Emirates unveils more spacious Business Class seats on its Boeing 777 aircraft

The airline’s two-class Boeing 777-200LR features a 2-2-2 Business Class
seat configuration

First of these newly refurbished aircraft will operate to Fort
Lauderdale from 6 March

Dubai, UAE, 5 March 2018 – Emirates has unveiled a brand new Business Class
cabin and configuration on its Boeing 777-200LR aircraft, with new wider
seats laid out in a 2-2-2 configuration for the first time.

The airline has invested over US$150 million to refurbish the 10 existing
777-200LR aircraft in its fleet.

The newly refurbished Emirates 777-200LR aircraft is set in a two-class
configuration which offers 38 Business Class seats and 264 seats in Economy
Class. While the Business Class seats are in the same design and shape of
Emirates’ latest lie-flat seats, they are now two inches wider for a more
comfortable journey. The seats retain the champagne coloured finish and
diamond stitch pattern on the full leather cover, and the ergonomically
designed headrest revealed on Emirates’ newest Boeing 777 in November.

The Business Class seat has a pitch of 72 inches and moves into a fully flat
sleeping position. It also 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.

Luxury and comfort are at the heart of Emirates’ product refresh as overhead
bins in centre of the cabin have been removed for an airier and more
spacious feel on board. The cabin boasts electronic windows and the largest
personal in-flight entertainment (IFE) screens in Business Class at 23
inches wide.

The cabin also features the Ghaf tree – considered the national tree of the
United Arab Emirates, and now a signature design on the latest Emirates

In addition, the new Business Class cabin features a social area – unique to
the Boeing 777-200LR fleet. The mini lounge area features snacks such as
crisps, sandwiches and fruit, as well as beverages for customers to help
themselves to during the flight.

The offering will complement Emirates’ full service of regionally inspired
cuisine prepared by gourmet chefs, and accompanied by some of the most
exclusive wines, champagnes and spirits in the world.

Economy class seats onboard the 777-200LR have also been refreshed to the
latest 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. Customers can enjoy up
to 3,000 channels of on-demand entertainment in ice with 600 movies, over
200 hours of TV, and thousands of music tracks every month. The aircraft is
also equipped with Wi-Fi and Live TV across all classes.

Emirates’ newly refurbished 777-200LR aircraft will go into service on 6
March to Fort Lauderdale. This is the first of 10 aircraft which will be
retrofitted with the new configuration over the course of the year. The
refurbished 777-200LR aircraft is planned for several destinations including
Emirates’ most recently announced destination – Santiago, Chile.
