Excellent news. A380 and A350 should be fine for EK fleet, drop other birds.

A lot of airlines retired old planes and are shrinking capacity. I wouldn't exclude that Covid 19 turns out to be a blessing for Emirates nine months from now.

Telling that no comments from sir Clarke on the five he wanting to cancel.

Even these three will be parked up with the 100 others! Stupid to take them. Orders should be the cancel.s.

We've been awaiting the dominance of point-to-point for 20 years now. It hasn't happened.

The vast majority of A350 / 787 are used from hubs. The occasional ULH routes are exceptional and, of course, still involve a hub at one end...

It is. But there are more certifications to go. ETOPS etc. Certifications that will need to happen before EIS

A bit more from the textual version:

Emirates will receive three of the jumbos by the end of the year, at least one of which will have a premium economy cabin, the executive said Wednesday. That will leave five more to be delivered at a later date.

Strongly suggests to me at least that there will be a deferment of the last five, otherwise we would have been given a date.

Not "dominance", no, but the shift was happening pre-COVID, even if a hub is at one end. Just 10 years ago folks here in AUS had to make double connections to fly to secondary cities in the EU, western Asia, Africa, etc. No more, thanks to BA to LHR and LH to FRA, for example. The days of being forced to transit via JFK/ORD/DFW/IAH/etc and then again in the EU/ME/African regional hub are largely gone. Just look at BA's US offerings 20 years ago and what they offered pre-COVID. Thanks to the 330/787/350 for making such routes possible and profitable (outside of a pandemic, of course).

I and a few world travelers I know have loved the existence of the LHR flight since it started several years ago...for a reason. Trunk routes weren't as dominant in 2019 as they were even 10 years prior.

Emirates' first Airbus A380 fitted with all-new premium economy 'sleeperette' seats will arrive next month, with two more to follow before the year ends.

However, the seat may officially remain under wraps or at least off the airline's flying schedule until the middle of 2021.

Emirates President Tim Clark insists on B777X testing in Dubai summer conditions.

Quote:
“ I am not interested in (fuel) improvement packages or later mods (modifications) and I insist on the engines being fully stressed in Dubai summer conditions,” Sir Tim Clark said in an exclusive interview.

“I want the 777X doing flight tests out of Dubai fully loaded in summer to really stress the engines.””

Sales speak for 'normal' conditions performance erosion despite 'harsh' conditions, linked to higher OEM fixed price maintenance. The tough negotiations relate to the rate of erosion, trigger point for engine replacement / downtime, and revised cost of said maintenance contract.

Some fact checking for Tim Clark (or does he also believe in alternative facts) : The GE9X engine has been already certified at September 25th 2020. The airframe and airframe /engine combination has to be certified.

Like a clockwork. Let me guess 777X is close to certification.

This Noah's Arc flying away from Dubai vision screwed RR. His imaginary loads and unrealistic thrust requirements put RR in a pickle. Now GE's turn.

Take out empty/non-rev premium seats, showers, bars, requirement should be far less for any frame and to run a profitable airline.

He’s one of the largest noisemakers in this industry. And I think it’s more wanting to reduce jet size. He’s asking for guarantees on durability most likely, I think it’s hard to give that for an engine that doesn’t exist. If you want guarantees don’t be a launch customer.

We’ve heard rumours that they met performance. Maybe durability might be the issue or something. I know they are doing sand ingestion tests next year anyway

He made it clear he’s not interested in fuel
Improvement packages he wants the engines stressed out in Dubai

I'm sure he aware sir time that 9X engine is the certified.

Did you watch the Bloomberg interview?

Not trying to defend Tim Clark, but his words were "it hasn't finished its certification program yet, both airframe and engine". That sounds remarkably close to the airframe/engine combination has yet to be certified.

EK has been working with Boeing for years on development of this aircraft. The fact of the matter was that the aircraft wasn't delivered as contracted with Boeing in June, even if that was to the benefit of EK's cash position.

It's not really a good sign for EK that STC had delayed retirement at least twice now and he is still the one the financial and aviation media types go to for information. You would think at this time they would have at least named a successor and that person would be sharing the stage with STC serving to make the introductions to ease the transition to his successor.

Or the airline owner wants him to prove his business model works before he can withdraw his nest egg from Emirati banks and exit the country. Probably they are in no rush to announce his retirement.

Will return in a few days now that EOL maintenance and the new paint job are done.

Interesting that ECL retired after 12 years of service, where as the other GECAS frames (EBB, EBC, EBE and EBG) all flew for 15 years before retiring.

They do flight tests after EOL maintenance regardless of whether it's going to a new owner or not.

All pre-retirement test flights use the EK2646 flight number / callsign.

I doubt GECAS will be finding any new owners in the current state of the aviation industry, so it will most likely join other retired EK birds in CQM or become the second 77W to get a freighter conversion.

Most EK leases from here on are 12 years, with 3 year option to roll (at lower rate), similar to the A380 (but without the deferred EOL / on demand use option), and designed originally to dovetail with replacement deliveries (A350 then 777X, now...)

Check the spreadsheet in my signature.

A6-EPV to A6-EQG have new business class, but regular first class suites.

A6-EQH to A6-EQP have new business class and new fully enclosed first class suites.

According to the Aviation Journalist Andreas Spaeth, Emirates will receive their last 3 Airbus A380s in 2022: two in April, last one in May. Three Airbus Aircraft superjumbos for EK are still due for delivery in December this year, among them the first with the new Premium Economy cabin, on December 20.

Seems they could not twist Airbus's arm and get them to accept longer deferrals, given most of the A380 fleet is probably still goinig to be parked 1H2021.

Looks like only two frames have yet to fly:

Would it be possible and/or cheaper to take delivery as unassembled kit assuming Airbus can transport these structure sections to DXB/DWC. I am guessing financing a kit would be near impossible.

Excluding A6-EBI which is already in the retirement process, there are 10 frames remaining. Six of which are -36NER GECAS leases.

Interesting quote from the announcement. EK now does not expect the X before 2023.

Emirates’ premium economy seats will also be installed on some of its Boeing 777X aircraft which are only due to join the fleet in 2023
