Mercedes team up with Emirates for S-Class flying experience
Mercedes have a proven track record making great cars. But as good as they are, they don’t fly. As far as we know.
The German car maker have decided to address this shortcoming by teaming up with Emirates, to create the S-Class suite on board their 777 fleet. Inspired by the luxury four-wheeled cars, the S-Class suites offer passengers with a bit of dough to spend the very epitome of first-class flying. The suites feature all sorts of features, high quality materials, ambient lighting and ‘virtual windows’ a function borrowed from NASA that apparently give a sense of weightlessness.
Emirates have said that from December 2017, all first class passengers will be offered a door to door transfer (in a Mercedes S-Class of course) to and from Dubai airport.
The co-operation is set to last for three years and who knows? By the time it comes to an end, they might even have cracked the flying car…
