Emirates will trim the number of first class suites from eight down to six and adopt a 1-1-1 layout for the luxe cribs, compared to today's 1-2-1 configuration.
The fewer-but-larger suites will be unveiled in early November at the Dubai Air Show and debut on a Boeing 777-300ER.
"What our customers will see on Emirates' new 777s starting from November will be a much bigger revamp that takes our onboard experience to the next level," teases Emirates president Sir Tim Clark.
The seating chart shows how the new suites will appear on Emirates' website when passengers book their first class ride...
... although this oddball layout will undoubtedly make more sense once the cabin is properly revealed.
The Gulf powerhouse has already offered several hints at what the suites will look like, with Clark previously referencing "a private bedroom on a luxury yacht" – the same design ethos applied to Emirates' new A380 inflight bar (below).
We're expecting the suites – which will be larger than their modern counterparts – will likewise swap today's dark palette of brown faux 'burled walnut' and brass trim for a light contemporary colour scheme of ivory and (appropriately) champagne, with subtle metal and woodgrain accents.
Emirates has also spoken of the new suites as being similar to a "private railway cabin", which harkens back to a different era of luxury travel but still has relevance today.
Singapore Airlines is also treading the fewer-but-bigger path for its new-look Airbus A380 first class suites, which will see six of the suites rather than today's 12, as well as having first class relocated onto the upper deck of the new superjumbo fleet.
