The Airbus A380-800, the flagship of Emirates Airlines; Called the Superjumbo, it is the largest, most comfortable, and quietest airliner in the world. It is definitely the long-haul aircraft of choice in all three classes, with up to date in-flight entertainment & the newest seats.
There are two types of Emirates A380. This is the ultra long range version (which has a crew dormitory in the middle of the rear economy cabin) seating 489: also, see the Emirates long range A380 seating 516.
Emirates Airlines – Airbus A380-800
The Emirates Airlines A380 seating map has a cabin layout with economy class throughout the lower deck, in four cabins. The A380 seat pitch is 32″, but it is crowded in a 3-4-3. Due to the curvature of the hull, window seats here have restricted legroom.
The four cabins are pretty much the same crampt lottery, however the slope of the fuselage blights the back seats in the rear-most cabin, while the toilet block of five bathrooms greets the front cabin, which you’ll curse during a 14 hour flight: no wonder crew call this cabin the flying lavatory.
Food: Emirates Airlines have a great reputation for inflight food, and serve complementary drinks (Free beer, wine and spirits)
Entertainment:Seatback TVs in all classes on Emirates A380, with AVOD (start,stop,pause) showing 100 films & 180 TV programmes.
Lounges: Emirates Airlines have separate First & Business Lounges. Lounges have free food, drink & complementary bar
An Emirates A380 economy class review shows the best seats are normally regarded as 52A & K, and 68A & K, however these EK A380 best seats are normally reserved for Emirates Airline’s most frequent flyers. If you look at the Emirates Airlines A380 floor plan you’ll see why many passengers much prefer the Emirate Airlines A380 front cabin economy seats. With most airlines this cabin is reserved for first class, because it is far away from engine noise and is very quiet, however Emirates has put economy in this cabin.
On the upper deck, the Emirates Airlines A380 seating map has First Class in the nose with individual cabins. These have all the bling of Dubai, and the substance is just as lacking – they are curiously narrow. Other airlines A380 cabins tend to have 3 or 4 seats across on the wide lower deck. Emirates have 4 on the more cramp A380 top deck. However, you get plenty of toys: the cabin has doors, there is a (non-alcoholic) mini-bar, a small walk-up bar, and two vast lavatories with inflight showers!
Also on the upper deck, the Emirates Airlines A380 Business Class is in a wacky staggered design. Each seat faces to the front, however, when sliding into a flat bed, it slips into the minibar pod in front: consequently the aisle seats (B, D, G, J) have a shorter 70” (5’10”) bed, while window and middle seats (A, E, F, K) are longer with a 79” bed. Sit in the isle, and you may regret it. You can save seat and in-flight entertainment settings to a USB Stick. There is an mini-wardrobe, in-seat mini-bar and a larger walk up bar with sofas at the rear of the cabin.
