Showers For Emirates First Class Passengers

We all know that First Class is where the money is for the airlines. So I can understand why airlines keep coming up with new and creative ways to keep their First Class passengers happy.

But showers? With fuel prices as high as they are, to provide showers means carrying a load of fresh water. 2200 pounds worth actually.

Oh...and those sitting in coach and looking in their seatback pockets for something to read? Forget it. Emirates is removing all reading material from coach seatback pockets. And the weight savings? 2100 pounds.

Coincidence? I don't think so!
