‘This is truly a game-changer’: Emirates unveils new first class suite

Emirates has released a new video showcasing its “game-changing” private first class suites on the Boeing 777-300.

Among the amazing features in the 3.7sq m cabin is a “zero gravity” seat, wide-screen TV and binoculars to take advantage of the views from three windows, The Sun reports.

The cabin, which won World’s Best First Class at the 2019 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for Airlines, was inspired by the sleek design of Mercedes Benz.

“This is a game-changer,” Emirates said in the video unveiling the new suite.

The Emirates suites offer total privacy with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and mood lighting.

Room service can be requested using the video call option, which offers a direct line to the cabin crew.

And it can all be done from the fully reclining leather seats, which are inspired by NASA’s “zero gravity” position, while wearing the complimentary pyjamas provided.

A 32-inch wide-screen touch screen TV features a selection of new films and TV shows, while the desk has a built-in amenity kit packed with items from beauty brand Byredo, including body lotion, a towelette, sleep oil and pillow mist infused with vitamins and camomile extracts.

Bowers & Wilkins E1 headphones are provided too, and they’re designed exclusively for Emirates with noise cancellation features.

Passengers who want to take advantage of the view from the windows can use the Steiner Safari binoculars provided in their suite.

While it doesn’t have the shower spa like first class on the Emirates A380, passengers do get chauffeur-driven private transfer from their home to the airport.

The suites don’t come cheap — they cost about $7400 each way, according to The Sun.

As if that luxury wasn’t enough, Emirates is also offering guests the option of having their bags checked in the comfort of their own home with a new service. At the price of about $125, the airline will even deliver luggage to the passenger’s house or hotel at the other end.
