It would be awesome, but I feel like something would have been announced by now...aren't summer schedules usually out by now? I may be totally off base, but we did already know about BA bringing the A380 last March (for the duration of the summer) in October 2016 if I remember correctly.
I also think we'd have heard by now, but EK announced a June resumption for Houston just last week. So I wouldn't abandon hope yet. Like I said earlier, the CEO of EK has been chattering about resuming the lost service in the U.S. Aside from Houston we've seen the Florida upgrades as well. I think there's still time for them to 'announce' something for a Summer start. That really does fly in the face of conventional wisdom that suggests that these sort of things are made public a half-year beforehand. I guess because EK has so many planes they can turn more on a dime than others can.
As for BA, still the same Friday/Sunday/Monday deal as last year.
