Back in 2015 Emirates announced they would be introducing a new first class suite and the wait is finally over. With 40 square feet of space, floor to ceiling sliding doors and a sleek design inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class – think supple leather seating, high-tech control panels and mood lighting -, Emirates’ new Boeing 777 takes luxury to the next level.
Fully enclosed First Class suite
“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,” says Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airlines. “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.”

And did we mention Jeremy Clarkson is the face of the new campaign?
And it’s not just first class that’s had a luxe upgrade. Business and Economy Class cabins have both had a multi-million Dirham renovations with newly-designed seats and upgraded inflight entertainment systems in all cabins.
The Business Class cabin
“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.”
The latest Emirates 777 aircraft with these new features will enter commercial service on 1 December, making its debut on flights to Geneva and Brussels.
