I don't think they will pull out of AUH, they have so many flights there, many are real money makers like 2x daily (A340) to LHR
, daily (A330) to CDG
, daily (A340/A330) to CAI, etc. MCT is still a relatively small market for them but they are expanding their with daily flights to LHR
(A330) soon. Gulf Traveller is also a strong tool to strengthen their Gulf dominance.
