Emirates to Unveil Enhanced Airbus A380 Onboard Lounge
Emirates is set to launch a series of new multi-million dollar cabin interiors upgrade and cabin products enhancements for both its Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 fleet.
The upgrade includes an enhanced A380 Onboard Lounge which will make its first public appearance at the Emirates Infinite Possibilities stand at the ITB Berlin Travel Trade Show coming up in March.
While retaining the trademark horseshoe-shaped bar, Emirates’ latest A380 Onboard Lounge will offer more seating space with a new seating arrangement along the windows on both sides of the bar.
Inspired by private yacht cabins, each seating area will have a table and window view. Overall, the lounge can comfortably accommodate up to 26 passengers at a time, including 8 seated.
The new Onboard Lounge will also feature an airier look and feel, lighter champagne colours accented by a glossy dark wood trim, soundproof curtains, integrated LED mood lighting and subwoofers for surround sound.
All of Emirates’ 93 A380s currently in service feature the Onboard Lounge. The enhanced lounge product will be similarly located on the upper deck of the aircraft, for First and Business Class passengers.
The new Onboard Lounge is currently being installed on one of Emirates’ brand new A380 aircraft at Airbus’ facilities, and will make its operational debut in July 2017.
