Emirates Seating and Cabin Class
Emirates offers three classes of service including it’s famous Private Suites in First Class, flat bed seats in Business Class and economy class.
Economy Class Cabin
As with any economy product, the legroom can be a little tight, but Emirates does offer some very nice features in their economy class. All Emirates A380s and most of the Boeing 777s have Wi-Fi and in-seat power, so you can stay connected when you fly. You can even make calls to people on the ground, with their mobile phone and data roaming services (Qatar Airways has this as well).
All classes of Service on Emirates feature the Emirates award winning In Flight entertainment system – ICE (Information, Communication and Entertainment). ICE has over 2,500 channels of movies, TV shows, music and games, on demand and in multiple languages.
Business Class Cabin
Here is where things get a little different. The Emirates business class is a true luxury product with access to their On Board lounge (on the A380), a wide table beside you to get some work done, in seat power, ICE entertainment system, Lie Flat beds, a Bulgari amenity kit, etc….
However, the experience is not just while you are on the plane. You can also book Emirates complimentary Chauffeur-drive service where they will take you to and from the airport in more than 70 cities. Once you get to the airport you will have access to their business and first class lounge, with a full bar and wide selection of food.
Here is a review of the A380 Emirates business class via The Telegraph
First Class Cabin
For a really over-the-top experience, there is the Emirates first class suite of seating. Emirate First Class provides all the benefits of business class, such as the chauffeur service and lounge access (both in the terminal and on board the A380) plus and on board Shower Spa, your own private suite and unparalleled gourmet dining experience.
Here is Casey Neistat’s take on Emirates First Class….
Emirates On-Board Lounge and Bar
Emirates has a great on-board bar and lounge for passengers flying in first class and business class on their A380 planes. And in an effort to stay on top of the ultra luxury market, they have recently redesigned the look and feel of the lounge, taking inspiration from a private yacht cabin. Could flying get any better than this?
On-board bars are treat that the US Based airlines have decided to pass on, but the international carriers are going “all in” to differentiate and add another layer of luxury and exclusivity. The Middle East Carriers (Qatar, Etihad, and Emirates) are three hands down winner’s in this category, but Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Australia and Korean Air are taking a run at them with some pretty cool bars of their own.
