Emirates will add a 2nd flight on its Dubai to London Gatwick route as follows :
Schedules of current daily flight :
EK011 DXB 0215-0655 LGW 1000-2000 DXB EK012
This flight is going to be operated by a Boeing 777.
Schedules of new flight :
EK015 DXB 0745-1225 LGW 1400-2359 DXB EK016
This flight will be operated by an Airbus A330.
The flight starts on 01Aug02 operating on Tue/Thu/Fri/Sun and becomes daily on 02Sep02.
On a side note, Emirates will also increase capacity on its Dubai to London Heathrow route by switching 1 of its 3 flights from a B777-200 to a B777-300 from 01Aug02.
Schedules as follows :
EK001 DXB 0745-1225 LHR 1400-2355 DXB EK002 (B777-300)
EK003 DXB 1415-1850 LHR 2030-0625 DXB EK004 (B777-300)
EK005 DXB 1600-2105 LHR 2230-0830 DXB EK006 (A330-300)
I expected the second daily Gatwick flight to have an afternoon departure from DXB and a red eye flight back to DXB. Anyways good news for LGW spotters as well as LHR spotters (two daily 773's!).
