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

    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

    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.

    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.
