Flying in Emirates new first class suite is an absolute dream. The Dubai-based airliner has come out with its new Boeing 777 equipped with glorious first class suites designed in partnership with Mercedes-Benz, mimicking the upholstery and features of an S-Class sedan. Those who are willing to drop an estimated Rs 6 lakh for the plane ticket, will get up to 40-square-feet of space, floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that ensures complete privacy, gourmet dining, mood lighting, seats that convert into lie-flat beds and come with sliding privacy doors, and a super-wide 32-inch full HD LCD TV (which according to Emirates is the largest widescreen digital touch TV in the world on any aircraft). Moreover, you also get the option of custom-controlled climate change that allows passengers to adjust the cabin’s temperature to 18 to 26 degrees Celsius / 64 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit.
The private rooms feature NASA-inspired “zero-gravity” seats, virtual windows, and active noise cancelling E1 headphones from Bowers and Wilkins developed exclusively for Emirates. Fliers will get rooms fitted with a pair of Safari binoculars, an entertainment system featuring 2,500 channels and wireless remote. Sounds nice!
A star feature on the suite are virtual windows that otherwise are windowless cabin suites, and project a high-definition view of the outside using real-time cameras mounted on the plane. The palatial plane also offer NASA-inspired zero-gravity seat that has a “buttery-soft” leather and a lounging position, which the airliner says removes any pressure from the elbows, back, and neck in order to achieve maximum comfort. The “zero-gravity” position gives a weightless feeling.
There are a total of six suites on the new Boeing 777, all equipped with service windows for on-demand fine dining and beverage options, and a video call function where passengers can, more politely, request room service.
Care packages for first class flyers include Emirates’ Hydra Active moisturizing pajamas, Bulgari amenity kits, and Byredo skin care products.
And finally, all first class passengers will be chauffeured to and from airports in Mercedes-Benz S-Class cars.

Well, by all standards the suites are a “hotel in the sky” and certainly one expensive, over-the-top luxurious way to travel.
YouTube star Casey Neistat has trialled Emirates’ new First Class suites and declared them, “The greatest ever aeroplane seat.”
