According the their website they´re to start Abu Dhabi - NYC (JFK or EWR?) today, it´s 04:55 CET here.

If anyone passing throu JFK or EWR tomorrow, please take a pic if you can or write what you´ve seen.

The article states:

The aircraft is configured to hold 18 Guests in Diamond zone, 36 Guests in Pearl, and 171 Guests in Coral zone, with a 45 percent average load factor in Pearl and an 82 percent load factor in Coral.

Honestly, I have my doubts about the feasibility of this route. There is likely very limited demand between NYC and AUH, which is where te front cabin is coming from, and all the back is probably to South Asia. I doubt this is profitable, but I'm aware it probably doesn't have to be.

I wouldn't be too sure. Browsing through EY website's booking system, its showing the JFK flight to be full on 29th October, mid December, and first week of Jan both ways. But on the other hand, i am unsure of how reliable the online system is, as in the not too distant past, it wasn't.

On the 29th of this month, EK will start its 3rd JFK flight (via HAM), making a total number of daily flights between UAE and JFK of 4! .. That's a lot if you ask me.
