Emirates’ First Class cabin is about to get a lot fancier. The award-winning airline announced that it will be revealing its new First Class offering at the Dubai Air Show in November.

While details of the new look are being kept under wraps, the seating arrangement has been released.

Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER will see its First Class cabins feature six seats arranged in of three groups as opposed to eight (1-2-1).

And it’s not just the airline’s First Class cabins that are getting a new look; Emirates revealed that the aircraft will see new features added to its Business and Economy Class cabins too.

Addressing the makeover, Emirates’ CEO Tim Clarke released an official statement that reads: “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.”

We’re pretty excited to see what changes Emirates has in mind - it is one of the leading innovative forces in the airline industry, after all.

The airline pioneered the private suite concept on commercial flights in 2003 which established a new standard for First Class travel. The airline’s inflight customer experience already includes shower spas, an onboard lounge, Wi-Fi and of course, it’s award-winning entertainment system ICE.
