The 1st 787 for Qatar will go to the Farnborough International Airshow next month, then it will go back to the factory for the final preparations for the actual delivery that should take place in late July or early August. Later in August Qatar will start to use it on the Doha - London route, just on 1 of their 5 daily flights. In total Qatar will receive 5 787s this year.

With new features and new children’s products to come, Emirates stays at the head of the pack inflight

DUBAI, U.A.E., 31st May 2012: In its on-going efforts to invest in the latest entertainment content and newest systems, Emirates has recently upgraded the hardware on its new Boeing 777 fleet to bigger, much wider, and digitally-enhanced screens for its winning inflight entertainment system ice (Information, Communication and Entertainment); bringing it in premium quality to every seat in Emirates First, Emirates Business, and Economy Class.














Screenshot of the enhanced screens and handsets.






































Passengers will now be able to enjoy Emirates’ award-winning entertainment with wider personal TV screens: 27-inch in First Class, 20-inch in Business Class and 12.1 inch in Economy Class-an increase from the 10.9 inch screen-making the latter the biggest in the world. Additionally, Emirates’ new screens feature high definition (HD) resolution, developed by Panasonic Avionics Corporation (Panasonic), making it one of the world’s first commercial airlines to install such state-of-the-art technology. With the new cutting-edge HD-enabled screens, Emirates passengers will now enjoy video content in bright, vivid colour and ultra-sharp detail.
The new hardware will complement Emirates new, enhanced Graphical User Interface (GUI), developed by Panasonic and Emirates, which was recently launched and designed specifically to make content and system features easier to navigate; bringing the huge range of choice across information, communication and entertainment to the passenger’s fingertips. Through a staggering choice of over 1300 channels of entertainment, including over 300 movies from around the world, hundreds of TV choices and thousands of music tracks from contemporary to classical, ice Digital Widescreen provides passengers with one of the world’s best inflight experiences.

The GUI, which is unique to Emirates, includes a wide range of advanced capabilities that enhances the distinctiveness and elegance of Emirates’ inflight system, ice Digital Widescreen. The new experience includes the ability to move around the entertainment system by “swiping” or “scrolling”, just like a consumer tablet device and discovering the vast library of media and entertainment that is available on Emirates, send SMS and email messages, explore the moving map application, watch the in-flight landscape cameras, and access live text news.

The enhanced screens and GUI will be introduced on all new Boeing 777 joining the Emirates fleet and subsequently over the next year on Emirates’ A380 aircraft. The system will be available in all classes of service, an Emirates standard.

“Emirates’ goal is to ensure maximum comfort and choice for passengers during their in-flight entertainment, communications and inflight experience,” said Adel Al Redha, Emirates Executive Vice President Operations and Engineering. “In this, like other areas of its operation, Emirates seeks to lead the industry; enabling our customers to get the very most out of their Emirates journey.”

As a top airline for family travel, the new ice system is an integral part of providing an entertaining experience to Emirates’ young ‘globalistas.’ The children’s travel experience will soon be further enhanced with a complete range of new toys aimed at both pre-school and older children. Pre-school children can look forward to a range of colourful monster characters in the exclusively designed ‘Fly With Me Monster’ collection. For older children, Emirates will soon offer a range of new products co-designed with iconic brand Quicksilver which include a branded travel journal, wallet and playing cards. This new offering along with an existing dedicated children’s menu onboard with its own colourful livery, will provide for an entertaining and memorable travel experience for Emirates’ young passengers.

Etihad Airways raises hens, bees to beat competition
(Reuters/WCARN.com, June 22)


Quote:
Etihad Airways, battling to distinguish itself from rival Gulf Arab carriers, has bought 200 hens and three beehives as part of the fight to win customers by appealing to their palates.

The state-backed Abu Dhabi airline, which competes against Dubai-owned Emirates airline and Qatar Airways, said on Thursday its new hens and bees will produce eggs and honey to be served exclusively to its passengers.


The airline is also developing "a line of signature pickles", all grown at an organic farm in Abu Dhabi.


"We are thrilled to be the only airline in the world offering organic eggs and honey directly from our own locally raised hens and bees," Etihad said in a statement detailing its poultry plans.


The eggs from the free-range hens will be used in first-class dishes, including "the hugely popular 'eggs any style' breakfast option," prepared by the airline's onboard chefs.


The three Gulf Arab airlines are battling for dominance and frequently top each other with new levels of luxury. Emirates airline offers shower facilities to first class passengers on its Airbus A380 jumbo jets.

An Etihad Airbus A320-200, registration A6-EIG performing flight EY-262 from Peshawar (Pakistan) to Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), was climbing out of Peshawar's runway 17 when the right hand engine (V2527) ingested a bird prompting the crew to return to Peshawar, where the aircraft landed safely about 30 minutes after departure.

A passenger reported the right hand engine ingested a bird prompting the crew to return to Peshawar. The right hand engine emitted unusual loud noise, the aircraft landed about 30 minutes after departure. There was visible damage to the right hand engine's fan blades.

The flight was cancelled, the passengers were rebooked onto other flights.

So the hens would be raised in an air-conditioned farm in Abu Dhabi? Would be awfully cruel to subject them to the desert summer heat.

Emirates Expands into Spain, Japan and Iraq
(WCARN.com/Gulf News, July 2)

Quote:
Emirates is expanding its flights to both the East and the West this month.


While Spain takes a run at its third consecutive major football title, Emirates will triple flights to the country, with the launch of a daily service to Barcelona from Tuesday (July 3).


The new Barcelona link comes two days after the launch of a second Emirates flight to Madrid today.


Speaking at a media gathering in Barcelona to mark the launch, Thierry Antinori, Emirates' executive vice president, passenger sales worldwide, said: "The new Barcelona flight is the culmination of a very significant increase in our services to Spain. In the space of 48 hours, we will have tripled flights to this market in a clear demonstration of our commitment to Spain."


Emirates Airlines also announced that it will now be offering daily flights to Tokyo on the Airbus A380 aircraft. The announcement was made to mark the 10th anniversary of Emirates' flights to Tokyo.


Flight TK 318 to Tokyo was greeted by a traditional water cannon salute upon its landing in Narita International Airport.



Commitment to Japan


Richard Jewsbury, Emirates' senior vice president of commercial operations for the Far East and Australasia, said that launching Airbus A380 flights to Tokyo highlights the carrier's continuous commitment towards Japan.


Emirates Airlines also announced yesterday adding three extra flights between Dubai and Basra starting August 1.


The extra flights will increase the service from four per week to a daily flight service.


Saj Ahmad, chief aviation analyst at StrategicAero Research, attributes Emirates' expansion to the Iraqi southern port city to the absence of Iraqi airlines.


"There is a massive air transport void in the country and carriers like Emirates are filling that gap," he added, "Basra is an economically strong city, linked closely with oil production and other industries and there is a growing middle class population that want to travel in and out of the surrounding areas."


Ahmad expects that until Iraqi Airways revives itself, airlines like Emirates will look forward to more expansion and increased frequencies between many cities like Erbil, Baghdad, Najaf and Basra.


"For Emirates, Iraq represents an opportunity for us to expand our business. We will continue to invest in Iraq, empowering the local economy and helping it expand its business and tourism presence," Ahmad Khoury, Emirates' senior vice president, commercial operations, Gulf, Middle East and Iran, said in a statement.

That plane next to the A380 is completely dwarfed. Amazing. It looks like A320 or B737. Cant tell.
