The price difference between tickets bough in the UK and those in AUS is strange. I just booked a one way from LHR to MEL next month for £430 with EY the cheapest was around £360, returns with EY can be had for around £530 which is less than AUD,1000!Jump to post
Last night flight EY18 took a very strange flight path avoiding French and Belgium airspace. any ideas?

Tellingly, the second A380 that SYD received was the one that was servicing MEL, and that's not being reinstated. Also the aircraft being downgraded is the afternoon service out of SYD, which is now competing with a QR flight at a similar time that never used to be there. That flight was never the ...Jump to post
I'm still surprised the EY over the years hasn't added frequencies to its key destinations such LHR and BKK. For an airline the size of EY it should 5 daily instead of the 3 at the moment, I remember a while back EY bought LHR slots from Jet Airways and leased it back to them so getting the slots is...Jump to post
I just cant see how they can focus mainly on point to point / regional air travel going forward. Abu Dhabi isn't exactly Dubai or Singapore. The timing for such decision couldn't have been worse, the main regional carriers such as Saudia, Kuwait Airways, Jordanian and Oman Air are either expanding o...Jump to post
I just don’t know why questions were asked from the owners at every quarter. Money was just being pumped out and with nothing to show for it.Jump to post

Emirates airline chairman said premium economy will be fitted on the A380s it ordered in January this year

This was expected to come sooner or later... Now it makes senses! I have a database at work which shows orders and deliveries dates, when I checked Etihad deliveries until end of 2018 last week it only showed 789 and one 781 I thought it was strange as I did the same search the month before and it i...Jump to post

click on the video from seconds. has to be one of the best special liveries on A380.
Rhetorical question: Are you saying the US airlines have a case against EY? Etihad has no future as a self-sustaining airline. It is competing with multiple other national projects, which have larger networks and, in most cases, a richer local market.[/quote] Personally I think the US airlines are p...Jump to post
The question I would like to know is, what fleet/route planning dept at EY are going to do with all the new aircraft due to be delivered this year. 6x B789 and the 1st B781 arriving from April at rate of approx one a 1 month. (a few planned to replace some B777ER) 1st A350-900 set to arrive in Oct. ...Jump to post
To understand the future of EY, one needs to remember why EY was created in the first place. The main goal was for it to support the local economy as it shift away from oil dependency, part of AD 2030 vision. To understand how important EY to AD, you need to look past the airline op side and look at...Jump to post
I’m not sure why Etihad is struggling at Melbourne given the other two Gulf carriers are either increasing capacity or frequency. Melbourne should have been a double daily A388 given the huge sponsorship Etihad poured into the city and the brand new lounge, instead it EY reduced capacity in Oct by a...Jump to post

Any idea when EY will take the deliveries of the A320/21 Neo?
Looks like Etihad will reducing their B777 pax fleet in 2018. 5XA330F 5x B777LR average age between 10-11 years old. Ex Air India. 5x B777ER the oldest B777 in the fleet (12 years old) to be replaced with 6x B789 and the 1st B781 arriving from April at rate of approx one a 1 month. 1st A350-900 set ...Jump to post
