Emirates economy seating – best spot/s?

Emirates economy seating – best spot/s?

  1. Anonymous

    Hey, Ben…
    We are traveling JFK to Milan in October. Have to do this economy, but are hopeful the Emirates experience is better than average for that price. My husband is larger (not huge) and has 2 artificial knees, so trying to get a good economy seat is the goal. I understand the Airbus A380-800 is the plane for this route.
    Do you have thoughts?/advice on which economy seats are better than others?
    Thx!

    In general, I’d say look at a bulkhead seat but realize those will be a bit narrower due to tray tables located in the arm rests. Take a look at SeatMaestro ([URL]https://www.seatmaestro.com/airplanes-seat-maps/emirates-airbus-a380-three-class-ultra-long-range/[/URL]) and note that row 43 bulkhead seats may be not-so-great.

    Maybe others who’ve flown can make more recommendations.

    I found the Emirates economy experience to be very good when I flew them on the same route a couple of years ago. A bulkhead seat is probably best, followed by an aisle seat. Depending on load factors, you may have a row of 4 seats to yourselves where you can stretch out, which is what I was able to do on a DXB-JFK flight in Emirates Economy.

    Seats 68A or 68K (or 81A/81K) are the best economy seats on the EK A380. They are both window seats however the row in front only has two seats which are in front of the aisle and middle seat (as opposed to the standard 3 in the 3-4-3 configuration). Therefore you have the window to lean against and also some legroom with no seat in front. Also easier to get out as you don’t need to disturb the pax beside you.

    I’m not sure if it is still possible to book these online but maybe at the airport.

    Im assuming the TV and tray table come out of the arm rest for this seat, but where is the power plug on this seat, if any?

    Yes they come out of the arm rest. The power outlet is also located in the arm rest as far as I can remember.
