Business Class on Emirates

biz_emirates1Looking over what’s offered in First Class on Emirates, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that Business Class on Emirates is also highly-rated and plenty luxurious. As is the case in First Class, each Business Class seat has the capacity to serve as something of a cocoon – with retractable privacy walls and all kinds of creature comforts – so although the seats aren’t as large as they are in First Class you’re likely to be quite comfortable, indeed.

The configurations of the Business Class cabins on Emirates will vary depending on the aircraft, so keep in mind that the information listed below about what you can expect when flying Business Class on Emirates is for the most updated cabin arrangements on planes like the Airbus A380.
