Emirates aircraft are synonymous with luxury, offering premium-class passengers shower on board and a bar while cruising at 30,000 feet.The world's biggest long-haul airline outlined details of a new premium economy seat that it plans to help stem "leakage" of passengers who can't afford business but want a comfortable ride to competing airlines.The carrier is introducing the seats on all of its new A380 and 777s from 2020 and plans to retrofit the seats onto some aircraft already in its fleet, Emirates President Tim Clark said. The Dubai-based carrier's A380s will have about 56 such seats in the front of the bottom deck of the aircraft while the 777s will have between 26 and 28 .Premium economy seats have arrived in recent years in carriers from Singapore Airlines Ltd. to American Airlines Inc. as customers want more space and frills for a little extra, but aren't willing to fork out for business class.
