Emirates DXB-JFK Starts Tuesday!

Mon May 31, 2004 2:37 am

I haven't heard any updates on this flight.

This is due to start on June 1. I take it, since Emirates is still advertising it, that it will commence. What happened to all the hurdles they had to pass?

ChrisZRH, I can't remember the exact details of the security issue, but I'll tell you what I think I remember. Emirates wanted to start this service a little while back, but they were denied rights by US authorities because apparently since Emirates and the DXB security are both owned by the UAE or Dubai government, they were not allowed to fly the route. The US said that this was because the two entities were not independent of each other, thus in the minds of the authorities, posed a secuirty threat. As ridiculous as it sounds, that is the case and I think that Airlinefreak1 is wondering how EK got around this problem.

And they will be seated in the first class! Big grin

Airplanetire;
Yes this would be ridiculous as you state. I cannot believe that the US authorities would be as naive as to think that EK were a threat to the much talked about US homeland security. EK, the UAE and the Dubai government itself all promote global trade. The UAE is an outward looking nation when it comes to other cultures, more so than the USA. Shame on those who delayed this flights introduction, I hope it does well.

I can't wait for EK to commence SFO service on Jan. 1, 2005. That shall be a great day for SFO. Also, I fail to see how the UAE could be considered a threat.
