Emirates has unveiled its newly refurbished Business class cabins, now featuring 38 new wider seats in a two-class configuration on ten of its Boeing 777-200LR aircraft.
While they are of the same design and shape of the airline’s latest lie-flat seats, the Business Class seats have been revamped to be bigger, better and wider, offering two extra inches for a total pitch of 72 inches, resulting in a more comfortable journey.
The seats also retain the champagne coloured finish and diamond stitch pattern on the full leather cover, and the ergonomically designed headrest which was revealed on Emirates’ newest Boeing 777 in November.
Other features of the Emirates’s Business Class seat include a fully lie-flat position, touchscreen controls for the seat and inflight entertainment system, several personal lighting options, privacy panels between the seat, a shoe stowage area, footrest and a personal mini bar.
For added comfort and a more spacious feel on board, overhead bins in the centre of the cabin have been removed with the cabin now featuring the Ghaf tree, a signature design on the latest Emirates aircraft and considered the national tree of the United Arab Emirates.
The new Business Class also highlights luxury and comfort with a unique Boeing 777 social area, featuring a mini lounge with offerings that will compliment Emirate’s full service of regionally inspired cuisine prepared by gourmet chefs.
On board the 777-200LR, the economy class seats have also been updated with 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.
Emirates’ newly refurbished 777 – 200LR aircraft will go into service 6 March to Fort Lauderdale, and is planned for several destinations including Emirates’ most recently announced destination – Santiago, Chile.
