Just had notification of the new departure time for my EK419 AKL-SYD flight. It now leaves at 16:30 rather than 18:30. Quite annoying if are doing a day of business in auckland with the new departure time.

"Emirates to use the A380 on the morning EK21/22 flight from 14-29th October inclusive, due to high forward bookings."

Now, if they could just extend it throughout November...

Also less useful if not in Auckland. The new timing for CHC-SYD may work better.

Wow - things are getting bad when they start chopping London flights (yes, I know it hasn't started yet).

The EK23/24 numbers were originally planned for the 4th MAN daily, but got switched to LGW. With the news that MAN is getting the 3rd A380 in January, and a few extra A380 flights in October, I wonder if they will re-consider a 4th MAN instead?

Y loads have been thoroughly awful for LGW recently, combine that with the 777 pilot issue and I think it's understandable they might hold off (i.e. it hasn't cost them anything at the moment) - London capacity isn't too much of an issue, imho.

Bigger priorities for the 777 fleet!

Just booked a DXB-DAC-DXB and noticed that, EK 584/85 have changed the flight times by a few hours. And this is not a winter schedule as happens with EK 582, where fog leads to a later arrival time in DAC

As long as I can remember, i.e. from 2005 onwards, EK 584 has always had a scheduled departure at ~ 1330 DXB, and a return ~2130 from DAC

The new departures are 1645 from DXB and 0045 from Dhaka.

Very interesting, and convenient to my situation.

DXB has very few departures between 1600 and 1900, so the airport experience will be calmer.

And the best part about the 0045 from DAC is one will not be caught up in Dhaka's horrendous traffic which subsides after 2100.

However I am sure traffic was not the reason why the schedules changed after more than a decade

Emirates’ daily flight EK213 will depart Dubai (DXB) at 3:00 a.m. local time and arrive in Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) at 10:25 a.m. The return flight EK214 will depart FLL at 8:20 p.m. arriving in Dubai at 7:40 p.m. the following day, with a flying time of 14 hours and 20 minutes.
10 hours on the ground in FLL. Longer than usual for EK! (crew will like that)

The 4th US location to have the early morning departure, after SEA/JFK/DFW.

Everyone else seems to have that morning 9 am departure ...

It actually doesnt appear to be quite appealing on the connections, missing a morning bank and have given a lengthy lengthy for a number of others. I suppose it Depends on if they're looking for international or domestic connection opportunities.

I agree on the 10:20am arrival, but 10 hour turnaround appears to be so that people can connect into the DXB bound flight.

If the return was after a more usual 3-4 hour turnaround, for example, say at 2pm, it would really limit incoming connections.
