There's been more adjustments to the summer schedule with capacity being transferred from Asia Pacific and Australia to Africa and Europe. The changes apply for the period 1 June-30 September. Essentially frequencies maintained but acft changed. Notable changes include:

-SIN/MEL downgraded from B773 to A332
-FCO/MXP/NCE upgraded from A332 to B772
-NBO/DAR/EBB upgraded from A332 to B773 (on both flights!)
-DAC/KUL and KUL/JKT upgraded from B772 to B773
-BKK/HKG downgraded from B773 to B772 and B772 to A332

Any chance for them to increase their frequencies into KUL? Read from a local daily that they are planning to increase its frequency into KUL. Thanx!

Hey, when were Emirates going to launch AKL? Are they waiting for the A340-500 or is there a chance they might serve it via SYD?

SIN-MEL going down to A332? Has traffic gone down this much?? I know sometimes they change between the 772 and 773 but wow down to the A332. Well at least be good to see a new plane down here in MEL.

No immediate plans for a frequency upgrade although do expect extra flights over the course of the summer to cater for the tourist demand. The 773 is due to be downgraded again to 772 effective 1 October so you may get additional frequencies then, subject to acft availability. I think by next year KUL frequencies will likely increase again regardless as the route is showing good growth in pax and cargo year round.

Emirates want to fly to AKL today as an extension of their SYD or MEL service, but the Australian govt. won't grant them the traffic rights. Sheilkh Ahmed ibn Saeed Al Maktoum, the Emirates Chairman, went to Australia a few weeks ago to press for greater access into Australia as well as access to trans Tasman services. Going into the meeting he wasn't very hopeful of getting any joy on the latter.

I doubt they will operate a dedicated A340-500 service to AKL. As it is the A340-500 will be an expensive aircraft to operate and routes where it is likely to enter service on eg. Sydney and Osaka will see their average fares go up.

The destinations you've mentioned are part of the long-term plans but i don't see them being added anytime in the next couple of years. European routes that are likely to take greater priority include Madrid, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Geneva, Glasgow, Dublin.

Yes loads have dropped substantially largely due to SARS. The situation is compounded by the fact that it is also a seasonally slower time of the year. Also they cannot downgrade to 772 because these acft are needed to operate the long-range routes like PER, JNB, MNL etc. The 773 would be placed on these routes but they don't have the range unless they take a payload penalty. This is partly why Emirates will order B777-300ERs -- to provide the capacity and range on routes like these.
