Emirates unveils new Boeing 777 design

Emirates new First class suite

Emirates revealed the updated design for its Boeing 777 fleet this weekend at the Dubai Airshow.

The refreshed interiors include a new First class private suite (main picture) with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors. It features 40 square feet of personal space for each suite, a leather seat that reclines into a fully flat bed, storage space and a video call service that allows passengers to speak to cabin crew during the flight, as well as a personal mini bar and a 32-inch HD TV with in-flight entertainment. Suites in the middle row can view a real-time video feed of the exterior of the plane to see the sky as if they had windows.

Emirates says the design is inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and has teamed up with Mercedes to bring a fleet of the cars to its chauffeur service, which is complimentary for First class passengers.

In Business class (pictured below), Emirates has introduced new seats with ergonomically designed headrests, a pitch of 72 inches and the ability to recline into a fully flat bed. Each seat has privacy panels and a touch-screen TV for in-flight entertainment.

Lastly, Economy seats (pictured below) now feature leather adjustable headrests and HD screens with multiple viewing angles for in-flight entertainment.
