LH no longer serves DXB with A 343s...its now B 744s for them....have they started Munich-DXB A 343 services?
A 343s SWISS brings to DXB and then onwards to KHI.
KLM B 767/ B 747-300
AF A 330-200
AZ MD 11 / B 763
BA B 772
What is the reason for VIRGIN ATLANTIC not flying to DUBAI...obviously there is something in the DXB-UK-DXB sector for BA to fly dbl daily and EK 8 times daily that too 6 a day (3 each) to LHR and LGW with B 777-200/300s!!!
VS would do well from DXB if flies their A 346s there daily. It could then get the connecting traffic from PAK-INDIA-SRI LANKA-Arab region etc as well!

Boeing took over 17 A340s from SQ. They placed three with Cathay Pacific rather early, and sent some to Khalifa, but they have now been returned (Khalifa aircraft). Two aircraft have been sent to Gulf Air, and two to SriLankan (?). So with six to EK, Boeing probably has four A340s left.

I don't know about the other stored ex-SIA Airbus Industrie A340-300X, but the two examples which are currently present at Hamburg (HAM) are in very poor conditions. It would take a few months to do the necessary checks and bring them into a conditions that a premium airline like Emirates requires.
Btw, AFAIK these six A340 for Emirates are still a rumour.
