Technical information about Emirates Airlines-

"Emirates is a state-owned flag carrier airline based in Garhoud, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The airline is a subsidiary of The Emirates Group, which is owned by the government of Dubai's Investment Corporation of Dubai.[4] It is the largest airline in the Middle East,[5] operating over 3,600 flights per week from its hub at Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport, to more than 150 cities in 80 countries across six continents.[6] Cargo activities are undertaken by Emirates SkyCargo.[7]

Emirates is the world's fourth largest airline by scheduled revenue passenger-kilometers flown,[8] and the second-largest in terms of freight tonne kilometers flown.

Emirates operates a mixed fleet of Airbus and Boeing wide-body aircraft and is one of the few airlines to operate an all-wide-body aircraft fleet (while excluding Emirates Executive[10]). As of February 2019, Emirates is the largest Airbus A380 operator with 115 aircraft in service and a further 8 on order. Since its introduction, the Airbus A380 has become an integral part of the Emirates fleet, especially on long-haul high-traffic routes. Emirates is also the world's largest Boeing 777 operator with 144 aircraft in service.


As of August 2018, Emirates operates a fleet of more than 250 aircraft.[71] Emirates operates the largest fleet of both the Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft in the world,[72] with one A319 as an executive jet. Emirates has had no narrow-body aircraft in its mainline fleet since 1995.

In July 2014, Emirates finalized an order for 150 Boeing 777X aircraft, consisting of 35 777-8s and 115 777-9s,[73] and, as of October 2017, was expected to become the launch operator for the 777X in mid-2020.[74] In November 2017, it signed a commitment for 40 787-10s,[75] but by early 2019 it was considering cancelling this order due to engine margins being insufficient for the hot Dubai weather, in favour of the A350.[76]

In February 2019, Emirates signed a memorandum of understanding with Airbus for 40 A330-900s and 30 A350-900s, while reducing its total A380 order to 123[77] after which Airbus will cease production of the A380.[78] In November 2019, Emirates announced an order of 50 A350-900s worth US$16 billion that superseded the February memorandum of understanding.[79] Also in November Emirates ordered 30 787-9s with a value of US$8.8 billion with deliveries to commence in 2023, while reducing its order of 777Xs from 150 to 126.[80]

First Class Cabin

There are two types of first class seating; the fully enclosed suite with a ceiling to floor door and a private suite with doors that close but don't extend to the ceiling. Both suites come complete with closing doors to ensure privacy, a mini-bar, a coat rack and storage. They also feature the ICE system on a 23-inch-wide (58 cm) LCD screen in the private suites and a 32-inch-wide (81 cm) on the fully enclosed suite. The seat converts into a 2-metre-long (79 in) fully flat bed. Private suites are available on 3-class Airbus A380-800 and 3-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.[81] The fully enclosed suites are available on its newly delivered Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.[82]

On its newly delivered Airbus A380-800, First class features private suites,[83] two shower-equipped lavatories and spa,[84] and access to the first/business class bar area and lounge.[85] Premium class seating is located on the entire upper deck of A380-800 aircraft.

Emirates introduced a new First Class cabin for its Boeing 777-300ER fleet on 12 November 2017[86] and first flight to Brussels and Geneva on 1 December 2017. The new First Class cabin is configured with six suites on a 1-1-1 layout. The middle suites come with virtual windows that project live feed from the outside of the aircraft on real time. Both the middle suites are equipped with 3 virtual windows which are high definition LCD screens which relay real time image using the HD cameras on either side of the aircraft. Amenities include 2 minibars placed on either side of the entertainment screen, a 13inch tablet with a front camera to communicate with the cabin crew and to order room service. A panel to control the lighting and temperature inside the suite. Emirates has also introduced a new seat in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz, which feature a new zero-gravity position.[87][88] The suites are expected to resemble "a private bedroom on a luxury yacht".[89]

First and business class passengers, and Skywards Platinum and Gold members have access to 33 Emirates lounges in 32 cities.[114] Skywards Silver members can use the lounges at Dubai Airport only. At airports in which Emirates does not operate a departure lounge, a third-party departure lounge is usually provided for First and Business class passengers and Skywards Platinum and Gold members.[115]"
