Is this the most extra way to fly?

A luxurious new way to fly has touched down courtesy of Emirates. Last month, the Dubai-based airline unveiled brand new cabins for its Boeing 777 fleet, and they’re truly in another class.

The First Class private suites are fully enclosed and offer up to 40 square feet of personal space, with floor to ceiling sliding doors, reclining “zero-gravity” seats, virtual HD windows, a pull-out dining table, integrated vanity, and a plethora of other high-end amenities.

Designed in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz, the sleek suites boast mood lighting, supple leather upholstery, and high-tech control panels—as well as a sophisticated color palette of gray, cream, and champagne. Passengers of the private suites also receive complimentary chauffeur services in a fleet of S-Class vehicles.

A 32-inch HD LCD TV screen with 2,500 channels of on-demand entertainment, noise-canceling headphones from Bowers & Wilkins, binoculars, plush pajamas and bedding, a full-height wardrobe for hanging clothes, discreet storage, and a full Byredo skincare kit await, while a service window and a video call option allow passengers to easily contact flight attendants.

For the majority of travelers who will never have the luxury of flying in a private suite, they can still enjoy a slew of upgrades, which are found across all cabin classes.
