EK doesn't fly to BOS because of "life sciences" and "education." They fly there because B6 has a massive hub and is perfectly located for capturing US feed that connects onto EK.

False. They fly there because of the O&D. Anything else just helps fill the plane.
Correct BOS-DXB is sustainable on it's own but B6 makes it an A380. Without B6 the flight would be a smaller gauge of aircraft.
