If you have already seen Emirates business class on the A380, then you’re familiar with the product featuring the not-so-desirable 2-2-2 layout on the Boeing 777. However, the airline has decided that their new Boeing 777X will feature a redesigned business class seat with a 1-2-1 layout—every passenger will be able to have direct aisle access.
Each Emirates redesigned business class seat on the Boeing 777X will have its own minibar located at the side of the seat. Unfortunately, due to the space on the Boeing 777X, showers and an onboard bar will not be available. Nonetheless, Emirates plans to install a small “common room” type of space in between the premium cabin for both business and first class to utilize.
The Emirates redesigned business class seat will not change in terms of dimensions and will still measure 78 inches long and 20.5 inches wide—the right amount of room for taller passengers. All other features will remain the same including one of the best in-flight entertainment systems in the world featuring live TV, multi-course meals that include a local dish, luxurious bedding and Bvlgari amenity kits.
Aside from the business class seat, the Boeing 777X will also feature six first class suites that are completely private at the front of the aircraft. These are the same first class suites that have been a game-changer ever since they were first introduced in 2017. One brilliant attribute available in first class is the virtual windows for the suites in the middle row, which will display the outside view via a built-in camera. Travelers can feel as though they are sitting at a window seat without actually sitting next to the window.
Due to debut next summer of 2020, the Emirates redesigned business class seat on the Boeing 777X will be well-received by frequent travelers. To get a taste of this seat, check out the video below of the current one available on the Boeing 777, courtesy of Emirates.
