Emi­rates’ game changer first class suite to de­but on Vi­enna route

Malta Independent - - Business -

Emi­rates’ lat­est Boe­ing 777-300ER air­craft fit­ted with the ‘Game Changer’ First Class prod­uct will op­er­ate be­tween Dubai and Vi­enna on a daily ba­sis from 1 De­cem­ber 2018. Aus­tria will be one of the first few coun­tries in the world to be served by Emi­rates’ Boe­ing 777 air­craft with fully en­closed pri­vate suites in­spired by Mercedes-Benz.

Emi­rates flies to Vi­enna twice daily and both flights will be op­er­ated by its flag­ship prod­ucts – the iconic A380 and Game Changer Boe­ing 777 prod­uct – un­der­scor­ing its com­mit­ment to the mar­ket since 2004. It also means cus­tomers trav­el­ling to or from Vi­enna can en­joy the lat­est Emi­rates prod­ucts re­gard­less of which of the two daily flights they opt for.

With floor-to-ceil­ing slid­ing doors and sleek de­sign fea­tures, Emi­rates’ new pri­vate suites on the Boe­ing 777 takes lux­ury and pri­vacy to the next level. Of­fer­ing up to 40 square feet of per­sonal space each, these spa­cious, ful­lyen­closed pri­vate suites are laid out in a 1-1-1 con­fig­u­ra­tion.

The new suites were de­signed with cus­tomer com­fort in mind as the seats re­cline into a fully flat bed and can be placed in a “ze­ro­grav­ity” po­si­tion in­spired by NASA tech­nol­ogy, giv­ing a feel­ing of re­lax­ation and weight­less­ness. The air­craft also boasts the in­dus­try’s first vir­tual win­dows for suites lo­cated in the mid­dle aisle. These vir­tual win­dows project the view from out­side the air­craft us­ing real time cam­era tech­nol­ogy. In the other suites, binoc­u­lars are avail­able for cus­tomers who want to ex­plore the sky out­side their win­dows. Cus­tomers in each suite can eas­ily com­mu­ni­cate with the cabin crew or re­quest for room ser­vice through a new video call func­tion.

From First Class through to the Busi­ness and Econ­omy Class cab­ins, the lat­est Emi­rates 777 air­craft boasts multi-mil­lion dol­lar fea­tures that in­clude newly-de­signed seats and up­graded in­flight en­ter­tain­ment sys­tems in all cab­ins, giv­ing cus­tomers an un­matched travel ex­pe­ri­ence re­gard­less of which cabin they are in.

The Busi­ness Class seats are in­spired by the in­te­rior of a mod­ern sports car, and fea­ture an er­gonom­i­cally de­signed head­rest with a sleek over­all look and feel. It has touch­screen con­trols for the seat and in­flight en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem, sev­eral per­sonal light­ing op­tions, pri­vacy pan­els be­tween seats, a shoe stowage area, footrest, and a per­sonal mini-bar.

The Econ­omy Class cabin fea­tures a colour pal­ette of soft greys and blues. The er­gonom­i­cally de­signed seats come with full leather head­rests that have flex­i­ble side pan­els and can also be ad­justed ver­ti­cally for op­ti­mum sup­port.

Op­er­at­ing one of the two daily flights from Dubai to Vi­enna, trav­ellers can en­joy the new Boe­ing 777 prod­uct on flight EK125 de­part­ing Dubai at 16:50hrs, ar­riv­ing in Vi­enna at 20:00hrs. The re­turn flight EK126 leaves Vi­enna at 21:55hrs, ar­riv­ing back at Dubai In­ter­na­tional Air­port at 06:35hrs the fol­low­ing day. The other daily ro­ta­tion be­tween Dubai and Vi­enna, EK127/EK128, is served by an Emi­rates Air­bus A380.

Emi­rates’ prod­ucts and ser­vices across cabin classes are con­tin­u­ally im­proved and en­hanced fol­low­ing feed­back from cus­tomers. The air­line pi­o­neered the pri­vate suite con­cept on com­mer­cial flights in 2003, es­tab­lish­ing a new stan­dard for First Class travel.

Emi­rates is the largest op­er­a­tor of the Boe­ing 777 air­craft, one of the most pop­u­lar and ad­vanced wide-bod­ied air­craft in com­mer­cial op­er­a­tion to­day. The air­line has 164 Boe­ing 777s in its fleet, and a fur­ther 151 on firm or­der, in­clud­ing 150 of the next gen­er­a­tion Boe­ing 777x air­craft. To­day, Emi­rates op­er­ates the Boe­ing 777 to more than 130 pas­sen­ger and cargo des­ti­na­tions from its hub in Dubai.
