Emirates has unveiled details of its A380 Premium Economy cabin, which offers 56 seats in a 2-4-2 cabin layout.
With a pitch of up to 40-inches, Emirates’ premium economy seat is 19.5 inches wide, and reclines eight inches into a cradle position. Covered in cream-coloured anti-stain leather with stitching details and a wood panel finishing similar to its Business Class, each seat is designed to provide comfort and support with six-way adjustable headrests, calf rests and footrests.
Each seat has a 13.3” screen, and passengers will find thoughtful touches including easily accessible in-seat charging points, a wide dining table and side cocktail table.
Sir Tim Clark, president, Emirates Airline, said: “Our Premium Economy product was carefully developed in keeping with Emirates’ brand positioning as a full-service airline of the highest quality. Our First, Business and Economy experiences reset industry standards when they were introduced, and we are confident that our Premium Economy will also make its mark as a distinct premium offering.”
Elsewhere on this latest Emirates A380, the 14 First private suites have been enhanced from the original suites, being slightly wider with taller doors, for even more privacy and comfort.
Emirates has retained its A380 Business Class seats which offer direct aisle access for every passenger, reclines to a fully-flat position, and offers personal mini bars, ample personal storage and a high degree of privacy.
All 76 seats have been refreshed to feature champagne-coloured leather covers and wood finishing, inspired by executive jets. The same classic colour scheme has also been applied to the Onboard Lounge at the back of the upper deck, for the exclusive use of First and Business passengers.
Emirates has also replaced all 338 Economy seats onboard its newest A380 with ergonomically designed seats that come with full leather headrests and flexible side panels which can be adjusted vertically for optimum support.
