First Class private suites the jewel in the crown of Emirates’ new Boeing 777s

Emirates’ new Boeing 777 First Class product offers up to 40 square feet of personal space and complete privacy, thanks to floor to ceiling sliding doors. 

Emirates has unveiled completely refreshed interiors for its Boeing 777 aircraft, including a brand new First Class private suite. 

The suites feature floor to ceiling sliding doors and design features inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Each suite offers up to 40 square feet of personal space and they are laid out in a 1-1-1 configuration. They have also been designed in collaboration with Boeing, Rockwell Collins interior systems, Panasonic, Jacques Pierre Jean Design studio, and Seattle-based design firm Teague

The 777 upgrade also extends to the Business Class and Economy Class cabins, including newly-designed seats and upgraded inflight entertainment systems.

The First Class seat includes a “zero-gravity” position, which has been designed to offer passengers a feeling of weightlessness. 

Commenting on the new First Class product, Sir Tim Clarke, Emirates’ President, said: “We are very excited about our new fully-enclosed suite which is a real game-changer in terms of privacy, comfort, and thoughtful luxury. This is the first time an Emirates product has been so influenced by another luxury brand, but it is a natural fit as both Emirates and Mercedes-Benz have the same unwavering commitment to fine detail, uncompromising quality, and a drive to push the boundaries.”

The collaboration between Emirates and Mercedes-Benz inspired several design details in the private suite including the soft leather seating, high-tech control panels and mood lighting. 

Other impressive features include virtual windows, which project the view from outside the aircraft using real time camera technology; fully flat beds with a “zero-gravity” position inspired by NASA technology and offering passengers a feeling of weightlessness; a video call function to communicate with crew; a service window through which drinks and canapés can be served; and an updated personal mini bar.

Business Class

Emirates says the the new 777 Business Class seat was inspired by the interior of a modern sports car, with a diamond stitch pattern on the full leather cover, ergonomically designed headrest, and a sleek overall look and feel. The seat has a pitch of 72 inches and moves into a fully-flat sleeping position, and privacy panels are available between seats.

Economy Class

The new Economy Class cabin features a colour palette of soft greys and blues. The ergonomically designed seats come with full leather headrests that have flexible side panels and can also be adjusted vertically for optimum support. 

Emirates’ first two Boeing 777-300ER aircraft fitted with its new First Class product will operate from Dubai to the airline’s Belgian and Swiss destinations starting from 1 December 2017.
