I know NY is hard hit by the economic slump but seems logical that a important city should deserve the 380. Was wondering if there is any chance of EK starting back it to JFK?

If they want to use all their A380s on order, they need to eventually bring it back to NYC. They may have just brought it there too soon for the demand, and then when demand slacked off, it wasn't economical.


Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

It might take another year, to review the possibility of the A380's return to JFK...as long as the economy has consistent improvement.

Not in the near future as far as I know (unless there's a sudden surge in demand), but definitely in the medium term.

Removing the A380 from the DXB-JFK route was just a temporary measure. It may have looked bad, but it made perfect sense given the crisis. Eventually, I have no doubt the A380 will return to JFK. Let me also add that over the years the A380 will be deployed and pulled off certain routes all over the place. It makes sense to flexibly deploy the A380s where and when there is demand, not to deploy it simply because it looks good to do so.
Eventually, EK will assign the A380 to practically every single route-and most cities in the network will need something the size of an A380 if only for a few flights per week.

I don't see where it looked bad at all. It is EK's decision, as with any airline, where to deploy it's aircraft for what is required. No city in the world has a 'given right' to any particular aircraft.

I thought they pulled it off the route to get more seat on the YYZ run to show the Canadian government it deserves daily flights?



Little airports with the big jets are the best!! Floyd

Except, of course, London and the A380.  Wink
