AUH-MAA...capacity increased in W13 from daily A320 to daily A321. The latter shall have a capacity of 174 seats on board i.e. 12J + 162Y configuration (expected) !

Interesting, I wonder when they'll announce Jet Airways to launch flights from AUH to the U.S.

second daily EY schedule for BOM and DEL announced. Flights shall be operated with A320s departing AUH at 1530 and arriving back by 2345. Its been uploaded on Sabre for sale !

So basically the 1530 departure from AUH will feed inbound flights from GCC region only + O&D from UAE where as the 2345 arrival will feed its EU and GCC 0100-0230 departure hub wave bank nicely.

2 EY 204Q 11JAN 6 AUHBOM SS1 1535 2030 /DCEY /E

Would be interesting to see if they add more cities to the network. Yeah, the capacity increase they have announced is kind of an expansion...but i was viewing "expansion" more in terms of expanding their footprint over more number of cities.

Quick question folks - will 9W and EY have to file for special permissions with US, Canada and EU for 9W metal to fly from AUH to those countries or will the current agreements in place between UAE and those countries suffice? How does that work?
