Emirates’ new First Class suites to include NASA-inspired beds

Emirates has given the first sneak peek of its First Class private suites on board its Boeing 777 aircraft.

Each has a floor to ceiling sliding door leading to 40-square feet of private space that includes a NASA-inspired fully flat bed which can be placed in a ‘zero-gravity’ position, ‘virtual windows’ that project the outside view using real time camera technology and a 32-inch full HD LCD TV screen.

The airline has also upgraded its economy and business class cabins, walkways, washrooms and galleys after a multi-million dollar investment and will feature newly-designed seats and upgraded inflight entertainment.

Sir Tim Clark, president, Emirates Airline said: “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.

“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.

Emirates’ latest First Class product gives a nod to the design philosophy of the Mercedes-Benz S- Class after a collaboration with the car manufacturer. S-Class cars will be used as part of Emirates’ complimentary chauffeur-drive service for its First Class passengers.

The new cabin design will enter service on December 1, making its debut on flights to Geneva and Brussels.
