. . . I would suspect so.

I doubt it. It was posted 5 days ago and only had 155,000 views. Which still isnt bad. I'm not sure if it fits with the "Hello Tomorrow" theme. More like, "Hello Today, your place or mine. And how much money do you earn?"

While I'm surprised that it was allowed by the crew to begin with, good job by (seemingly) the purser at the end to bring it under control. Then again, if I was on this jet, I'd want it to be absolutely out of control.
