Emirates Airlines unveils new first class cabins at Dubai Air Show
Emirates, the Middle East's largest air carrier, has unveiled new, state-of-the-art, first-class private suites
Emirates, the Middle East's largest air carrier, has unveiled new, state-of-the-art, first-class private suites. In an industry first, passenger suites in the middle aisle without windows will be fitted with "virtual windows" relaying the sky outside via fiber optic cameras on the plane.
There's also a video call feature in the suites that connects passengers to the cabin crew, as well as temperature control and various mood lighting settings. Emirates President Tim Clark unveiled the cabin today at the start of the biennial Dubai Airshow.
Clark declined to say how much a ticket in the 40 square-foot (3.7-square-meter) private suite will cost. The private suites will be available on the airline's Boeing 777.
