EK A332s @ LHR

Fri Jun 11, 2004 3:13 am

Hi.. I recently have done my first 2 early shifts since December at work and whilst going airside etc, I have noticed Emirates A332s. I thought EK only brought in 773s to LHR or have i missed something not doing early shifts. I have seen them on both occasions at approx 8-9am but all other EK departures during the day are operated by their 773s..
So is this a normal morning departure operated by the A332 from LHR?

The A330's were probably substituted on some flights for 777's, otherwise all Emirates flights into Heathrow have been all-777-300 for a while now. For example, EK 007 and EK 008 were A330's on the 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th of May, plus various other days where the A330 was used.

They are on the early morning flights every day. As I type this A6-EKV is just lining up on 27R

The new early morning flight is indeed always operated with an A332...

Out of curiosity: why is the evening service downgraded so much lately from B773 to B772?
