Did you know that Airbus gave EK a 319CJ a few days ago as a thank you for all the business, and so they can have easier access to the plants.

BTW EK have a permanent office in Boeing and Airbus.

There's actually a lot of work involved for an airline to accept an airframe from the manufacturer. Everything from multiple checks, tests to the financial aspect, etc, etc and with EKs huge backlog its simply common sense to house them there on a permanent bases. EKs owners are also one of the biggest share holders of EADS, don't know any other airline that's a stake holder in EADS or Boeing company.

As we can see EK have an airframe or even multiple airframes on the 380 and 777 assembly lines and soon to come on the 350 production line.

an A319CJ? Man, EK must be a true VIP for Airbus indeed. I hope the paint will be made either plain or in complete EK colors so that Emirates can show that this is what we got for continuous business with the European aircraft manufacturer... Or probably just keep it nondescript.

That truly makes sense. I'd really say that Emirates truly wants to be a global airline with a global reach while providing excellent passenger service across all its cabins (P, F, J, and Y). And having permanent offices on both Airbus and Boeing simply means that both aircraft manufacturers trust EK to provide quality service for its passengers, especially with their huge fleet of A380s. I then wonder: when will it operate the A380 to places like LAX, SFO, and others that can be reached with a B777 today?

EK does not operate their A380s to LAX, SFO, or DFW (to an lessor extent) because it would not make EK any money. Those are some of the longest routes in the world and for EK. They would have to remove seats to make the plane be light enough to carry enough fuel for the trip. The 777s have that capability and pretty soon the A380s will too.

I'm thinking about when Airbus will have a modified version of the A380 to cover such distances because a lot of discussions have been made about it for some time.

There already is an increased MTOW A380 variant, which entered into service a couple of weeks ago. With the modification EK could, technically, send the A380 to West coast USA.

If that came to service, I wonder two things:

• What's the seating configuration like?
• What's the maximum range that it can reach?

I believe the seating configuration is the same, and regarding range I would like to let someone with more knowledge on the subject to answer that.

Remember: EK's A380s now operate in two different configurations:

- 38M has 517 seats
- 38L has 489 seats

So I wonder which configuration will the A380 MTOW have?

Both MSN113 and MSN116 have a ULR configuration with 489 seats and a MTOW of 575t. These are the new frames with the increased wing twist. EK is scheduled to take delivery of 6 more ULR configured A380s during their financial year April 1 2013 - March 31 2014.

Emirates Profit Jumps 34% as Gulf Carrier Swells A380 Fleet

By Robert Wall - May 9, 2013 3:34 PM GMT+0200 | Bloomberg.com



Emirates, the world’s No. 1 airline by international traffic, boosted full-year profit 34 percent as it added routes using the largest fleet of Airbus SAS (EAD) superjumbos.

Net income increased to 3.1 billion dirhams ($845 million) in the 12 months to March 31 from 2.3 billion dirhams a year earlier, the Dubai-based carrier said today in a statement, buoyed by a 17 percent gain in revenue to 77.5 billion dirhams.

Emirates added 34 new planes in the year, including 10 double-decker A380s, as it seeks to establish Dubai as hub for inter-continental transfer traffic and strip business from rivals including Air France-KLM Group (AF) and Deutsche Lufthansa AG. (LHA) The passenger total reached 39.4 million, a gain of 5.4 million.

“The year ahead will again be more profitable than the last,” Chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said in a statement. “We continue to invest heavily in our future.”

The Persian Gulf carrier added 10 destinations last year, including Washington, Adelaide and Barcelona, and has announced four new routes already for 2013 -- among them a Milan to New York connection that avoids its Dubai hub.
