Emirates Posts Record Full-Year Net as A380s Lure Passengers
By Tamara Walid and Stefania Bianchi - May 10, 2011
Bloomberg

Emirates, the world’s biggest airline by international traffic, said annual earnings surged 43 percent to a record as it attracted more passengers using a growing fleet of Airbus SAS A380 superjumbos.

Net income in the year ended March 31 increased to $1.6 billion from $1.1 billion a year earlier, Chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al-Maktoum said at a news conference in Dubai. Profit at the main airline unit jumped 52 percent to $1.5 billion.

The Middle East’s biggest carrier is building the largest superjumbo fleet as it seeks to establish Dubai as an inter- continental travel hub and win passengers from Air France-KLM (AF) Group and Deutsche Lufthansa AG. (LHA) It’s also fending off local challengers Qatar Airways and Abu Dhabi’s Etihad, and redeployed capacity amid unrest in Arab states and the Japanese earthquake.

“Despite unforeseen challenges in the form of political instability and shocking natural disasters,” Emirates produced its “its best ever result,” Sheikh Ahmed said, adding the airline will grow at a double-digit rate this year and next.

Group sales surged 26 percent to $15.6 billion as Emirates flew 31.4 million people in the year, an increase of 14 percent. The load factor, or proportion of seats filled, was 80 percent and cargo sales revenue rose 28 percent to $2.4 billion.

Emirates has 90 A380s on order after last year agreeing to buy a further 32 with a list price of $11 billion and is targeting a fleet of 120. The only restriction on the expansion is airport space, President Tim Clark has said.

The current fleet stands at 152 Airbus and Boeing aircraft, with around 200 more worth in excess of $68 billion on order, excluding options, according to the Emirates website.

Airlines stand to earn almost 50 percent less this year than in 2010 as rising oil prices limit the benefits of a rebounding economy, the International Air Transport Association predicted in March. IATA cut its forecast for industry profit to $8.6 billion from the $9.1 billion projected earlier.

Plenty of airlines in the West get government bailouts and support at times of need. The airlines are also closely connected to air rights negotiations held at the national government level.

Emirates is to start using A380 to Johannesburg from 1 October.

That will bring 3 airlines daily with A380: AF, LH and EK.

How many other airports in the world, which is not and will not be a home base of an airline with A380, receives 3 different airlines daily with A380?

Can only think of possibly JFK and LAX?

During summer-season (Nov-Mar) all 3 will be landing at JNB within 50minutes:
LH at 10:00
AF at 10:45
EK at 10:50

Like I mentioned earlier, the difference is that Emirate is government funded and owned. Compare Emirates' structure to Lufthansa, Korean Air, Hawaiian Airlines or even ANA airlines. By "plenty", a highly vague word, named at least 20 "western" airlines that received bailouts. Better start Google (proudly American made search engine ) searching boy.

LHR : EK, SQ, QF

Tokyo NRT : AF, LH, SQ

JFK indeed with AF, LH and EK

LAX has only QF

CDG might receive the first China Southern A380 which would join EK, SQ and of course AF.

East Asia & Australia is more then i initially thought, Passenger seat factor and revenue per seat is highest on these routes.

Aircraft in Fleet - 151
Aircraft on Order - 193
Passengers Carried - 31,400,000

So, only JFK and NRT, and now JNB.

LHR will have BA and Virgin eventually with A380, home-based carriers, CDG already has their home-based carrier AF with A380.

Only JFK, NRT and JNB will receive as many A380s while not having a home-based carrier operating or on order with A380s.

You need to first quantify what exactly is Emirates receiving from the UAE government, where it shows up on their financials, and why haven't protectionist Western governments appealed to the WTO to stop them from entering their markets on unfair competition terms?

Suggest you also stay away from Western sources as they're susceptible to skews in their opinions.
