Social distancing on aircraft ‘nice’ but unrealistic: Emirates

Emirates airline said on Thursday it was unrealistic to establish social distancing on aircraft by leaving seats empty to curb the spread of coronavirus, as the cost would be too high to bear.

The Middle East’s largest carrier, which operates a fleet of 270 wide-bodied aircraft, halted operations in late March as part of global shutdowns to help contain the virus.

Emirates resumed operations two weeks later on a limited network and plan to fly to 58 cities by mid-August, down from about 157 before the crisis.
