Thats what I heard, although there are more 772s available in the network free than A332s. We shall see. Good luck to EK! Good move i think.



What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

That is generally the trend on a new route......... moving onto a 777 as loads increase. But you never know might start with a 777.

PRG is fast becoming a hot tourist destination among the Indian holiday makers...

Way to go, Emirates. Expect nothing less than atleast a daily A330 service.
I'm sure it will do well. However I wonder how this will effect loads to Vienna, as I understand the VIE flights captured feed from Prague.
Here's hoping Copenhagen and Madrid/Lisbon come on board next.

I dont think so ARN and OSL are major EU gateways by any stretch of the imagination and nor has it ever been on EK's radar.

They may not be major EU gateways, but how do you know that have never been on EK's radar?

Not enough high yielding business traffic.

But you could make the same claim regarding PRG which is more of a leisure than a business destination.

Not anymore. The Czech Republic has attracted a lot of companies the last 2 years because it's cheaper then Western Europe. I work now for a company that closed in AMS and is based in BRQ now. And since it's a worldwide multinational we have loads of business traffic to the US / UK and Asia

Very good news for PRG, it will offer a nice increase of capacity there and of course give the spotters a chance to see some new planes there.

Also can't wait to see them here in AMS.



Zanair flight, please hold on finals as we have to clear rhino's off the runway. Next flight: AMS-FRA-AMS

Actually Mr. Tim Clark himself mentioned when he was interviewed by Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten in November that they will focus on Copenhagen for now (and not OSL).

On this we can agree. I was surprised to not see this earlier.

Much of EK's growth is dependent on bilateral rights. I'm under the impression the Swiss rights are maxed out (in terms of frequency). Is that correct? Or could EK fly to GVA as soon as an aircraft is available?

MAD and BCN probably wait on improvement in the Spanish economy.

ARN, CPH, and OSL would be dependent upon bilateral rights?

Quoting EBGflyer (Reply 2):

Do you have any stats on travel to India, middle-east, Asia from CPH? Also, does EK have bilateral rights?

I too wonder why no city in Poland has EK service yet.

Then again, as a transfer hub, that requires rights on the other side of DXB. I see the growth to Australia, BKK, and a few others. It will be interesting to see how EK continues to grow in 2010/2011.

Probably because of weak demand and low yield.

I really think EK has just missed the boat on this one; they had their chance and blew it; EY got in and built up the market and now with the service going to 10 weekly, it's hard to see EK going in, especially when there are still other markets left to develop. Of course, one can't rule it out long term, especially as the Irish economy recovers, but I think EK will just have to chalk it up to experience. DUB could have been theirs and they just let it slip away.

Still, good news for PRG.


25 KL911 : Don't think so. OK has no business what so ever in the gulf. It might even benefit from a codeshare with EK.
26 AirIndia : I guess you are correct. rights have maxed out. IAD? ORD? MIA? ORD has an offline sales office. Most definitely these two should be next. what about
27 MillwallSean : Well I think you are pretty much of base with that assumption. EK has been to all three airports. When Emirates enters Scandinavia is another questio
28 EBGflyer : According to the CPH website the following non-stop unserviced destinations are as follows (pr. 1. jan 2009): The number covers pax that were traveli
29 AirIndia : interesting that DEL is the busiest asian sector out of CPH. Whos got that share? LH? Now thats a lot of potential traffic for EK to ferry to DXB and
30 Abrelosojos : = Or, WRO . Saludos and congrats to EK, A.
31 EBGflyer : Busiest unserved nonstop, yes. I don't know the numbers for the direct flights from CPH to PEK, BKK, SIN, NRT. Lot of potential pax for EK, yes!
32 AirIndia : yes unserved nonstop, but i thought the figures given earlier were CPH-DEL through booked figures.................
33 EBGflyer : They are. But among them you wouldn't find BKK, PEK, SIN, NRT as they are served nonstop routes, which means DEL probably wouldn't make it as the bus
