In pictures: Emirates’ long-awaited premium economy class


The Emirates Premium Economy Class cabin offers 56 seats (2-4-2) at a seat pitch of up to 40in. The seat is a customised version of the PL3530 from Recaro Aircraft Seating

Each seat has a 13.3in IFE screen, one of the largest in its class. Passengers can enjoy a wide selection of music, movies, live TV, news and other content via Emirates’ ‘ice’ infotainment system

Each seat is covered with cream-coloured anti-stain leather, with decorative details including a quilted finish

Comfort and convenience features include a spacious dining table, a side table for drinks, and easily accessible charging points for devices

Comfort and support features include an adjustable headrest with six modes, a leg rest and a foot rest

All 76 seats in Business Class on the latest Emirates A380 have been refurbished with champagne-coloured leather covers and wood finishes, similar to business class on the Emirates Boeing 777 ‘Game Changer’

The Emirates A380 cabins have been updated with new decorations and colours, including the staircase connecting the main deck with the upper floor

The decor of the unique Emirates A380 Shower Spa Bath has also been updated

The ‘air saloon’ at the rear of the Emirates A380 upper deck, for use by first-class and business passengers, was designed with AIM Altitude

Emirates has replaced all 338 economy class seats on its latest A380 with ergonomically designed seats. The seats feature leather headrests and flexible side panels that can be vertically adjusted for optimal support. The seat represents a step forward compared to those fitted on the Emirates Boeing 777 Game Changer, being lighter, without reducing comfort or function

Each of the new economy seats in the latest Emirates A380s features elegant wooden touches on the dining table, as well as a 13.3in seatback IFE display to enjoy the wide range of content on the ‘ice’ entertainment system
