Emirates B777 NEW BUSINESS and ECONOMY CLASS

Emirates B777 NEW BUSINESS and ECONOMY CLASS


(upbeat music) – So this is Heath, the reindeer. Cosy for the whole flight. – [Sam] Hi, how are you doing? – Hi guys, so after my spectacular
new first class ride to Brussels on Emirates, the
next day I flew back to Dubai in their new business class. The new business class features
many upgraded amenities such as the fully flat
bed with a mini bar. I think this is the very
first video on YouTube to showcase the new business class. I’m gonna show you all
the details in the video. How are you? – I’m good, how are you? – [Sam] Good to see you. – I’m a big fan. – [Sam] Thank you. Is this your first time
flying the new business class? – First time with Emirates, first time in the new
business class in the back. Tomorrow we’re in the first class. – [Sam] Congratulations. – Thank you. – [Sam] You’re gonna have a great flight. – I can’t wait. (upbeat music) – [Sam] This video is quite different from my other videos. It is not only going to
focus on business class. I recognise many of the audience here also fly in the economy. So follow me. I’m going to check out
the new economy product during my flights. (upbeat music) – Guys, this is my purser Ahmed. He was with my on the way to Brussels. Now he’s coming back with me. – Yeah, I’m very lucky. – You know yesterday, I freaked out. After landing, I just
realised I lost my GoPro. He managed to find it. So it was such a relief. I was devastated for an
hour in the hotel room. It was such a relief. – Thank you so much. – This is an Emirates family. Let me kiss you. – Thank you so much. – [Sam] It’s good to see you again Chris. – Hello, Sam. Welcome back. – [Sam] Good to see you. – Yeah. – [Sam] Very, very happy you are taking us back home to Dubai today. – It was a short stay in
Brussels and now we’re back. – [Sam] This is also a 300 hours old 777. – [Chris] Yeah, this is pretty
much also a new (mumbles) so pretty new. I don’t know how many
hours this (mumbles). This one’s got a bit more. It’s about two months or 700 hours. We’re departing Brussels. We’ll reach 15 (mumbles)
not too far behind. We can see on the navigational display, we will depart off of on 2.5 right. And we’ll zoom out a bit and we’re gonna follow this dotted line
1700 feet left turn and we will follow this
all the way to Dubai. – [Sam] Awesome. – [Chris] Flight time today is six hours, a bit shorter than yesterday. I think there’s some tail winds. And initially we’re going to
be climbing up to 35,000 feet. – [Sam] OK, because today
I’m not in first class. Could you make it faster today? – Ah, yes, so you’re flying in business. It’ll be 30 minutes less than yesterday. – [Sam] Awesome, awesome. – As well as technical information, we’ve got just over 53 tonnes on board. And that’s the fuel we
have on board today. It’s a particular type of
weight up around 275 tonnes. – [Sam] What is this thing you’re actually holding on your hand? – This is the steering tiller, Sam. So this is what we use to taxi
the aeroplane on the ground. This tiller moves the nose field. So this is what we use on the
ground to turn the aeroplane. It turns the nose field and it turns the aeroplane on the ground. It’s like the steering wheel. – [Sam] It’s like a
steering wheel in a car. What’s this bigger screen
here in the middle? I was always wondering what that was. – [Chris] This is the lower MFD. This is also used to display
various system pages, which we select here. If I select the electric page,
it’ll show the electrical. – [Sam] Oh, it’ll show the electrical. – [Chris] If I push the
hydraulic page, it’ll show the hydraulics are all pressurised now. It’ll show the hydraulic page. Fuel page. It shows we’ve got 26.7
tonnes roughly in here in each of the main tanks. And yeah, it shows the door page, basically almost ready to go. We just have the outer door open. (upbeat music) – [Sam] So what’s this little reindeer, this little moose here? – So this is Heath, the reindeer, and he’s just like a nice
soft little cuddly animal. – [Sam] Yep. – And then you open it up and
it is a cosy little blanket. – [Sam] Oh, it’s a blanket
when you open up the cover. – Yes. And it keeps you nice and
cosy for the whole flight. – Our configuration is three,
four, and three across, progressively after the aircraft. So the configuration changes. It’s two, four, and two. – [Sam] I know these are
actually one of the preferred for single travellers
because if you are in pairs, you prefer to sit together without another person right there. – Exactly. So we also have the new
armrest in the middle. They’re slimmer, so it creates a more
spacious feel in the seat. And they’re nice champagne colours. And actually, no two seat
covers are actually the same in the whole of the cabin. Which it makes it nice and unique. Our headrest is movable
and you can adjust it, so it’s nice and cosy if you’re sleeping. Here are our award-winning
I.C.E. entertainment systems. So here this a 13.3 inch screen, which is the largest one
we’ve had in economy, and we’ve removed the handset
that was usually here. – [Sam] I can see everything is, the buttons and everything,
is on the screen back and there’s nothing more
in between the seats. I like the headrest comes
up all the way to my height. The room is pretty good. I am a pretty big guy and I do have tonnes of room in front of me. (upbeat music) – [Sam] I think you are a
very lucky, lucky passenger. You know why I’m saying it? Because you have extra room here. Look at this. I can tell you will never
get hit by a trolley. Are you happy? Are you comfortable? – I’m very happy. – [Sam] Very happy. – I normally take this seat,
because I have a lot of room and I can store my luggage under it. – [Sam] I can see you are very honest. I can see. – [Captain] Captain speaking. My name is Chris Fondolua. I’d like to welcome you aboard
this brand new 777 300ER, shortly departing to Dubai. – While aboard a 777, I have
met Benjamin from France and he is a follower of mine
on the YouTube channel, right? – That’s right. – So Ben, you are sitting
in the new business class. So I want to hear your opinion about this. What do you think of the new 777? – Well, I did hope it was a new plane, but the seat I’m sitting
in now is very comfortable and I think the finishing
touches even around the seats are a bit more classy than the old ones and the screen is very bright. So, so far, so good. (upbeat music) – So I just met Jeb. He’s from the U.S. He’s actually a av geek just like me. He made a special trip just
to come to Brussels here to fly on the brand new 777 of Emirates in the new business class. So far this first impression
about business class, about the Emirates’ new business class. – Oh absolutely. Well, first of all,
getting to sit next to Sam, that’s pretty crazy as I’m
sure most of you acknowledge. – You’re too nice. – I’m also reflecting your fan base. So yeah, it’s been great so far. The crew are so welcoming. This is my first flight
actually with Emirates and I’m really excited to
see the rest of the trip. – Sam, would you like to
have a chilled apple juice or a freshly squeezed orange
juice or a glass of champagne? – [Sam] I think I’ll go
for a champagne today. – Sounds good. Please enjoy. – [Sam] Thank you so much. Well the privacy is awesome
in the window seats, guys. This is the preferred
seating business class. – Here’s your menu. – [Sam] Thank you very much. – Would you like to look at the wine list? – [Sam] OK. All the screens are very high definition, so you can always look
at the take-off view from the landing gear of the 777 camera. They’re a high definition view. (upbeat music) – So as you can see, it’s more
sitting like a bucket seat than a cradle seat. I can come forward a little bit if you want to have a conversation. So I’ve heard a lot of
nice comments so far from my fellow travellers. My instant feeling about
the new business class is that they’re really posh. They have the luxury finishing. However, there is a
middle seat in the middle and the seat does look very narrow. I’m just gonna show you guys. This is the digital menu, so I’m going to have the roasted duck. I’ll have the cod fillet. There you go. My order’s confirmed. How cool is that? The order is sent to the kitchen. This is called orange fizz. It’s my favourite drink onboard Emirates. This is a non-alcoholic mocktail. So, it is a simple mix of
orange juice and ginger ale. This tastes amazingly fresh. (upbeat music) Oh this is fun. You’re filming me, I’m filming you. – Thumbs up, Mouvance. – [Sam] You like fish? – [Jeb] I do. – [Sam] Enjoy your lunch. (upbeat music) – [Sam] Ah, this is the garlic bread. So the garlic bread is actually
coming out a warmer bag. A warmer bag means it’s actually coming from the oven, right? – [Cook] Yep. – [Sam] You warm it up in the oven. It’s very good. They’re preparing the bread basket. This is a wine chiller. Can you open and have a look? – [Attendant] Sure. – [Sam] OK, this is a wine chiller inside. – [Attendant] First we
heat the soup in here. – [Sam] Oh, you heat the
soup in the microwave. – [Attendant] Yeah, then we
put it back in the flask. – [Sam] This is sour cream? – [Attendant] Yeah. That’s chips. – [Sam] OK, so chips on top. – [Attendant] Yep. This is ready for the passenger. – [Sam] OK, go Jessica. – [Attendant] So that thing
is for the temperature of the food, and to make
sure that it’s well-cooked. – [Sam] So the stick is
checking the temperature? – [Attendant] Yeah. It should turn from black to red. – [Sam] So now it’s red. Red means it’s well-cooked? – [Attendant] Exactly. – [Sam] Ready to serve. – [Attendant] Yeah. (upbeat music) – [Sam] This fish is
different to the other fish. – [Attendant] It’s a special meal. – [Sam] It’s a special meal? – [Attendant] Yes. – [Sam] Ah, a special meal. Is that a seafood meal, or – [Attendant] It’s gluten-free. – [Sam] Gluten-free. (relaxing music) – [Sam] What are you having, Jeb? – The lamb. – [Sam] Lamb. Oh, the lamb rack. Economy class meals are being served. Tell me, what do we have for
dinner tonight in economy? – Dinner tonight, we have the
grilled chicken or the lamb. – [Sam] Grilled chicken or lamb. – Yes. – [Sam] Yummy. (relaxing music) – [Sam] So what are you doing here? – We are preparing our meals for now. We have chicken with mushroom sauce or we have braised beef. Which one would you like? – [Sam] OK, I’m gonna
try the braised beef. Guys, I’m gonna check out my meal. Oh look, it’s beautiful. This is the braised beef. And I think it’s potato salad, right? – [Attendant] Potato salad, yeah. – [Sam] Yummy. I always think the meals are
great in economy on Emirates. That’s where they do well
over their competitors. You get a full three-course meals. I just finished my meals. I ate everything except the vegetable. Despite some of the improvements, I still found the Boeing 777 quite noisy and dry for the skin. So overall, I still prefer the A380 if I fly in economy class. – [Attendant] Are you
listening to anything good? Some new music? – Here’s something I want to tell you. This one’s called Love in the Air, Love at First Flight. So it’s a string of love
songs that, you know. For example, I like these songs here. I’m a big sucker for love songs. I like this, Slave to Love, Bryan Ferry. You always have the maximum amount of fun. Say hello, guys, to the camera. Hey. This is where the fun is,
is in the rear galley. Come to the rear galley, guys. – Oh yeah. – This is Hadarli. She’s from Egypt and interesting. – Hi. – Egyptians interesting. – Oh my god. Thank you. So back in business class, the good thing is that the
fully flat bed is really long. Let me show you a little hint here. The arm rest can be lowered to create a little bit more room for you. Depends on where you sit, your privacy may be really amazing or you feel exposed in the aisle seat. In the middle, we know you have
to jump over your neighbour if you want to get out. I definitely recommend you
to reserve a window seat for the privacy. Overall, I think the new Emirates 777 features good improvement
over the old version. The two-three-two
seating in business class may not be everyone’s choice, but I was able to sleep fully flat, enjoy the good food, and an excellent
multinational crew service. This is the end of the flight. I just want to thank you for all the beautiful ladies with me. Without their help, my
filming wouldn’t be so smooth. So it’s very important that all my films get well-supported and
the love from the crew. Thank you very much again. – Thank you. (upbeat music) – [Sam] I hope you enjoyed my video and thank you for watching again.

  6. How many flights have you taken in your life

  7. 6:48 it's Ridley Scott!

  8. 13:13 the guy reaction

  9. The seats themselves look good but someone paying what they payed for to sit in a business class seat should get direct isle access regardless of seat.

  10. Good work. Sam, you have stepped up your videos. Once again great job.

  11. Jeb brooks has a inter veiw if any off you what to see what he says

  12. Honestly speaking, 2-3-2 seat configuration in NOT acceptable in business class.

  13. Can you show some videos of some places and hotels you visit when you get off the plane? Restaurants, hotels?

  14. This business class seat is rubbish. And I thought MAS was bad

  15. 13:14 who else saw the man in the back shake his head

  16. How do you know in advance if you have the new or old layout? It's really difficult to tell on the booking website?

  17. Sam chui has a lot of show off..

  18. Nonstop dan is better

  19. 2-3-2, what a mess! No thanks.

  20. I like your videos they are really good

  21. How do you Youtuber’s always find each other on every flight?! 😂

  22. These seats would be great for couples and they look amazing

  23. Okay just to be honest the only disadvantage about the Emirates 232 layout is that what if the person next to you is sleeping and you need to get up and use the bathroom like waking them up is not a good decision so like I mean you can like still crossed over the bed but like yeah

  24. GREAT VIDEO SAM I STILL THINK A380-800 ON LONG FLIGHTS WAY TO GO

  25. 2/3/2 is disapointing

  26. Woohoo south Africans represent ❤

  27. Sam is such a flirt 🙂

  28. I found this new business class to be the best premium economy available.

  29. I just love emirates A380 I just love u just travel in busseines or first class for all planes

  30. Not sure i like the double and triple seating configuration . How do you get out if you're in the window seat and the person next to you is sleeping? Same for the middle seat in the centre of the plane. I have travelled on the A380, much nicer configuration i feel….

  31. so funny to watch Sam basically have the run of these aircraft like they are his second home

  32. i am in love with emirates. flying this march from Brussels to Tokyo in a 777………………economy class

  33. The pilot really friendly, he explain something very well.

  34. Business seat is small….

  35. The 2-3-2 set up is a potential deal killer unless traveling in 3s.

  36. Sam I think u should start your own airlines… it would be fun

  37. Sounds like South African Pilot

  38. The pilot sounds south african

  39. Could you fly air India first class

  40. I like wathing Jeb and Sam do their flight reviews. Keep it up guys!

  41. Mr Sam can you please fly the Emirates economy class.

  42. Not kidding I was one of the first people to be on it before it was even announced

  43. 6:30 is some one watching black panther

  44. I love emirates and I want to become a pilot of emirates A380 my name is Zakaria

  45. Hi Sam. I am a big fan. I think in this review you are not really honest. This business class is not up to date. It might be posh and look nice, but you don't have enough space in this business class. Much too narrow and a middle seat … WTF? I flew this product lately and was not able to store my phone and other belongings correctly. There ist simply NO STORAGE SPACE in this business class. I also don't like the flight attendants using those Smartphones to order food. They look on the phone and not in your eyes. This business class is a step back and the reason why now I only fly Qatar when travelling towards Asia.

  46. does the 777 business class have massage feature? pls reply (the old one did)

  47. 7:46 from the u as

  48. Watched both of ur videos . 😊

  49. 아니 이코노미에서 스크린 크기 상태가…? A380보다 더 쩌네

  50. oh great its Douche Brooks..

  51. Prefer the Qsuite over this

  52. What happens to Emirates? 2-3-2 on first class? 3-4-3 on eco?

  53. Показываю, как можно выводuть раз в день до 90 долларов на свою карту. Посмотрите вuдео у меня канале

  54. Sam – "I recognize that some my viewers are flying economy class." Correction – All of your viewers are flying economy class,

  55. The new faux woodgrain and contrasting colours is so much better looking!

  56. i prefer b777 cause the staff are more friendly and i love the 232 seating

  57. A380 and only A380

  58. Mr Sam you should rather campaign against Emirates till the princess is reliesed or the world knows she is OK !!

  59. 13:10 the Asian is alrdy pissed

  60. I have a question sam how come in economy there was no vegetarian option

  61. Emirates is the worse airline ever and the customer service is the worse. They know how t make u feel rubbish. Complaints online what kinda rubbish is that.. u got to wait over a month just for a reply and when their reply comes all the say is sorry. Everyone whoever reads this stop flying with emirates. I flew with emirates for over 15 years and they don’t even care the mistake that was made by them they didn’t accept. I will make sure I go on social media and get this msg across to everyone @emirates

  62. 13.3 inch IFE I have had smaller in business

  63. I wonder if the upper class might be suffering from bad feet odor since I saw several pax opened up their shoes.

  64. Can you tell prices in future videos

  65. Actually 98% of us fly economy.

  66. What does the camera do in economy class seats

  67. Booked the right seats because of this video 🙂 Thank you!

  68. The Business Class at Emirates is above even the First Class of any other respectable airline. Lol

  69. I can see no difference between Emirates and Ryanair…

  70. Great video commentary

  71. I watched this because we are flying business next year on a emirates b777

  72. 7:45 lol he said "he's from the U-A*S"

  73. It’s like you know them since ur 4 I love how the cabin crew is amazingly nice and fun

  74. Ok Sam. What about a more objective analysis of your experiences in Emirates 777 ?
    First … 2-3-2 … it's a no no.
    Divider between the seats means that you have to move forward to speak to the person next to yo, and that is in the default position; it's a no no
    Then what's the point about having a drink cabinet at all, especially when they are not refrigerated. Anyone for a luke warm glass of sparkling water ?

  75. So excited to fly again with Emirates😊❤

  76. That egyptian lady wassup

  77. How do you get out from the window seat if the guy next to you is sleeping? 🤷🏽‍♂️
    1-2-1 is so much better in my opinion 👍🏽

  78. Must be nice to be a rich white asshole.

  79. When did Emirates have their 1st flight using the B777

  80. I personally wouldn’t fly in this business class format. When booking flights we always try to get only a380 flight which in my opinion is way better.

  81. The Landing Music is sooo nostalgic. I feel like I'm on a flight

  82. Ew yuk! Business class is in a 2/3/2 configuration might as well be in economy

  83. I am coming to Dubai on October 13 2019 can I get a like for a shaf trep

  84. Never fly arline that sam chui haven try because it is mean that is bad. Sam chui you always choose an good arline

  85. What a great video

  86. Helpful tips for everyone, Watch out for roaming charges on Aeromobile air system as it might be expensive for your phone provider, check the rates before you get on the airplane, if your inflight wait for a text message on your phone while keeping your cellular data off, when you get the message see if the rates are reasonable in your opinion, then turn on your cellular data and data roaming to use your phone, if the rates and not reasonable then turn off your cellular data and WiFi assist and put your phone in airplane mode.

    Make sure you have a roaming plan for international use, if not then turn off cellular data and WiFi assist as that can use data even if your cellular data is off because when your on a poor WiFi connection it will use cellular data and put your phone into airplane mode. Emergency number calls are free tho in most countries.

    Pro tip, in most cases the actual wall outlet will charge your phone faster then the USB port.

  87. 😍👍🏻👩🏼‍🦱🤴🏼👸🏻💏

  88. Your so friendly!! I wish i could meet you!! And im from maldives. Please come to maldives and try maldivian airlines. That day i would be very happy and please make a video about the review.

  89. Doesn't Emirates serve vegetarian food??

  90. Yay!! Jeb is on the same flight 🙂 Two of my favorite youtubers!!

  91. Emirates business class is more expensive than British airways or Singapore Airlines but the 2-3-2 layout means 40% of them have to barge on someone's privacy to move about. I thought you'd pay to have privacy? This is B.S! Not flying emirates business ever.
