Emirates Turns A380 Jet Seats Into Shoes for $2B Refit

Emirates is refurbishing its Airbus A380 fleet with a $2 billion investment, aiming to extend the aircraft's lifespan into the 2040s while updating the interior design with fresh carpeting and mood lighting. The renovation generates over 250kg of recyclable seat leather per plane, spawning a limited-edition line of shoes, belts, and backpacks from the material.
