Emirates on January 01 will upgauge its second daily JFK rotation from the current B77W to an A388 and will then operate twice daily A388s on its busy DXB JFK route. Schedule from January 01 will be as follows:

EK201 DXB JFK 0830 1350
EK202 JFK DXB 2300 2030+1

EK203 DXB JFK 0200 0720
EK204 JFK DXB 1040 0810+1

The addition of a second daily JFK roundtrip with A388 will be made possible by up to 9 aircraft to be delivered by the end of 2012. EK, which currently operates 21 A380s, is expected to take 3 aircraft each in September and October and may receive up to another 3 frames in November and December.

Current EK A380 destinations include YYZ, JFK, LHR, MAN, CDG, FCO, MUC, JED, JNB, BKK, KUL, HKG, PEK, PVG, ICN, SYD and AKL. Upcoming A380 destinations include NRT (from July), AMS (from August) and MEL (from October).

Kudos to Emirates. They're possibly expanding amazingly out there.

Slightly off topic, ive heard they aren't one of the best management there.
Nevertheless its working for them!

Keep flying, because the sky is no limit!

"up to 9" is very good wording.

The two next A 380s for EK - MSN 101 and 103 - have been ferried to TLS instead of being delivered ex XFW, obviously to make the preliminary wing modification works, and they will not be delivered until September 2012 (almost 4 months later than planned).

If they intend to do the same for the remaining seven A 380s I don't see how they can deliver them until end of 2012:
MSN 105 - EK #24 - A6-EDX - 2012-Q3 - in XFW for outfitting and painting since 28-02-2012
MSN 106 - EK #25 - A6-EDY - 2012-Q3 - in XFW for outfitting and painting since 10-04-2012
MSN 107 - EK #26 - A6-EDZ - 2012-Q3 - in XFW for outfitting and painting since 26-04-2012
MSN 109 - EK #28 - A6-EEB - 2012-Q4 - in XFW for outfitting and painting since 11-05-2012
MSN 108 - EK #27 - A6-EEA - 2012-Q4 - rollout from FAL on 23-03-2012, still in TLS *)
MSN 110 - EK #29 - A6-EEC - 2012-Q4 - rollout from FAL on 13-04-2012, still in TLS
MSN 111 - EK #30 - A6-EED - 2012-Q4 - rollout from FAL on 30-05-2012, still in TLS

Unless other long haul airlines can summon up the cash to buy A380s we will shortly see Emirates being the world's national airline.

I like their drive, ambition and vision.

Congratulations to JFK in having more A380 flights.

For that to happen they would need more than just one hub.

So far, logistically, it's a simple operation. Add in multiple hubs and it's a whole new ballgame.

So how does the utilization work (if that is the right term)? The 380 lands at 13:50, stays parked 9 or so hours and then flies back to DXB? How many aircraft does it take to run this route per each flight number?

I don't believe EK ever operated the 77L to JFK. I may be wrong, though.

Slightly off topic, wasn't EK talking about adding a third daily flight to JFK?

I think if you added up all the scheduled passenger-kilometers flown on the top 10 airlines alone other than EK.....

i.e 1.3 billion in 2011 to EK's 143 million.....

They have quite a way to go yet before they could justify that accolade....

Maybe the worlds' 'favourite' airline....

Oh no....that's been done.

That's an odd statement to say the least.

They are a rapidly growing airline based in a very volatile part of the world. A part of the world that many still consider too dangerous to travel to. Also, a part of the world that is not very nice to various ethnic groups, women, gays, religious groups, etc.

All of that will prevent Emirates from being the "worlds national airline."

Of which Emirates are you talking about? We are talking about the Emirates from Dubai but you are obviously refering to another airline, maybe from Afghanistan.

Whoa scary talk, I guess a bit like Washington then, or parts of Miami, or Springfield, MA. Sorry, just trying to bring in some reality here. Unless they are actually flying those 380's empty because people are too scared to go to Dubai, now that would be showing off.

Awesome news! Gonna be nice to have a shower before landing in the morning, either in New York or Dubai, rather than in the middle of the day or the evening, as it currently is with 202/201. I usually fly 203 on my way home from India, as it is more convenient to have the morning arrival, and now it will be more exciting than the regular old 77W. Great job to Emirates! Can't wait! Perfect timing also, as I am booked to fly EK203 on Jan 2nd!

I had read that the modifications will be incorporated in the build programme of the A380s which should mean delivery as normal, or with smaller delay than now. Not sure when this will start though and whether this will be in time for EK's aircraft later in 2012.

Have you been there? I feel much safer in Dubai than in Detroit.

It's about time for second A380, it'll save a work day for many arriving in the morning.

Unfortunately, this still takes some time. Currently, Airbus is waiting for approval for the new wings and will be only able to start building wings in the (hopefully) final version as of end of 2012. Given the production time of about one year between production of the wings and delivery, this means that starting from end of 2013 Airbus will be able to deliver A 380s without any additional modification works.

All A 380s being delivered until end of 2013 will require the modification works (i.e. all the nine A 380s mentioned above).

You do have a point.

And those that don't consider it too dangerous i.e your typical holidaymaker.... are rather ignorant of the realities hence the terrible reports in the press of people ending up in the slammer.....(or worse)
