I think everyone should boycott Qatar Airways and Emirates because of their stupid policies towards female cabin crew and it's so funny what Akbar al Baker (CEO of Qatar airways) said. (All this was a big sensational (effort) to target my country because of 2022, saying people have no human rights. It is not true,) its full of bullshit there are no human rights in the state of Qatar including your airlines company!

Emirates is a bit better since it allows cabin crew to take paid leave when they are pregnant but that's only after a minimum 3 years of service. QR fires you as soon as you announce that you're pregnant.

Good News is that Emirates has started serviced to Boston finally! Tim Clark says the route is performing well and that the route could go to 777-300 or double daily or possible A380 if the demand grows and stay healthy.

Yup, and in a few months we have Chicago.

Once these runway repairs finish we should see a lot of new destinations being announced.

Plus next year concourse D opens up.

Boston needs to get ready for the A380! Tim Clark has said that he wants to serve all North American destinations with the A380 eventually. That would be better for passengers as well since the A380 is the most comfortable aircraft and the 77W is too uncomfortable for ultra long haul flights in both J and Y class.

Emirates launched its daily, non-stop service between Dubai and Boston yesterday. Boston becomes the airline’s eighth US destination and the 142nd on its global network which links key tourism and trading destinations across six continents. Here are some photos from the inaugural flight — at Boston Logan International Airport.

Expect EK to also increase Russia. With Russians facing sanctions from the States, and EU l'm sure they'll like be avoiding thrm and parking they're money in the UAE.

I think it will be very tough for the EU carriers to compete with EY/EK/QR when the cost of oil hits the roof as Russia fires right back... I am sure the big three are keeping an eye.

Oil prieces will signal the end of the EU carriers if that happens. Only the ME3 can survive. Plus the EU carriers already are losing the russian passengers to the ME3. The current situation wont help. FlyDubai offers routes to smaller russian airports too that cant support daily EY/EK/QR routes.

Why they should hit the roof? Idea now is too find alternative to Russiaт suppliers. There are rumors that sanctions to Iran might be lifted. In this case, they are ready to offer oil with much more lower prices.
