The A380 includes two full-length decks, allowing airlines to include features like bar and lounge areas, lie-flat seats in business class, and private suites. The aircraft’s cabin air gets recycled every two minutes, while advanced lighting systems provide mood and ambient features.
Emirates economy seats are 45 centimetres wide, and have a seat pitch up to 87 centimetres. That's roomy for economy.
Emirates recently introduced blankets for economy passengers aboard the A380 that are made entirely from recycled plastic bottles, in addition to economy amenity kits with eye masks, earplugs, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and socks.
The aircraft's double-decker layout allows for airlines like Emirates, Etihad, and Korean Air to install onboard lounges. Emirates' onboard lounge, which is reserved for first and business class passengers, even has a bartender.
Emirates' business class on the A380 has staggered seats that can be laid flat. Seat pitch in business class is 111 centimeters, while the seat width ranges from 47 to 53 centimeters.
First class includes 14 private suites, all on the upper deck on the A380. Seats recline to full-flat beds and include electronically operated sliding screen doors for privacy.
The Suite Life
First class passengers will also find a vanity table with drawers, an illuminated mirror, a personal wardrobe, a personal mini-bar, and a dining table for in-flight meals.
There are two shower spas in the first class cabin with walnut and marble interiors. Outside, customers will find a waterfall.
The A380 is the quietest widebody jetliner flying today. Emirates was the first airline to buy an A380, which is also operated by Singapore Airlines, Qantas, Air France, Lufthansa, Korean Air, China Southern Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Thai Airways International, British Airways, Asiana Airlines, Qatar Airways, and Etihad Airways.
