All Airbus A380s contain at least 300 economy seats, fewer business seats and even fewer first-class seats. The aircraft has around 14 bathrooms and as many or more galleys. Some airlines have A380s with the first-class section on the lower deck. Several of the airlines have seating arrangements with bassinets.

Air France's A380 contains a fourth seating section, premium economy, which has slightly larger seats than economy. The aircraft has 389 economy seats, most of which are on the lower deck; 38 premium economy seats on the upper deck; 80 business seats, which are angled and considerably larger than economy seats; and nine first-class seats, which are almost three times the size of economy seats.

Emirates uses A380s targeted toward business and first-class travelers. The entire upper deck is devoted to these sections, and some of the business sections come with beds. The first-class seats are closed rooms that also have beds. Emirates has two versions of its A380, with the only difference being the number of economy seats.
