Compare: Emirates A380 Vs. Emirates 777 First Class

Emirates First Class is one of the best premium products out there for aviation enthusiasts. When it comes down to my favorite Emirates First Class, I would have to go with the Emirates A380 aircraft. The super-jumbo offers a luxury VIP experience that is unforgettable in terms of in-flight shower suites and lounge bar. However, I am pretty sure others may argue differently when it comes to which is better, Emirates First Class on Boeing 777 or on Airbus 380? 

Please note that this comparison is between Emirates A380 and the old 777-300ER, not the Emirates new 777-300ER

    Emirates 777 vs A380: First Class Cabin

    The Emirates Boeing triple 7s consists of just 8 first class seats, whereas the super-jumbo A380 has 14 first class seats. So the cabin on 777 aircraft indeed feel more spacious and less crowded. Moreover, First Class cabin on A380 is on the upper deck making the cabin more narrow than the 777. So clearly the winner here is 777 if you want a wider and roomier First Class cabin. 

    Emirates 777 vs A380: Frist Class Seat

    First Class seats on both Emirates 777 and A380 are very much the same in terms of the design and features. All First Class suites come with beautiful gold studded design and enclosed with a privacy door along with other amenities. However, the 777 seats are actually slightly wider making it more comfortable to sit in, relax and sleep. This is probably because of how spacious the First Class cabin on 777 is compared to the First Class cabin on A380.

    Emirates First Class A380 Shower

    Fun and memorable experience are what great about the Emirates First Class on the Airbus 380. The aircraft features two huge shower suites and they are simply beautiful. In fact, did you know there's a dedicated flight attendant that's his/her main job is to make sure those shower suites are clean and ready during your flight? I remember first time stepping into the lavatory on Emirates A380 First Class that is equipped with a shower suite, I was amazed about how big and beautiful it was. Etihad Airways A380 First Class Shower Suite can't compare. 

    After all, who can say that they shower on a plane at 40,000 feet above the ground? Emirates 777 unfortunately does not have a shower suite.

    Emirates A380 Lounge Bar

    Another fun feature on Emirates A380 is that it has a real lounge bar that's accessible by the First Class and Business Class passengers. I have not been on any other aircraft that the lounge bar can be compared to the Emirates A380's. I have been in Etihad A380's lounge, but it's not as cool as Emirates A380's lounge. 

    It's just a true unforgettable experience to just walk up to the bar, order a drink and then sit in the lounge to socialize with others without realizing that you are actually on the plane doing that. Emirates 777 is losing to Emirates A380 here because 777 does not have a lounge bar.

    Emirates 777 vs A380: Noise

    Emirates A380 is quieter and smoother to ride in. This makes the A380 aircraft the best candidate to experience all those over the top shower suites and lounge bar without realizing that you are actually on a plane. So comparing to the 777 aircraft, A380 aircraft offers a better and smoother ride. 

    Emirates 777 vs A380: Reviews

    If you are looking for more in dept reviews of each Emirates aircraft First Class, I have reviewed 777 twice and A380 once. All were long haul International flights that allowed enough time to really enjoy what each First Class aircraft had to offer. 


    There you have it! While Emirates 777 offers more spacious First Class cabin and wider seats for comfort in the suite, Emirates A380 First Class offers unique unforgettable experiences in terms of the shower suites and lounge bar at 40,000 feet above the ground. If Emirates A380 does not have those two things, then 777 would be my preferable choice to fly.
