FlyDubai might not take EK's older A330s for a simple reason: the seating configuration of EK's A330s may not suit FlyDubai's business model, in which it offers reclining seats and more classes (2 and 3, including F on some) that FlyDubai may not be able to accommodate, given its customer base and targets. However, with some tweaking (like what Scoot did after receiving its oldest B772s from parent Singapore Airlines), FlyDubai could use them to operate long-haul routes out of Dubai, in which it could complement some of EK's existing routes. It must be forewarned, though, that operating long-haul flights on an LCC may be quite a tough model to address unless those heading the airline know the ins and outs of the long-haul and LCC markets at the same time.

Abu Dhabi plans to more than triple passenger capacity

Quote:



Abu Dhabi plans to more than triple passenger capacity with a new airport terminal, banking on luxury travel and growth of the flag carrier Etihad Airways to provide demand.

The Midfield Terminal under construction at Abu Dhabi International Airport, with a total floor area exceeding the Pentagon and maximum capacity of 40 million passengers, is due to open in late 2017. The facility, among the world's biggest single-capacity buildings, will be home to Etihad and its partner airlines.

Dubai and Doha in Qatar are also expanding capacity at their airports and Istanbul is building an aerodrome that will be among the world's largest. Abu Dhabi's airport served 14.7 million passengers in 2012, compared with almost 58 million in Dubai.
Abu Dhabi Airport chief executive Tony Douglas said he is not concerned that there was too much capacity in the region.
"All three locations are six hours away from two-thirds of world's population," Mr Douglas said in a July 30 interview with Bloomberg at the construction site. "There are 100 capital cities within six hours of where we are."

"Am I concerned that when we open this we'll see tumbleweed blowing along the runways, empty departure halls and an aircraft control tower with everyone reading the newspaper? No, no and no," Mr Douglas said. "We can't get it open a minute soon enough."
The airport is preparing to put out a tender for the mechanical and electrical package of the terminal building within two to three weeks, Mr Douglas said. The airfield has also provisioned for a metro connection in the future.

Last year, it awarded a Dh10.8 billion contract for the construction of the terminal building to a joint venture of Arabtec Holding, TAV Construction and Consolidated Contractors.

Etihad and equity partners in talks for group plane order

Quote:
Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways is in the “final stages” of talks with plane manufacturers Boeing and Airbus and is aiming to leverage the combined purchasing power of its six equity partners to negotiate a lucrative long-term order for the group.

The seven carriers are looking at a substantial order which would take care of their aircraft needs to at least 2040, Etihad CEO James Hogan said.

The Abu Dhabi carrier currently has equity stakes in six airlines, including Germany’s Air Berlin (29.21 percent), Air Seychelles (40 percent), Virgin Australia (10.5 percent), Ireland’s Aer Lingus (2.99 percent), Air Serbia (49 percent) and India’s Jet Airways (24 percent).

Combined the group currently has a global fleet of more than 500 aircraft, which is considerably more than the 197 owned by Emirates Airlines, the 139 owned by Singapore Airlines and IAG’s 377 aircraft.

That could be some huge orders for both Boeing and Airbus.

I wonder how it will actually be done, Etihad will probably place some huge commitments and firm them up into propper orders as time goes by. By 2040 there should already be some new developments going on, I guess there will be enough flexibility in the contracts for Etihad to jump into any new plane without having to fully negociate a new deal.

Emirates will start a new service between Dubai and Sialkot from 5 November 2013, making it the airline's fifth destination in Pakistan. This flight will be operated four times weekly, and with the existing thrice-weekly flights operated by sister company flydubai (operating Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays), service to Sialkot from Dubai will become a daily, and it will be operated with an A330-200. Schedule:

EK620 DXB0415 – 0820SKT 332 x135
EK621 SKT0945 – 1235DXB 332 x135

I've already reported on that one... see previous page.

Anyways, next question: to what other destinations do you think Emirates and Etihad Airways could fly to in the future? And of the Middle Eastern carriers, which airline do you think will have the fastest growth in terms of fleet size in the near term (e.g. within 5 years)?

Etihad might place the orders at the Dubai Air Show a long with Emirates anticipated huge order for the 777X program.

We could see an announcement of the commitments already this or next month, with a firming up of a first tranche at the Dubai Airshow.

I actually expect launch orders for the 777X from Emirates, Qatar and Etihad at the show, it could be a very big launch with the help of the Gulf state carriers.

I think that Emirates should start a service to Brussels. It is "the capital of Europe" and according to my point of view, one of the most important city in Europe among those which still don't have Emirates service at theirs airports.
Maybe Emirates hasn't started yet fly tu Brussels because there is already Qatar and Etihad at BRU and the proximity of AMS, CDG, DUS (airports with Emirates service).

Yes, Brussels is definitely lacking in Emirates network, but not only.

Helsinki and Oslo are probable targets (An EK A380 already landed in Helsinki last winter, I don’t know why). Apparently, they are also interested in Toulouse and/or Marseille.

Apart from that, in Europe, I would say, maybe Seville, Turin, Naples, Bucarest, Budapest, Sofia and Minsk.

In the US, Miami and Boston were apparently planned for this year. I don't know why it has not been announced. Maybe we will see them in 2014. Other potential targets are Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Phoenix/Las Vegas (A few years ago Phoenix was planned). I would also see Dubai-Tokyo-Honolulu.

In Central/South America, Mexico City is an obvious target. I don't know if they have that city in the radar, but I hope so.

In South America, the perfect network would be something like:
Dubai-Sao Paulo.
Dubai-Rio-Lima
Dubai-Buenos Aires-Santiago
Dubai-Caracas-Bogota (Bogota was planned some day)
Dubai-Panama City

In Australasia, probably Cairns, Gold Coast and Darwin (if I remember well, EK explicitely said they are interested in these cities). They are also interested in flying to Wellington if they start the project to increase the length of the runway.

And I guess an interesting thing would be Dubai-Taipei-Fiji (They don’t fly to the Pacific Islands yet and Fiji has a strong touristic potential. I just don’t know if EK is allowed to fly to both Taiwan and continental China for political reasons).

We can also expect some additional destinations in Russia/Central Asia : Novossibirsk, Almaty, Douchanbe, Bichkek, Ashkabad, Tachkent, and maybe Urumqi, in western China. Hanoi could be good too.

That’s what I would say but I may be compltely wrong.

Maybe we should bet…..

I like your thinking. Mexico City would require a stop somewhere along the flight. It is a high Altitude airport that none of Emirates planes could make a flight with a full load and make any money off it. The U.S. is a huge guessing game. Phoenix would be one of the last flights or destination that Emirates would add. It is too close to Los Angeles. Las Vegas could connect the Middle East to the gambling capitol of the US. South America and Russia and Finland areas are under served. We can expect to see those areas become Emirates and the other airlines main area of growth with secondary markets also.

Apart from what you have mentioned already. I would include Bali/Denpasar (most probably EK's next destination in SE Asia if not Hanoi). Japan is still underserved by Emirates as well. It's likely that they will fly back to Nagoya soon. China still has a lot of room for growth (potential destinations: Chengdu, Xiamen, Hangzhou, Wuhan ...) as well as only the 3 major gateways to China are served so far. And when their relationship with the canadian government gets better, I believe they will add Montreal and Vancouver to their targets.

Most of the narrow body aircraft have, only a few older non-refurbished planes don't have. =)

Maybe its a starting point for a larger stake/shareholding.
Virgin Australia stake for example will increase to 19.5 slowly over the coming months.
