Dubai’s Emirates airline now maintains an all-A380 Airbus fleet, following the phase-out of three A330-200 and one A340-300 Airbus planes.

As of 7 November, the airline had 85 A380 in-service planes, including six in two-class configuration, with 57 pending delivery.

The two-class configuration A380 features 615 seats including 58 flatbed seats in business class.

Different variants of Boeing’s 777 comprise the rest of the airline’s in-service fleet, which currently stands at 247.

Emirates has 234 aircraft pending delivery, which carry an estimated value of $112bn.

The airline group’s net profit plunged by 64 per cent in the second and third quarter of 2016, which corresponds to the first half of its fiscal year.
