I'm not sure on the intricacies of upgrade priority, but this has surely not been the case in my personal experiences. In fact, on our 'confirmed' J class upgradable to F tickets, we'll often only be...

Sorry that meant to say KAN.

Any of those destinations might be a stretch for the range of the 738. Perhaps with the 7M8 and 7M9 joining FZ's fleet over the next year we'll see routes like these...

With the ongoing pilot shortage EK is facing and yield pressures, I would be surprised to see much expansion in 2019. The current plan has 13 77Ws leaving over 2019 which will surely help reduce the...

I would suspect that the truth is somewhere between this and EK management claiming there's no pilot shortage. I fear that the ~15 77Ws parked at DWC and the deferred 380s are more a problem of staff...

I suspect we'll see the newly configured 77Ls phased-in on routes like SEA and FLL where there's less F class demand.

Interesting to note that:



Both UPS and FedEx have fairly substantial operations in the UAE. Both of these should surely count as 'major US airlines'.

The chances of getting an aircraft with the new J class is significantly lower for the OP since DPS is a 2-class usually, and the new J class is only on 3-class aircraft.

It will usually be a bit less for A380 pilots, but those estimates wouldn't be far off for the Boeing side of things. Also worth mentioning that when the A330/340 was still around, those pilots were...
