Seriously? Take a look at a map and look north.
Then Google "Air Canada and Canadian government are afraid of competition and block Emirates daily flights to YYZ".

I thought it was strange 'cuz EK already flies to YYZ.
Now that you mention it, I guess EK wants to add capacity to the YYZ region and have DAILY flights.
That's still crazy though...not sure how many Canadians would go to BUF to catch EK flights, especially when EK is already flying to YYZ albeit not daily.

EK probably wants twice daily flights and all they are allowed is 3x week.
Millions of Canadians drive to BUF every year for much cheaper flights than they can get from YYZ. Canadian taxes also drive up the price of any ex-YYZ ticket.

Oh, and I hope BUF gets an A380 if EK does decide to fly to BUF.
AFAIK BUF currently has 0 international service. PHX serves 20 international locations most of which are Mexico and Canada with London (LHR) being the only trans oceanic destination.

Sunwing operates to Cancun and Punta Cana seasonally but that's about it.

I didn't even know there was an airline called Sunwing - does that still count as 0?

BUF would be awesome. Arrange a shuttle bus from Toronto or surroundings.
The runway issue is tough though - no getting around that - unless there is a tech stop

Good to see EK trying to stick it to AC and its continued subsidy, if only true.

There is a lot of money around PHX, and many of the state locals travel to LAX to begin their longhaul journeys.

The BA flight to LHR is usually very busy, as it's the only route to Europe.

An EK routing, would have an impact I'm sure.

I was thinking about this earlier actually.

(All my opinions based on virtually no first-hand reading of his non-existant policies)
1. Trump is likely to place heavy restrictions/fees/bans on foreign airlines (AA, Delta and United must be thrilled by his being elected!)
2. None of us will be allowed to visit the US anyway any longer as we're alll infidels (non-American freedom haters)
3. There will however be heavy demand for travel originating from the US most likely as non-citizens are deported or voluntarily flee.

And don't forget about us citizens having to GTFO before everything implodes on us! (Canadian immigration site went down last night...)

There is another thread for wishes / rumours on EKs routes - should this thread be kept for confirmed changes?
