Quoting MD90fan (Reply 2): Also for DXB it might be to late too jump in with EK and EY both servicing the NYC market. But maybe AUH can be a destination on its own who knows Smile
I'm pretty sure EY are looking at AUH-EWR not DXB-EWR as AUH is their hub. As far as serving the rest of the middle east from TLV there is no way that is going to happens as there are no schedules flights between Israel and most middle eastern countries.
As far as Africa goes, I think it might even be a little tricky breaking into Cairo or Jo'burg.
