B/E manufactures bespoke Super First Class suites for the very front-end compartment of Airbus A380, Boeing 777 and Boeing 747-8 widebodies. “So for example, in the Emirates front end, there’ll be small compartments which are, I would say, analogous or similar to train compartments. And you’ll have a compartment which has privacy doors which are electrically actuated, dining for two, a full bed, a little refrigerator, a TV screen, a place to hang your coat, et cetera, et cetera. It’s basically like a small compartment,” B/E Aerospace co-founder, executive chairman and CEO Amin Khoury said today at the JP Morgan Aviation, Transportation and Defense Conference.
Showing a photo of Emirates’ first class private suite to the audience, Khoury said: “So this is … an Emirates suite. So you can see there’s a full bed, there’s a little controller, a TV screen, accent lighting, there’s a little refrigerator which you can’t see in there, and this folds up to permit dining for two people. And those are very expensive. Those sell for $250,000 each.”
