Hey Plane Holland,
Sorry for my last post, I now actually feel sorry for Amsterdam. I know how it feels to lose flights, my 2nd home airport Geneva in Switzerland (where I used to live) has lost nearly all of its flights over the past few years!
Goodbye SR-LX MD-11 / 6th of March 1991 to the 31st of October 2004

Plane Holland, I disagree with you. AMS hasn't lost many long haul flights operated by foreign airlines lately (the last two years). US returned to AMS and CO started AMS service last year (and you don't mention we've BR instead of TG). Moreover, SQ will start AMS-ORD in August and maybe (still a big maybe) TAM will come to AMS in the near future. Yes, in the past we lost some airlines (like you've mentioned), but doesn't RJ still fly to AMS?? I can't understand to importance of losing a AMS-JFK flight (I rather see an adiitional CO B767-400 or B777).
Anyway, allthough I would like it I don't expect EK at AMS. Currently AMS-DXB is served by KLM twice daily and the market probably can't sustain more flights (allthough the SriLankan option looks viable).
