QF was desperate to turn around its loss-making international division, which forced them to get into bed with their biggest competitor. Unless BA wants to stop flying to Australia altogether with their aircraft and only stop in Dubai / Doha, why need to partner with EK/QR?

Well, firstly QR have bought a large share of IAG, so a partnership of some sort will happen.

And secondly, I see it as a potential win-win. QR are restricted to 14 weekly flights to Australia, which they already utilize. This could be an opportunity for BA to add a huge amount of potential transfer passengers that QR simply cannot cater for, as much as they would love to.

If QR propose this sort of arrangement, it would be silly for BA not to study the possibility, which doesn't necessarily have to be a removal of the SIN-SYD flight, but potentially expansion.

10% is hardly large and not enough to sway board decisions. Besides, BA and QR are already in the same oneworld alliance.

Isn't BA subject to UK-Australia flight caps as well? If British carriers haven't maximized their quota, why not just funnel them through London rather than Doha? BA has a huge European network to do so and earn revenue on the entire journey, rather than just Doha - Australia.

Don't see much happening here, basically Qatar like investing in London, or British companies, and assets. What's really in it for BA if they fly to Doha???

Let's not forget it's just not BA, but we also have Iberia, and Aer Lingus in the IAG group.

EK have access to 100 flights into Australia if I remember correctly, and they haven't used up all they're potential slots yet. Even though Qantas is part of OW I cant see them going in Qatar's favor over night, unless Qatar are thinking long term strategy when the Emirates Qantas deals ends in eight years, hmmm.

EY have Virgin in Australia also so it's not going to be easy for Qatar.

Come to mind whats to say Qatar wouldn't flip the bill for that new visionary mega airport west of London on the water/sea/ocean, sorry forgot the name. Now that would be something, and very much achievable cause they do have the money.

EY and EK have ties with VA and QF respectively, the availability of domestic connections and tie-ins with local frequent flyer programs will really limit any impact QR/BA would have on the traffic mix.

If I were to fly EK or EY from YYZ to UAE, which airline would offer better service in coach class? I am leaning towards EY. They brough JU, and brought hope and very bright future.

EK. EY generally has a better service, but on the YYZ route, EY puts their B77W with the uncomfortable 3-4-3 seating layout, whilst EK puts the much more comfortable A380.

Here's something new...

Emirates will convert its Dubai-New York (JFK) via Milan (Malpensa) service from a B777-300ER to an A380, meaning that all Dubai-New York services will be operated with the Superjumbo aircraft. It will start on 1 June 2015, and the flight currently being operated with the A380 on the Dubai-Milan sector of the journey (EK091/092) will see the B777-300ER operating instead. Overall A380 operation to Milan will remain once daily.

Schedule:

EK205 DXB0945 1420MXP1610 1900JFK 388 D
EK206 JFK2220 1215+1MXP1405+1 2210+1DXB 388 D

Now that should knock the teeth out of the competition. Going from a possible shelving of the route through the Italian courts to up gauging to the SJ.

Wow, that's really going to make Delta angry! They already hate the ME3 and EK especially. I do question EK's motives behind the up gauge. Considering the timing of this announcement, I feel like its mainly to get back at the US carriers complaining about the ME3 being unfair subsidized competition. Although if I'm being honest, if I were in charge of a European or American airline, I'd complain about the ME3 as well. Maybe not EK, but QR and EY are clearly subsidized airlines with big losses.

I think EK is going to announce more Europe to USA routes soon, wherever they are allowed.

Hahahaha

I flew NCE-YYZ via JFK on DL. I was bussed in some half century old terminal. My connection to YYZ was moved three times. Typical commie style method when they keep going from 6pm to 7pm, and all the way to the midnight. It is a joke in its best. At the end, they brought some CRJ200 without AC.

Yes, US airlines are terrible. Although Delta has improved their long haul experience recently, but its still far behind the quality of service that the ME3 offer in all classes.
