“Borrowing inspiration from our flagship A380 in every cabin, our Boeing 777 with revamped interiors boast the very best in customer comfort and will feature modern design details and signature cabin finishings, with a new Business Class cabin that provides more privacy for our customers, in addition to other thoughtful touches that underscore our exceptional value proposition.  Our investment and intense focus on offering the best possible product across every cabin class also ensures we provide a consistent experience on both the Boeing 777s and A380s.”

Emirates’ refreshed Business Class cabin will focus on personalized privacy and elevated comfort with generously 44-inch pitched seats that convert into comfortable 20.7 inch flat beds.  With a staggered seating arrangement, all Business Class guests will enjoy direct aisle access.  Each seat also features a touch screen controller for IFE and seat operation, along with a personal 23-inch HD screen, which is linked to the carrier’s award-winning ‘ice’ entertainment system.  Additionally, Business guests will appreciate a personal mini-bar, ample storage, charging outlets and more.  The refreshed Business Class cabin also features a small grab-and-go bar for guests to quickly pickup inflight snacks and refreshments. 

In total, Emirates has earmarked 191 aircraft for a full revamp, including 81 Boeing 777s, representing an over $3.0 billion investment.
