review emirates boeing 777 new first class dubai to brussels

Sumary of Review: Emirates Boeing 777 new First Class Dubai to Brussels:

  • On October 10th 2018, I flew in an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER featuring the carrier newest and game-changing First Class product from Dubai (DXB) to Brussels (BRU)..
  • With floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, virtual windows, beds with zero-gravity position, and a sleek design inspired by Mercedes-Benz, Emirates’ new B777 First Class suites take luxury and privacy to the next level..
  • As of now Emirates’ new First Class is only available on newly delivered B777-300ER aircraft which operate flights between Dubai and Brussels, Geneva, Vienna, Munich and London Stansed..
  • It unclear if Emirates plans to retrofit its existing B777 and A380 fleet with the new First Class suites due to exorbitant costs (upwards of $30 million USD per aircraft)..
  • Also, it currently impossible to book the new Emirates B777 First Class suite with award miles and it not clear when that option will become available..
  • Emirates features in my top 10 lists of the best airlines for longhaul Business Class, the best airlines for longhaul First Class, the most luxurious A380 First Class products, the world best airlines for in-flight meals, the best First Class lounges, the best Business Class amenity kits, and the best First Class amenity kits..
  • worst suites) Amenities Meals Entertainment Onboard internet Other inflight experiences (views, crew, lavatory) My verdict (score) 1..
  • EMIRATES CHAUFFEUR SERVICE One of the great perks about flying First (or Business) Class with Emirates is the complimentary chauffeur-driven airport transfers..
  • Within the United Arab Emirates (home base of Emirates), the complimentary chauffeur-drive service is available for all destinations within the country, and is provided in a fleet of BMW and Mercedes cars with free in-car Wi-Fi, so you can catch up on emails, browse your social feeds or send a message on route to your final destination..
  • EMIRATES FIRST CLASS LOUNGE AT DUBAI AIRPORT All Emirates flights arrive and depart from Emirates Terminal 3 at Dubai International airport, currently the world largest airport terminal, with over 1,713,000 m2 (18,440,000 sq ft) of space..
  • The Emirates First Class lounge in Dubai is one of the most spacious, unique and innovative lounges in the world..
  • In fact, it more of an ultra-luxe concourse floating above the terminal ground floor rather than a defined space like you find in other First Class lounges around the world..
  • Immediately after you enter the lounge via the elegant reception area, you find yourself in a gallery lined by high-end, duty-free boutique shops, including brands such as Tiffany&Co and Bvlgari..
  • At the opposite side of the lounge, the two walkways converge into the main seating area, which features a gorgeous chandelier..
  • It pretty insane that this ridiculously overwhelming space and the large number of seats accommodate only a few First Class passengers, but I guess that is what Emirates aims to reach:.
  • Every seating area in the First Class lounge comes with its own food station, with food varying from light snacks, sandwiches and sushi, to desserts and cheese spreads..
  • As an Emirates First Class passenger, you can also enjoy complimentary spa treatments at the Timeless Spa, which is located next to the First Class lounge entrance..
  • The lounge also features a business center, a stylish decorated cigar room, a wine cellar, and two sleeping rooms (each featuring a dozen day beds)..

  • FIGURES ABOUT EMIRATES’ LONGHAUL FLEET With a current 105-strong Airbus A380 fleet and an order backlog for 57 additional aircraft combined, Emirates’ commitment to the A380 program is worth over $ 60 billion USD..
  • All Emirates A380s are being fitted at the Airbus factory in Hamburg including significant cabin interior work and final livery, and are being delivered from Hamburg..
  • The Emirates A380 program creates and supports manufacturing jobs across the global aircraft manufacturing supply chain..
  • Airbus estimates that Emirates’ A380 orders alone support 41,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs in Europe, including some 14,500 in Germany alone..
  • Emirates has 165 Boeing 777s in its fleet, one of the most popular and advanced wide-bodied aircraft in commercial operation today..
  • The airline welcomed the first Boeing 777-300ER aircraft into its fleet in March 2005 and over the last 13 years, the 777-300ER has become the backbone of Emirates’ fleet operating currently to over 119 destinations across the airline global network..
  • Emirates has operated one out of every five Boeing 777-300ER aircraft produced to date and the average age of a Boeing 777-3000ER in Emirates’ fleet is a mere 6.5 years..
  • These next generation aircraft will have a more fuel efficient design and will feature larger windows, increased cabin pressure and humidity, higher ceilings, wider cabin and an advanced inflight entertainment system contributing to a superior customer experience..
  • FIRST CLASS CABIN Emirates’ newly delivered B777-300ER planes feature only 6 First Class suites arranged in 1-1-1 layout:.
  • That a 20% downscale compared to Emirates’ B777s with the old layout, which feature 8 First Class suites (4 along the windows and 4 arranged in the center)..
  • The cabin itself feels a little claustrophobic and the aisle is very narrow, but that because the 6 suites – each one offering up to 40 sq ft (3,7sq ft) of personal space – take most of the cabin space..
  • The suites are so large that they have ample space to change in the privacy of your suite even after the bed has been made..
  • The most remarkable cabin feature outside the suites is a magnificent artistic motif printed on the front wall of the first middle suite, which represents the Ghaf (prosopis cineraria) tree, a figure that is used as a design highlight throughout the aircraft..
  • An indigenous evergreen plant, the Ghaf is a considered the national tree of the United Arab Emirates, and has deep cultural and ecological significance..
  • WORST SEATS) Each suite is fully enclosed with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, a first in the airline industry..
  • Contrary to Emirates’ older B777 and A380 First Class suites – which have a lot of walnut veneer and gold trim in their design – the new B777 First Class suite features a sleek interior with a soothing color palette of soft greys, cream and champagne, conveying a contemporary, open and airy feel..
  • Above the three windows (which feature stylish curtains instead of traditional blends) as well as on the suite front wall, there another motif of the Ghaf tree..
  • It has an ergonomic soft leather seat at its center, which can be adjusted by a control panel in the arm rest into dozens of custom positions for optimal comfort, including the fully flat-bed position (a bed of 86 inches or 218 cm long with retractable armrest)..
  • The suite side (towards the aisle) features a personal wardrobe, which is large enough to hang a jacket or coat..
  • On the other side of the seat (towards the windows), you find a tablet and another control panel, which can be used to command the inflight entertainment system or even to video call ‘room service’ (more on that below)..
  • There a non-cooled minibar on one side of the TV (containing non-alcoholic drinks) and a small cabinet on the other (with a glass and a bottle of Evian water)..
  • The suite large tray table is hidden under that desk and you need to pull on a robe-like bar in front of you to release the tray table and slide it towards you..
  • There are subtle differences with Emirates’ old First Class suite, such as the location of the private minibar on both sides of the TV screen instead of in the arm rest, but overall, the new B777 First Class suite layout feels very similar..
  • The soft leather seat reclines into a fully flat-bed that can be placed in a ‘zero-gravity‘ position inspired by NASA technology, giving a feeling of relaxation and weightlessness, similar to what astronauts experience onboard spacecraft..
  • To ensure all First Class passengers have a view, Emirates introduced the industry first virtual windows for the two suites located in the middle aisle..
  • These virtual windows project the view from outside the aircraft using real-time technology with fiber-optic cameras..
  • Passengers can easily communicate with the cabin crew or request ‘room service’ using a video call function on the suite tablet (similar to a 5-star hotel)..
  • The suite comes with a service window where you can be served drinks and canapes undisturbed after closing the floor-to-ceiling sliding doors..
  • There are different lighting themes available (with adjustment of the brightness within each theme), ranging from red, orange and yellow to green, blue and purple..
  • Your chosen color will appear throughout your suite, such as on the floor-level mood lighting, behind and around the curtains, and in the wall pattern..
  • As you can imagine, all 6 suites are equally excellent (especially since the middle seats feature virtual windows, allowing a view for all First Class passengers)..
  • That said, couples or travel companions may want to choose the pair of suites 1A&1E or 2K&2F since these suites have their entrances located in front of each other (so you can still communicate with each other when you leave the doors of these suites open)..

  • The kit contains Bvlgari woody floral fragrance – Eau Parfumée au thé noir – in addition to the usual necessities – albeit in luxe edition – such as toothbrush, toothpaste, handkerchiefs, and deodorants..
  • The men amenity kit also provides Gilette shaving foam and a razor, as well as moisturizers and aftershaves by Bvlgari..
  • The First Class amenity kit content is not different from what you get as an Emirates Business Class passenger..
  • In addition to an amenity kit, Emirates also offers an ‘inspiration kit‘ with Breydo skincare products to its First Class passengers….
