Really looking forward to some routes in western canada, with YYZ starting up YYC or YVR should not be far in the pipeline.

I hope CPH. Would be obvious to offer all those sun loving Scandinavians tons of onward connections from DBX, if not Dubai itself (SK starts CPH-DBX 31Oct2007).

As many probably know EK already announced this route back in 2005, but bailed out. Some say it was due to equiment shortage others say the cartoon controversy made them change their minds. The demand is definitely there, although mostly leisure I would think.

I still hope an EK a332 would find it's way to CPH.

Hi,

Emirates, as well as Etihad, are in talks at getting gov't approval to start services to ALG. So, DXB-ALG could be a reality in the near future. Currently, only AH serves that route with their A332s.

Cheers,
Imad

the Canadian government has said try the DXB-YYZ route for a year or so and once demand is established they will start offering more frequencies accordingly. this is why i'm thinking 2009 instead of 2008. but who knows maybe the government will grant it sooner

I think destinations like CPH and AMS are very likely, especially AMS is, already said, a very big lack in their network. I also think they are looking into opening service to CCS (could there be any problems?). Also MAD, BCN and LIS should be on there wish list...
Does anyone think EK would open service to OSL and ABZ any time soon?

I would say we will see the following in 2008

DXB-ADL

DXB-CPT/DUR

DXB-LAX OR SFO

DXB-YVR OR YYC (MAYBE BOTH)

DXB-ATQ (NOT SURE IF THIS WAS LAREADY ANNOUNCED?)

DXB-LAD (SUBJECT TO GOVERMENT APPROVAL)

DXB-DKR

DXB-EZE

DXB-MEX

The list goes on and on - just shows EK have a lots more destinations to start!!

DXB-ORD and DXB-LAX are likely a given... as I've said many times before, Tim Clark said that EK would be flying to ORD by now if it weren't for the A380 delays.

I wouldn't be surprised to see EK start DXB-IAD and/or DXB-SFO, either.

Emirates was going to start SFO-DXB about two years ago. It was even loaded into booking systems for a few days.

Emirates to San Francsico, Chicago, Dulles, and Los Angeles in the short term are an absolute given. Also, Emirates service to Vancouver, Miami, Newark, Caracas, and Rio de Janeiro are probably also "a given", but not for at least 3 years. Boston, Detroit, Seattle, and Dallas seem like strong candidates as well.

yes it was going to start in January 2005 with the A 345s nonstop from DXB and the schedules were posted on EK's website in fall 2004 and then disappeared.

definitely one U.S. West Coast city at least will be launched in 2008.

i have a question here for anyone who currently works for EK or has in the past...why hasnt EK ever ventured into the Central Asian markets of Tashkent or Almaty??? especially TAS!!!

As far as Europe goes, I would like to see MAD launched before any other EU destination as I feel that route (DXB-MAD-DXB daily with the A 332) has more potential than CPH/AMS/ARN/OSL/BRU/GVA! The reason why I wrote daily to MAD is because thats EK's new business philosophy if the Spain-UAE bilateral is a liberal one i.e. daily or nothing lol.

Sorry to ask but why more capacity to MEL rather than SYD as SYD is a much larger airport with more passengers.

BNE will almost definetly go 2 x Daily before EY start 1 x daily

In Asia...

They are waiting for slots to open at NRT (2009) and when they open up, I bet EK will be begging for more than one.

I think they could serve CAN, Hanoi, and SGN.

There is no such thing as shortage of aircraft at EK, no matter what the airline claims. Utilization rates of the exisiting fleet is low and EK could get much more out of its active fleet if it wanted. There have been crew related problems on and off, but I don't know whether these have meanwhile been resolved. I guess that "aircraft shortage" sounds sexier than "crew shortage."

CPH-DXB would help all these Danish boys and girls in the UAE Big grin .... and there are definately not a few only....!!!

When I read the title of this thread the first thing I thought was CCS! I believe that it could be a succesful route not only pax-wise, but also cargo. Also, the onward connections to Asia will help them attract some traffic.

If this is true, then they should go via BKK. With the right scheduling, this would allow EK to provide flights from HKG-BKK-SYD and HKG-BKK-MEL immediately.

With the addition of other new flights using BKK as a secondary hub, such as to BKK-PVG and BKK-PEK, then a good network of Asia-Pacific flights could emerge.

Maybe we could even see HKG-SFO or HKG-LAX.
