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.

This German Blog seems to have the pictures of the new first class.
Fully enclosed suites with walls to the cabin ceiling. Plus "Video-Windows" for the middle seats.
It looks amazing.

Looks like award space has been removed as I couldn't find any for either route in F. Not surprising.

Looks superb. Colour scheme in Y is a bit weird tho!
And they got rid of the second controller/screen?

F suites look amazing, not sure if I'm a big fan of the darker wood used in J though.

There is a nice video on the @Emirates Instagram page if someone can link or load it through.

There is no chance for two guest to dine together or to have a suite which connects. Might be a big no-go for many.

Fact Sheet PDF in press release, few interesting points:

- Video Call feature to order room service (love the use of term "Room service")
- 13-inch wireless controller for ICE
- chandelier style lights in every suite
- overhead bin storage + storage under seats
- writing kit and facial creams etc. remain
- NASA-inspired zero-gravity seat mode sounds exciting


I'm going to add a Wiki with all EK published information on the new 777 F

Maybe the middle seats will have "virtual window" to your traveling companion... that you can replace with your Celebrity/Model of choice. Now that would be a #Gamechanger .

I'd imagine that's a bit awkward though if they don't know they're being watched or only one side watches the other, unless it always has to be from both sides.

A central viewing slot/partition that can be opened would make sense, but would likely be blocked by the virtual window, which ultimately is a giant screen. Another issue: some people might be bothered by a giant TV essentially along the wall right next to them.

The new seat looks incredible! Looks much more spacious than the current F, though I was hoping they would remove the table surface below the screen.

But curious where is the overhead bin storage mentioned? Doesn't seem like there is space for it. And what's up with the EY-esque faceted tree motif replacing the gold plated Emirates logos
