FlyDubai has just unveiled a new business class experience, which will be known as “The Business Suite.” This looks pretty awesome!Basics of FlyDubai’s new business class suiteMy thoughts on FlyDubai’s new business class suiteBottom lineBasics of FlyDubai’s new business class suiteFlyDubai has a new business class suite, which the airline will start to install on aircraft as of the fourth quarter of 2023. Specifically, it’s expected that the first plane will feature these seats by November 2023, and by the first quarter of 2024, six planes will have these cabins. The airline will prioritize putting this product on longer, premium routes.FlyDubai operates an all-Boeing 737 fleet, and has roughly 140 Boeing 737 MAXs on order, including the 737 MAX 8, 737 MAX 9, and 737 MAX 10.FlyDubai has a lot of Boeing 737 MAXs on order!This new business class suite is designed specifically for narrow body aircraft, and it’s expected that 10 of these seats will be installed on each plane. For the first time ever, FlyDubai will offer direct aisle access and doors at every business class seat.FlyDubai is the launch customer for this new seat, which is the Safran VUE product, designed specifically for narrow body jets. This new seat will have some cool features, like a 17-inch 4K built-in touchscreen, bluetooth audio, and ambient lighting.Below you can see the first pictures that FlyDubai has shared of this new product.New FlyDubai business class suiteNew FlyDubai business class suiteNew FlyDubai business class suiteNew FlyDubai business class suiteNew FlyDubai business class suiteNew FlyDubai business class suiteNew FlyDubai business class suiteMy thoughts on FlyDubai’s new business class suiteFlyDubai’s new business class product looks phenomenal, plain and simple. It’s great to see how the airline is evolving, and that narrow body business class products are starting to be as good as wide body business class products.One exciting thing about the new Safran VUE seat is that the ottoman in this configuration seems to be quite large, which is otherwise an issue in many of these types of business class seats. This looks as good as any reverse herringbone product out there.Next, I can’t help but point out just how many different business class products FlyDubai has introduced. The carrier’s focus is definitely innovation rather than fleet consistency, which I suppose is a good thing, assuming there aren’t many aircraft swaps, and that customers know what to expect.Historically FlyDubai’s business class has just consisted of pretty standard recliner seats. This is similar to what you might find in first class within the United States, except with a bit more legroom.FlyDubai’s old 737 business class seatThen in 2017, when FlyDubai took delivery of its first Boeing 737 MAX, the airline introduced a new business class, which represented a huge improvement for the airline. The airline started installing fully flat business class seats, in a staggered configuration. The cabin has a total of 10 seats, with two rows being in a 2-2 configuration, and one row being in a 1-1 configuration.FlyDubai’s new 737 MAX business class seatThen in 2021, FlyDubai introduced yet another new business class seat. Interestingly this wasn’t an improvement over the previous staggered configuration, but rather intended to be a replacement for the recliner seats that were previously found on regional flights. I’m intrigued by this product, but haven’t seen it in person yet.FlyDubai’s newest 737 MAX business class seatNow we’re seeing the airline introduce yet another new product, meaning FlyDubai will have four different business class products in service.The last thing I can’t help but mention is how much FlyDubai has innovated with its business class, while Emirates has the same old subpar business class product on its Boeing 777s, with no firm plans to innovate yet. Isn’t it about time that Emirates announce a new business class for planes other than the A380?Bottom lineFlyDubai has unveiled a new business class suite. This will be the first time that the airline has direct aisle access and doors on its Boeing 737s. Furthermore, FlyDubai is the launch customer for this kind of seat, and I imagine that this is a product we’ll see on many more airlines.This looks like a phenomenal new business class product. It’s just unusual that FlyDubai will have four different Boeing 737 business class products.What do you make of FlyDubai’s new business class suite?
