On one corner industry professionals are looking over Emirates’ new First Class Suite, and on the other corner they’re checking out Oman Air’s new First Class Mini Suite.

Arabian Travel Market is turning into a grand unveiling of new First Class product with both Emirates AND Oman Air putting theirs on display in 2018.

A few days after the Dubai-based carrier confirmed a model of its ground-breaking 777-300ER First Class Suite would be available at the tour event, Oman Air revealed it too would have a special set up of its own Boeing 787-9 First Class Mini Suite.
