    Emirates’ new premium economy seat will be a brand new custom design, which CEO Tim Clark has described as a ‘sleeperette’, reports Australian Business Traveller.

    The bespoke design has been built to the airline’s specification following a competition among seat manufacturers to create a design based on the airline’s vision.

    The result will be something similar to a railway-style ‘sleeperette’ with about 38 inches of pitch (up to 6 inches more than economy) and a 10 inch recline.

    Speaking to the Australian website, Clark said the seat will fully cradle the legs and feet while offering a deep recline.

    The design team is currently working on the final touches, including choosing the best footrest design to deal with the “bodies and ergonomics of the higher-percentile male and female.”

    The ‘sleeperette’ mode of the seat may be “something like lazy-Z”, he confirmed, but not within a shell.

    The premium economy cabin will be separate from the economy class cabin by more than just a curtain in order to offer a sense of exclusivity. It will also have its own toilets.

    Clark also stressed that the cabin will be an upgrade of economy rather than a downgrade of business. Therefore, lounge access won’t be provided.
