The Azadi Hotel in Hamadan trying to save the environment , by requesting that customers leave a note on the bed if the bed should be washed, using less detergent helps the environment, lol

No cabin  was worst, they were all 10000% GREAT and AWSOME, every single F cabin I listed  was a unique experience, where is your next EK F going to be? mines will probably be USA>DXB>Asia has to be all A380 Showers :) though  SQ R was super fine SIN>NRT>LAX. I also spent lots of time in F lounges, in fact I overnighted and slept in EY AUH F lounge and SQ SIN F lounge I plan to set up camp in EK DXB F Lounge ;D.

I think my future F Flights besides EK F will be TG F BKK>SYD then ill try SYD/MEL>LAX A380 F, that should be a bit tricky to get with AA miles.

Yup, just make a new thread for a new country.

And post more details about the places.

Otherwise, very cool.
Can't believe your wife was OK with you going to Iran.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

No,  I had a very good experience with Iranian security.
