Emirates Boeing 777 (outdated) First Class Male to Dubai


Wednesday newsletters at all times function a lodge or flight overview.

I not too long ago loved an AMAZING vacation within the Maldives. You may learn my journey stories right here:


At present: Emirates Boeing 777-300ER (outdated) First Class Male to Dubai 

Final March, I flew First Class with Emirates in a Boeing 777-300ER from Velana Worldwide Airport within the Maldives (MLE) to Dubai (DXB). The privateness of the suite (with sliding doorways), wonderful bedding, top-notch facilities, and impeccable onboard service made for an outstanding flight expertise.  I solely wished the flight would have lasted a bit longer, since 4 hours – the flight time between the Maldives and Dubai – will not be sufficient time to be fully submerged in Emirates’ First Class luxurious. The (outdated) First Class product of Emirates (which I overview right here) nonetheless lives as much as its status, though it undoubtedly pales compared to Emirates’ latest First Class cabin, the best aviation expertise you possibly can have as a passenger (which I’ll overview subsequent week).

1. LOUNGE

Velana Worldwide Airport is sort of small and has just one Enterprise Class lounge, situated one ground above the principle concourse. Referred to as Leeli Lounge, the contract lounge is utilized by all airways, together with Emirates. The lounge is actually one giant room, with loads of seating areas, a few of them outfitted with in-seat energy retailers. The lounge is sort of darkish (there isn’t a lot daylight) and the decor is quite unappealing, which is disappointing in a rustic that revolves round luxurious journey. A buffet space with some eating tables is situated shut the lounge entrance and presents a number of worldwide meals, together with sandwiches, pastries, fruits, yoghurt, and a few sizzling dishes. No alcohol is served contained in the lounge as a result of the Maldives is an Islamic nation. Complimentary high-speed WiFi is obtainable to all lounge visitors.

2. EMIRATES BOEING 777 FLEET

Emirates operates the world’s largest fleet of Boeing 777 plane. The Dubai primarily based provider has 134 Boeing 777 in its fleet, consisting primarily of the Boeuing 777-300ER. The provider flies these fashionable plane to just about 100 cities on six continents, carrying hundreds of thousands of passengers throughout the globe every year. The provider plans to start out phasing out older first technology “basic” 777s (777-200ER, 777-300) in favour of the brand new Boeing 777X.

3. FIRST CLASS CABIN

Emirates’ Boeing 777 First Class cabin is situated within the nostril part of the airplane. The cabin options 8 enclosed suites in a 1-2-1 configuration, all of them having direct aisle entry after all. The 4 suites alongside the home windows and the 4 center suites are unfold throughout two rows. All suites take pleasure in full privateness, as not one of the rows fairly line up, so no one is instantly wanting into the suite throughout the aisle, even when the sliding doorways of the suites are left open. The First Class suites on the facet are perfect for solo vacationers (with a 3 home windows per seat), whereas the 2 pairs of suites within the center are excellent for journey companions since dividers between these suites will be raised or lowered to offer a sense of additional spaciousness.

Emirates’ (outdated) First Class cabin includes a luxurious and considerably kitschy decor.  An abundance of walnut veneer, gold trim and pearlized plastic frames the suites, doorways, seats and home windows, which doesn’t fully suite my style (I choose the extra minimalist and up to date design of Emirates’ newer First Class cabin, which I’ll overview subsequent week).

4. FIRST CLASS SUITES (+ BEST & WORST SUITES)

Emirates’ First Class suite is a totally enclosed area: there are two sliding doorways connecting the suite to the aisle, which will be closed to create a very non-public area. The ergonomic seat, which has a width of 23 inch (58 cm), may be very snug, and  its varied positions in addition to built-in therapeutic massage techniques are managed through a pill on the facet in addition to a small panel within the armrest.

In entrance of the seat is a gold framed, 32 inch (81 cm) video display, the biggest of its variety within the skies, with a desk under. The latter includes a fold-away mirror with self-importance equipment, in addition to a drawer containing a writing equipment. Upon boarding, the crew additionally places a basket with a number of snacks (e.g. nuts, candies, and so on …) on the desk; the basket is eliminated although throughout takeoff and touchdown. Below the desk is a big area, which can be utilized to stow away private belongings, because the First Class suite lacks overhead bins nor does it have giant storage compartments

One facet of the seat includes a minibar with mushy drinks and juices (on room temperature). It’s extra a elaborate ornament to impress passengers than a purposeful amenity, as you possibly can order no matter (cooled) drink you need through the flight. Subsequent to the minibar is a pill to manage the seat actions and the inflight leisure system (extra on that later) in addition to a storage field for smaller gadgets (e.g. glasses, pockets or cellphone).

On the push of a button, the seat mechanically reclines right into a fully-flat mattress of 86 inches (218 cm) lengthy, with absolutely retractable armrest. Turndown service is offered by the crew, who put a mattress, fluffy pillow and mushy quilt on the seat, guaranteeing impeccable sleep consolation.

6. MEALS

One meal service (breakfast) was served on this 4 hour morning flight. Breakfast began with contemporary fruits and a blearn choice, which included paratha, pav, brown roll, Danish pastry, muffin and croissant. As a main breakfast course, I had the waffles served with berry compote. Sadly, the waffles didn’t style very properly nor did I discovered the dish to be properly introduced. I suppose I select the flawed possibility from the menu (the opposite meals regarded a lot better), however I used to be not very hungry anyway.

7. ENTERTAINMENT

Emirates leisure system, known as ICE (data, communications, leisure) is one of the best within the trade, albeit a bit overwhelming if you find yourself utilizing it for the primary time. You might have three choices on the best way to management the system: touching the display (problematic given the seat pitch), utilizing a small wired distant, or utilizing a touch-screen monitor that’s in regards to the measurement of a small pill.

ICE has an in depth vary of new-release and basic movies, tv exhibits, field units and audio choices to select from. You may select from as much as 1,800 channels of the newest and best motion pictures and must-see TV exhibits, on demand and in a number of languages. You can too chill out to music from all over the world or play a spread of enjoyable video games. There’s even satellite tv for pc TV on provide (CNN, BBC World, and Sport 24).

My favourite ICE function is the surface digicam that you may entry in your display. Emirates’ B777s are outfitted with two cameras: one dealing with ahead and as soon as dealing with straight down (no tail digicam like on the A380). When not in a window seat, it may be good to observe the plane’s takeoff through the cameras.

9. OTHER INFLIGHT EXPERIENCES

# CREW

I’m enormous fan of Emirates’ multi-national cabin crew and it was not completely different on this flight. The purser, a superfriendly girl from India, personally welcomed me onboard, escorted me to my suite, and made positive I used to be sorted very properly through the flight. Service was top-notch and the crew had been all smiles. Throughout the flight, I realized that the crew flew in with the in a single day flight from Dubai, so that they had not slept and there was no layover within the Maldives for them (aside from the pilots).

# LAVATORY

There are two decently sized toilets for Enterprise Class passengers within the galley between the two Enterprise Class cabins. All toilets had been saved very clear through the flight.
