  • Hey, it's Rachel, and we're at Dubai Airshow 2019.

  • This is Emirates' Boeing 777.

  • And what's most unique about the plane is its first-class section, which contains fully enclosed suites.

  • This cabin was voted world's best first class at the 2019 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards.

  • We're going to see just how luxurious it really is!

  • How are you, Miss Hosie?

  • Here's your suite for today's flight.

  • Thank you.

  • I've just sat down in my suite, and it feels very plush.

  • The seats are huge, plenty of room, and there's all this gorgeous cream leather, which is super soft.

  • Get a little cushion behind my back, which is lovely suede.

  • The focal point of the suite is this huge 32-inch screen, which is as big as you might have in your home, actually.

  • And either side of it, this selection of soft drinks, water, Pepsi, Coke, and you can help yourself to those.

  • They provide magazines if you were ever to get bored of all the many films on offer.

  • And there's a little basket of snacks.

  • This pops up to reveal a mirror, so you can fix your face if needs be.

  • And the airline provides a towelette, facial toning lotion, eye cream, pillow mist, and sleep oil, which I think is all very nice to help you feel fresh when you're flying.

  • And they even give you a little leather-bound notebook and pen.

  • Every first-class suite that is on the outside of the plane comes with a set of binoculars, and these are really heavy-duty, proper binoculars.

  • And you do want to get a closer look at some of that landscape, so this is really handy.

  • One particularly interesting feature of this suite is the fact that there is a full-blown wardrobe complete with hangers.

  • So if you're traveling with a nice dress, suit, coat and want to hang it up so it doesn't get creased during your flight, you can, which is pretty handy.

  • There is an incredibly generous amount of legroom.

  • You could have the longest legs in the world and probably still not reach the end.

  • The first-class suites also have what's called a zero-gravity position for the chair, which has been designed to help improve circulation when you're flying.

  • Another great feature on board is call or video call that customers can use to place their order from the privacy of their suites.

  • So they can contact us from the thirteen-inches tablet they have available there in their suites.

  • And the crew will just provide the order straightaway.

  • When it comes to food, the first-class passengers can dine whenever they want.

  • They get a choice of five appetizers, including a salad bar, five mains, and five desserts, including fresh fruit and cheese.

  • This is the Arabic mezze, which is just one appetizer.

  • This whole thing is one appetizer.

  • And they really think about all the tiny touches, like the olive oil and the balsamic being laid out and the salt and pepper the same way.

  • So the light is on the left, and the darker is on the right.

  • And there's so many different breads.

  • So, now it's time to check out what the suites look like when they're made up into a bed.

  • All the first-class passengers are given a pair of fluffy slippers, an eye mask, and even a set of pajamas, which are not just soft but are actually designed to keep your body at the right temperature and keep you hydrated.

  • Passengers are also given an amenity kit, which is all full of toiletries by Bulgari, whatever you might want.

  • And there's one for women and one for men.

  • As this is a suite in the middle of the plane, it also has virtual windows.

  • So, these are not real windows, but they're showing what the cameras are filming outside.

  • So it's exactly like you have a window seat.

  • I am exceptionally comfortable.

  • Time to put the blinds down on the fake windows.

  • Having looked around the suites, it's clear that they are really special.

  • Particularly because you can completely seal yourself off from everyone else.

  • If you're traveling with a partner, friends, or family, it's probably not ideal.

  • But at the same time, it's incredibly luxurious, and if you've got the money to spend, why not?

  • Good night.

Hey, it's Rachel, and we're at Dubai Airshow 2019.
