Unveiled: The Emirates A380

Emirates unveiled a brand new design for the interior of the Airbus A380 superjumbo after the handover on July 28, 2008.

The plane will come into active service on August 1, with a flight to New York's JFK airport, which it will cover two hours faster than other long haul jets.

The 14 first class suites continue with the Emirates' tradition of giving premium passengers private spaces.

One of the most headline grabbing features are the two new spa-shower suites which will be available for first class passengers.

The first class cabin has been designed to offer one of the most luxurious experiences available in the air.

Business class will feature 76 lie flat seats on the upper deck of the aircraft as well as a dedicated lounge area for passengers to gather.

Customers in the first class cabin will have a fully reclining seat and a mini bar, as well as a lounge area to relax in.


Economy class will take up the entire lower deck of the plane and provide seating for 399 passengers.

Emirates says economy class cabin has been redesigned to give the appearance of more space by using straight walls instead of curved, and advanced mood lighting system and noticeably quieter cabin will help to combat jetlag.

The cockpit has been designed to be similar to existing Airbus aircraft, thereby reducing the amount of training time needed for pilots.

    And, how long is a Dubai-New York flight anyway? Is there really a need for a shower once you’ve taken off?

    WOW!! that plane looks wonderful!

    But my personal experience with Emirates airline is not so good. In fact it was awful!! We used Emirates for our 2nd umrah, connecting flights from Lahore-Abu’Dabi-Jeddah. ALL FOUR planes had all sorts of problems, engine problems, 4 hours late. We took off from Jeddah on our way back and Mr. Pilot announced after an hour of flying that the engine has some issue and we have to go back to Jeddah! Heeeelllllooooo….I wanted to scream, “the plane is not working and you idiots still took off…what if we can’t land at Jeddah?”

    I’m sorry to hear about your bad experience with Emirates. I can imagine your frustration regarding the engine issues, woh bhi all 4 planes! When was this? Because I think Emirates Airlines don’t use the Abu Dhabi airport, only Dubai.

    Fortunately for me, my experience with Emirates has been very good.

    it looks like a great airplane… too bad most of us will only fly economy so can’t shower on the plane!

  8. Ordinary girl says:

    Last year in Aug. Don’t know which airports they use. That was my first and hopefully LAST experience with them! 😀

    The A380s are awesome! I saw a documentary on how they are built. Absolutely phenominal.

  10. nadia says:

    Mezba ~ I’d rather fly economy than pay thousands of dirhams more just for a shower, unless of course, it’s a business trip and the company’s willing to pay 😀

    Ordinary Girl ~ Looks like Emirates just lost a customer, hehe.

    Amir ~ I’ll search Youtube for that documentary. Mujhey bhi deykna hai how they built it 🙂
