I was looking at the flight schedules from DXB to HYD for August, and around August 8th, they start flying long haul 777's, such as the the 77W to HYD! This is very surprising, because I have been flying EK to HYD for the past 6-7 years, and the best equipment we ever got was a 773 with old configuration! This 77W has the suites, and lie flat business class. I've never seen EK schedule Long Haul aircraft on not so popular routes like HYD. Either there's a lot of Hyderabadi's flying EK, or all those A380 are sending 777 on routes like this! I'm not criticizing EK on this decision, because it would be awesome if they keep it on the route! Suites to HYD would be awesome. This is on EK 524/525. I'm just very surprised about it! Is this the future? With all the A380's replacing the more important routes, are the 777's and even some A380 be put on routes like this? If it is, I for one am excited!
What do you think?
