The "zero-gravity" position inspired by NASA technology, giving a feeling of relaxation and weightlessness.

Emirates released images of its new first class suite at the Dubai Airshow, complete with large beds, dining spaces, and virtual windows. Airbus now has a backlog of 100 A380s remaining to be delivered, 42 of which are for Emirates.

Each suite has a "service window" where customers can be served food and drink "undisturbed", while a video call function allows passengers to communicate with the cabin crew or request room service.

With floor to ceiling sliding doors, each "suite" has 40 square feet of personal space. "The engines are spec'd at 70-72 [thousand pounds thrust], but the conditions we're getting [operating from Dubai means] it can't take the payload", said Clark in 2014.

"Aside from our new fully enclosed private suites, Business Class features our latest fully-flat leather seats with personal minibars, Economy Class seats have adjustable full leather headrests, and the in-flight entertainment system has been upgraded for all cabin classes".

The new Emirates suite is actually inspired by Mercedes-Benz and its iconic S-Class luxury sedan, the airline said.

He went on to show a transcript of a Trump speech about Iran as a disembodied voice expressionlessly read the text. Hanks said, as dramatic music played in the background while he awaited the answer from a mysterious figure.

"This is the first time an Emirates product has been so influenced by another luxury brand, but it is a natural fit", Clark said.

The fully enclosed private suites. All parts of the plane have had a multimillion-dollar upgrade.

In addition to the new first class suite, the 777's business and economy class cabins will also receive brand new seats and in-flight entertainment systems.

Passengers would see more modern and airy cabins, Clark said.

The latest Emirates 777 aircraft with these new features will enter commercial service on 1 December, making its debut on flights to Geneva and Brussels. Instead, the aircraft will likely be deployed on new and existing shorter regional flights that don't need the range or enormous capacity of the Boeing 777 and double-deck A380, for which Emirates is the largest operator of both planes.

The phase of slow growth for Emirates comes after a blistering expansion that has added 100 A380s and 109 777s to its fleet over the last decade.
