Emirates has unveiled a brand new Business Class cabin and configuration on its 10 existing Boeing 777-200LR aircraft.
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. They are laid out in a 2-2-2 configuration for the first time.
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. The seatback screens are 23 inches wide.
The overhead bins in the centre of the cabin have been removed for an airier and more spacious feel on board.
The new Business Class cabin also features a social area where passengers can help themselves to snacks such as crisps, sandwiches and fruit, as well as drinks.
Economy class seats have also been refreshed to the latest colour palette of soft greys and blues. The ergonomically designed seats have adjustable leather headrests. Passengers can enjoy up to 3,000 channels of on-demand entertainment 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.
