EK have over 100 A380s. There are no plans to completely remove them. They don't have enough B777s to cover once things start to pick up again.

Moe A380s are scheduled to come online towards the end of the year - but who knows if that will actually happen?

I believe the latest projections keep A380s in the fleet at least through the 20s.

I was watching a documentary on the A380 and EK is one of the airlines which have actually made its successful for them.

Aside from the JFK-DXB route, have any other US routes seen the new F?

Several markets have seen one-offs, but not on a consistent, scheduled basis.

I know it feels like London is part of the US sometimes, but as far as I'm aware we haven't officially made the switch yet :P

Has anyone seen this seat map before? Its coming up on EK 656 DXB to MLE on January 27th. Is this a glitch? Cause it only seems to do it on this day.

Well, it's the right amount of seats for New F, though I'd agree the ordering is odd.

This is how new F appears which makes this stranger.

Wow that's really odd. What does the seatmap on the EK website show?

Crew rest for a back to back?

I have quite regularly seen 1K ‘missing’ which turned out to a crew rest, so I think a ‘double crew seat’ is a possibility. Strange to choose one of the middle seats though.
