Emirates will be adding extra frequencies to Johannesburg and Tehran.

Johannesburg gets 3 extra weekly flights from 02 December; daytime departures on Wed, Fri and Sun operated by A330 (low density). JNB has been a strong performer for EK, evidenced by recent deployment of B777-200ERs on the route. The extra freqs is the next step in boosting this route to a double daily.

Tehran gets 3 extra weekly flights from 02 January, late night departures on Wed, Thu and Fri operated by A330 (low density).

The proposed extra daytime flights to CMB will not happen now. Also MLE only gets 2 out of the proposed 3 daytime flights, to be operated on Mon & Wed.

As a result it looks like the next A330 - A6-EAI, due for delivery at the end of November 2001, will be a low density aircraft.

Over the course of 2002, a number of routes will get double dailies on a progressive basis. Routes that are inline for these are LGW, MAN, FRA and MUC.

Interesting and once again good news for the aviation industry from the direction of Dubai. Big grin
Unfortunately I have never flown on Emirates yet but maybe I´ll have the opportunity to travel the whole route from Frankfurt to Sydney with them in 2003 (I know it´s a long time until then but I´m looking forward to it either).

BTW: Now when they seem to plan a huge expansion, I´d like to know whether their flights on those routes, which are going to be upgraded to larger aircraft and/or additional frequencies, are always full or whether they want to get their passengers from other airlines.???

Regards,
Daniel

With MAS going to suspend their flights into Dubai soon, although Dubai is not in the list of the 12 destinations they are going to suspend, but, the KUL-DXB-EWR and KUL-KHI-DXB route is temporarily suspended and the KUL-DXB-IST is going to be suspended, aren't Emirates going to increase their services into Kuala Lumpur? Without MAS, there will be no non-stop service between Dubai and Kuala Lumpur and Emirates's service go via Dhaka if I am not mistaken. From March 2002 onwards, Emirates will be the sole provider for air links between Dubai and Kuala Lumpur and they are not going to expand this market? Will MAS begin flying into Dubai again or is it a loss making destination?

Regards.

Emirates plan to add a string of new destinations as well as boost frequencies across a number routes. Kuala Lumpur was supposed to be upgraded nearly a year ago to a non-stop daily operation. It is likely this will happen over the course of 2002 as more 777s are delivered.

I had put up a msg. a few days ago with potential new destinations.

Emirates should consider ADL. It's an airport that most of the majors shun and isn't that where EK shines??? EK already has a top reputation downunder and would certainly be welcomed by Adelaide residents.

An Emirates pilot told me recently that ADL will be the diversion airport for the forthcoming flights to PER (October 2002).

ADL as a diversion for PER. ADL is 3 hours flight away from Perth...

They cut the direct flight to Hong Kong using the A332's. Now we only get the boring 777's. I need so many of the A332's.

Do you think they will restart the direct flight ??

Agreed with Aussie on the diversion...2 and 1/2 at best.

Port Hedland is more sensible...though can that take a B777?

I dunno whether ADL has a market for a B777. Maybe an A330-200.

Coachman:

1. Port hedland has landed a 744 before (LH, medical emergency) so I imagine a 777 wouldn't be a problem.

2. I agree re: ADL and 777. If I were emirates I would route a A330 through BKK, thus not only offering a connection through to DXB and onward but a new Int'l destination out of Adelaide, one which has significant potential in my opinion. And if EK were to be brave, they would continue the ADL service to AKL - another city pair lacking flights. Hence a A330-200 flight DXB-BKK-ADL-AKL. Interesting but wouldn't it be great??? ("Dream on" I hear you all say!!!!)

I have always wondered:

Which airlines do Emirates use to transfer passengers across the Atlantic to the USA and Canada and through which respective hubs?(I understand a large part of their Europe revenue is North American transfer passengers). I remember that they used to have an agreement of sorts with United. Is this still in effect?

Thanks.
