Emirates recently revealed their new Premium Economy seat onboard a new A380. I was invited to take a first look of the new Premium Economy cabin.
During my tour of the aircraft, I interviewed Adel Al Redha, Chief Operating Officer of Emirates. I asked him why Emirates is launching such new product and whether more airplanes in the fleet will feature such product.
Currently, Emirates is not selling the Premium Economy until they have more airplanes equipped with the new product. So for the time being they’re giving complimentary upgrades for frequent flyers and full fare paying Economy passengers. More details of the soft product in Premium Economy will be revealed in the future.
Not only Premium Economy, the rest of the Emirates A380 cabin is also upgraded. You can see the new fabric and finishings of Business Class and Economy Class.
