DUBAI: Emirates today confirmed that its first two Boeing 777-300ER aircraft fitted with its soon-to-launch First Class product will operate from Dubai to the airline’s Belgian and Swiss destinations starting from 1st December 2017.
Emirates’ new First Class cabin will feature six private suites laid out in a 1-1-1 layout, compared to the eight private suites in a 1-2-1 layout on its existing 777 fleet. In addition to the entirely redesigned First Class product, Emirates’ new Boeing 777-300ERs will also boast refreshed features in the Business and Economy Class cabins.
Prior to entering commercial service, the first Emirates aircraft to feature the new private suites will be on display at the Dubai Airshow between 12th and 16th November, following a product reveal on the first day of the show.
Operating one of the two daily flights from Dubai to Geneva, travellers can enjoy the new product on flight EK083 departing Dubai at 1450hrs, arriving in Geneva at 1855hrs. The return flight EK084 leaves Geneva at 2040hrs, arriving back at Dubai International Airport at 0605hrs the following day.
