Emirates has unveiled its new business class cabin and configuration onboard its Boeing 777-200LR aircraft - which sees the carrier removing the middle seat.
The revamped design uses a 2-2-2 seat configuration for the first time and comes as part of a $150 million refurbishment programme for its existing 777-200LR fleet.
The carrier’s business class seats, which follow the same model as its latest lie-flat seats, are now two inches wider, boast a pitch of 72 inches and move into a fully flat sleeping position.
Overhead bins in the centre of the cabin have also been removed
Business class onboard Emirates’ 777-200LR fleet now features a social area “mini lounge” offering snacks and beverages for customers to help themselves to during the flight.
Emirates’ refurbished 777-200LR aircraft will go into service from tomorrow (March 6) on services to Fort Lauderdale.
The aircraft used on the route is the first of 10 to be retrofitted with the new configuration over the course of the year.
Destinations to be served by the revamped aircraft will include the Chilean capital of Santiago.
