Our Travel Experts' recommendations
Though both airlines offer excellent First Class travel, we recommend opting for Emirates to experience their luxury shower spa in the air. Available onboard their A380 aircraft, the contemporary shower system allows you to wash and rejuvenate mid-flight with the signature Timeless Spa shower kits. Other highlights of the airline include world-class dining, exclusive entertainment, lounge access and a private suite equipped with a sliding door, wardrobe and fully flat bed.
Airport lounge access
The O.R. Tambo International Airport Johannesburg is home to several airline lounges. First Class passengers can enjoy access to British Airways' luxurious Galleries First lounge, boasting the chandelier-lit Gold Bar, where guests can indulge in a range of unique wines and spirits. The airport’s other First Class Lounge is the Emirates Lounge, found on the Mezzanine Level between Gates A4 and A7. Here, you can relax on leather armchairs, freshen up in the showers and choose from a mouth-watering selection of complimentary food.
