The ‘spacious side section’ is above the end of the seat next to it. I’ve seen lots of pictures of the cabin, and unless they’ve been doctored I expect to see the same thing when I try it for myself. In fact I will take some photos onboard with me, and go compare.
I might travel business outbound and first return, and see for myself a true 4 across layout, in the same part of the same plane. I am wondering where the minibar and tray table is on Emirates first as the seat cushion occupies all most the entire width of the seat.
No connection to BeckyBoop thank you. I think that maybe one of the Krug handles.
