Emirates unveils new Premium Economy Class

Tue Dec 29, 2020 9:53 am

Emirates today has unveiled its new Premium Economy seats onboard its lastest A380 that was delivered.

The new seats will be featured on the airline’s upcoming B777X fleet. The airline will also be retrofitting the A380 fleet.

Quote:

“Emirates today unveiled details of its highly-anticipated premium economy cabin, which offers 56 seats in a 2-4-2 cabin layout.”

“With a generous pitch of up to 40-inches, Emirates’ premium economy seat is 19.5 inches wide, and reclines 8 inches into a comfortable cradle position with ample room to stretch out. Covered in cream-coloured anti-stain leather with stitching details and a wood panel finishing similar to Business Class, each seat is designed to provide optimal comfort and support with 6-way adjustable headrests, calf rests and footrests.”

First Class cabin has saw some changes that included wider and fully enclosed suites.

Business Class cabin has saw further enhancements with seats colors and finishings.

The first destinations to receive the new configuration will be announced in the coming weeks.

Considering the number of roughly 6 hour flights Emirates flies, this looks pretty nice actually. I'd seriously consider it.

It is certainly not the rumoured futuristic seats. But the furnishing is certainly very luxury. If the price can match competitors I will certainly give it a try!

I like the muted tones, but the faux wood is very gaudy. How practical is that light colour in terms of being able to withstand heavy traffic and the associated knocks and scuffs? I Eire you it will not look pristine fir long.
I only turn left when boarding aircraft. Well, mostly. All right, sometimes. OH OKAY - rarely.

Seems like something so exotic now...like another age and another place...when an airline actually takes delivery of a new A380...

Definitely. Compare this with Pakistan Airlines' long haul business, or narrowbody business class on Qatar, Etihad or Turkish.

TBF, that's not far off the old business class of the late 80's/early 90's...
I certainly remember flying on a BA741 in club in 96, which looked very similar.... the recline may have been a tad more, but that's about it.

The seats are nice and I don’t even mind the faux wood on the tray tables, but the faux wood on the sidewalls is a bit too much.

I would imagine they will eventually do one class upgrades, so Economy to Premium Economy and Premium Economy to Business.

Tacky beyond belief.

The decor may have a few issues but good to see them finally adding a premium economy considering so much of the competition (excluding the ME3) has something these days.

Same seat, Recaro PL3530, as already used by British Airways, China Southern, Iberia, LEVEL and Vistara.

My main concerns would be how well it will wear in service with those very light colours once kids with pens, and adults with red wine and coffee get into it!

This caters to companies whose travel policies now prevent staff from travelling business class, and whose travel budgets have migrated over time to airlines offering Y+ as an option.

If EK maintains their price edge over those airlines that already rolled out Y+ products (as they usually do in Y and J), they may hit a sweet spot in the market that is likely to expand at the expenses of J-class, in the post-Covid world.

It looks really really good, the wood especially - I think they've nailed it , worth upgrading from Y but not good enough to downgrade from business . Hopefully Qatar, TK , Ethiad will start adding PE ,,

Well done EK , this is a game changer ...

The product clearly meets the sweet spot , it's all about the pricing now as you say - but EK is very clever, hopefully the know what they're doing on price (fingers crossed).

It's a gamechanger that a ME carrier has introduced it, because the ME3, Turkish and Ethiopian don't offer it.

It's a gamechanger that a ME connector has it, because PE on 2x6 hour legs is a completely different and more attractive prospect than spending 12 hours in sitting go in a PE seat between Europe, Asia and Africa. If they get the service and price right, they could potentially start stealing business class passengers from lessor carriers in the region. Think Air India or Pakistan Airlines, who have not so good onboard products, and where flights to Europe are so short they barely justify a lie-flat seat.

Basically its Business from the 90's, have yet to see it live, if some of the finishes do not look to over the top, but in general it has a real 'Premium Look'.

Beautiful. I don’t mind the faux wood paneling at all. It actually makes it seem more luxurious and quasi-PJ experience. Adds warmth to the cabin space as well. Most aircraft cabins are drab cold and lifeless that remind me of Soviet era architecture to be honest.

Those standard white wall panels with microdot print pattern are just plain boring.....

Beautiful seat (like many others, wood panels aside), but underwhelming deployment. Per the PR, only 5 A380s currently will get it and "some" 777X from 2023. Disappointing they didn't do some version (read: less fancy) for the 77W and existing A380 fleet.

I think the “hate” is mainly because Emirates hinted at something industry changing, and then unveiled an off-the-shelf seat used by several other airlines covered in cream leather with some wood trim around the windows. People were expecting something they hadn’t seen before. Whether that’s to your taste or not is a matter for the individual... but the fact remains Emirates are very late to the Premium Economy party and nothing in this product appears to be disruptive to the offerings from the major worldwide airlines.

Probably the single biggest hurdle to my being willing to give EK a try (or any Gulf carrier, for that matter) is the lack of a W cabin on intercontinental routes, something that UA, AA, DL, BA, AF, LH, SU, NH, JL, SQ, CX, QF, and NZ all have. Once international travel comes back, this might prompt me to give EK a try.

Question: I see that the A380 fleet will get this cabin as well as the new 777X fleet. What about EK's existing 77W aircraft? Will they receive it, as well?

This sums it up well. EK has been peddling mediocre to downright rubbish hard products (excluding F) for years. They just do a good job/ spend a lot of money on marketing and advertising and have managed to fool a lot of people.

YEP you hit it right on the head of the nail. That being said the new First Class products are far superior to what was First Class back in the Day and the Lay Flat J seats are superior to the old recliner business class back in the day. PE is now on par with the old J of 20 years ago, and new J is similar service wise to the old F.

Looks swish! However. I’ve taken them up on their paid upgrade offers from Y to Business on their BNE-DXB A380 overnight run a couple of times. Money extremely well spent IMO! But this is likely to become a Y to PE only offer on flights that have the premium economy cabin, replacing the possibility to upgrade to J. Having said that, I shall only have to worry about that if EK ever retrofit their older A380s and if they reintroduce the A380 to BNE, which could be a long way away, if ever.

I think Emirates have capitalised on the fact that a lot of people notice the fake gold trim and walnut accents before they notice other things. I’m still staggered that over 50% of their fleet Business Class, including on some really long flights, is recliners with a old-school middle coffin seat in the middle block of 3. The A380 product was decent, but again hasn’t been touched in over 10 years til now. Even the 2016 refresh of Business Class on the 77W came with a note that it wouldn’t be retrofitted.

Qatar even on their pre Q-suite 777s were fully flat... and were actively re-configuring their fleet to the latest product. Emirates seems to take the aircraft in the layout they were delivered in and run with that for a very long time... despite where the market might go in the meantime, while their competitors seem mere willing to refresh their cabins. And even a lot of Western airlines not famed for their product have invested hugely in new seats... while Emirates soldiers on unchanged.

Ok so I am guessing you are not an EK fan and it’s fair to say I am. I’ve flown all over the globe with them in y j and F and I have found them to offer the best service and best cabins of any airline globally.

I’m sorry, but to say this is underwhelming is completely naive. It looks absolutely outstanding and as many have said it out-classes many airlines J. I often use miles to upgrade from Y to J or J to F but if this is as comfortable as it looks I’ll seriously consider this for sub 8 hour flights (like from my home port to Dubai).
