Emirates Pulls A380 Out of BHX

Mon Aug 22, 2016 7:42 am

Hi,

It started off a speculation and rumour but from April 2017, Emirates will no longer be offering the A380 on the DXB-BHX-DXB route.

Intitially,the two class A380 is being moved from the lunchtime 39/40 service to the evening 37/38 service, this will run from 31st December until end of March 2017, with everyone expecting it to move back to how it was before.

However, on making a dummy booking, several people have indicated that April / May 2017 bookings all show 3 x 777W daily and no A380 flight at all.

Nothing has been announced by the airport itself, but then again, why would it?

So yeah, if you are a BHX Emirates regular, this news may be of some importance to you.

I flew the 380 on BHX-HKG on Sat (J) and it made a pleasant change from the 77W from BHX. I fly the route a few times a year for work and continue onto HKG. I've done dummy bookings for some dates next year and indeed they're all showing as the 77W.

In one of those 'nothing to see here' moments, it has been identified as a glitch on the Emirates booking system and they are not removing the 380 from the 37/38 flight afterall...

The website is showing an A380 to BHX in April 2017.

From airlineroute Twitter feed:
"Emirates will continue 2-cls A380 service to Birmingham on/after 27MAR17. Briefly switched to 777-300ER in the last few days."
