Emirates recently updated its business class cabin and configuration on its Boeing 777-200LR aircraft. Featuring wider seats, the airline has revealed that it will utilise two-class configuration which offers 38 Business Class seats and 264 seats in Economy Class.
The announcement marks the latest step in the airline’s refurbishment $150m project aimed at revamping 10 existing 777-200LR aircraft in the fleet.
Based upon the design and shape of Emirates’ lie-flat seats, the new business class seats are reportedly two inches wider and have a pitch of 72 inches, which allows the seats to transform into a fully flat sleeping position.
The business class cabin has also been updated with the removal of overhead bins in the centre cabin in an effort to create a more spacious environment.
In addition to the updated seats, the business class cabin on Boeing 777-200LR aircraft will also feature a new social space. This new area will feature a mini lounge with access to snacks and beverages accessible to passengers during the flight.
Emirates has also updated the seats in its economy class to utilise the latest colour palette of soft greys and blues.
The first of Emirates’ refurbished 777-200LR aircraft are expected to go into service on 6 March for flights to Fort Lauderdale.
