All Emirates AKL-DXB To Be Only 1 Stop

Yep, from February looks like all the Emirates flights from Auckland to Dubai will only have one stop (in Australia). We knew about the switch of DXB-BKK-SYD to CHC, but now the DXB-SIN-BNE has become a terminator meaning their knew A345 non-stop to BNE will continue on to AKL.

So, within 20 mins there will be:
A380 DXB-SYD-AKL
A345 DXB-MEL-AKL
A345 DXB-BNE-AKL

With this change they should have connected DXB-SIN-MEL onto AKL and reverted the DXB-MEL-CHC to provide the South Islanders with a one-stop option.

Someone mentioned that EK are restricted to only 4 daily flights across the Tasman. Does anyone have a link for this?

To expand on this question, has anyone done a summary of EK's/Dubai's bilateral rights?

The reason for not doing this is because the current 1 stop service via MEL will change to an A380 at some stage possibly late 2009 early 2010 continuing to AKL. They are trying to get more AKL-Europe traffic by offering all the flights 1 stop to DXB from AKL whereas CHC gets a larger aircraft and a BKK link.

Ex CHC EK started with a MEL service because MEL got extra flights before SYD, once they added a second SYD service it made more sense to fly SYD-CHC where there is more local traffic than MEL.

Not sure on the link but there will be one somewhere. EK would be flying PER-AKL if they could and may have just kept MEL-CHC. I think in the case of PER-AKL they may have also been denied access by the Australian goverment because no Australian airline flies the route, SAA applied and they were denied for this reason I've heard.
