would there be a discount for Golds/ platinums ???I'm in London on Holiday (awful weather though) and I'm planning to check out the Emirates Air Line on Sunday/Monday.

Wish there was some use of status on EK. Currently there is none.

Woohoo! Virtual first class shower. I looked at First class ticket from YYZ-DXB, just for fun, it was a down payment for a small bungalow. This will be a lot cheaper.

I wonder if they are real pilots who help you in the sim?

Will go there in September on my next trip to London. I was quite impressed with the Emirates air line in london as it seemed good value for money as I already had a travel card

Will check this one out as well .
