How Does Emirates' Skywards Work?

Which Plane Will Fly On the EK243 Route?

First of all there won’t be an Airbus A380 deployed on this route. Emirates intends to fly EK243 with its classic ULR Boeing 777-300ER configuration. These Boeing 777-300ERs are capable of carrying in a 3 class configuration just shy of 360 passengers. Specifically the Emirates 777-300ER features:

  • 8 First Class Suites
  • 42 Lie-Flat Beds
  • 304 Economy Class Seats

Keep in mind that the EK 777 offers a 2-3-2 business class configuration. This means that window and central seats that don’t have clear aisle access. While economy class has a 3-4-3 layout. So it tends to be a quite densely configured aircraft for URL flights when compared to other operators.
