Air India will operate 4 extra sections to Dubai this week to deal with the additional peak season demand on the route.

01.09 AI5771 BOM DXB 0700 0820 EX A310
01.09 AI5772 DXB BOM 0920 1345 FR A310

02.09 AI5717 BOM DXB 0700 0810 EX B742
02.09 AI5718 DXB BOM 0910 1325 FR B742

02.09 AI5771 BOM DXB 0800 0920 EX A310
02.09 AI5772 DXB BOM 1020 1445 FR A310

04.09 AI5717 BOM DXB 0800 0920 EX A310
04.09 AI5718 DXB BOM 1020 1445 FR A310

The flights will operate with a single class of service offered. The aircraft will be ferried back to Mumbai empty.

Air India already operates 19 weekly direct flights between Mumbai and Dubai, in addition to services to Dubai from Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Kochi, Kozhikode, Thiruvananthapuram and Goa.

It's great to see Air India expanding it's frequency to Dubai..but I have a question: why will the aircraft be ferried back to BOM rather than have a regular, scheduled flight? If this is a stupid question please forgive me, I'm not familiar with it.

Looking at the booked loads for those days, all the DXB-BOM flights are wide open (while BOM-DXB are ridiculously oversold). In a situation like that, you save a lot of costs by operating an empty ferry back rather than a virtually empty passenger flight.
