Emi­rates has con­firmed that its new first class prod­uct will be un­veiled at the Dubai Air Show in Novem­ber. Mak­ing its de­but on­board a Boe­ing 777300ER air­craft, the new first class cabin will fea­ture six pri­vate suites laid out in a 1-1-1 con­fig­u­ra­tion, com­pared to the ex­ist­ing eight seats in a 1-2-1 lay­out.

In ad­di­tion to the re­designed first class prod­uct, Emi­rates will in­tro­duce a range of other new fea­tures in the busi­ness and econ­omy class cab­ins.

The air­line said it would an­nounce the des­ti­na­tions to which the new Boe­ing 777-300ER will be de­ployed in due course.

“Our prod­ucts and ser­vices across cabin classes are con­tin­u­ally im­proved and en­hanced. But what our cus­tomers will see on Emi­rates’ new 777s start­ing from Novem­ber, will be a much big­ger re­vamp that takes our on­board ex­pe­ri­ence to the next level.

All cab­ins will sport a to­tally fresh new look,” said Sir Tim Clark, Emi­rates’ pres­i­dent.

“We are ex­cited to show­case the re­sults of years of plan­ning and development in­vested into our new first class of­fer­ing, and our over­all Emi­rates 777 ex­pe­ri­ence. More de­tails will fol­low, watch this space.”

Emi­rates is the world’s largest op­er­a­tor of the Boe­ing 777, op­er­at­ing 162 of the twin-aisle air­craft to six con­ti­nents from its hub in Dubai. The air­line pi­o­neered the pri­vate suite con­cept on com­mer­cial flights in 2003, when it launched fa­cil­i­ties such as pri­vate show­ers and an on­board lounge.
