In three days Emirates will be unveiling their new first class at the Dubai Airshow. From that time it’ll be less than three weeks until the plane is actually flying, as Emirates will be offering their new first class to Brussels and Geneva as of December 1, 2017.
As you’d expect, they’re not outright ruining the surprise before the big reveal, but they are dropping some hints. If you go to the emirates.com homepage in some countries (it doesn’t work on their US site, but does work on their UK site, for example), there’s a big banner at the top saying “watch this space for our 777 reveal.”
It has several rotating pictures, though they’re close-in. So it doesn’t give you an overall sense of what the suite is like, though it certainly gives you some ideas.
I have two takeaways based on this:
- Does each suite really have a personal temperature control panel?!
- The design looks a lot more understated than the current “blingy” first class suite
What do you make of the hints being dropped about the new Emirates first class suite? Will it be more or less impressive than Singapore Suites?
