Emirates has unveiled the new first class cabin for their 777s at the Dubai Air Show on November 12th, 2017.

Notably, the new F cabin is fully enclosed from floor to ceiling, has a reduction from 8 seats to 6 total, had virtual windows for the center cabins and features video-based room service ordering.

Business and Economy cabins have also been refreshed, but not completely overhauled.

NO.
​​​​​​​Normally EK 183 is 6F (new F), EK 181 is 8F (old F).
And even this is not guaranteed. But until today, it has never been new F on both flights. There is only one airframe Ďdedicated Ď to BRU.

At moment, GVA has two daily flights with the new suite and BRU has one daily flight...

But this can change very fast, for commercial, operacional or technical reasons.

Thank you so much. Glad I asked. Gonna give it a miss then as it's sold out for almost all days and the ones that aren't are 1000+ more then the other flight Emirates should make it more clear on their site that it's a diff plane on both legs. I'm surely not the only one who would be all excited about the flight only then to find out it's the old cabin

These routes announcements are so weird? They have more premium markets than these... I follow the loads on the BRU flight weekly and it's mostly empty

I suppose it has more to do with what the competition are doing as well, and having the 'latest' 777 is a competitive edge - even if the F cabin isn't the choice, it may stimulate J and Y. I think Qatar have been increasing capacity in those markets of late.

I guess with Stansted it signals a "credible" alternative to the A380 heavy London, and a PR opportunity that will hit all of England come launch time.

Sad as it is, route management, and all the intricacies interests me - though I have no experience whatsoever!

I was wondering: What does Emirates do on a inaugural flight? I.e. the june 8 flight from London to Dubai for example? is it just the standard rain shower from firetrucks over the plane when it arrives or do PAX get special gifts from Emirates etc.? Anyone ever been on one?

Yes, indeed the seat map suggests this.
Only on that date and they are not selling any seats (F0 A0). 3 seats have been allocated.
Maybe some special event?

Hi All,

Does anyone know of any potential long haul routes on the new 777 F in the pipeline? I heard a while back that BNE and PER were possibly being considered?
