Empty seats at Emirates

Emirates' Economy Class customers can now enjoy even more personal space and privacy onboard with the ability to purchase up to three empty adjoining seats on their flight.
These seats will be offered to all Economy Class customers holding a confirmed booking. Customers will not be able to pre-book empty seats, as these are subject to availability. Empty seats will only be offered for purchase at the airport check-in counter prior to flight departure, and costs range from US$55 to US$165 per empty seat, plus applicable taxes depending on flight sector.

Smart flyers of course would have checked the airline’s web site already to see what is likely to become available.
Emirates already currently offers a variety of seat products for Economy Class customers to choose their favourite seat based on their travel needs:
•    Extra legroom seats: exit row seats offering additional space but subject to safety requirements.

•    Twin seats: seats in a row of two at the back of Emirates' Boeing 777 aircraft, and on the upper deck of Emirates' two-class Airbus A380 aircraft.

•    Preferred seats: seats in the first section of the cabin and on the upper deck of A380 two-class.

•    Regular seats: all other Economy seats.
These seats are available on the airline’s website, at airport check-in, onboard and travel agent partners.  They are offered for free or at a charge, depending on the customer's Emirates Skywards membership tier, fare type, time to departure and other special needs.
