Zach Honig, editor at “The Points Guy,” flew first class in Emirates’ new Boeing 777-300ER cabin. The aircraft, inspired by Mercedes-Benz, features six first class private suites. Each has floor-to-ceiling doors which are completely enclosed. Don’t worry if your suite is in the middle of the plane because virtual windows show video from exterior cameras, and you can watch the plane take off. Honig says he preferred the virtual windows to real ones.
You can control the temperature and lighting, and there’s a 32-inch touch-screen display for entertainment. You can order food via video chat, and minibars are stocked with gourmet snacks. NASA-inspired “zero gravity” seats recline completely. Honig spent $5,500 for a one-way ticket from Dubai to Brussels. Worth it?
