Emirates unveils new business class seats


Emirates has unveiled a brand new business class cabin and configuration on its Boeing 777-200LR aircraft, with new wider seats laid out in a 2-2-2 configuration for the first time.

The newly refurbished Emirates 777-200LR aircraft is set in a two-class configuration and offers 38 business class seats and 264 seats in economy class.  

While the business class seats are in the same design and shape of Emirates’ latest lie-flat seats, they are now two inches wider.

The seats retain the champagne coloured finish and diamond stitch pattern on the full leather cover, and the ergonomically designed headrest revealed on Emirates’ newest Boeing 777 in November.

The business class seat has a pitch of 72 inches and moves into a fully flat sleeping position. 

It also has touchscreen controls for the seat and inflight entertainment system, several personal lighting options, privacy panels between seats, a shoe stowage area, footrest and a personal mini-bar.

In addition, the new business class cabin features a social area – unique to the Boeing 777-200LR fleet. Economy class seats onboard the 777-200LR have also been refreshed to the latest colour palette of soft greys and blues.

The seats come with full leather headrests that have flexible side panels and can also be adjusted vertically for optimum support.

Emirates’ newly refurbished 777-200LR aircraft will go into service on 6 March to Fort Lauderdale.
