More of Emirates' latest First Class Suites will ply the Singapore - Dubai route for the next two months, with plenty of award seats on offer this time

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last two years, you’ll no doubt have seen or heard of Emirates’ newest First Class product – the world’s first fully enclosed Suite installed on a passenger aircraft, measuring a generous 40 square feet.

With separate climate control, virtual windows in the middle seats, a video room service function and a luxury finish inspired by Mercedes-Benz, it’s one of the most sought-after experiences among luxury travel enthusiasts.

You’re probably also aware that this is still a relatively rare product. Only the airline’s nine newest Boeing 777-300ERs have it installed, less than 4% of the total fleet and 6% of the 777 fleet.

There’s still no sign of a retrofit programme in place, and though there were plans for 11 of these Suites to make their way onto the upper decks of the carrier’s Airbus A380s from 2020, replacing the current arrangement of 14 older Suites, it now looks unlikely that will happen.


The new Suites are flying to Singapore

Back in early June when Emirates announced it was returning to Singapore two weeks earlier than planned, we noticed that the airline was sending its newest Boeing 777-300ERs to the Lion City with these brand new First Class Suites installed for the last two weeks of June.

Better still, the airline then extended the use of the new product between Singapore and Dubai all the way through the month of July 2020, increasing services to twice daily.
