Looks as though EY continues with their expansion strategy within Australia by increasing their stake in VA just below 20% by increasing their stake to 19.9%

Etihad Airways has received the Foreign Investment Review Board’s stamp of approval to increase its Virgin Australia share to 19.9 per cent, according to The Australian.

The move comes despite Etihad’s declaration it would keep its share at 10 per cent “at the moment”, the paper said.

The airline is understood to want to keep its options open, after Air New Zealand recently lifted its investment in Virgin to 23 per cent, from 20 per cent previously.

"Once the Jet deal is over we'll see what we can do moving forward working with Virgin," Etihad chief executive James Hogan said, according to The Australian.

It's a two-pronged reason:

• MNL at the moment is experiencing serious overcrowding, especially at Terminal 1 where EK and QR operate from. At the moment, the airport is carrying over 32 million passengers per annum, and its runways are already operating over the limit of around 36 movements per hour, which means unless both airines want to operate in the wee hours of the morning to connect with departing and arriving domesstic flights, the chances of operating such flights during the midday are slim, especially that so many domestic flights need to leave before 3pm in order for them to turnaround quickly and head back to Manila before sunset.

• Clark Airport, while serving as an alternate airport to MNL (at 90km away to the NW), mainly serves residents and businesses in Northern and Central Luzon, in which a lot of migrants and goods come from, especially that there are industrial parks that exist and are being built in those regions. The airport, being closer to tourist spots like Baguio City and the Hundred Islands, provides an alternate to MNL, such that passengers coming in and out of it will end up bypassing the heavy traffic around the metropolis and provide a shorter trip for thousands of tourists and residents heading to at least 15 provinces up north (given that most of them would head to those places either by bus or someone picking them up).

I understand your thoughts about Cebu or Davao being the second destination to the Philippines, but, at the moment, both airports are campaigning to the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines to make deals and allow both airports to have direct MidEast services from both destinations, especially that both are the next largest airports in the country after Manila... I would say that both airports are capable of operating such MidEast flights, it's just that those markets need to be studied first to make sure that they can fill up either a 2- or 3-class B77W (all flights to MNL are currently operated with 2-class B77Ws, by the way) and make such flights feasible.

I doubt it considering the type is being phased out of the EK fleet

Does anyone know what J seats EK is going to install on their upcoming a350 ? The same flat beds on the a380 or are they going to launch a new set of seats? Why didn't they retrofit with/install fully flat J seats on their 77Ws ?

Regarding QR, are they going to install the same J seats as the ones onboard the 787 ?

It depends actually on both airlines what kind of J seats both of them will install. It may be highly likely that EK could use its existing J class seats for its upcoming A350; however, there is also likelihood that it will introduce even better seating for a newer aircraft. And by the way, it may also be likely that EK could also put in First Class Suites on the A350, given the range that it can cover. As for QR's B787s, yes, it could also be highly likely that they will install their latest seats on their future aircraft as well, but, there comes a possibility that the seating arrangement could be altered in the process to accommodate more Y seats, if not make them 3-class (F, J, Y) all-around.

Ah yes... It depends on the route demand. Remember that EK operates multiple variants of the B777 aircraft, so it all depends on the passenger load. If for some reason the premium classes (F and J) get filled, the airline could send either a B777-200ER or B777-300 aircraft (if not the B77W or B77L).

I'd say a 2-class B77W unless its replaced by the A332 which is a down gauge in equipment & capacity.

Remember, though, that EK only operates 10 of such 2-class B77Ws to begin with, and there are quite a number of flights operating with the said aircraft type too (including MNL, BHX, and several Indian Subcontinent destinations)... so I think the A332 would be a good aircraft replacement, if not another B772.

I doubt a 3-class would be deployed on the route considering its a leisure destination and suits a 2-class frame.

A bigger question is, how many aircraft are there in EK's fleet that have a 2-class configuration, aside from the 10 B77Ws? I mean, there are so much more 3-class aircraft that it operates, and I wouldn't be surprised if those would be used as well on the route as a stopgap measure...
