Hi

I'm due to fly out in mid JAN from Manchester to Karachi on Emirates business class and wanted to know what are the chances of being upgraded to first class ? I would imagine it would be quiet considering its the start to to the new year. Does anyone know ?

Unless Emirates have changed in the last few months, they use the high density A330's which have no first class in them from MAN.

EK were due to operate a 3 class DXB-MAN on a 773, this was postponed at the same time as the second daily DXB-BHX (2003). So as Jamotcx said NO F class ex MAN....J class will have to do!

From what I have heard MAN loads are doing well. As of sometime in Oct (can't remember the date) the following upgrades will be happening for u.k (regional) departures

Man
EK18 upgraded to 773 from A330
EK20 A330

BHX
EK40 upgraded to 772 from A330
EK38 A330

GLA
EK26 upgraded to 773 from A330

Source: Sabre and EK online. & yep this could all change again as Oct is a good few months away yet. Oct also sees PER going x2 second service with a A345. The return flight arrives back to the u.k the same day.

EK3017 is simply an extra. They use to send them in to BHX on the odd occation normally the ex DXB flight is a special charter (EK employees children returning to the u.k for school etc) then they sell seats on the ex UK leg.

Three of this months MAN services are now expected to be 777 (2 x 773 + 1 x 772).

BHX's upgrade is from daily 772 to 2 daily A330; MAN should be seeing 772s from June before 773s takeover in October.
