Emirates has several different economy products in its fleet with differing seat pitch, width and configurations. All have individual seat back TVs and phones. Newer aircraft offer 10.6" video screens with a USB connection so that you can view pictures and videos from your laptop.
Airbus A330 aircraft have the least amount of legroom, with 31 inches. Airbus A340-300s offer just under 32 inches, while the long-range A340-500, used on Australia services, is mainly just under 32 inches but with some seats offering 33.8 inches. The A380 ranges from just under 32 inches to 33 inches.
The Boeing fleet also varies. Boeing 777-200s offer 33 inches, but, inexplicably, the LR or Long Range version of this aircraft gives only just under 32 inches as do 777-300s that have recently joined the fleet, while older 777-300s offer 33 inches.
Confusingly, Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range) aircraft have a pitch of just under 32 inches to just under 34 inches as do the 777-300ULR (Ultra Long Range) fleet.

This flight was eventually aborted, 7 1/2 hours after us taking off from Tullamarine, after us circling over Ballarat for a couple of hours, dumping fuel in the bay, then sitting on the tarmac for a couple of hours while attempts were made to repair the aircraft. We disembarked, went through... more
