I've often wondered what the 2nd door is on the Emirates A380 shower suites. It is a flush doorway on the forward wall of each suite (opposite to the actual shower). I have previously tried to give it a wiggle to see what was behind there, but was reluctant to force it too hard and didn't have any tools with to lever it.. Any ideas what is behind there? Emergency exit out of the flight crew rest pods, or maybe an avionics bay or bathroom supplies?

I believe that's where they keep the cleaning supplies to avoid carting them through the cabin (or up and down the stairs) after each guest has used the shower. The shower rooms have a special 'cleaning mode' which can be activated via the cabin crew's control system, which could automatically unlock the door for crew to access.

Why on earth would you want a tool to lever it? Your curiosity is hardly an excuse to go doing this.
