New Emirates First Class Suite to Debut on Vienna Route

New Emirates First Class Suite to Debut on Vienna Route

Emirates’ latest B777-300ER aircraft fitted with the ‘game changer’ First Class product will operate between Dubai and Vienna on a daily basis from 1st December 2018. Austria will be one of the first countries in the world to be served by Emirates’ B777 and A380 aircraft with fully enclosed private suites inspired by Mercedes-Benz.

With floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and sleek design features, Emirates’ new fully-enclosed private suites on the B777 offer up to 40 square feet of personal space and are laid out in a 1-1-1 configuration.

The seats recline into a fully-flat bed and can be placed in a ‘zero-gravity’ position inspired by NASA technology, giving a feeling of relaxation and weightlessness. The aircraft also has the industry’s first virtual windows for suites located in the middle aisle. These virtual windows project the view from outside the aircraft using real time camera technology.

In the other suites, binoculars are available for customers who want to explore the sky outside their windows. Customers in each suite can easily communicate with the cabin crew or request for room service through a new video call function.

Business Class

The Business Class seats are inspired by the interior of a modern sports car, and feature an ergonomically designed headrest with a sleek overall look and feel. It has touchscreen controls for the seat and inflight entertainment system, several personal lighting options, privacy panels between seats, a shoe storage area, footrest, and a personal mini-bar.

Economy Class

The Economy Class cabin features a colour palette of soft greys and blues. The ergonomically designed seats come with leather headrests that have flexible side panels and can be adjusted vertically for optimum support.
