Emirates Wishlist for 2020 (incl Route Rumours)

As a resident in Moz I keep seeing stories about Emirates possibly coming to Mozambique. I hope the introduction of new planes makes opening routes like Maputo possible. The sooner the better.

Any chance of the return of the 3rd daily non-stop DXB-JFK? I really like the idea of a 15h00 departure from DXB, and I think the return departure from JFK was around 1600.

EK expansion in the US seems to have pretty much stalled. In fact, EK expansion everywhere seems to have stalled. Whatever are they going to do with all these new planes on order?

If I have a vote: Get rid of those EBx and ECx frames and send something 'fresh' to CPT for a change

Not sure if its the right thread, but any more news on Premium Economy would be great. I hope it's not too expensive to either purchase or use points to upgrade. Flying long haul in Y, my backside/back is killing after 20 hours...

EK has only 8 A380 on order and FZ cannot further expand as B737 MAX is grounded.
Not sure if B77X will be delivered as planned in 2021.
Big expansion will only take place starting 2023 once B789 and A359 arrive.

long term plan:

subject to bilateral BER and STR
GOT, TLS, AGP (suitable destination for B789/A359)
4th daily to MAN
3rd daily to ZRH, DUS, MAD
2nd daily to CPH, OSL, LED, WAW, VCE
FRA, MUC, AMS, FCO, MXP, VIE to be served only by A380

AustralAsia

Langkawi, Penang, Pune
secondary cities in China e.g. CTU, HGH, SZX, KMG, XIY, CKG, NKG, XMN and Indonesia e.g. Medan, Surabaya (suitable destination for B789/A359)
2nd daily to ICN, TPE, SGN, HAN, PER, ADL
A380 to HND
key cities like HKG, BKK, SIN, SYD, MEL to be served only by A380
enhancement of QF partnership from SIN, SYD and MEL (e.g. SYD-CHC and SIN-MEL to be flown by QF; QF to launch Darwin/Cairns-SIN with EK Code-Share)

America

subject to bilaterlas more destinations in Canada (YVR, YYC, YUL), ATL, BOG
A380 to ORD and BOS (or 2nd daily B77W)
2nd daily to LAX, SFO, IAD

Have not seen a press release, but seasonal increase from June 5th to Aug 16th for TPE was in the booking system already.
3 extra flights a week, using 3-class 77Ws to go along with the daily A380.
Hope that become a year-round second daily soon

I'm hanging out for a TNR connection. That place desperately needs more tourism funded biodiversity protection.
