Emirates Airlines Removes First Class Seats

November 4, 2017 ,   Airlines

In a not surprising move, a popular airline decided to do away with first class seats and replace them with tight rows of economy class.

Emirates Airlines is currently testing their business and economy only aircraft on some Airbus A380 during this holiday season due to an "increased consumer demand over the busy Christmas peak season."

This will increase Emirate Airlines' flights to 615 seats per airplane instead of the traditional 489 first class seats. The 126 additional seats will mean more profits for Emirates, but it could also mean that prices will decrease.

Fortunately for those passengers who love first class seats, the airline claims economy filled aircraft are only temporary. Emirates Airlines says they will only be flying these airplanes during busy holiday season.
