Something we haven't talked about lately is the UAE's next fighter aircraft choice.

Not so long ago it was all about the Rafael, maybe the Typhoon, or even the Eagle/Super Hornet.

Now those days are gone, and it's a the F-35, and SU-35 who seem to be the front runners.

Now this is actually the most interesting aviation news out of the UAE of late, and I'm really interested to see which decision will be made.

What's your take on this guys???

SU-35? I would be stunned if UAE buys Russian planes. But then Saudia bought Russian S-400 so I guess anything can happen. And UAE is pumping money into MC-21. Still SU-35 is a dinosaur compared to F-35 and even the latest European fighter jets. They should at least try to get SU-57 if they must buy Russian.

In India it is just going to be cut throat competition!! Besides the airlines in India are ultra-powerful from a lobbying standpoint, that will go against any airline with foreign ties there!!
True but if they could use the airline to feed EK and the Dubai hub, then even running the Indian low cost airline at a loss will be worth it.

They should enter those other markets first before other airlines set up and start taking market share.

How they did struggle to make an Indian route work?!? And why are they making all these changes before their new CEO joins the company? Seems odd...

I honestly believe EY's demise has helped EK and QR do well even in this tough climate with heavy competition.

Probably they hired someone from Emirates to do the route planning for them now!!

Seems routing is AUH-ANC-LCK-MIA, so Columbus is still active.

Miami was part of their around world 747-8f service couple of years back.

EY dropping Tehran and Entebbe as well. Tehran is a bit of a shock tbh. For EK Tehran is one of their bigger destinations so I'm shocked that EY couldn't make it work. This will have a knock on effect for their already reduced LAX flight as California has a very large Persian population.

From what I've heard (and based on my personal experience), EY service quality is dropping fast. The clients who have contracts are going to be dropping EY and switching to QR/EK now- which already offer better airport facilities and timing/frequency of flights. Things are not looking too good and expect massive aircraft cancellations shortly.

EK on the other hand has just announced London Stansted - 10th flight to London... And QR beats both with a huge amount of expansion to secondary markets.

Maybe Tehran is political?

I can vouch for EY's terrible service, and that was 5 months ago. Probably gone down even further. I will never fly EY again.

Iranians prefer TK over Arab carriers.

EY downgauged Tehran to A320 just a year or so after it was launched from 77W, doubt it was a big market for them, also no Iranian carrier serves AUH whereas many do DXB.

That's what so strange. So many Iranians live in Dubai and maintain links with Iran but the same is not the case in AD...
