Emirates Airlines recently upgraded Casey Neistat to first class. He filmed the experience, and it's a nine-minute testament to obscene flying decadence.

There's a drinks bar that magically slides out of the windowsill at the push of a button. There's a cooked-to-order menu that includes 21-year-old scotch and caviar.
