6 total seats. 40 sq ft. 1-1-1 configuration. Inspired by the S-Class Mercedes… Cue mouth drop.
While some airlines are rolling back first class expansion, Etihad, Singapore, and now Emirates are in an all out battle royale. YES!!!!!!!! Emirates announced earlier this year that they would have a MEGA reveal at the Dubai airshow come this November. Pins and needles have been the feeling ever since…anticipation has been built, but what would they debut? Let’s cut right to the chase and show you some jaw dropping pics, and the deets on when and where you can snag this unbelievable way to fly.
Zero Gravity position developed by Nasa to simulate weightlessness.
Even if it doesn’t…I want to try!
This Baller cabin hits the sky in 2 weeks.
- Dubai to Brussels and Geneva will use these new 777-300ER
- Chicago and Perth are rumored to follow next.
Assuming there is availability you could transfer miles into Emirates program, use Japan Airlines ( via SPG ), or redeem Alaska Air – once the Chicago route opens up. Let’s take a quick look:
SPG points have dropped below $0.02 for targeted offers. Chicago is 7200 miles away from Dubai. That would cost 100k JAL miles, or 80k SPG. You could have an opp to buy that flight for just $1600. Roundtrip is 155k miles or 125k SPG…$2500. Now we’re talking some crazy deals.
Alaska reliably puts their miles on sale for $0.02
Again, the odds that these flights open up right off the bat is pretty slim, but who knows, anything is possible. It costs 150k AS to redeem Chicago to Dubai. So the question becomes, is it worth $3k to experience the latest and possibly greatest mode of first class transport in commercial aviation?
Fully Enclosed. As you can see here. Doors, Ceiling, no one peering in.
Does this look like a middle seat? Those are virtual windows.
The images are real time, streaming from exterior cameras fitted to the plane.
Ipad, 2500 channels, and a 32 inch TV.
You’ll probably never want to sleep.
Hydra Active Pjs and Bvlgari amenitry kits. This is getting out of control.
While I think these are incredible looking suites, they are geared for the individual flyer. This is incredible if you’re flying alone, or just want alone time, but one of my favorite aspects of flying like this is enjoying it with someone else. For that reason alone, I’d be far more excited to fly Singapore’s new cabin than this one. Otherwise – this is pretty jaw dropping.
What do you think? How does Emirates New First compare?
