does anyone know what dates SFO and JFK are starting up? I know the frequencies are SFO 6x Weekly, and JFK Daily, but what are the start up dates?

Possibly never. Currently the UAE does not comply with FAA regulations requiring an independent oversight committee.

Currently, EK is owned by the same group that governs safety in Dubai.

Earlier on in July, there was a story that since DXB's Airport security does not meet FAA requirements, EK will not be allowed to fly "nonstop" from DXB to USA, it could however via a European city.

In anycase, officially SFO-JFK were supposed to have begun this JUNE but due to the fall out of the IRAQ WAR, the proposed launch is suspended till next May 04.

Why cant EK instead come to YYZ first if USA is giving them problems? They will mint money out of YYZ as no Arab or Indian carrier comes to YYZ so they can pick up a large chunk of pax bound for Arabia and the Indian subcontinent + Thailand-Singapore-Malaysia!

EK will be a serious threat to AC-BA-LH-KLM-AZ-AF out of YYZ as these airlines rely too on transit traffic from YYZ for the regions I mentioned above! EK can also from YYZ get pax who are based in YUL and Ottawa-Hamilton!

I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. Jerome K Jerome

I belive Transport Canada has almost the same regs as the USA, there is no Govt agency providing oversight for EK, is the UAE Govt..reviewing Itself, so untill they change that they can not fly to the USA..the Govt of Maylasia regulates MH so they are ok to fly non-stop DXB-EWR..it is not the airport security at DXB that is the problem...I am sure someone in DXB is working to solve this soon..but SHJ and the rest make lots of money from open skies with all countries so mabe they want to keep it that way..I don't know the policy of the UAE but they are smart people..they are working to be the Singapore (the hub) of the Mid East and India, cool place  Smile
