Emirates A340-500 Delivery?

Fri Aug 29, 2003 9:59 pm

Hi there,

could anybody tell me when EK is going to receive their first A340-500? And on which routes will this aircraft be operated first? I heard Osaka first and from 2004 on to the U.S. west coast.

Best regards,

BTW, EK will unveil their new, "revolutionary" First and Business Class products with the arrival of the A340-500s. Has anybody more info on that?

How much more revolutionary can things get up front?

EK still has not been granted permission to enter the USA, and doesnt look likely to gain it soon (despite OpenSkies).... so you'll probably see the planned JFK & SFO routes scratched/delayed until something gives.
