Emirates is getting even more luxurious. The Gulf carrier just unveiled the new first-class cabins on its Boeing 777 fleet, and the results might make you wish you were stuck on this plane for an extended period of time.

Inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the private suites offer 40 square feet of personal space, with sliding doors that extend all the way up to the cabin ceiling.


The seats can be placed in a NASA technology-inspired zero-gravity position.

Inside, the suites have "mood lighting," 32-inch TVs, Bowers & Wilkins noise-canceling headphones, and seats that can recline to fully flat beds and a zero-gravity position "giving feeling of relaxation and weightlessness," according to the airline's press release.

The seats are organized in a 1-1-1 configuration, but even those in the middle seats get a view. For those seats Emirates added the industry's first "virtual windows," which project the view from outside the aircraft using real-time camera technology. Binoculars are provided for passengers with actual windows.


The doors go all the way from the floor to the ceiling.

There's a full-length wardrobe for hanging bags, and a video call function allows passengers to summon a flight attendant who can offer food and drinks through a service window that doesn't disturb passengers. (Each suite also includes a personal minibar.)

A first-class ticket also comes with a Bulgari amenity kit, Hydra Active moisturizing pajamas, and a Byredo skincare collection only available on Emirates.

The new first-class cabins, which are part of a multimillion-dollar upgrade across all cabins, will debut on flights from Dubai to Brussels and Geneva beginning December 1; tickets reportedly start at £7,000 or about $9,200. Emirates' announcement follows Singapore Airlines's unveiling of its new Airbus A380 suites, which also launch on December flights.
