On his way back from Dubai Rob managed to book the Emirates First Class Suite on board the Boeing 777-300ER using miles.
The Boeing 777-300ER, of which Emirates has 138, is the only place you will find the new First Class Suite – but only on nine of them. If you want to try this seat, you’ll need to track it down.
Weirdly, Emirates is mixing their best First Class product with an inferior Business Class product. Whilst fully flat, the 2-3-2 layout in Business Class means there is a middle seat in the middle block.
This is really not appealing, and for the solo traveller I didn’t find any of the seats attractive. It is not a herringbone layout, so you are sat directly next to your seat mate. Compare this to the Air France Boeing 777-300ER I flew down on, which is 1-2-1 in Business Class and where, even if you are in the middle pair, your head is about four feet away from that of your neighbour.
