Emirates Boeing 777-300ER: A Full Cabin Tour – Simple Flying


Simple Flying recently got a chance to tour an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER. The Boeing 777-300ER has been the workhorse of the Emirates fleet for well over a decade, alongside the Airbus A380. The Emirates Boeing 777-300ER has a range of 7,888 nautical miles, and the aircraft type has flown over 298 million passengers since its introduction.

The triple seven has been prevalent with Emirates during the pandemic, and most of the airlines 150 Boeing 777-300ER’s have remained active, whilst the majority of its A380 fleet has been parked.

The particular plane I toured had a three-class configuration:

  • First class: Eight suites
  • Business class: 42 angle flat seats
  • Economy class: 310 seats

Let us take you on a tour of the 360 seat passenger plane!

First class cabin

We will start up front, with Emirates’ most premium seats. Flying in Emirates’ first class can set you back anywhere from $2,000-$10,000, depending on the route. For this, you get the best—a suite with doors, incredible service, fine dining, and an impeccable on the ground experience.

On this particular Boeing 777-300ER, we saw an older version of the first class suite. On their Boeing 777LR’s, Emirates now offers fully enclosed suites, complete with virtual windows!

Cabin fact file: 

  • Eight suites in total on the plane.
  • Seat pitch: 69 inches (fully lie flat).
  • Seat width: 20.5 inches.
  • Fun fact: The seat has a minibar in the armrest!

The cabin is configured in a 1-2-1 configuration, so everyone gets direct aisle access. An aerial view of the suite shows everything you get. Panoramic views out of three windows, a minibar in the armrest, a duvet, mattress and pillow, a vanity mirror, large TV, and lamp.

The suite has a door that adds a huge amount of privacy.

Emirates is known for having showers onboard its planes. The shower spa facilities for first class passengers are only on the Airbus A380. Luckily, if you are flying with Emirates, there is a chance you will be connecting in Dubai, which will increase your chances of potentially flying on an Airbus A380.

Business class cabin

Cabin fact file: 

  • 42 seats in total on the plane.
  • Seat pitch: 60 inches (angle flat seat).
  • Seat width: 20.5 inches.

As you walk further back into the plane, you enter the world of business class. The cabin is configured in a 2-3-2 configuration; this means not everyone gets direct aisle access.

The seats come complete with a reading light, mini control tablet, a pillow and blanket. Mattresses can also be given upon request.

Window seats are certainly the most private in this cabin.

Economy class

Cabin fact file: 

  • 310 seats in total on the plane.
  • Seat pitch: 32 inches.
  • Seat width: 17 inches.

Finally, the back half of the plane is dedicated to the economy class cabin. Seats here are configured in a 3-4-3 configuration.

The seats come complete with Emirates’ ICE entertainment system, with thousands of hours of on-demand content. The seats also all come with a cup holder and separate tray tables.

The cabin feels wide and airy, with large overhead bins.

The emergency exit seats have a crazy amount of legroom in economy class, but they are missing a window.

Overall

Overall, the Emirates 777-300ER is a very comfortable plane to fly on, and we can’t wait to see what the airline’s future fleet brings in terms of passenger experience. Emirates has a total of 126 Boeing 777X on order, and these planes will replace a lot of these 777-300ER’s.
