Emirates has announced the initial cities that will feature its latest Boeing 777 cabin interiors. The airline intends to deploy its upgraded B777s to Geneva, Tokyo Haneda, and Brussels, providing passengers with enhanced opportunities to enjoy the airline’s renowned Premium Economy class on these aircraft, and for the first time, Emirates’ innovative Business Class seats arranged in a new 1-2-1 configuration. Tickets for Emirates’ enhanced Boeing 777 flights to these cities are available for purchase starting today through emirates.com, the Emirates App, or travel agents.

Adnan Kazim, Emirates Airline’s Deputy President and Chief Commercial Officer, stated: “By integrating the newly retrofitted Boeing 777s into our fleet, we are seizing the chance to introduce our highly praised Premium Economy class to additional cities within our network that already utilize this aircraft type, along with offering more seating options across four classes.” He added: “Drawing inspiration from our flagship A380, the Boeing 777 with its updated interiors offers unparalleled comfort and modern design elements, including a new Business Class cabin that enhances privacy for our customers, complemented by thoughtful amenities that reinforce our commitment to exceptional service. Our dedication to providing the best products in every class ensures a consistent experience across both the Boeing 777s and A380s.”

The initial flights featuring the upgraded Emirates Boeing 777 will operate as follows: EK 83/84 to and from Geneva starting August 11, EK 312/313 to and from Tokyo Haneda starting September 1, and EK 183/184 to and from Brussels starting September 11. Beginning July 1, the first Boeing 777 will undergo a comprehensive cabin interior refurbishment, which will take about two weeks before the aircraft returns to service. This includes the renovation of the First Class cabin, the installation of 38 new Business Class seats in an updated 1-2-1 configuration, 24 new Premium Economy seats, and 256 Economy Class seats.

The newly refurbished Boeing 777’s Business Class seats prioritize individual privacy and comfort, converting into a flat bed with seats 20.7 inches wide and spaced up to 44 inches apart. The staggered seating arrangement ensures aisle access for every seat, with direct entry and exit. Each seat features a touch screen controller for in-flight entertainment and seat adjustments, a 23-inch HD personal screen connected to the award-winning ice entertainment system, a personal mini-bar, a large table, and ample storage for personal devices and charging outlets. The Business Class cabin will also include a small bar for quick access to snacks and refreshments during the flight.

Emirates plans to refurbish a total of 81 Boeing 777s as part of its retrofit program, with additional destinations to be announced in the coming months. The airline has allocated 191 aircraft for a complete overhaul, part of the industry’s largest known retrofit program, involving an investment of over US$3 billion to deliver superior products and customer experiences. Emirates currently operates its refurbished A380 aircraft with Premium Economy to various international destinations, and aims to serve over 36 cities with Premium Economy by February 2025, including new destinations with the introduction of the A350 in September this year.
