Emirates Unveils New Airbus A380 With A Record 615 Seats After Ripping Out First Class To Pack In More Passengers

Economy class is getting even bigger after Emirates reconfigured its new Airbus A380-800 planes to hold the most seats ever for an airliner.

Already the world’s largest passenger plane, the new two-class A380 will hold a staggering 615 passengers in business and economy – but travellers in so-called cattle class will not lose any legroom inside Emirates’ overhauled cabin.

The luxury Gulf carrier has made room for 130 additional economy seats, or 13 rows with 10 seats in each, by scrapping the spacious first class cabin and trimming 18 flat-bed seats from business class.

Unveiled at the Dubai Airshow this week, Emirates’ two-class A380 has 557 seats in economy and 58 seats and a lounge in business – carrying enough passengers to rival the population of a small village.

The two-class planes will carry about 100 more passengers than the existing three-class fleet.
