Air freight out of NZ was as high as $12kg during spring lockdown - with the EK 77W regularly carrying up to 40t of cargo ex AKL. While the rates have dropped - they are not at the $2 pre Covid levels. EK are creating cash flow even operating some routes at net loss, however this is better than that...Jump to post
From the press release, it's not clear whether these are from multiple carriers, or whether the press release is saying that multiple carriers store their airplanes generally at GYR.

AerSale take 24 757s, parts & conversion. Seems too large an order on spec.
Any ideas who they have in mind?
With many of the industry leaders voicing interests in more JVs - it is not implausible to see an EK / Major code share. UA with EWR, ORD & IAD - makes sense. EK had quite a close relationship with UA in the past. TK/LH would not be happy I’m sure. AA & B6 could be interesting. DAL’s Bastian...Jump to post
Why would someone self-connect in AUH when he can get a good enough price with EY or with any other airline in the region (Emirates, Saudia, Qatar, Gulf Air...)?

This may be a silly question, how easy is it to engineer a rear swing tail on a 778F future freighter to enable longitudinal loading.

Wrong decision. Ample time to react and reject . Why so black & white?

Interesting rumors out of Dubai suggesting that the negative residual values of the end of lease A380s with EK are bringing the Operatimg lessors to the table with deferred payment and renegotiated terms.

What is so disgraceful about the Judge's decision.

Discussed in the past for DXB, was a short 2200m runway to north of 30R on the Sharjah side - on the road that accesses Air Cargo City. The traffic road would be tunneled underneath.

In 1993 HONG KONGs GDP as a percentage of China’s was 27%. Today it is less than 3%.
This is by design by the Chinese govt.
It’s relevance in the overall China story - is not what it was and with the current political events - China will make sure it never will be again.
The above comments are valid but the 339 is most probably coming - and soon, Q3/4 2020. The only way it won’t is conversion at the air show to 351’s.

While EK are allowed to expand under the Open Skies agreement with 5th freedom through Europe - there would be an outcry from US3 as they would se it as a reversal of the statement at the time a couple of years ago of ‘no current plans’ to expand that type of flying.
