This blog comes after me reading an article that EK was hiring people in the Miami area to work for the airline. The article appeared about two weeks ago and Miami was one of three US cities were EK was hiring, the others being Seattle and Houston. Does this indicate that a MIA-DXB service is approaching?

Well it is bound to happen sometime. But do you have a source where you read this?

EK have for years had hiring drives and sessions around the world. The locations of these drives is not a good way of determining where they will fly next.

Emirates to Miami will likely happen in 18-24 months, IMO, but this is zero indiciation of that.

Miami, like Seattle, is a mecca for aviation-related careers, and airlines come to job fairs frequently to hire aviation professionals.

Yep! IIRC, they were in MIA a few weeks ago; probably looking for Spanish and Portuguese speakers.

I would argue Miami is the second biggest aviation town in the US after Seattle when it comes to jobs especially pilot jobs, so it makes sense they are looking for pilots in those large cities. So as said, this is no indication of EK coming but it will happen just not sure when.

Man, I would welcome that any time! Getting from Asia to MIA / FLL is always such a pain and it involves minimum 2 connections (for a good price, which is never the case if you fly on a European carrier).

I am sure that the DXB-MIA route would be a success and a logical addition to the network (some of the other major cities are well served; ATL has DL direct flights). I hear that EK gets lots South FL traffic on its JFK-DXB flights.

But will MIA likely be served before the likes of ORD or IAD? I mean considering those two cities are already well served to the region.

From what most of the experts on this board say, MIA will probably be EK's next destination in the US, followed by DFW, ORD and SEA.

Please correct me if I'm mistaken here.

EK is doing recruiting in cities including Memphis, FEDEX has people certified for many airline functions. But EK is no where close to flying there, I doubt they ever would. MEM needs to recruit BA or another non-Skyteam airline for service to Europe.

It does sound logical looking at their network, provided that there is enough demand. In any case it seems EK has enough aircraft to operate new routes looking at the rate of new aircraft deliveries to EK throughout the year and for the coming years.

I have heard SEA, MIA, DFW, ORD, and IAD are being considered. In what order, I dont think any of us can really know.

Houston was EK's second US destination and opened sometime ago. I am not sure why additional hires would make that much news unless they are thinking expansion.

on the LHR-DXB flight too....I was on the AA MIA-LHR a few weeks ago and I was sandwiched next to an indian party of 19 that were transferring to EK at LHR.

They were doing MIA-LHR-DXB-BOM

EK is always thinking expansion!!! A friend of mine (pilot of EK) said that MIA is one of the routes that the company is considering. I definitly dont doubt that, even if my friend said the same about MEX.

Well EK hires staff from all around the world, salary is tax free and good benefits like accomodation are provided for free, so a lot of expats are willing to relocate to DXB.

I, personally based on nothing but my opinion, would order it 1-ORD, 2-MIA, 3-IAD, 4-SEA, 5-DFW.

But the bottom line is that all five, along with EWR, will most likely see Emirates at some point in the next 2-3 years.

How so? Where in Asia are you going to? From MIA, you should be able to catch LH/AF/BA and get to virtually anywhere in Asia with just one stop, right?

Hey if EK does Dubai to IAH then it must fly right over Florida at some point every day.

My dad does that flight every month. He says they usually fly over Detroit, Quebec, cut Greenland in Half and come down over Finland.

I fly at least 3 times a year to IAH both from DXB and DOH and it nevers passes over Florida.
Actually from IAH it goes norteast, over tenesse then head NYC and along all the coast until it reaches south of Greenland, then it goes down, enters europe somewhere near Denmark/Germany, goes east until Turkey and Iraq and it reaches the Gulf.

So if EK flow from MIA would it cross the Atlantic and Africa or would it do a detour to the north pole and then go south? How long would a MIA-DXB flight be?

That is becoming less and less the case - just ask your pilot friend at EK. For any number of reasons that I don't want to get into here it is becoming harder and harder for them to get the staff they need both in the front of the plane and in the cabin.
