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.

There is also no announced programme to refit the A380s. My suspicion is that there won't be a major refit programme, but rather that eventually (in another 2 years or so perhaps) we will see the oldest 77W cabins either being refurbished to the new config or those aircraft being phased out completely (this is perhaps the more likely outcome given current pilot shortages, load issues and the 77X programme with deliveries beginning in a few years in addition to the 787s coming in in a few years' time). It may thus be another 4-5 years until even a somewhat significant portion of the fleet (>25%) has the new cabins

Thanks for the update and I tend to agree with you making more sense given the number of hours flown to wait till the new 77x and 787 arrives. I really like long haul on the 787 much more passenger friendly on air scrubbing.

Tavel safe

Has anyone heard plans of them installing it on the A380? Also why arenít they making a bigger advertising campaign about it if itís going to be fleetwide. Look at UA and Polaris-not Polaris

Stockholm Syndrome. Same reason people make elite status with Hilton!

Yes - supposed to be 10 suites not 14. Time will tell though given the extreme cost and the cost cutting/pilot shortage at the moment.

You should know better... you know very well that they are all just one big credit card selling machine...

Business Class Seating 777-300ER

Have these seats been upgraded on the entire fleet as the website leads one to believe ? Reason I am asking is deciding on Biz out of SEA versus 380 out of SFO

Thank you

I believe only 4 of the 10 frames have been reconfigured. Looking at the last month, it seems that if a 77L operates the SEA flight it is a reconfigured frame with the exception of one day.

Some of the 77W airframes have the newer J seats but still in a 2-3-2 configuration. Some of the 77L airframes have been operating the SEA route of late of which at least 4 have been retrofitted with the new J seats in a 2-2-2 cabin layout and removing the F cabin as mentioned up-thread.

It's a 77W F thread, there's no new F on 77Ls
