Back to topic,

I have some very interesting news regarding the retirement of some EK aircraft in 2012.

EK77W posted this on another forum, would like to share with you.

All 8x A343 + 7x A332 will be retired in 2012.

AFAIK EK will receive 11 A380 (A6-EDT up to A6-EED) in 2012.

Q1 A6-EDT (should be used for the 3rd LHR rotation)
Q2 A6-EDU, A6-EDV, A6-EDW
Q3 A6-EDX, A6-EDY, A6-EDZ
Q4 A6-EEA, A6-EEB, A6-EEC, A6-EED

5 more in Q1 2013 (A6-EEE - A6-EEI)

Anyone knows how many B77W will join the fleet or is there any site to check it?

The phase out of 8 A343 and 7 A332 looks huge. I mean all current A343 flights - MUC, DUS, VCE, NCE, LED, ACC-ABJ, DKR, BLR (each daily), HYD (twice daily) - will see an upgrade to a B777 (maybe some will switch to an A345).
Another 8-10 flights per day currently operated by an A332 will also see an upgrade to A345 or B777 (not to an A343 cause they'll leave the fleet) cause 7 A332 will leave the fleet. I hope NCL and DUR will get a B777 soon.

That means if there will be new routes/destinations despite GIG-EZE, DUB, LUN-HRE and SEA (DFW is also new but it's the IAH flight so no new a/c needed) some other current A332 flights have to upgrade to an A345 or higher. Or EK will launch new routes with A345 or B777 in the near future.

Emirates parks Indian taxi in Copenhagen Airport



On the way out to Pier B at Copenhagen Airport, it may well be that some passengers have looked a second time and asked themselves whether they took the right path. Here, Emirates namely as part of their marketing position with an Indian taxi. This is to signal the company's strength in the Indian market, where Emirates currently flies to 10 destinations, making them the strongest foreign company in India.

India is a destination where some traffic from Scandinavia, which makes it an interesting and attractive market for Emirates out of Copenhagen.

Emirates arrival in Copenhagen is now considered a great success. In less than four months, the high-flying Middle Eastern airline sat heavily on Scandinavia's largest airport, and nothing indicates that the success stops here.

Emirates currently flies to Copenhagen with an Airbus A330-200 seating 237 passengers, but already the first January 2012 is upgraded to a Boeing 777-200 with seating for 290 passengers.

Scheduled for this Boeing 777-200 only be inserted in Copenhagen from the first February, but it is now accelerated by one month.

Obama claims share of credit for huge Boeing deal

The Lion Air deal topped this week’s previous record Boeing order. The Chicago-based aircraft maker kicked off the Dubai Airshow with the announcement of an order from Emirates airline for 50 Boeing long-range 777-300ERs worth $18 billion at list price.

At the same show Boeing also sealed a deal with Qatar Airways for two 777 freighters for $560 million.

The Lion Air deal was likely a major victory for Boeing over European rival Airbus.

UAE stings Dassault’s 'uncompetitive and unworkable' Rafale bid

A top United Arab Emirates military and political leader closed the Dubai air show by unleashing a rare, rhetorical attack on Dassault for submitting "unworkable" terms in an attempt to close a long-awaited deal for up to 60 Rafale fighters.

Dubai Customs scotch rumours about helicopter

Ahmad Mahboub Musbeh, Chief Executive of the Customers Management Sector at Dubai Customs, said the mini helicopter is usually used by aviation fans for short distance flights at aviation clubs in many countries where they fly in designated areas far away from airports and prohibited areas.

“It only accommodates two persons, and the helicopter, which was discovered by customs inspectors at Jebel Ali Inspection centre, would not cause any harm or damage...” Musbeh said.

I told you before and I will tell you again - you were banned before and it will happen again.

Stop insulting other forumers, quoting articles without sources and spam posting irrelevant articles.

This is an intersting development....


Emirates Airline to offer complimentary visas for Canadians
http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/499036

I see it as more of a stab at Canadian Airlines, rather than a thaw in relations

That just made my day Face.

Any progress is good news, and I can see Canada finally realizing they have to treat the UAE with a little more respect in the future.

Another reason is because the mighty Canadian economy is starting to show signs of flat lining.

Air Canada will also have to learn how to be more competitive, and give other Canadian companies the opportunity to the Middle East export market.

EK77W has corrected part of his post on Flyertalk.

Instead of seven 332's being retired from the fleet in 2012, it is four airframes now. I think two of the airframes will be going to Virgin Australia.

Thanks for the support.

I chat with a lot of the guys on Flyertalk about aviation, our experiences, and we send each other links here, and there. We all post because of the love of aviation, nothing more, nothing less. Nobody makes any money out of it, it's all about the passion of sharing aviation news.

If I copy - paste here, and there, its simply because I don't have the time, that's all. Better any news, than no news at all. When you build a forum relationship over time with other members, then they don't care if that is done, nor would I if some one else did that with my posts.

Another thing that helps is some sort of common aviation knowledge, it goes a long way. We try to put a little more depth into our posts, instead of the average news articles every one can read in the local paper.

I Hope our thread continues to be what it always was, our UAE online aviation Mecca.

My two cents.
