New first class and on 777

So from 1 Dec on the Dxb sea route you can see some interesting looking seat maps - I'm looking forward to this being revealed fully....

Interesting , however i would say it is just a error. I have found on the Emirates website and app that certain seats especially in J/F are missing and they usually fix themselves once the T-2 months mark hits ( usually when EK select what aircraft is flying what route).

Would not get too excited yet

He even gets a mention in the text:

. . . . . FlyerTalk member m3red notes that as of December 1, 2017, Emirates shows a new seatmap in first class for their 777 flights between Dubai and Seattle.

Points From the Pacific actually wrote the original post referencing m3red's thread which Lucky "reused" (with acknowledgment of course) as many bloggers on boardingarea do.

It's not an error it's 1-1-1 and 6 in F starting on the 77w which has been my understanding for a while.

Im trying to picture what this layout is going to look like but the 2 blocked seats are just confusing me, perhaps those will be double occupancy, similar to the residence?

It's 3 per row, possibly a little similar to the EY Apartment staggered concept, hence the layout like this on the seat map?

It may be that the window suites are horizontal while the center ones are staggered lengthwise or something, roughly like this, though not sure how it would work in the width of the aircraft:



Another option more like EY, though then there would be rows 1-3 not 1-2 (this would be somewhat staggered presumably, and single-aisle):

The only way I could see it working for 1-1-1 would be like the old Lufthansa 744 F in the bubble - a permanent bed next to a limited incline seat. Can't really see how there'd be space for anything else. I'd be totally onboard for that though

I think the seats would more likely look like you mentioned. That is, there will be seats A1, E1, K1 on row 1; and A2, F2, K2 on row 2.

That sounds promising, finally all-aisle-access in J?

Rival Gulf carrier Etihad Airways offers a three-cabin The Residence product on its A380 superjumbos, as well as nine seats in its First Apartment[...]
9 seats is a bit much for one apartment if you ask me, think I prefer EK J 2-3-2 over that
