Emirates First Class plan

Details of a new First Class product and a range of other new features in the Business and Economy Class cabins to be showcased at the Dubai Air Show in November were revealed last week by Emirates.

The new First Class cabin will make its debut on a Boeing B777-300ER and will feature six private suites in a 1+1+1 layout, compared to the existing eight private suites in a 1+2+1 layout on the existing B777 fleet.

Airline president Sir Tim Clark said: “Our products and services are continually improved and enhanced, but what our customers will see on Emirates’ new 777s starting from November will be a much bigger revamp.

“It will take our onboard experience to the next level. All cabins will sport a totally fresh new look, the results of years of planning and development invested into our new First Class offering and our overall Emirates 777 experience.” 

Emirates said it would announce the destinations where the new B777-300ER is to be deployed in due course, along with more details of the overall refurbishment. 

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