By the way, I just happened to find out our A380 March flight got switched. Bummer. Still in first though.

Yea... I was on the DFW a380. Just checked, the 380 is not loaded into their online booking yet. Might consider departing from there. But... our flight is the end of March. Weather is always a concern.

EDIT - it is now loaded into booking, but not the online schedule (and who knows what the undated PDF has-LOL). Also is in Expert Flyer, but not first award seats.

My exact thought when I found out IAH was getting down gauged to a 777 as well.
There's sometimes that I do prefer the 777 J though. But you can never beat all aisle access on the A380.

F is another story, honestly I never use the bar too much but the showers will be missed. The roomier suites on the 777 might almost make up for it though.

Don't think switching to QR would help you though, as AFAIK they fly aircraft with 2-2-2 to DFW/IAH.
EY is ok but their ground services are awful.
Personally I'm gonna just power through, hopefully EK puts the A380 back on its TX routes soon. Might be an excuse to book more F!

Athens/larnaca

eff 01 March
2nd daily Athens flight operated via Laranca on B773ER
EK107/8

Does this mean that EK will stop serving Malta, as EK107/8 is the current flight number for the Malta/Larnaca flight , which will change over to Larnaca/Athens from 1st March

It is part of a wider change that will also involve Larnaca, Malta and Tunis.

If your company keeps trying to send 10-14 people in F to DXB regularly they might

It looks like LCA-MLA has been zeroed out and the KM codeshare stops on 29th Feb. So if, as HB-IWC says, MLA gets combined with TUN does it allow them to retire a 330 without too big an increase in capacity on the LCA and MLA markets?

LCA and ATH used to be linked in the past, the last time was about 2001 or 2002. I'm curious as to how these will be scheduled. Could it be DXB-LCA-ATH-DXB and DXB-ATH-LCA-DXB? If not, they might end up with flights ex ATH arriving in DXB at similar times?

No the flight EK107/8 will route DXB-LCA-ATH-LCA-DXB
EK has rights to sell tickets for the LCA-ATH-LCA sectors which is a much larger market than LCA-MLA-LCA

OK, thanks. If the 107 departs DXB at 7:55 as it does now then it will return back to DXB around 23:00 (as LCA-ATH is about an hour shorter than LCA-MLA).

The current ATH flight leaves 10:05 and returns to DXB at 21:35. So both ATH flights would be connecting to and from the same banks. Assuming they kept that schedule. But perhaps they'll switch the nonstop ATH schedule?

I suppose the GDS will be updated in the next few days.
