Emirates possible future U.S. destinations?

Sun Jul 17, 2016 10:33 pm

Any guesses on where else in the United States Emirates will start flying?

My guesses are:

Atlanta (Delta cancelled ATL-DXB flights, although Delta still may have sour feelings about Emirates coming into their largest hub)
Miami (Only Qatar flies there, so... [but American might complain])
Newark (New Jersey has the highest demand for traffic heading to India, in which India is Emirates' largest connecting market, not to mention there is a huge Arab/Turkish community in Paterson that is probably yearning to have nonstop flights to the Middle East from the much closer Newark Airport.)
Airports I have been to:
DFW, EWR, IAH, JFK, LAS, LGA, MCO, MIA, NRT, ORD, PHL, PHX, SEA, SLC, YTZ, YYZ

From most likely to least likely: ATL, MIA, DTW, EWR, PHL, LAS, DEN, PHX, MSP, SJC

I've heard that Philadelphia has been announced as a new destination by Emirates (no exact date)

IMHO it would be dumb for them to do ATL on top of QR and probably TK. The market just isn't big enough. EWR is smarter than PHL.

I don't get why Emirates didn't choose EWR over PHL... Oh wait, Ras Baraka thinks that if Emirates flew to EWR, the city's economy would fall... How ridiculous...

Always a good thing, because United can charge more than an International Airline but offer a worse product... What great business strategies... Not.

EK already serves ATL but cargo only.They've been operating a couple of 777F freighters a week to ATL since April 2014. They stop at FRA westbound and CPH eastbound. I think it was once a week when it started but appears to be twice a week now.

My guess would be EWR, DTW, and MIA/FLL (most likely MIA)

PHL, I don't see because QR is struggling. And ATL has enough with QR and TK, IMO.

Didn't the FAA suspend TK from flying to the United States for the time-being? With TK out of the picture and the unrest in Turkey, this might situation might advantageous to the ME3 carriers.

I'm not going to guess with this thread, I'm going to give a legitimate possibility, Detroit. The Detroit area has the largest number of middle eastern people in the USA with such a lack of flights to the Middle East. Most are predominantly Lebanese, Syrian and Iraqi, BUT there's still a sizable population from the gulf states. Not to mention over 250 passengers daily travel between Detroit and India, you could easily fill a 77L to DXB. Over all options I believe that EK is the best option for Detroit.

You are probably correct that there is no real evidence of PHL beyond "EK has been in talks with the airport" which always made it curious why about a year ago anna.aero published a leaked route of Emirates on DXB-PHL. Don't know much about them but are they not particularly credible? Maybe something was going to launch but something changed? Some other scenario?

Miami is the obvious missing American city for Emirates. Atlanta would only be to challenge Delta. Qatar and Turkish have also announced or launched flights to ATL, is there really that much demand to that part of the world from ATL ? ATL seems like this huge market but more a huge amount has to be Delta's hub there. The ME3 must be counting on DL feed to make Atlanta work for them.

The ME3 are running out of cities in the US that they can fly to on dedicated, terminator services. A large number of these destinations can't really support 2 ME3 carriers in town, let alone 3.
Some potential routes:
EK DXB-AUS
DXB-CLT
DXB-SAN
DXB-SJC
DXB-DUB/BHX/MAN-HNL

Way before some of the mentioned. DEN? Really? What partnership/Alliance going to feed DEN-DXB? DEN is a star alliance hub. Last time I checked EK was not in the star alliance. At least at PDX they would get plenty of feed from partner AS.

MCO was a surprise. At least for me. So I'd venture something like that. I would have said SAN if the airport wasn't so physically limited.

Emirates really seems to avoid tags, unless there's a range issue. EK is not just going to fly to every city just because people want them to. Maybe 3-5 larger airports and I think they are done in the U.S.

Atlanta because Alpharetta in the northern suburbs of the city has a growing population from India. They also love to fly as most of my early morning Uber pax are from India and talk about how flying Turkish and Qatar airlines saves so much time. I don't see that changing if Emirate was to start Atlanta service. I think people forget that Atlanta is one of the five US cites with an Embassy for India.

As much as I'd like to see DTW added I think the window of opportunity for DTW to get an ME3 is pretty much closed. The only carrier that mentioned DTW was QR and that was a while back when they said they were adding BOS, ATL,LAX and DTW they have now added the others and passed over DTW to add LAS so I think DTW is pretty much dead as a destination for the ME3.

Exactly. ANY healthy mid sized or greater city is fair game for EK. They stimulate their market. Just a couple years ago people were shocked they added SEA; now it is double daily and there are threads about when it will get an A-380. The Emirates Affect is the new Southwest Effect. AUS, RDU, MSP, PDX, DEN, and a handful of others are all fair game within the next 5 years.

Austin is thriving with young people right now, and it is a great city. Think tech industry there will allow EK to feed on India traffic?

Not sure you understood my comment. I was surprised that no-one had suggested PDX as a viable EK destination. I said nothing about DEN. I'm fully aware of the EK/AS partnership.

Though I would love to see a PDX-DXB from EK, I doubt it will materialize. PDX may be able to sustain the A330s, but wouldn't the A330s range be a little off for this distance? If there can be a load penalty, this might be a good option. Lot of people going to/from India from/to PDX currently use SEA connection.

Seems the general thought about SEA being double daily is belly cargo. I expect Boeing ships a lot of 777 parts to Dubai. SEA has no where to park a 380 without taking out an international gate, which they need more of. The 2nd flight might go to a 77W.

PDX-DXB is over 6,500NM (longer than SEA-BKK would be), not even the HGTW versions could do it and I think Emirates is getting rid of their 330s anyway. The PDX market is a fraction the size of SEA, and my impression was that the loads and yields on SEA were both lacking. While Alaska could provide feed in PDX, it wouldn't add any significant new sources of feed not available through SEA. Then again, its Emirates. Who knows.
When in doubt, one B pump off

EK started a second daily flight on SEA-DXB so that can't be the case.

Most of the DTW Arab population is from the Levant (Syria, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon etc.) so flying DTW-DXB-BEY would be a huge detour versus going via CDG (42% versus 0% detour, as per gcmap). In addition given that many Arabs in DTW aren't recent immigrants and what's happening in places like Syria now, I can't imagine that the travel demand is that large. DTW has to be very far down EK's list of potential routes.

Are you kidding me Arabic people are immigrating to the Detroit area daily. Most of the migrant population is from within the last 10 years and are very price conscious so we lose a lot of these passenger to YYZ A flight from the ME3 to Detroit would cater to the Indian and Bangladeshi immigrates that live in the Detroit which there are many. So the travel habits of the Detroit passengers that travel to the middle east would have very little to do with weather a ME3 carrier adds Detroit of not. Which by the way I think is very unlikely at this point because of the lack of aggressiveness by the WCAA to more flight options for DTW because of the fear of backlash from their main tenant Delta.

EK would never send the A330's to the US either way.

...okay? The largest Arab american and one of the largest Indian populations and they deserve twice weekly summer nonstops? DTW deserves more than that.


Most of the DTW Arab population is from the Levant (Syria, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon etc.) so flying DTW-DXB-BEY would be a huge detour versus going via CDG (42% versus 0% detour, as per gcmap). In addition given that many Arabs in DTW aren't recent immigrants and what's happening in places like Syria now, I can't imagine that the travel demand is that large. DTW has to be very far down EK's list of potential routes.



DTW would be a nice addition to the TK network!

Emirates is never ever coming to BWI. Only 1x daily A380 now at IAD. Lots of room to expand there.

MCO was a surprise. At least for me. So I'd venture something like that. I would have said SAN if the airport wasn't so physically limited.


Exactly. ANY healthy mid sized or greater city is fair game for EK. They stimulate their market. Just a couple years ago people were shocked they added SEA; now it is double daily and there are threads about when it will get an A-380. The Emirates Affect is the new Southwest Effect. AUS, RDU, MSP, PDX, DEN, and a handful of others are all fair game within the next 5 years.


SEA is way larger than AUS, RDU, PDX and DEN. They still don't serve much larger markets like MIA, PHL, ATL and DTW and are only a single daily out of WAS. MCO is like LAS. It punches over it's weight due to tourism.

It would but with the issues going on right now it's not feasible. I'd rather RJ just maintain year round 5x weekly or daily nonstops but of course that won't happen according to RJ.

Emirates should add flint to dubai that can take away detroit passengers.

PHL, I don't see because QR is struggling. And ATL has enough with QR and TK, IMO.

If PHL's "struggling" - which is your theory, this surely doesn't support the route's demise:

PHL is by far QR's worst performing US route. It's no secret.
