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.

The date of the proposed flight is in August and on the website it's showing as fully First Class from LHR through to BKK although as you say currently it's only partially First Class. Wonder what are the chances of getting this new cabin assuming that they subsequently don't switch aircraft.

Sorry if this has already been covered in this thread.. is it possible to book the new F as an award or is it still cash only? If possible, what's the cheapest way to do it (eg what programme?), as I assume Emirates own will be quite expensive. I read something about JAL, but would appreciate any guidance!

Also, what routes is it currently flying, still BRU and GVA?

I’m thinking marginally less than that, with regards to DXB-BKK

Also interested in this. Has there been any news?

Wouldn't it make sense to get new cabin to ULH flights? For example the DXB-->GIG/EZE, 15-18h flights, markets that command farily high prices..
New F on this route would certinaly make me choose EK and I'm inclined to think I wouldn't be the only one.

No.It wouldn't make sense.
True,flying ULH between DXB and GIG/EZE in F is expensive,however IMO the best carrier to fly that route in F is EK,so there's no incentive for EK to have the new cabin on this route, the belief being that F punters will pay for flying EK even if old cabin.

Also I'm sure that there's some kind of connection between where the elite of UAE fly to (on EK) and to where the new F cabin is going to eg Switzerland.

Also, I think they currently use the 'new F frames' only on routes where they can serve a destination (or more accurately a 'flight number pair') with only one frame. For instance in the GVA route the aircraft is back in DXB before they need one for the flight the following day. For an ULH that would not be the case.

also isn’t the seat manufacturer in GVA? So in terms of maintenance and repairs of minor issues with the new config that is ideal. The second flight being BRU with similar distance means frames can be interchanged between the two routes so whichever needs TLC can go to GVA.

THe seats are already a little grubby! In my suite the mirror where the vanity kit is wouldn’t pop open as the spring was broken but they don’t have spare parts due to it being so new!

Still amazing but i worry about what these will look like in 2 years time

Has EK added the new F on the second BRU-DXB flight (EK181)?
EK 181 now showing new seat map with 6 seats in F.

It looks like it's been operating since the start of this month, although it and EK183 have both had the odd older plane. in that period too.

Thanks for the info. I guess I just have to cross my fingers and hope that it’ll be the new aircraft.

Is it still true, that Emirates launches the new First Class to München/Munich at 1th July on flight EK53/54?

New 777 F Class?

How do you know the seatmap of the new 777 F? Are all 777’s going to MUC have the new F class?
