That is some great information, thanks. Emirates is my favorite airline next to of course Singapore Airlines.

Quick question I know flights to JFK will probaly be non-stop from Dubai but will DXB-SFO be non-stop, if not will it stop in London or Osaka or any other city?

SFO will be served non-stop using A340-500s.

A380jet
Emirates has expressed an interest in serving CEB however this is all subject to the Phillipine authorities actually honouring their committment and sitting down with EK to discuss the increased access rights. The authorities have backed away twice and the next set of talks are scheduled for 1Q in 2003. If they go ahead then Emirates have said they want to take MNL upto a double-daily and also serve CEB.

MEA
SYD will go daily on 30 March 2003.
Emirates are currently requesting the Australian authorities for 2nd dailies into both SYD and MEL. These would be dedicated nonstops using A340s. They also plan to take up PER upto a daily next year, subject to acft availability.

Excellent, I'm flying into Lebanon in the beginning of May so I hope these flights are up & running by then.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to get seats on Emirates out of Australia. Travel agents I spoke to wont even allow you to fly to Perth for connecting flights or even into Asia to connect with EK.

They are flying already to AMS, but only with the Freighter.

Maybe they will come with passenger flights from summer 2003/4.

Emirates777,

Any idea as to when, if at all, service to IAH would begin and what type of aircraft they would use on the route? Thanks.

No plans to increase their services into KUL? How are they doing on the KUL route? Any good? How about a daily nonstop service instead of only a 3 times weekly nonstop service?

IAH-EWR,
I think IAH is planned for late 2004/2005 and would be served nonstop using A340-500s. Furthermore, as the A340-600s arrive in 2005 this will free up more A340-500s to do routes like IAH and South America.

Andie007,
DUS service is going ok - some strength occassionally but generally quite stable. The real money here is in the cargo.

Odie,
Nothing in the system at the moment but i think additional Asia expansion will be governed by delvy of more 777s. It looks like the 2 773s that were optioned for 2003 are not going to be exercised at this point. The KUL route overall has done very well this year. If they do expand KUL, likely they add a frequency but all contingent upon demand.

Whoa!!! It's just about time for EK start serving nonstop from DXB-SFO by first time ever for ultra-long range flight. This is great news for SFO customers will be enjoy for flight to Dubai, U.A.E there, too. If the passengers will be like to flying nonstop to San Francisco, CA and will have a very nice tourists.

Emirates777, Thanks for the information about with the new route out there. I'm never use it hear for the before. So far that might will be connecting for trip into Hawaii and west coast flight. How much miles for the nonstop from DXB-SFO there, please? well, catch ya later!!

Regards,

Scott W.

Dubai to San Francisco! My god that's a long flight. Anyone know the address of that site that plots shortest routes and mileage? I guess you'd fly out of Dubai and head north, way up over northern Europe and the Arctic then back down over NW Canada and over Seattle into SFO. What do you reckon, 16 hours westbound? Easy.


fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

What cities is EK looking at in South America? What are the chances of EK starting a route to Caracas? I know the economy in Venezuela is abysmal, but it's still a major oil producer.

 Sad I was hoping that EK would come to LAX, I guess there is just not enough traffic to support the route, it's a pitty!!! Hopefully they will come in the future.

I'd give my real opinion of this news, but it would involve a number of unpleasant expletives! So, another year and they've missed out Dublin. Right, that's it. If they don't want it, we'll get someone who will - SIA, MAS, Thai. If we have to use diplomatic arm twisting we will, but I'm damned if I'm going to waste more time on EK.

Sorry, Emirates777, I don't mean to offend you as the bearer of bad news, but frankly, I'm fed up of waiting year after year and we'll find someone else to do the job. Of course, much of the criticism must go towards the Irish authorities for an uncoordinated approach. I'll be meeting the Irish Minister for Transport to discuss the issue of access to Asia pretty soon and I will be raising this issue prominently.

Time for us to stop wasting time. It's sad that EK missed its chance; with Ireland being one of Europe's fastest growing economies, with a third of the Australian population being of Irish descent, they could have made it work. I'm sure they'll be very happy in Moscow and Lagos. Good luck to them.

I know it would be a long way off, but if SFO/JFK go well, and then LAX/ORD, and then IAD/IAH, anyone think MIA and BOS have a shot at Emirates? Maybe 2-3x weekly to each. I think it could work very well. And DTW may work out too. I hope Emirates becomes a succsesful carrier on the trans-Atlantic market to the point where they can grow to become one of the major forces across the Atlantic like Air France, British Airways, and Lufthansa.

MAH4546: I believe they have slated a BOS service for commencement in 2005. It'll be in the later part of their trans-Atlantic expansion program.
