Emirates revamps first class cabin


DUBAI, UAE, 31 May 2017: Emirates confirmed details, Tuesday, of its new first class product that will be showcased at the Dubai Air Show in November.

Making its debut onboard a Boeing 777-300ER, Emirates’ new first class cabin will feature six private suites laid out in a 1-1-1 layout, compared to the existing eight private suites in a 1-2-1 layout on its existing 777 fleet.

In addition to the redesigned first class product, Emirates’ new Boeing 777-300ER will also offer other new features in the business and economy class cabins.

Emirates will announce the destinations where the new Boeing 777-300ER is to be deployed ahead of the launch.

Emirates Airline president, Tim Clark, said: “Our products and services across cabin classes are continually being improved. But what our customers will see on Emirates’ new 777s starting from November, will be a much bigger revamp that takes our onboard experience to the next level. All cabins will sport a totally fresh new look.”

Emirates is the world’s largest operator of the Boeing 777, flying 162 of the efficient wide-body aircraft to six continents from its hub in Dubai.

The airline pioneered the private suite concept on commercial flights in 2003, establishing a new standard for first class travel. It was the first to offer shower spas and the onboard lounge onboard its A380.
