Emirates to start A380 flights to Islamabad

Emirates and Pakistan have a shared history tracing back more than 30 years: The airline's first flight went from Dubai to Karachi on October 25, 1985.

You can walk about economy class, business and first class cabins and get a taste of how your journey might feel.

You can turn the cabin mood lighting on or off but don't bother pressing any of the buttons on the seats - they don't do anything.

Instead Emirates has become first airline to introduce Virtual Reality (VR) technology on its digital platform which you can use when booking your flights or simply having a nosey around the cabin.

One week of Sanju: Movie set to enter Rs 200 cr club
The Rajkumar Hirani directorial has crossed over 200 crores in a week and is running strong at the box office. It is heard that Sanjay Dutt's daughter Trishala is upset with the way the film was made.

The high-quality 3D-generated graphics are now available for the three-class Emirates A380 but will soon include renderings of Emirates' entire fleet including all configurations of the A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft, the carrier said. Users can enjoy hands-free cabin navigation and seat selection by using any VR headset such as Google Cardboard. No plug-ins or external apps will be needed to make use of the feature.

This tool allows customers to navigate from one seat to another and to book their preferred seats from within the 3D environment.

They've also added new product videos that portray the travel experience in every cabin, highlighting the airline's unique features.

"We are proud to bring our flagship A380 aircraft to Islamabad", said Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, divisional senior vice president Commercial Operations Center at Emirates. The 3D seat models were created in partnership with Renacen who were awarded the Crystal Cabin for the best visionary concept for this project at the recent Crystal Cabin Awards. Usability studies with frequent flyers and customers from around the world are ongoing with a view to further enhancing the user experience.
