Emirates has finally unveiled the newly constructed interiors for its Boeing 777 aircraft, which includes the much awaited new First Class private suites. The cabins in the First Class suites are game-changing and fully enclosed private suites inspired by a famous car.
Starting with floor to ceiling sliding doors and sleek designs inspired by Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the new suites of Emirates takes luxury and privacy to the next level. These suites spacious and fully-enclosed private suites that have up to 40 square feet of personal space and are laid out in a 1-1-1 configuration.
The latest Emirates 777 aircraft spells nothing but a multi-dollar upgrade. From the First Class suites to the Business and Economy Class cabins, the walkways, the washrooms, and the galleys, everything is about luxury and comfort. The upgrade also includes newly-designed seats and new in-flight entertainment systems in all cabins.
Emirates Airline’s President Sir Time Clark said:
“The inflight experience is the heart of our brand and service proposition. The new 777 interiors that we are unveiling today is part of Emirates’ ongoing investment to continually raise the bar and exceed our customers’ expectations. Aside from our new fully enclosed private suites, Business Class features our latest fully-flat leather seats with personal minibars, Economy Class seats have adjustable full leather headrests, and the inflight entertainment system has been upgraded for all cabin classes. Throughout the aircraft, our customers will see modern and airy cabins, with painstaking attention to detail evident in design touches such as the textured wall and ceiling panels, lighting features, and more.”
About the new First Class products, he also added:
“Emirates pioneered the First Class private suite concept back in 2003, and today it’s the industry benchmark when it comes to first class travel. Over the years we have continually improved on our private suites, adding thoughtful refinements and features. 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 New First Class Cabins
The suites were created in collaboration with Boeing, Panasonic, Jacques Pierre Jean Design studio, Rockwell Collins interior systems, and Teague and combine smart technologies and intelligent designs to deliver luxury, comfort, and function. The new Emirates 777 First Class cabin’s interior uses a new color palette: A combination of soft greys, champagne, and cream that conveys an open, airy, and contemporary feel with the combination of peace, quiet, and timeless luxury.
The soft leather seat reclines and transforms into a fully flat bed. It can also be placed in a “zero-gravity” position which is inspired by NASA technology, to give the feeling of weightlessness and relaxation. Even if the bed has been made, it still gives ample space for passengers.
Emirates still retained but updated the most popular features of the private suites: The personal mini bar for drinks and snack in each suite, the wireless controls to adjust the seating positions and window blinds, and the award-winning in-flight entertainment system. Each suite also has an inspiration kit with the luxury Byredo skincare collections, Hydra Active moisturizing pajamas, and the Bulgari amenity kits.
Passengers can have the option to either watch from the 2,500 channels in the 32-inch full HD LCD TV screen or project directly from their devices. The viewing experience is now made even better by the brand new Bowers & Wilkins Active Noise Canceling E1 headphones which are created exclusively for Emirates.
There is also ample storage in the suites which are cleverly designed in the overhead compartment plus a full-length cupboard for hanging clothes.
And the First Class experience will not be complete with the on-demand service which features a selection of the finest cuisines prepared by gourmet chefs and best paired with the airline’s exclusive wines, spirits, and champagnes.
Upgrades in All Other Cabins
The entire Emirates 777 aircraft was given a more refreshing interior with a light and modern color scheme, new lighting and design accents, and classy textured panels.
United Arab Emirates’ national plant, the Ghaf (Prosopis cineraria) tree is used to highlight the whole aircraft. It shows a deep cultural and ecological significance to the airline.
The shape and the design of the Business Class seats were also inspired by the modern sports car and showed a diamond stitch pattern on the full leather cover and an ergonomically designed headrest to show a sleek overall look and feel.
Each seat has a pitch of 72 inches and can move into a fully flat sleeping position. It also has touchscreen controls for the in-flight entertainment system, seat control, personal lighting options, privacy panels, footrest, shoe storage area, and a personal mini-bar.
The Economy Class cabin also has an exciting new look. The cabin features a color palette of soft blues and greys. The ergonomically designed seats come with a full leather headrest with flexible and adjustable side panels for optimum support and comfort.
The Business and Economy Class cabins are all equipped with the new generation of Emirates’ award-winning entertainment system, ice. Each in-seat screen features a capacitive touchscreen, ultra-wide viewing angles, full HD display, and LED backlight.
The Boeing 777 aircraft operates in over 140 cities on six continents from its hub in Dubai.
