Most of the time, most of the pax on 2 of the Gatwick flights (EK016/EK009) are mainly holiday makers travelling just to DXB
with only few travelling onwards normally to holiday destinations like Sri Lanka, Maldives, Mauritius & Seychelles.
Since there is a codeshare agreement with Continental Airlines and EK
for services from certain US airports to LGW
(operated by CO
) and from LGW
(operated by EK
- only on EK012) most of the pax on this flight originate from the USA and are normally travelling to India or Pakistan,so most of them are only using DXB
as a transit point.
On the other hand you never know with LHR
flights.....it's always such a mix of holidaymakers, business people, etc. sometimes almost all of the pax final destination is DXB
and sometimes almost all are travelling onwards.
