Emirates reveals first destinations to be served with refurbished B777 fleet


Emirates has revealed the first destinations to be served by its refurbished B777 fleet. 

From July 1, 2024, the first Emirates Boeing 777 will undergo its nose-to-tail cabin interior retrofitting. According to the airline, the whole process will take approximately two weeks before the aircraft goes back into service. 

Plans include the refurbishment of the first class cabin, the installation of 38 new business class seats in an updated 1-2-1 seating configuration, in addition to 24 of the latest premium economy seats, along with 256 economy class seats.

The refurbished Emirates B777 aircraft will operate on the following services from Dubai International Airport (DXB):

·       EK 83/84 to and from Geneva Airport (GVA) from August 11, 2024

·       EK 312/313 to and from Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND) from September 1, 2024

·       EK 183/184 to and from Brussels Airport (BRU) from September 11, 2024

All business class seats on the newly refurbished Boeing 777 will focus on privacy and convert to a flatbed, with 20.7 inch wide seats, pitched up to 44 inches apart. The staggered seating arrangement ensures aisle access for every seat, with direct entry and exit for customers. 

Emirates said a total of 81 Boeing 777s will be refurbished as part of its investment in its retrofit program and more destinations will be announced over the course of the next few months. 

The airline has earmarked 191 aircraft for a full revamp as part of the largest known retrofit program in the industry with an investment of more than US$3 billion.

“With the addition of the newly retrofitted Boeing 777s to our fleet, we’re capturing the opportunity to introduce our highly acclaimed products like Premium Economy to more cities already served by this aircraft type in our network, in addition to more seating variety in four classes,” Adnan Kazim, Emirates Deputy President and Chief Commercial Officer said in a statement.

Kazim added: “Borrowing inspiration from our flagship A380 in every cabin, our Boeing 777 with revamped interiors boast the very best in customer comfort and will feature modern design details and signature cabin finishings, with a new Business Class cabin that provides more privacy for our customers, in addition to other thoughtful touches that underscore our exceptional value proposition. Our investment and intense focus on offering the best possible product across every cabin class also ensures we provide a consistent experience on both the Boeing 777s and A380s.”
