I've recently had some time to examine Emirates and Philipines timetables, and saw some things that don't really make much sense to me. I'm wondering if anybody has some reasons?
EK- They have passenger flights that leave at 3 am for places like Doha and Baharain. I don't really understand how flying in the middle of the night is a good business, unless it is a usual Red-Eye type flight, where the plane leaves in the middle of the night to arrive in the morning. These are only 1 hr flights, and it is still COD (crack of dawn) when they arrive.
PR- the flights from SFO and LAX have stops in HNL which don't appear on their time tables (HNL-MNL). On the time tables they have 5 flights per week for HNL-MNL, but in reality they have 22 flights. If Honolulu is only a technical stop, why wouldn't they stop at ANC instead (which would save them about an hour flight time).
