Emirates is rolling out a redesigned premium cabin experience aboard its Airbus A380 double-decker fleet.
Operating with additional health and safety measures in place, the A380 Onboard Lounge has been transformed into a takeaway bar, offering limited seating capacity and practicing social distance protocols. The bar will continue to offer First and Business Class passengers wine, spirits, soft drinks and pre-packaged bites that customers can take with them when returning to their own seats. Passengers are also able to order from their seats.
The social areas in Business Class on select Boeing 777 aircraft and in First Class have also re-opened with pre-packed snacks for customers to grab and go.
The A380 Onboard Lounge and Shower Spa have resumed operations with the introduction of additional health and safety measures. The airline has also enhanced its offering, introducing a nutrient-rich welcome drink for the winter season.
From 1 November, Emirates’ onboard dining experience will return to its signature service while observing strict hygiene protocols. Customers in all classes will enjoy multi-course meals and choose from a complimentary selection of beverages including wine and beer, as well as juices and soft drinks. Cocktails will also be served in premium classes. In economy class, customers can choose from two wines; in business class, customers can choose from six wines including port and champagne, while in first class, customers will have a selection of 11 wines including a dessert wine, port and Dom Perignon champagne.
Emirates will also soon launch a welcome drink in premium classes called Vitality Boost in First and Business Class. The airline’s chefs and nutritionists have created a refreshing blend of apple, ginger and hibiscus to give customers a health kick on their journey. The vegan, nutrient-rich drink is packed with antioxidants, and free from gluten and added sugar. The health drink will be a staple on board and continually refreshed to offer different flavours. Customers can also choose from a range of welcome drinks including champagne and other juices.
First Class customers on the A380 can once again have a shower at 40,000 feet. Luxury spa products will be provided in individual amenity bags to each customer. The sets include pamper essentials from award-winning, organic and sustainable Irish brand VOYA, a disposable bath towel and a menu to choose additional amenities.
