Edealinfo - to answer your #8 from above - India did not ask to negotiate the bilateral with the UAE by city, that is how the emirates wanted it. India has been pushing to have one bilateral for the UAE. India’s unused AUH seats would help Indian carriers start more DXB flights which would help Dub...Jump to post
Also, note that Emirates used the switched capacity to expand to BLR and not DEL and not BOM -- I wonder what that implies. What this shows is that BOM/DEL/BLR seem to be where it is at. Adding a few more possibilities. 2. Possible that EK+FZ have already capped out on the DEL and BOM seat entitlem...Jump to post

I couldn't understand how Maldives could sustain so much capacity all of a sudden. And the bully knew that well too, hence they capacity dumped the route soon after G8's entry.
I did post this on the Turkish aviation thread but got no reply. Few days ago I flew from IST - BOM.

Will this get EK extra rights into India?

I think we should stop including Etihad in the group. Only EK and QR have a genuine worldwide network. This is no longer true for EY. If anything, TK (Turkish) should be included in the group, since it is a truly global airline. EY is still substantial but their past follies and the new IST pose a ...Jump to post

Ah, thanks for that info CPS001. They kept calling the terminal where I boarded from, as the 'New' terminal. So I assumed this was it. No, did not see the satellite concourse.

Any airline flying 777s with a majority of their seats in 10-abreast configuration does not deserve to be on that list - even if this is the view of the “Business Insider”.
