At 78 inches long (around 198 cm), the design of the flight seats in the Emirates Business Class was inspired by the interior of a modern sports car. When it is time to rest, passengers can recline their seat into a fully flat 180-degree position and drift off to sleep while staying connected, thanks to the free WiFi connection. Every seat is equipped with a personal mini-bar and in-seat power, not to mention the 23-inch entertainment screen. There is even an HDMI port to stream content from the passengers’ personal devices directly onto the screen. Moreover, Business Class passengers traveling on an overnight long-haul flight will also receive a complimentary kit bag featuring Bulgari’s new signature fragrance and skincare essentials.
Prior to departure, Emirates will serve a beverage to each passenger in the Business Class. Then, the passengers can choose from Emirates’s menu of regionally inspired gourmet dishes and enjoy a premium dining experience.
