Showcasing their latest offering, Emirates airline shared a clip on Youtube showing how they can 'transform' a seat into a bed.
In the short clip, viewers are given a glimpse as to how the airline's First Class Private Suite seats become beds in just a matter of seconds. And since this is Emirates, it's safe to say that both seat and bed are extremely cozy.
The new First Class private suites - which the airline dubs as the "game changer" - was first unveiled at the Dubai Air Show held last year. The Mercedes Benz-inspired suites come with a wide array of smart technology and intelligent design to deliver function, luxury and comfort.

It also gained a 'Top Gear' seal of approval when motoring expert Jeremy Clarkson reviewed the suites. Commenting on Emirates' new fully enclosed First Class private suites, Clarkson said: "Seriously, these new seats on Emirates are better than half the hotels I ever stay in."

All suites offer a window view, as those positioned in the middle aisle are fitted with virtual windows that livestream views from external cameras. The suite also comes with a 32-inch full HD screen on which to enjoy the 2,500 channels of inflight entertainment choices that Emirates offers; a personal wardrobe and private stowage space for carry-on bags; soft lighting and temperature settings that can be customised at a touch of a button; and binoculars to make the most of spectacular window views, among other features. The luxurious soft leather seat reclines fully flat, can be placed in a "zero-gravity" position, or adjusted into dozens of other custom positions for optimal comfort.
The First Class private suites are available on Emirates' Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
