Emirates’ design team is clearly not familiar with the idea that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” In late 2017, Emirates took delivery of brand new 777-300ER planes featuring a completely redesigned first class cabin.
These planes only feature six suites in the first class cabin, spread across two rows in a 1-1-1 layout. While Emirates’ old suites were incredibly private, these new ones feature floor-to-ceiling walls for the ultimate in privacy.
Emirates worked with Mercedes-Benz to design a cabin that feels like a high-performance sports car and includes all the luxury touches you’d expect.
And, for the first time in history, you might face some stiff competition for a middle seat. Emirates installed virtual windows on these planes that use exterior cameras to give passengers in the middle seats a high resolution view of the scenery.
You can also control the lighting color and temperature in your suite to fully customize the experience.
And if you’d like to order food without having to talk to another person, you can call the flight attendants via video directly from the tablet at your seat
The biggest drawback is that Emirates has been very slow with rolling out this product to the rest of the 777 fleet. Currently you’ll only find this industry-leading seat on select flights between Dubai (DXB) and the following airports:
* Brussels (BRU)
* Geneva (GVA)
* London-Stansted (STN)
* Vienna (VIE)
* Frankfurt (FRA)
* Tokyo-Haneda (HND)
* Hamburg (HAM)
Just be sure to double-check the aircraft operating the flight to make sure you’ll have the new configuration; you’re looking for six first class seats on the seat map.
