Emirates unveils Premium Economy class on new Airbus A380 (Video)
A few days ago, Emirates received a new Airbus A380, which was delivered from the Airbus base in Hamburg. It comes equipped in 4 tariff classes: Economy, Premium Economy, Business Class and First Class. Emirates pushes the Airbus A380 experience to another level!
The absolute novelty is the Premium Economy cabin, plus improvements to all other classes. This configuration will be implemented on the other 5 Airbus A380 aircraft, which will be delivered in 2021 and 2022. At the same time, Emirates plans to modernize the interiors of the existing Airbus A380 aircraft in the fleet. And from 2023, the Emirates Premium Economy class will also be found on Boeing 777X aircraft.

Emirates has revealed details about the long-awaited Premium Economy cab. There are 56 seats in a 2-4-2 cabin structure. The chairs are 1 meter high, 0.5 meters wide and have Business Class-like finishes. Each seat is designed to provide optimal comfort and support with 6-way adjustable headrests and footrest.
