As EK has a massive onward network from DXB (and comeptitive fares and service) most traffic for VS/BD would just be point-to-point.
Not for VS
who would get a lot of DXB
originating pax flying on their trans-atlantic flights. Plus remember if VS
comes to DXB
, then it will be interlining with EK
on the DXB
routes which will feed its DXB
bound flights + trans-atlantic ones.
too via its LHR
hub can take DXB
pax all over UK and EU on codeshared UAL-AC trans-atlantic flights.
Its worth mentioning that in PAK, VS
have the same GSA company representing them and out of LHE, VS
in 2004 controlled 15% of the trans-atlantic market (according to MIDT figures) by having EK
transport its pax to LHR
and then them trans-atlantic.
