Andy McGinlay, who teaches English in Thailand, is the company’s “best customer” and has been rewarded with regular upgrades to first class, the Daily Express newspaper reports.

He said: “My mum calls me a walking billboard for Emirates and my friends think I’m nuts – they just don’t get my obsession.

“Every time I’ve flown since I got the tattoo, the cabin crew are amazed – they always want to take photos with me in the galley showing off the tattoo.”

His friends are less enamoured by their pal’s lifestyle.

He added: “Last week I posted a picture on Facebook of my first-class boarding pass with a glass of Moet – and my friend commented ‘I hope you choke’.

“That sums it up really.”
