01.12.22

In this post, we will provide you with everything that you need to know about the Emirates seat selection process. We will discuss how to choose your seat when booking your flight with Emirates Airlines and what type of seats are available on each class level.
Seat Options Offered by Emirates
Emirates offers a wide range of seat options for passengers, including first class, business class, and economy class. First-class seats are the most expensive, but they offer the most privacy and comfort. Business class seats are more affordable and offer more legroom than economy seats. Economy seats are the least expensive option available from Emirates.
Emirates offers a wide range of seats to suit your needs.
Economy class: This Emirates Airlines Economy class is divided into the following categories of fares:
Economy Class Economy Class seats are available in rows 1 to 4, and rows 25 to 28. This is the most affordable way to fly with Emirates, but it's still pretty great! You'll have plenty of legroom and can watch movies on the screens above your head.
Emirates Regular Seats Options
Emirates is the world's largest international airline and offers a wide range of options for frequent flyers. They have three different types of regular seats on their aircraft:
Exit row seats are located at the rear of the cabin, near the emergency exit doors. These seats have extra legroom and can be reclined a little more than other seats in economy class.
Aisle seats are usually located near the middle of the cabin, and they give you more space than window or middle seats. The downside is that they don't have direct access to overhead compartments or bathrooms—you'll have to walk past other passengers to get there!
Window seats are located on either side of the aisle (one on each side), allowing you to see out of your window without having to disturb anyone else by getting up out of your seat. You'll also have access to overhead compartments and bathrooms without having to disturb other passengers!
Emirates Preferred Seats Options
They offer two options for Preferred Seats:
Emirates Preferred Seats - Get the best possible seat on your flight with Emirates Preferred Seats. You'll get a guaranteed seat of your choice, plus special perks like an extra baggage allowance, lounge access, and more.
Emirates Skywards Silver / Gold Preferred Seat - If you fly frequently with Emirates and have achieved Silver or Gold status with our frequent flyer program, then you can enjoy a complimentary preferred seat on all Emirates flights.
The Emirates Preferred seat option can be used as a way to ensure you have a seat you prefer during your flight. It offers the following in-flight services:
Seat selection (preferred seat, window, or aisle)
Guaranteed seat allocation to a specific seat of choice on board for all sectors booked in Economy Class
Priority check-in, boarding, and baggage handling at the gate
Access to the lounges of Emirates Skywards Gold and Silver members
Emirates Extra Legroom Seats Options
The Emirates extra legroom seat is available on all aircraft and has been designed to offer a more spacious travelling experience for passengers who require extra space.
The additional legroom can be selected during the booking process or at the time of flight check-in. The price will vary depending on the cabin type, and whether you are travelling with children or seniors.
Depending on availability, there may be a limited number of seats on each flight with this option, so please make sure to check with us before making your booking.
Emirates Seat selection fees
Emirates will automatically assign you a seat selection at no cost if you have specific needs, for example, if you are traveling with an infant or if you have medical requirements.
In Economy Class, it may be free of charge to select your seat in advance, or there could be an additional fee depending on the fare type or your Emirates Skywards membership tier.
Reserve ahead to ensure your preferred spot or select a Regular, Preferred, or Twin seat for free when online check-in opens 48 hours before your flight.
How to Select Seats on Emirates Airlines?
There are several ways to select seats on Emirates flights. You can reserve them in advance, and you can also change them once you're on the plane, depending on availability.
Reserving Seats
If you want to reserve seats, you'll need to do so when you Book Emirates Flight. The best time to do this is when you purchase your ticket online because it's easy to see all of the available options at once. You'll find a section called "seat selection" where you can choose your seats and pay for them at the same time. If you purchase your ticket at an airport or by phone, then you'll have to call in later with your credit card information for payment.
When reserving seats online, there are three main options: standard seats (which give you a bit more legroom), preferred seats (which offer extra legroom), and exit row seats (which are more spacious). You can also choose whether or not you want window or aisle seating—or if there's any other special request that needs to be accommodated (such as being close enough to help someone with disabilities).
If you're flying with Emirates, you might need to select your seats in advance. Here's how:


    [li]Go to the Emirates website and click on "Booking" at the top of the screen.[/li]
