I have been monitoring Emirates flights for some weeks departing Dubai and have noticed a pattern of continuous delays by upto an hour, in some cases a bit more and wondered what the reason for this was?
Having travelled through Dubai with EK last year myself I did notice that they had outgrown the current terminal and were having to use remote stands and buses again to transport passengers from the terminal building to the aircraft.
Is this the major reason for the delays?
I had heard that a new dedicated Emirates terminal is due to open this year, does anybody have any further information or even pictures of this.
Emirates was the original middle eastern airline to revitalise, refine and air travel across the globe with fellow major airlines following suit in many areas such as PTV's in all classes but I cant help feeling that they need to have a look at their in flight product in all classes and product consistency on all aircraft to keep up with things. Otherwise they risk being left behind in terms of product by the likes of Etihad and Qatar and this would be a real shame.
