Privacy, personalised service and glamour tipify Emirates’ cabins but even more money is being spent on a cabin upgrade programme which includes a new on-board Lounge for its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft.
We love their First Class product and you can read my trip report of the Emirates First Class Suite on their A380. Gold-clad suites come with a sliding door, a personal mini-bar and adjustable ambient lighting. At night, the crew will convert your seat to a super comfy fully flat-bed with a mattress, so you can arrive at your destination totally refreshed. If you don’t feel refreshed, take a shower in the sky. First Class private suites are available on all Emirates Airbus A380 and A340-500 aircraft, and most Boeing 777 aircraft. First Class cabins on other aircraft offer flat-bed seats or deeply-reclining comfort seats.
Emirates will launch a series of new cabin products and enhancements in 2017 for both its A380 and Boeing 777 fleet. Inspiration has been taken from private yacht cabins, and include increased seating space in the bar area, and a more intimate feel. The new cabin is currently being installed onto the first Emirates’ A380 aircraft and will come into operation in July 2017.
The multi-million dollar cabin enhancement is the result of customer feedback – First and Business Class passengers appreciate the opportunity to stretch their legs and mingle in the on-board lounge.
I have also put together an article on the best airline in the Middle East for Business Class.
