Emirates New Business Class (777LR): stunningly comfortable seat.
Just had the chance to fly Emirates new Business Class on the 777-200LR.
I have one word to say. WOW.
The seats are wide and incredibly plush, reclining into a fully flat, non-claustrophobic bed, and the TV screen is ENORMOUS, and ultra high quality. The cabin feels very spacious (there are no central overhead bins, nor any bulkhead partitions at Doors 2L and R), and unless you’re in a window seat, you have direct aisle access.
It’s still a bit blingy but more elegant than its predecessor. My flight was only two hours so I didn’t get the full service experience one would on a longer flight, but from a hard-product perspective, I was truly stunned. Too bad this product is only on 10 aircraft of their entire fleet.
I’m posting this because on paper we make fun of Emirates- how on earth can they get away with such dense seating on their 777s. But in practice, the seating was more comfortable and certainly more spacious feeling than most other airlines’ J class products.
