There are 8 Private Suites in First Class, and 42 Business Class seats per aircraft. The Business seats recline fully to become lie-flat beds that enhance the comfort for the Business traveller.

The cabins will be equipped with an on-demand passenger entertainment system that will provide passengers with up to 1,200 channels to choose from. Both audio and visual entertainment will be provided for passengers travelling from Dubai to Rio de Janeiro to enjoy throughout the flight.

Argentina’s Minster of Tourism, Carlos Enrique Meyer said: “Emirates’ plans to implement services from Dubai to Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro will play an important role in increasing tourism, trade and investment between Argentina, Brazil and the UAE, in addition to the airline’s vast global network.”
