WOW: Emirates Unveils World’s Biggest Plane, Featuring Swimming Pool, Park, And More!

WOW: Emirates Unveils World’s Biggest Plane, Featuring Swimming Pool, Park, And More!

Emirates has been innovating for a long time. Prior to them introducing an onboard shower, I don’t think anyone thought that would ever be added to a commercial aircraft.

Well, now they’re upping the game again, as they introduce their newest plane, the APR001. Per Emirates’ Facebook page:

Emirates unveils plans for the world’s largest commercial aircraft. The triple-decker APR001 includes a swimming pool, games room, gym and park.

This is going to be a game changer for people traveling from Dubai to the US. Who needs laptops when there are so many ways to stay entertained?

I just booked my ticket on the new plane, which will launch service between New York and Los Angeles as of April 1, 2018. CAN’T WAIT!!!

    This is very fake the biggest airliner is a a380 with only 2 floors and no lounge and swimming pool

  2. Philip Guest

    Its an aprilsfools prank

  3. Franklin D Roosi Guest

    I would love to see pictures of what the park inside the airplane looks like.

  4. Al Lacey Guest

    What is an April Fool today will be reality tomorrow. Remember people used to think the world was flat.
    AL.

    If you're going to have a pool, make it a glass bottom one!

  6. Ken Hoover Guest

    Do you have to wear a swimsuit to board or can you change on board?

  9. Jo145 Member

    Love that Emirates launched this ... missed all the other 1 April "jokes" in the media so this one makes up for it.

  10. jerry Member

    Cant wait until Emirates launches domestic service from NY to Miami later this year. I will ditch the legacy carriers forever.

    Sorry, but this is just too easy.

  13. Nangavaram S Ramamurthy Guest

    Emirates don't build planes, but they do have a sense of humor on April 1st to celebrate all fools day.

  14. varun susarla Guest

    Stay serious lucky :p

  15. Ryan Member

    I couldn't help but notice that the banner on their FB page is celebrating their SEVENTH Million fans....yet I don't think number 6,000,000 or 7,000,000 got anything special. Georgia 1 - Emirates 0.

  16. Aeryn Guest

    ...I'll see you on board, Lucky. I've also booked my flight! Awesome! ;)

  17. MIKE Guest

    WOW! How dumb would someone have to be to fall for this. You know how long it takes to create a brand new aircraft. Let's also mention the fact that it would be impossible to fly with a pool full of water. If I have to explain that then you're a little low on the IQ scale.

  18. SullyofDoha Gold

    Happy April Fools to everyone :-)

    Lucky, I've been an avid follower of yours and a vocal supporter for years, but your reporting has descended to appallingly low levels. You entirely missed the most game-changing addition to that plane: a single 10-pin bowling lane. I hereby renounce my citizenship to the Republic of Schlappig. Oh, and you also failed to mention that CX announced just today that they're testing 'SRE' cabins (standing room economy) from YVR to HKG for an amazing...

    There was a solid 5 minutes where I believed this until I got called out by a family member who was like are you serious. I'm such a fool, it was on the name of the plane and everything *facepalm*

  21. RD Member

    Hey Ben, in that case, I just booked an Etihad frhe residence class roundtrip between Los Angeles and Mumbai on the new 777's residence class for the first leg LAX to AUH and the A380 on the AUH-BOM leg all for just a whopping 5 Frontier Earli y return miles! Great deal only lasting through tomorrow. Take advantage before this deal goes.

  22. L7 Guest

    I'm more excited for the new "Estates" on Ethiad which are rumored to serve produce grown on the airplane. Truly locally sourced.

  23. Jason Guest

    I like the reading lights and personal vents above the pool, unless that means they're going to pack it as full as coach.

  24. tim Guest

    Mitch,

    Guess where it's April 1 already?

    //hint: Where is Emirates headquartered?

  25. Nate Guest

    APR001!?!?!?! Nice try there!

  26. Brendan Joseph Madden Guest

    lol loving the delta skymiles joke @Lucky - possibly an even better april fools.

    The Delta Emirates joint venture using the seats from UA's 777-200's "community seating" is really exciting, they're gonna fit the sky bar between them.

  27. Red Guest

    I knew it wasn't a real airplane, but some kind of weird airplane shaped theme park didn't seem beyond the realm of possibility in Dubai. They already have the A380 "simulator" in the Dubai mall. I guess that makes me an April fool? Or just a skeptic about the appeal of Lucky's favorite city.

  28. JL Member

    Isn't this a day too early?
    Or are you currently at a time zone where it's already Apr 1?

  29. Alfred Guest

    Ah ah ah... No diving board from First into the pool ??

  30. Paul Guest

    @lucky - We can use skypesos for this??? Game Changer! So April 1, 2018 is the OMAAT reader meet up on the inaugural right?

  31. TheRealBabushka Guest

    What a lame ass April Fool's joke....try harder Ben.

  32. Brodie Gold

    No hot tub? Bet Ethiad takes care of that need.......

  33. Mitch Cumstein Gold

    ¿April Fool's on March 31?

  34. RF Diamond

    The real problem is that a NYC to LA flight is too short to enjoy such imaginary amenities.

    1. lucky OMAAT

      @ RF -- Except I managed to book it using Delta SkyMiles thanks to their new joint venture, so I can't complain too much.

  35. Owen Guest

    Those bottom deck economy seats below the golf course and behind the pool seem like they'd be pretty depressing. The noise from both F activities (or maybe golf is J?) will be quite audible and you get the chlorine smell from the pool. But you don't get any amenities aside from 12-across (either 5-5-2 or 10-2, hard to see) seating.

  36. Donald Guest

    This is indeed 100% true. Just ask Trump!

  37. Kevin Guest

    Lucky=sucker for a joke

  38. Jay Guest

    Ugggg can we not do April fools day jokes this year. They are so overplayed

  39. Abe Guest

    Is this for real?

    Also who makes this plane?

  40. Ted New Member

    Still only March 31 here in the USA

  41. Brenton Guest

    Anyone else tired of it already? BTW, the JetBlue millennial class has you beat...

  42. Joey Diamond

    Lmao. My favorite april fools joke of yours was the AF La Première one a few years ago.

  43. Credit Guest

    Too early.

    So lucky, what's the special plan tonight, that you had to come back from Hong Kong. I thought you and ford were already married?

  44. Chris_IOW Member

    I believed this up until the line about the 1 year timescale to entry to service!!! How long did the 787 take!

    (And no, I didn't really believe the rest of it!)

  45. Date in Dubai Guest

    "The triple-decker APR001..." APR = April?

  46. Ryan Guest

    It is already April Fools over there, ya know... (and yes, I'm assuming you probably do)
