Reply To: Airbus upsizes A380, optional 11 abreast economy

Back to Forum


I can’t see how they’re getting more seats in economy using the standard 32 inch pitch and 18.5 inch width seat in a 10 across 3-4-3 layout. On the 11 across option it is of course obvious.

Emirates fanboys please note that their business class seat is the same width as a standard economy seat, although their economy seat is 18 inches wide on the A380, less on other types. This is how they squeeze in 8 across in business.
