Good news, only thing is the schedule?

Arriving at 0705hrs into DXB doesn't give the route much scope for connecting traffic to Europe. Many flight to Europe ex DXB leave between 7am and 8am.

Can't imagine this will attract much premium traffic with a schedule like that!
Will be interesting to see how this one performs.

The timing is all to do with HND's insistance of all long-haul flights arriving and departing between 2200 - 0700.
But no-one saw this route coming !

Is the flight focussed on business to and from Europe anyway? A stop in DXB seems backtracking to me...

It may not be ideal, but there are still many connecting flights (specifically, to Europe, Africa, and the Middle East) that leave DXB 0805*-1030, although most to Europe are before 9am. The 0930 departure to HND will be fed from a growing number of cities. (* Assuming 45 MCT.)

with DXB MCT at 75 mins, first suitable connection would be 820am.

connections look OK to me, considering 350am NRT arrival gets the earlier ones.

Also, for example, 0820 to LGW (EK15).

Aircraft: B777-200LR

Is the aircraft used in between US flights? It always seems odd for Emirates to operate these flights when they aren't that long haul. From the hot temperatures in HND during the summer, it makes me wonder if they will change to the A343 or A345 in the summer.

Or will NRT and HND and KIX all be upgraded to the A380?

I think DXB gets a fair bit hotter than HND in summers....but the 77L isn't used exclusively on ULR flights anyway on EK's network so I think HND is a good fit in the 77L's daily runs.

The current B77L routes are

DXB SEA
DXB DFW
DXB GIG EZE
DXB PER
DXB LIS
DXB HAM
DXB GVA (not daily)

as well as some occasional subs.

The B77L for the HND route will be sourced from the PER route, which will go thrice daily B77W.

I presume the 77L is due to the product, which is possibly the closest in EK's fleet to the A380 offering. And that choice makes me think that EK is targeting more about the front, than the back of the bus for this route.

I wonder if they are chasing this market a bit? Not the most direct route, but not the least either - about 700nm longer than going via LAX.

I guess we didn't see this coming. This is the first city after London that is serviced to different airports with EK, isn't it? I wonder how long it will take to someone ask for a DXB-EWR since it is such a hassle to get from JFK to the West side of Manhattan

I am sure they do. Most passengers would avoid transiting through the US at all costs if it is only 700 nm longer for such a long flight. Anyway, it will be more important the transit time and cost. Even if you are Japanese and can do it with a ESTA, you will likely go through Dubai with no passport control, TSA or questions.

Sure we did.

Back in May 2012 Japan and UAE agreed on the following effective June 2013.

Abu Dhabi – Tokyo Haneda 1 new daily flight designation
Abu Dhabi – Tokyo Narita increases from 1 to 2 daily

Dubai – Tokyo Haneda 1 new daily flight designation
Dubai – Tokyo Narita increases from 1 to 2 daily

In addition Tokyo Haneda was designated also for cargo service up to 6 times a week, used either between Abu Dhabi or Dubai.


Soon I would look at Etihad to announce its own increased Tokyo service.

I am very surprised that they have not launched EWR yet. The Indian community in new jersey is HUGE.

Although both are classed as NYC airports, they serve very different markets. It almost makes EWR entirely unrelated to JFK.

Will the NRT flights be kept? In other words NRT and HND for EK?!?

ps:

Late edit: Yes I saw this:

With EK fly to both airports? When for 2X/day to NRT?

Indeed yes, as per a previous post Tokyo is the second city after London to see EK in two seperate airports. 380 to NRT and 77L to HND.

   Thank you. I'm not surprised EK will see the demand, I am a bit at EK's growth without another new city to Europe or Africa. One disadvantage of a 'high connecting hub' is that seats in must be matched with seats out (to a certain tolerance, of course).

This implies decent premium demand from Tokyo, which surprises me. (My brother contracted to Sony and they flew him Y across the Pacific multiple times per year.) So an A380 plus a 77L is quite a few premium seats. Ok, quite a few Y, but that cabin should be easy for EK to fill.

Quoting cipango (Reply 17):

Easy mistake to make due to how EK advertises their hub. The reality is that gate and runway congestion have forced a broadening of their hub waves. I particularly enjoy this thread on the DXB hub:

Emirates At DXB - Ultimate Operational Analysis (by HB-IWC Sep 27 2010 in Civil Aviation)

Naturally we all defer to HB-IWC's analysis of DXB/EK. Looking at that analysis, this flight arrives HND-DXB at about the mid-point of the 7am to 11am departure wave. (8:20 am onward, as noted actually allows almost 2/3rds of the connections; albeit many do not make sense from a route perspective such as the Americas, SE Asia, and Australia/New Zealand).

Exactly. EWR has a pool of separate O&D to many global markets, including India, which EK should capture. There's a reason EWR is the only market from which U.S. carriers can fly nonstop to India and make enough of a profit to keep the flights while ORD, ATL etc. have been axed.

Unless its changed recently, you will go through security, with its attendant delays. If not for that a MCT of 60 min would be easy and 45 min not impossible.
