Emirates has introduced a new A380, which has two classes “business” and “economy” while the third first class has been scrapped the spacious first class cabin and trimming 18 flat-bed seats from business class. Therefore, economy class is getting even bigger after Emirates reconfigured its new Airbus A380-800 planes to hold the most seats ever for an airliner. The Dubai-based luxury carrier has added 3 rows and 130 seats in economy. Already the world’s largest passenger plane, the new two-class A380 will hold a staggering 615 passengers in business and economy but travellers in so-called cattle class will not lose any legroom inside Emirates overhauled cabin. The luxury Gulf carrier has unveiled at the Dubai Airshow has two-class 557 seats in economy and 58 seats and a lounge in business carrying adequate passengers to rival the population of a small village. The company is targeting to meet the future needs, as Emirates' economy cabin was voted one of the best in the world, and features some of the largest in-flight screens. The world largest passenger plane will carry around 100 more passengers than the existing setup seating 489 or 517 passengers. However, Emirate Airline economy is best in the world be spacious and comfortable, the onboard passengers can pass their time by watching movies, TV shows, on one of the widest entertainment screens at 13.3 in.
The seat pitch (the space between the back of one seat and the back of the seat behind it) will remain 32-34in and the width will be slightly smaller at 17.5in, half an inch less than Emirates' three-class A380s, which have fewer economy seats.
