Technically no, EK can't fly the SJ to Mexico City because of the airports height above sea level.

Flying to Mexico City would not be a problem, it is the return. Can't take off at MEX at MTOW, but could land there after a MTOW departure from DXB.

That why I would see them making a stopover on the way back.

For example a round trip Dubai-Mexico-Cancun-Dubai. As Cancun is right by the sea, it should be fine and they already have some round trips like the one to Bamako and Dakar for example (even if it's not for an altitude problem).

If they want to expand in South America, I think they should do the same for Caracas and Bogota: a round trip Dubai-Bogota-Caracas-Dubai

Have you seen the situation in Venezuela lately? While I agree that, geographically speaking, CCS is the perfect stopover for ULH flight out of BOG, politically speaking it's a train wreck. Most airlines are pulling out of Caracas due to the lack of payment by Venezuelan government to the airlines (Venezuelan government has a very tight exchange control) and the political situation between Colombia and Venezuela isn't the best at the moment. There even a request by Colombian authorities for the capture and imprisonment of Nicolás Maduro and several party and army leaders for crimes against humanity.

Airbus: America now a major market for A380 for non US carriers

BEN SANDILANDS | SEP 14, 2015 8:14PM

Quote:
Airbus CEO Fabrice Brégier, says American carriers are now in a position to decide if they want to participate in growing their international market share following a highly successful period of restructuring their operations and becoming profitable.

He told a media briefing in Mobile, Alabama, where the new Airbus US Manufacturing Facility will open Monday morning, that this might encourage reconsideration of the merits of the A380 by some of the country’s flag carriers.

“People often say the US isn’t an A380 market”, he said, “but for those outside the US it is a major A380 market, with up to seven non-American carriers serving US cities with this jet every day.”

However when asked if Airbus was closer to making a decision on when it would proceed with a new engine tech or NEO A380, M Brégier said “No.”

There is considerable industry and airline talk that more certainty as to what Airbus will do to bring a new Rolls-Royce engine to an A380 flying other airframe upgrades and a stretch beyond it’s current capacity could occur at the Dubai air show early in November.

At the same show in 2013 Emirates ordered 100 more A380s and launched the Boeing 777-X series with an order for 150 of what will become the largest capacity Boeing twin-engined jet when it enters service in 2020. Emirates has said on many occasions that both types are crucial to its business model.

...Really ?, and who made this request is this ?, you also believe the infant lies and ridiculous inept President Santos? ... You talk about crimes against humanity ?, which is the main producer of cocaine in the world? , Colombia, and is it not the production and trafficking of drugs, one of the most heinous crimes against humanity? .... that country is accused of killing true (crimes against humanity) as those caused by known "false positives "as confirmed by the mass graves found in the Sierra de La Macarena, which speaks of 2,000 or more bodies discovered? (... See this article: http://www.elespectador.com/noticias...erpos-macarena) , Colombia ... which president was accused of encouraging and participating in the drug business, to the point that was included as requested by the US State Department as the No. 82 most sought drug lord (... even published the complaint "Newsweek" magazine ...)? ... Alvaro Uribe, former president of Colombia ... they can accuse the government of Venezuela?, to bring order and defend a border to which the Colombian State has been abandoned for decades, delivered to paramilitaries, smugglers, drug traffickers and ordinary bandits? ... really you should read a little more and stop being so naive about the kind of politicians who govern Colombia ...

...sorry for the O.T ...

I wonder why they don't fly direct to Auckland? All Emirates flights to New Zealand stop in either Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne first.

The AKL & CHC services increase the frame utilisation opposed to remaining in SYD,MEL,BNE for 12+ hours costing $$$$ in parking fees.

If you had seen the loads between MEL, BNE and SYD to AKL, and the prices for air fares, you would understand why.

I wouldn't be surprised if those legs are loss-making, but less loss-making than the cost of parking at BNE, SYD and MEL.

Also, due to the JV between EK and QF, I'm under the impression that they must keep current frequencies and seat numbers, so flying direct DXB-AKL would have to be an additional flight rather than a replacement of any of the 1-stop services.

There is also another reason that I just realized last week, doing trans-tasman flights has also become part of the approval conditions for the Emirates-Qantas alliance. Read that in this very recent CAPA Analysis : "Emirates and Qantas are required to offer a minimum amount of trans-Tasman capacity as part of the approval conditions for their alliance. Future Qantas decreases would need to be met with increases from Emirates, potentially meaning Emirates could have more trans-Tasman capacity on a fifth freedom basis than Qantas does on a third and fourth freedom basis. "

These A380's are amazing. Rode Emirates Economy, and it was way better than regular Economy (comparing with Etihad's Long Haul flights)
