Great news, it's good to see more flights to the UAE, specifically Abu Dhabi...

There will be more competition, and hopefully airfare will go down...

Good news !

I think the big issue from Emirates is that they want daily service to YYZ but were only granted 3 times a week. Hopefully they will take what they can get for now and increase in the future. Etihad's been ridiculously full on their ABU-BRU-YYZ-BRU-ABU run. They're booked solid months in advance.

It would be nice...either Dubai or Abu Dhabi would be nice...

I have relatives in Toronto that go to Dubai frequently, and they don't like going to LGA, then taking a shuttle bus or a taxi to JFK, and then to LHR in London, and finally...they get to Dubai...

It truly is not a great way to travel, hopefully this will cut time, if implemented.

Toronto to Abu Dhabi already exists through Etihad, 3 times a week so all that's left really is Emirates to Dubai. There's really no question the flights would be full, it's more a matter of Emirates being satisfied with 3 times a week instead of daily.

Interesting...hopefully it go daily, but 3 days/week is fine.

Probably if they accept the latter, the demand grows enough to make it daily?

I was under the impression that Canada and the U.A.E signed a Bilateral agreement which gives Ethiad & Emirates direct service from a Canadian hub to Dubai. And If memory serves me well Air Canada is to start service to Dubai in 3 Quarter of 2007 using the Boeing 777-200LR Equipment.

I've heard the same thing. Air Canada has been covetting Dubai for some time but has never had the aircraft to make it a profitable route. The triple 7 should solve that. They'll be using the 777 to go Toronto-Mumbai too.

...ok?

if a bilateral agreement had been signed there should have been a well publicised press release, which i cant seem to find. Hopefully the rumors of Etiahd expanding to daily are true, flights are overbooked sometimes 3 months in advance.

I read somewhere the Etihaad is expanding to daily TO-ABD flights in 2007. It will be awesome if Emirates can also start their service from TO-Dubai soon.

Why have they to go into all that? There are many European Airlines that connect Toronto with Dubai with a a few or some hours transit time in their European hub. I've done that twice.

I did a mistake...

They did used to go to London to connect with a flight to Dubai, but after Emirates made a flight between JFK to Dubai, they connected to New York instead.

This is what I had heard from an ex-Emirates employee. Basically, the bilateral agreement between Canada and the UAE allowed a Canadian airline (Air Canada) to fly to Dubai 3 times a week and Emirates Airlines to fly to Canada 3 times a week. Emirates wanted daily but was shot down because it would have taken away passengers from Air Canada's service from Toronto to Delhi. I guess now that Air Canada stops in Zurich for the Delhi run, Emirates can revisit the daily service. I too have connected in Europe to go to Dubai, but it's really not very convenient. I'd much rather have the 14 hour direct flight. And to connect in New York means changing airports from Laguardia to JFK! Not very simple...

Will the Delhi service go back to direct once AC receives more planes?

AC is supposed to start direct Delhi service again once they receive the Triple 7's. I heard they're going direct to Mumbai as well. Apparently the big problem with the direct Delhi service in the past was that the A340 wasn't fuel efficient enough, producing low yields. I know a lot of people who used to fly that route and the plane was always full...months in advance.
