The interactive, water-resistant amenity kit comes in six different colours and designs. Not only are they stylish, they also consist of travel essentials to help you arrive feeling fresh. On top of that, the kits use augmented reality (AR) technology and allow you to unlock entertainment on your mobile devices!

9. At night, the airplane's ceiling will light up so you can sleep under the stars

The plane has really cool interior mood lighting, which can simulate dawn, dusk, and twilight, depending on what time you're travelling. When the sun is going down, the lighting changes from white to orange, then to a soft red, then to a starry night sky.

10. While most airlines only offer 20kg or less, Emirates allows 30kg for each Economy traveller

All that extra weight totally comes in handy when you're shopping for gifts, souvenirs, and everything else during your holiday!
