EK's big historical strength is their load forecasting system - it is eerily accurate.

I've seen flights which have been overbooked by 50-60 in Y, yet the forecast load was 98%, and it ended up...

Allegedly about 5000-7000 plats, and about 100-150 iO (excluding the customary iO status for the relevant local non-flyers, which numbers about another 100).

FWIW I'm told that...

A great vintage from a great producer, just entering, imho, its peak - if that isn't evidence EK's wine list isn't put together by someone who lives and loves wine, nothing is!
