We have reviewed a number of flights on the Emirates Airbus A380 in Business Class. Emirates’ A380 Business Class is excellent. Emirates’ A380 aircraft feature a staggered 1-2-1 configuration, which is much better for solo travellers and overall a much better design than the main alternative plane which is the Boeing 777 with its 2-3-2 layout.
The 2-3-2 layout is inferior to Business Class on the airline’s Airbus A380 fleet. Business Class on the A380 features direct aisle access for all passengers and brilliant bar on the upper deck.
Emirates Chauffeur Service
If you flying Business (or First) Class with Emirates you get complimentary chauffeur-driven airport transfers. This has value into the hundreds of pounds so make sure you take the transfers into account when you calculate the cost of the flight.
Emirates will drive you to and from the airport at both ends of your journey. Chauffeur-drive must be requested online, up to 48 hours prior to your flight. If the Chauffeur-drive service requested exceeds the mileage limits specified for that city, passengers must pay for the excess mileage at locally applicable rates. For London Heathrow and London Gatwick, the mileage limit is 70m. I am located 93 miles from Heathrow so always have to pay excess mileage.
Of note: Effective 1 March 2019, new Chauffeur-drive service reservations are not available in conjunction with Skywards Business and First Class Classic Rewards and Economy to Business Class Upgrades. It is also NOT available on reward tickets booked via Emirates Skywards airline partners for travel on Emirates.
Emirates has the largest Boeing 777 & Airbus A380 fleet in the world. They currently have a huge 105 Airbus A380’s in their fleet and an order for 57 additional aircraft.
All Emirates A380s are fitted at the Airbus factory in Hamburg with cabin interior work and final livery being delivered from Hamburg. Airbus estimates that Emirates’ A380 orders alone support 41,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs in Europe, including some 14,500 in Germany alone. Emirates currently operates the A380 to 48 global destinations.
Privacy, personalised service and glamour tipify Emirates’ cabins and Emirates recently upgraded the onboard Lounge/Bar on its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft where you can stretch your legs and mingle with other fliers.
If you travel through the Emirates hub in Dubai airport you will be given access to their Business Class lounge. I have reviewed and shared pictures of the Emirates Business Class Lounge at Dubai Airport. I have also reviewed the Emirates First Class suites.
