Not sure if this is the correct thread, so mods feel free to move if necessary.

An upcoming booking on EK382 DXB-HKG which is usually operated by the 380 is showing the 777 seatmap. This is consistent onwards from 3 DEC 2016. The emirates website is still showing A380 as well as expertflyer, but both are showing the 777 seatmap. Is this just a glitch or an aircraft swap?

Phoenix and Buffalo are now showing on the EK route map as direct flights from dxb (I.e not jet blue codeshare). This was the case a week before FLL was announced.

Both PHX and BUF have been added to EK's on-line route map. I'd be blown away if BUF was added. Many posts ago I believe I told SFO777 I'd eat my shoe if BUF was added

Some rumors in Italy refer EK101/102 (MXP's morning flight) to be cancelled in the near future.

LOL. BUF is great option and a big middle finger to Air Canada and their protectors in Ottawa.

I posted this in 2014 so way overdue if you ask me Pls don't judge me on ATL.....

US flights are heavily populated by sub-continent O&D traffic, and ~80% of South Asians in the US are Indian. Of the top 15 Indian-diaspora metropolitan areas in the US, EK serves 11 (assuming Baltimore is covered by IAD and Sunnyvale by SFO).

My key questions are: What's left, in ranking order? PHL, ATL, DTW, MIA. PHX is #16. How are these growing? PHX is fastest, followed by ATL, MIA, DTW. What are potential monopolies? Only PHX. QR beat EK to PHL (which Tim Clark had mentioned years ago as a possible destination) and MIA, DL serves ATL. Am thinking some competitive breathing room might be welcome, with things heating up at DFW and LAX.

EWR is definitely possible given the sheer number of Indians in New Jersey. ATL still intuitive with 2.5 times the Indian population of PHX + the cargo precursor. But going to volunteer PHX as a creative second choice for argument's sake, with ATL for 2015.

Do you have a source of this? I am pretty sure about that. They never been in Phoenix before? It will be on weight restrictions. Due to high extreme weather during in the Summer.

Is there currently ANY international flight out of BUF? (or even PHX?)
I've got nothing against this (the more options the better), but just cannot think of a single reason EK would pick BUF.
Oh, and I hope BUF gets an A380 if EK does decide to fly to BUF.
