The head of Emirates dreams of an airplane without windows

Tim Clark has already talked about how the Airbus giant, the A380, of which Emirates has a lot in its fleet, could be improved. At that time, the focus was mainly on the choice of materials and new engines, and now he threw in the omission of windows.

According to him, these could be replaced with cameras and screens that could show the outside world or anything else to the passengers.

Passengers can already experience a similar initiative, on a smaller scale, in the first class of Emirates’ refurbished 777s, virtual windows have been placed in the middle cabins – writes the specialist portal.

You don’t have to bury the giant machines just yet

According to Tim Clark, there would be a need for giant planes in the medium and long term because aviation is constantly developing. The two-engine wide-bodies available after the end of production of the large four-engines, such as the new-generation Boeing 777X or Airbus A350, do not have enough capacity due to limited airports and slots.

Based on his vision, an expansion of 4, 5 or even 6 percent is expected in the coming years, not around the 3 percent included in the general estimate, and it will be difficult to meet this with the types currently in production.
