Emirates has unveiled its latest business class cabin on the Boeing 777-200LR, which includes wider seats, set in a 2-2-2 configuration. Over $150 million (R1,76bn) was spent on the refurbishment. 

The aircraft offers 38 business-class seats and 264 in economy. The business-class seats have the same shape as Emirates’ latest lie-flat seats but are now 5cm wider and the champagne leather and diamond stitching have been retained. There are touch screen controls for the seat, the inflight entertainment system has a 58cm screen, numerous personal lighting options, a mini-bar, shoe stowage area, and privacy panels between the seats.

The overhead storage bins have been removed from the centre of the cabin, creating a more spacious feel. A social area has been included, and the mini lounge area is available for self service to customers throughout the flight. This offering complements Emirates’ full service cuisine prepared by professional chefs, and is accompanied by exclusive wines, champagnes and spirits.

Economy-class seats have also been refreshed in soft greys and blues. They have full leather headrests with flexible side panels, and can be adjusted vertically for optimum support.
