The A380 features 76 fully flat mini-pod business class seats on the main deck, as well as 14 first-class private suites.
Emirates’ double-decker Airbus A380 superjumbo aircraft has been deployed on the airline’s daily flights between Dubai and Osaka starting October 28. As such, premium passengers will now be able to enjoy both a business and first-class cabin, as well as access to the aircraft’s onboard lounge.
Replacing the 777-300ER aircraft which previously operated the route, the superjumbo offers an increased capacity of 38 percent.
Highlights of the A380 include 76 fully flat mini-pod business class seats on the main deck, as well as 14 first-class private suites (which also come with shower facilities) on the upper deck.
Plus, premium class passengers will be able to enjoy the aircraft’s onboard lounge, which comes with a Japanese dining service while on the route.
Thierry Antinori, executive vice-president and chief commercial officer of Emirates, said: “Osaka is a significant gateway for Emirates in Japan and this capacity increase allows us to extend our A380 service to passengers who appreciate an unrivaled travel experience.”
