Schlappig on his... Most impressive airplane extravagance: "It's tough to beat the Emirates A380's on-board shower -- nothing makes me giggle like taking a shower on a plane," said the 25-year-old American.
"It's pretty surreal to be at 35,000 feet, traveling 500 miles an hour, and taking a shower. The number of toiletries is enough to start its own store. And the floors are heated. It's insane," he said of this Instagram picture.
