Just a heads up to all the spotters in Sao Paulo and the rest that want to now.
Emirates will launch their new direct service from DXB-GRU tomorrow 1 October 2007.
Emirates will operate a B777-200LR A6-EWA on the first flight.
Schedules are as follows. All times UTC.
Dep DXB 0600 ARR GRU 2130
Dep GRU 0425 Arr DXB 1905
Flying time for tomorrows DXB-GRU flight will be more or less 14H29min
I did not mix the schedule up as I was refering to UTC times and not local times.
The flying time of 14H29min was based on the flying time I got from the flight plan.
U are refering to the block time of 15HRS 30MINS.

Does this new route make EK be the first airline to have non stop flights to all continents (exl Antactica, duh!) ?
I can't think of any other airline who does, maybe Malaysian but they make a stop over in South Africa before flying to South America.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
