Emirates Airlines Unveils Revolutionary First Class Suites

NEC member Emirates Airlines recently revealed new first class cabins that include innovative new amenities.

The suites were unveiled at the Dubai Airshow in November 2017, and the first flight of Emirates’ Boeing 777 with six private, fully enclosed suites, took place on December 1, 2017. The suites were inspired by Mercedes Benz S-Class luxury sedans and include virtual windows, zero gravity seats, floor to ceiling doors and up to 40 square feet of personal space. Emirates’ luxury car service is also included with a passenger’s ticket.

“Emirates has a track record of successful innovations that have raised the bar for the industry in terms of inflight customer experience since its launch in 1985. Its fleet of Boeing 777 and Airbus A380s boasts unparalleled entertainment on demand in all classes with its award-winning ice system, and inflight connectivity through in-seat text, email and telephone services, as well as mobile and wi-fi services,” stated Emirates in a press release.

The New England Council commends Emirates’ modernization and luxury amenities for their passengers.  Read more in Forbes and Emirates’ press release.
