Economy class is getting bigger with Emirates unveiling its reconfiguration of Airbus A380-800 planes to hold the maximum seats ever for an airliner. Look at the incredible interior.
Already the world’s largest passenger plane, the new two-class A380 will hold an astounding 615 passengers in business and economy – but travelers in so-called cattle class will not lose any legroom inside Emirates’ renovated cabin.
Challenging itself – and making it better
The luxury Gulf carrier has made room for 130 additional economy seats – 13 rows with 10 seats in each, by scrapping the spacious first class cabin and trimming 18 flat-bed seats from business class.
No lesser legroom
Passengers in the economy won’t have to compromise on legroom.
The two-class planes will carry about 100 more passengers than the existing three-class fleet.
Business class carries lie-flat seats

After the Dubai Airshow ends, the massive four-engine plane will be used on Emirates’ Dubai-Copenhagen route when it starts the commercial service on 1 December. The average flight time between Dubai and Copenhagen is seven hours and a one-way economy class ticket costs about £350 ($540).
