Inside cabin view: This is what the cabin of Emirates' modern Airbus A380 looks like

Emirates is equipping almost its entire A380 fleet with a new cabin design. aeroTELEGRAPH took a look at ILA's new cabin.

Emirates is by far the largest operator of A380 aircraft in the world. Dubai Airlines has 116 aircraft in its fleet and wants to keep the jumbo jets for at least 17 years. In November 2021, it was announced that 52 A380 aircraft would be equipped with a modern cabin, including a new premium economy class. In addition to the four-jets, the company is also modernizing the cabin of its 777 fleet.

As premium economy, according to Emirates, has been a huge success at the box office, the Gulf carrier has announced that it wants to convert more A380 aircraft. In April 2022, it was said that 15 more A380s would follow. At the beginning of May, Emirates increased the number with another 43 Airbus A380 aircraft. This means that 110 of the 116 Airbus A380 aircraft will have a new cabin in the coming years.

28 Airbus A380 aircraft with a new design

During a press tour at the ILA trade show, an Emirates spokesperson said that 28 of the planned 110 aircraft have already received the planned new cabin design. The spokesman did not give a timetable for when all the planes would be diverted.

Compared to the old cabin design, it is noticeable that the cabin is designed to be more discreet. In Ella, Emirates Airlines is displaying the Airbus A380 with registration number A6-EVG, a five-year-old aircraft that offers space for 484 passengers in four travel classes in the modern cabin: 14 seats in first class, and 76 seats in business class. 56 seats in business class and 56 seats in first class. Premium economy seats and 338 economy seats.
