How does one access any of those seats?

You have to clamber over the seats to reach the ones squashed by the crew rest like an orangutan

Great Photo! There is an aisle to the left of the seats. It just looks very tight in this picture. Almost like an optical illusion!

Yeah, I would never want to sit in an area like that! Claustrophobic! Not too mention how did they get in there???

Maybe the angle plays tricks on your eyes but there definately is an aisle. This flight was a one off for the 100th birthday of Hamburg airport and EK probably couldn't find any other A380 without the crew rest.

How do you get to your seat with no aisle ??????

For the Isle, check the shadow of the seat on the wall, there is a distance between the seat and the shadow, that's the isle width :)

Guys, its a fish-eye camara. Notice the window side? Planes are round, but the curvatures aren't that "agressive".

The photo makes the cabin look quite different from reality, of course there is an aisle... All too lazy to check cabin maps?

How can they economically operate 380s on HAM-DXB!?

Indeed there is an aisle, but these have to be the worst seats on the plane. Like sitting in a hallway for 12 hours.

Come on guys, think about it. Why would a such top class airline offer seats, where you have to clamber over others to reach it. It is obviously an aisle, right next to the seats .

I suspect that there is an abnormally narrow aisle...but wide enough for a service cart? It must be.

The Emirates Seat Maps in words: The "crew rest box" sits between ABC and HJK, and is actually narrower than the DEFG seats. :P Its length spans from row 84 to 89 (rearmost row is 88 in the main deck, it extends one more row) and there's plenty of space behind that for access to upper deck stairs.. :)

Am I missing something here? To me it looks like, from this picture, the passengers immediately where this photo was taken, to about 3 or 4 rows forward, they're trapped....to the outside seat, there's a wall, and to the inside "row" seat, there's a wall, with a window!!! Those passengers look trapped in case of an emergency, or when they reach their destination airport!

Good job starting a controversy with a fish-eye lens...hehe!

The type of lens used makes it look like there's no aisle when there (obviously) is!
Great shot.

Interesting picture. I donĀ“t want to ever fly in that thing. Or in any other A-buses, for that matter.

I always book one of these seats in this rea. It is actually a nice space. Very quite and private.
