Making its debut onboard a Boeing 777-300ER, Emirates’ new First Class cabin will feature six private suites laid out in a 1-1-1 layout, compared to the existing eight private suites in a 1-2-1 layout on its existing 777 fleet.

It added that it will announce the destinations where the new Boeing 777-300ER is to be deployed in due course. 

Sir Tim Clark, president, Emirates Airline said: “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. 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, flying 162 of them to six continents from its hub in Dubai.

The airline said it pioneered the private suite concept on commercial flights in 2003.
