New-look Economy Class by Emirates
Emirates is introducing an enhanced, new-look Economy Class across its fleet starting starting this month.
Travellers flying Economy Class on Emirates will immediately notice the fresh look of the aircraft cabin with the ergonomically-designed seats sporting a new mauve and peach colour scheme. At meal times, passengers will also see a change of presentation with their meals served on matching trays and elegant crockery especially designed to represent Dubai’s iconic seven-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab. The tray items also feature a classy pearlescent finish that reflects Dubai’s heritage in pearl diving.
The airline’s new-look Economy Class will be gradually implemented across the fleet beginning with flights to Europe, the Far East, Australasia and North America. In the coming months, Emirates also plans to revitalise its onboard product for young travellers and update its travel amenity kits for premium classes.
Emirates’ Economy Class passengers continue to enjoy the latest in-flight movies and music programmes via their individual, in-seat television screens; generous leg-room; meals designed by gourmet chefs and award-winning service from a highly-trained team of cabin crew recruited from over 90 countries around the world.
The airline is also currently retrofitting its fleet of Boeing 777-200 aircraft with the ICE (information, communications and entertainment) inflight entertainment system. Already available on Emirates’ Airbus A340-500 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, ICE offers passengers an amazing range of facilities including more than 500 entertainment channels plus communication facilities such as telephone, SMS and e-mail from their personal in-seat system.
