They have 2 deals with Ireland and Croatia (each) and a deal with Kuwait, up to the UAE to get the finger out.

The question is, how many times does Air Canada fly from Toronto (YYZ) to Dubai (DXB)? If it's only a small number, let Emirates fly six times per week using the 777-300ER and have Air Canada put its long-range fleet of 787's and 777-300ER's to better use elsewhere.

Nah man you're wrong about it as Royal air Maroc reach double daily during summer season from Casablanca to Montreal with a daily flight thru the rest of the year. Similarly to Air Algerie that fly daily during summer to Montreal. I think it has to do with gulf Arabian airlines because not only UAE based carriers do 3 weekly, Saudi airlines and Qatar airlines fly 3 weekly to Toronto and Montreal (eventho it's not Toronto in this case) respectively. That is probably due to Transit passengers choosing the Gulf carriers over Air Canada to fly to Indian subcontinent and Far east. Another example Tunisair was granted up to a daily flight from Tunis to Montreal early in 2016 (currently 2 weekly as it was launched few months ago).

And in response to another member who talked about coach service codeshare from Seattle, Wa to Vancouver, Bc. I live in Victoria/ Vancouver and whenever I take Emirates to Seattle I carry on to Victoria or Vancouver thru Alaska airlines/ air Horizon and was never put on a bus to Canada.
Cheers all!

As Victoria is a small provincial city that is ACTUALLY located on an ISLAND OFF the coast of VANCOUVER ....and not IN VANCOUVER...it is no wonder that there is no direct codeshare bus from Seattle for you lot.

Emirates is going to have a big company meeting on the 24th of November 2017. From what I'm hearing things are not so good, and Mr. Mueller could be making some huge cut backs. Let's hope the A380's won't get the ax. I think we should start getting the details by Sunday.

Mueller is Chief Innovation officer, not COO or assistant CEO....but that might be the first announcement at the meeting.

I reckon FlyDubai is coming under Emirates if it is a big change.

sure you mean 2017? or 2 days later?

And who is this Herr Mller I've never heard about?!

but yeah things at EK are not so bright as it was. They already started cutting costs on several areas like offering no more free seat bookings and from what I read on Ben's blog today, they will start charging for your 'birthday cake' as well

Low oil revenue is really hitting the gulf countries and unfortunately the big ME3 carriers.

I meant to say 2016. Muller's the guy who came to Malaysia after they were having difficulties with the two 777 incidents.

Google "Christoph Mueller" . He is a notable airline turnaround specialist who fixed Lufthansa, Aer Lingus and Malaysian. He made €4m out of Aer Lingus last year and he wasn't even there.

He was hired by Emirates as "Chief Innovation and Digital Officer" almost 3 months ago but depending entirely on the overall economic environment when Tim retires ....he may be the next CEO.

Sounds worrying. I wonder what types of changes he will announce? Hopefully it doesn't hurt the passenger experience too much. Already passengers are noticing that EY and QR are better options for premium travel.

One rumor going around is employees with short term contracts are already being given seven days notice of work termination.

The future of the A380

Three years ago Emirates rescued the A380 aeroplane. Its own problems now cast doubt on the super-jumbos future

Oh then I definitely heard about this guy. So that's why he quit MH - to join EK! makes sense now well if he does his job well as in the past I guess he can be a good replacement for Clark. But Sir Tim Clark will always be one of my favorite businesspersons out there

We should also note that Saudia have large deliveries of wides incoming for the next few months and a mega terminal in Jeddah onstream next year to hub these wides. Not forgetting Midfield in Abu Dhabi next year either.

Competition is hotting up in the area.

I think all ME airlines are starting to show signs of cannibalizing themselves.

I heard Saudi's 20 330's short range order are going to be used for a separate full service low cost arm.

Even Turkish are feeling the pain.

I'm not 100 percent sure but I think the Saudi full service LCC airline arm will be call Flyadeal Saudi Arabia that will receive the 20 short range A330's.

Not sure Flyadeal will have any wides. They look like a narrow class LCC

They are. It was expected since the market is not big enough for so much capacity, especially in the last year or two, capacity has increased too quickly, and the market hasn't been able to absorb so much.

Turkish is doing worse that the ME3. Their own country is suffering from problems, tourism to Turkey is down significantly, people are avoiding flying them due to airport attack/political situation in Turkey etc.

EY is barely growing and EK is suffering. But surprisingly, QR (which is growing at a very high rate) is rumored to be doing well, with good load factors across the network, and they are even taking premium traffic away from EK. Of course, given that it's QR, I don't imagine their yields to be good though.

Tim Clark is intelligent, but it was his idea to purchase 140 A380's, and anyone can see that the plane is just too large for most routes.
