- Moscow: 1 existing daily flight goes A380. OK
- Paris: 1 of the existing daily flights goes A380. OK
. 2 for New York: they have 2 daily flights, one already operated by A380. So that should only be 1 of the 2 daily flights going to A380, right? Or are they adding 2 daily New York flights on A380 on top of the existing 1 daily A380 flight?
Paris will get the second daily flight with the A380 (January 2013).
The same with New York....
But for 2 daily flights to JFK; EK needs 4 airplanes.....
Moscow, one daily flight needs one frame; Paris, two daily flights needs two frames...
Emirates may buy 100 Boeing 777s jets if new model built-report
DUBAI | Thu Nov 8, 2012 1:38am EST
Nov 8 (Reuters) - Emirates airline would order 100 or more Boeing 777 wide-body jets if the manufacturer upgraded the design of the aircraft, the Dubai-based carrier's president said in a report.
"If Boeing produced the airplane that we want I can see easily that figure, bearing in mind that we've ordered 175 of them," Tim Clark said in an interview with Arabian Business magazine and published on its website.
"If it's as good as we hope it'll be, it's a natural thing to say 'yes we would probably roll over what we have to what they're offering with the new aircraft'."
Emirates officials were not immediately available for comment.
Carriers such as Dubai's Emirates Airline and British Airways had planned on the new mini-jumbo, provisionally called the 777X, entering service by the end of the current decade.
However, Boeing appears to be at least a year away from offering a new version of the 777.
Emirates, Boeing's biggest customers, has been pressing for the 777X to come sooner rather than later. The 777 is one of the most successful jets of all time and airlines are eager for an amped-up version that can go farther on less fuel with more passengers.
