  • Luxury and Comfort: Emirates Unveils Design of New First Class Cabin (Photos)

Emirates says its 787-10s will operate a mix of two- and three-class configurations, seating "between 240 and 330 passengers", and the airline has the right to switch the order to the smaller 787-9 variant.

For those positioned in the middle aisle, a window view is still possible thanks to "virtual windows" which are live streamed from cameras stationed externally.

"We are excited that Emirates has selected the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner to power its fleet expansion and future growth", Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Kevin McAllister said.

The "zero-gravity" position inspired by NASA technology, giving a feeling of relaxation and weightlessness.

Emirates is the largest customer for the A380, and took delivery of its 100th aircraft earlier this month.

At the 2017 Dubai Air Show, Emirates revealed the new Boeing 777-300ERs with first class suites estimated to cost over $9000.

First class passengers can dine on gourmet cuisine and enjoy exclusive wines, Champagnes, and spirits at any points during the flight.

"Aside from our new fully enclosed private suites, Business Class features our latest fully-flat leather seats with personal minibars, Economy Class seats have adjustable full leather headrests, and the in-flight entertainment system has been upgraded for all cabin classes".

FlyDubai at the show unveiled new lie-flat seats to attract business fliers accustomed to the opulent perks found on Emirates.

All cabins now feature newly-designed seats and upgraded in-flight entertainment systems, including "ultra-wide viewing angles", a touch screen, an LED backlight, and HD display.

"It gives us far more in our arsenal to deal with the type segmentation of demand that we're looking at in the next decade", said Clark.

The new Emirates 777 First Class cabin interior uses a whole new colour palette of soft greys, cream and champagne, conveying a contemporary, open and airy feel, with quiet and timeless luxury.

The new cabins will first launch on Emirates' Boeing 777-300 fleet on routes from Dubai to Brussels and Geneva, before being added to routes like Perth and Brisbane.
