Singapore Airlines new first class luxury suites were impressive, but Emirates new First Class Suites are a game-changer.
Inspired by Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the first class cabin has been completely upgraded to private suites that are as luxurious as they come. With up to 40 square feet of space, the Emirates first class suites are the new hotel rooms above the clouds.
The updated cabin is available on their newest Boeing 777 aircraft, which also features upgraded business and economy cabins. There is no detail has not been thought through. Let’s take a look at what you can already start experiencing on your next flight.
Configured in a 1-1-1 layout, the first class cabin has a rich and fresh palette of gold, grey, and tan—giving it a very modern yet extravagant feel.
Each suite has a floor to ceiling door that slides open, and once you enter, you are greeted with a comfortably soft, leather seat that can recline into a flat bed. Moreover, the seat can be placed in a “zero-gravity” position that makes the chair feel weightless—a concept influenced by NASA.
If you’re lucky to be sitting in the middle-isle suite, you can experience Emirates’ very first virtual windows. These windows show the outside view via a real-time camera that has been installed on the plane’s exterior. The outer suites provide binoculars for those who want to see beyond what’s in front of them.
Other features include a room service call button, a personal mini-bar with drinks and snacks, and a service window where flight attendants can give you drinks without ever opening your door. There’s also the 32-inch HD screen with over 2,500 channels of entertainment, noise-canceling headphones made exclusively for Emirates by Bowers & Wilkins, luxurious Bulgari amenity kit with skincare products by Byredo, and the Hydra Active moisturizing pajamas to keep you comfortable for the entire flight. And that’s not all—a full-length closet has been installed inside every suite to hang your coats and jackets. It really is a mini-hotel room.
Aside from the cabin, first class passengers can devour meals from the dine on-demand food service that has been curated by award-winning chefs. Each meal is served on fine dinnerware and paired with high-end wines, champagne and liquors.
