By doing away with first class, instead having just two classes on the new airliners — business and economy — Emirates has seats for 615 passengers. That’s 98 more than the A380 can accommodate with a first class.

Emirates’ new Airbus A380-800s have seats for 615 passengers.

Removing first class as well as 18 business class seats allowed for 13 additional rows of 10 economy seats each.

Emirates unveiled the new A380s at the Dubai Airshow.

The A380-800 is the biggest passenger plane in the skies.

Emirates joins several other airlines in the effort to add even more seats — and therefore even more revenue — to its airplanes. However, because Emirates removed first and business seats, there is no decrease in legroom for the economy seats.

The gigantic passenger plane will begin service between Dubai, UAE, and Copenhagen, Denmark, next month.
