The early morning arrival is sure to happen at some point in time. As EK is further building its DXB hub, European destinations which single service will go double daily and those with double daily service will go triple daily. A thirds service is almost certain to be located in EK's 2am DXB departure hub and would call for a morning arrival at MAN. I haven't heard anything regarding a possible transatlantic extension, though, and I would presume that, for the sake of aircraft utlization, it would be wiser to extend the early afternoon flight with a possible transatlantic tag, a move EK is about to make with its HAM flight.
