The aircraft will be equipped with the already highly sought-after Premium Economy seats, which we will launch extensively in the coming months. “
The three new A380s will be equipped with Emirates’ Premium Economy cabin, the refurbished A380 cabin interior and other amenities, including private suites and Shower Spas in First Class, Onboard Lounge, fully reclining seats in Business Class and larger backrest.
