The 'Game Changing' new 777 interiors for Emirates

One of the leading airlines on the global aviation scene has unveiled its completely refreshed interiors for its Boeing 777 aircraft which include the highly anticipated First Class private suites. 

Emirates has spent a long time and a vast amount of money to create an on-board environment that the airline believes is a 'game changer'.  The Dubai based airline has employed a floor to ceiling sliding doors and sleek design features inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class for its new First Class suites that, we're told, take luxury and privacy to the next level. Each of these new suites enjoy up to 40 square feet of personal space and are fully-enclosed and exude class and sophistication. 

It isn't just the first class cabin and product that has benefits from Emirates multi-million revamp, the whole of the internal fixtures on the latest Emirates 777's has had a face-lift and renovation. Business and Economy Class cabins, all along the walkways, in the washrooms and galleys have all seen a dramatic change, even the in-flight entertainment systems in all cabins has been revamped and enhanced. 

The President of Emirates Airlines, Sir Tim Clark, was positively glowing about the new interiors at the launch and its clear to see why, they are absolutely amazing and further evidence that Emirates leads the way in on-board passenger comfort.

 “The in-flight 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 in-flight 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.” Sir Tim Clark said in Dubai upon the unveiling of the new refreshed cabins.

Emirates’ latest First Class product gives a nod to the design philosophy of the Mercedes-Benz S- Class, bringing together two global brands renowned for innovation, luxury, and comfort. The collaboration inspired several design details in the private suite including the soft leather seating, high-tech control panels, and mood lighting. 

“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.” Sir Tim said. 

Changing the game in First Class – key product features

The new Emirates 777 First Class cabin interior uses a whole new colour palette of soft greys, cream and champagne, conveying a contemporary, open and airy feel, with quiet and timeless luxury. The delicate and subtle lighting also enhance the whole environment that is a delight for all the senses.

The cabin has been created in close collaboration with Boeing, Rockwell Collins interior systems, Panasonic, Jacques Pierre Jean Design studio and Seattle-based design firm Teague. Each of the fully enclosed private suites have a floor to ceiling sliding door and the most comfortable seat in the air and combines smart technologies and intelligent design to deliver function, as well as luxury and comfort.  

To ensure all First Class customers have a view, Emirates is introducing the industry’s first virtual windows for suites located in the middle aisle. The configuration of the First Class cabin on the 777 is 1-1-1. The virtual windows in the middle suite, projects the view from outside the aircraft using real time camera technology. In the other suites at the sides, Emirates even provides binoculars so passengers can take a closer look the geography they are flying high above.  are available for customers who want to explore the sky outside their windows. 

Passengers can easily communicate with the cabin crew, or request for room service using the video call function. The suites also come with a service window where customers can be served drinks and canapes undisturbed, of the sheer luxury on offer here is beyond words. Recently we commented that the new Singapore Airlines A380 first class was more akin to a luxury liner sailing the ocean waves. Well, this new first class cabin from Emirates tops that cabin and then some, it is, without doubt the best in the sky and sets a standard that few airlines could follow or even come close to.  

The popular carrier has retained and updated some of the most popular features of its private suites such as: the personal mini bar for drinks and snacks within each suite; and wireless controls to adjust seating positions, as well as to navigate Emirates’ award-winning in-flight entertainment system, ice.  Customers can view over 2,500 channels of on-demand entertainment on a 32-inch Full HD LCD TV screen, or project content from their own devices. The viewing experience is now enhanced with brand new Bowers & Wilkins Active Noise Cancelling E1 headphones created exclusively for Emirates. 

And that's not all, each of these super sophisticated sexy suites are also fitted out with with an inspiration kit which features a luxury Byredo skincare collection, Bulgari amenity kits and Hydra Active moisturising pyjamas!

The soft leather seat reclines into a fully flat bed and can be placed in a “zero-gravity” position. Apparently this was inspired by NASA space technology, giving a feeling of relaxation and weightlessness. 

The business class.............

The design and shape of Emirates’ Business Class seat on-board the new 777 was also 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. It also has touchscreen controls for the seat and in-flight entertainment system, several personal lighting options, privacy panels between seats, a shoe stowage area, footrest, and a personal mini-bar. 

Economy Class

Emirates Economy Class cabin now features a colour palette of soft greys and blues and looks rather appealing and relaxing. It features ergonomically designed seats that come with full leather headrests that have flexible side panels and can also be adjusted vertically for optimum support. Just like the other two cabins, it comes equipped with the generation of Emirates’ award-winning ice in-flight entertainment system offering improved and superior image quality. Each in-seat screen will feature ultra-wide viewing angles, a  touch screen, LED backlight and full HD display. 

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.
