it is really weird that Qatar airlines does not have direct flight to the american west Coast, and I dont understand why Emirates didnt open more flights to Canadian cities like Vancouver, Calgary or Edmonton and going just with 3 weekly to Toronto?

I may be wrong but its my understanding that the Canadian authorities restrict the number of Emirates flights into Canada.

Actually Qatar Airways expressed an interest in serving Atlanta a while back along with Detroit.

Anyways those "connecting opportunities" you are talking about in Atlanta are only limited to Delta Airlines as they pretty much own that airport.

What exactly is there in ATL besides Coke? Why'd any airline fly there unless they want to interline with Delta.

Atlanta is also the home to CNN, the world leader in cable news, as well as Home Depot (a large hardware big box store in the US and Canada), AT&T (telecommunications), and UPS (regional headquarters; the world headquarters is in Louisville, KY). With all those companies in Atlanta, having an airport that can allow very quick and efficient movement of goods and people is crucial to keep the city's economy going, and Delta Airlines plays a key role in the city's economic development.

Going back to the Middle Eastern story, though, I suspect that if (and this is a big if) any Middle Eastern carrier would like to operate nonstop to ATL, it must make sure that it will eventually code share with Delta to take advantage of its huge hub operations, especially that it is a catch basin for so many Southern states, ranging from Louisiana to the Carolinas to Florida.

Abu Dhabis Etihad doubles stake in Virgin Australia

Quote:
Abu Dhabis Etihad Airways has more than doubled its stake in Virgin Australia, a strategically important airline partner, to a maximum 19.9 percent.

The stronger alliance between the two carriers is likely to help them compete against the historic agreement between Dubai-based Emirates and Australian flag carrier Qantas, which launched in March and is viewed as a formidable partnership.

Etihad, which originally owned 9 percent, has been buying up Virgin shares on the Australian Stock Exchange in recent weeks and now holds more than 515m.

This comes just days after Air New Zealand upped its stake to 25.9% of Virgin Australia.

Virgin Australia's other major shareholders are Singapore Airlines and founder, Richard Branson.

Under Australian law, foreign interests can own 100% of domestic carriers, hence why the three airlines & Branson can all own significant stakes.

Does anyone know future destinations of Flydubai ?

They have 31 737-800 of the 50th ordered annunced by wiki, but 32 in other website.

Can we imagine long-haul planes in the future ?

No idea but I have a feeling FlyDubai is for short haul, Emirates is for long haul, so I can't see FlyBubai doing any long haul.

Emirates do short hauls, they fly to Iraq and Saudi Arabia.


They just do it in all wide bodies.

FlyDubai does secondary markets that Emirates has no demand for. Emirates flies short haul flights that are popular markets that people on other continents can connect to. Like JED/RUH/ERB/AMM etc. I am guessing that FlyDubai will move over to DWC when it expands more and they need more room to expand.

Turkey is a big country yet Gulf airlines concentrates much on Istanbul. How about flights to Izmir and Antalya ?

Also I wish there are flights to more points in Latin America especially Mexico City & Lima.
Mexico City for huge population and relatively strong middle class while Lima for its high growing GDP and many interesting sights in Peru.

Correct. Even EK operates its DXB-JED flight with an A380.

That's also correct. I wonder though what's the furthest FlyDubai can operate, though, with its B738s... and should the airline get long-haul aircraft, I wonder where it will operate. I mean, the potential is out there: EK will be retiring some of its aircraft soon, and FlyDubai is a sister company of Emirates, hence it could happen that FlyDubai will inherit some of EK's older aircraft for long-haul services.

Well, flights to Izmir, Antalya, or even smaller cities like Van could be served by FlyDubai, it's just that Turkish Airlines is marketing those domestic services widely that most Gulf carriers instead operate via Istanbul or Ankara so that they can save money operating charter services to other Turkish cities.

As for long-haul services to Latin America, I could suspect that Emirates or Qatar Airways could use Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro as the stopover of choice for Lima, and I hope that either airline could use a European airport as its stopover en route to and from Mexico City to avoid the hassle and expense of transiting through the United States.

No. It's for poor people. That's it. Karachi, for example, gets 4 or 5 Emirates flights and I think 10/week flydubai.

You got that wrong. Emirates operates Dubai–Karachi four times daily, while FlyDubai operates the same route twice daily, for a total of six daily flights (42 weekly rotations).

There is a complementarity between network. For exemple Cairo with EK and Alexandria for Flydubai. Flydubai didn't have business seats at his begening. That open a new market for EK lucrative passengers who would like to go in a small city of Middle East or Central Asia.

Flydubai
