Thanks for the info. Would you have a timeframe on when the sale will be made and the acft be delivered to Emirates ? I would assume there would be a reconfig. to Emirates' std. HD or LD config. pre-delivery by Airbus.

I have heard that it will be leased, with an option to buy. To me that makes more sense, just in case the door at LHR-USA gets opened a very tiny, tiny crack to allow new service on a very, very limited basis.
