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.

Nope, only 77L amongst two-class birds. Given the type of routes the two-class 77W fly to (low-yield, Y heavy), I suspect it is very low on the priority.

A6-EPV onwards have the new J whereas A6-EQH onwards have the new J and F.

So the EPV is a 3-class 77W with old F and new J (shown in the photo)? This is a new one for me.

Looking at the seatmap for the next flight scheduled for EPV, the layout matches the existing seatmaps for the old 3-class 77W so I'm intrigued.

EPV will have the same seating config as most 3 class 77W except with new J seats

In addition A6-EPV and newer also feature the updated lavatories including one large one in the F section.

Routes for new First class on Emirates B777W

I cannot find the routes for new Emirates First Class to Europe during this coming September.
Try to book and found that the routes to Paris, Geneva, Zurich and Nice are all old First Class.

Can someone tell me about this

Regards,

I'm not sure how up to date it is, but look at the Wiki on this thread:

777 New First Class

ETA: Geneva still seems to be getting it on EK83/84, although it's not a daily flight so you may have to adjust your search dates to find it.

I think some of these routes only have new F temporarily whilst the routes that did have new F before COVID were suspended, so imagine quite a few of these may be losing it shortly. STN and HND come to mind as routes that were new F pre-COVID, STN is already scheduled to resume with new F in August, HND I don't think has a resumption date yet but surely will have new F when it does come back.

Is there a website that shows which ones have the retrofitted J? As in, are they working on retrofitting more upwards from EPV (EPU) next?

Im on EWR-ATH on Sunday and while its not EQH-EQO with the new F and J it has been about 80% showing EPV-EQG this past week, so hoping for the new J.

There are no retrofit 77W only the 77L were retrofitted. There are no public plans to retrofit J class but they are adding Premium Economy to some of the older frames. They seem to trying to use the new J frames on ATH-EWR so I think your chances are good but of course we cant know till the aircraft leaves DXB

Since EK will need to keep some of the 77W's longer in the fleet due to the ongoing delays of thee 77X it looks like the planes that will get Premium economy will also get a new C Class in a 1-2-1 configuration and likely updated IFE etc but if this will actually happen and also if new F will be installed is not clear from the announcements so far.

Currently the new F is regularely utilized on NRT, ZRH, GVA, IAD and BRU flights and randomly on some other flights. But officially the new F is not dedicated to any specific route at this stage.

The formal announcement from EK said roughly half of the two fleets will be retrofitted with PE, and they are considering revamping J on those aircraft, but no decision taken. The announcement said nothing about F. Link below:
