https://www.reuters.com/article/us-emirates-airline/emirates-clark-says-needs-better-engine-reliability-before-it-will-take-new-planes-idUSKCN1VP17A?fbclid=IwAR2Z77URCcc0DyyNtDwrnAG9zhtm1RBrUJdY0NUGW5uWX4bIuj0FwNpOYYs

Fasten your seat belts because we're going to see some huge shack ups at the DAS in November.

STC has stated EK won't accept any new airfames unless the engine manufacturers provide contractual reliability. Good luck because no new airfames today are performing 100 percent, and some are speculating he's conveniently using this as an excuse to cut, switch, reorganize, down size order's. Both QR and EY are more than satisfied operating these airfames and engines in the same conditions as Dubai.

This is why we haven't seen 359, 339, and 789/10s on the order books yet.

I'm sure EK will also try to down size the massive 778/9 order.

I hope EK don't flip flop now with their fleet the same way they did with DWC, and give their competitors space to close in, and do what they should have done.

Middle East air cargo market is world's worst performer in July

Middle Eastern airlines’ freight volumes decreased 5.5 percent in July compared to the year-ago period, the sharpest drop in air cargo demand of any region.

Globally, IATA said that demand contracted by 3.2 percent in July compared to the same period in 2018, the ninth consecutive month of year-on-year decline in freight volumes.

Freight capacity rose by 2.6 percent year-on-year in July. Capacity growth has now outstripped demand growth for the 9th consecutive month.

So DWC is dead for the next 5 years at least.

Emirates airline to remain at DXB for next decade amid DWC review

Dubai’s Emirates airline plans to stay maintain operations at its hub at Dubai International airport for another 10 years, according to president Sir Tim Clark, as Dubai Airports reviews the $36 billion master plan to transform Dubai World Central into the world’s biggest airport.

At a briefing in London, Clark said he believes that Dubai International Airport (DXB) could potentially have a capacity of 115 million passengers, up from 90 million last year.

Transferring other airlines to existing facilities at Al Maktoum could give Emirates and Flydubai a chance to expand at DXB, he added.

Don't read to much into this article because the local media as usual are tinkering with adverbs, and watering down the hole they put themselves in.

From the article,

A briefing in London, Clark said he believes that Dubai International Airport (DXB) could potentially have a capacity of 115 million passengers, up from 90 million last year.


Transferring other airlines to existing facilities at Al Maktoum could give Emirates and Flydubai a chance to expand at DXB, he added.

First they can't have that many pax if they're going to go with smaller airfames in a congested slot restricted two runway airport.

Second DXB can't just force other airlines to use DWC because the home countries of those airlines could force EK out of their 1st teir airports as well.

The Pakistan Travel Agent Association has announced to boycott Etihad Airways over Kashmir issue.

Etihad Airways is the United Arab Emirates owned airline. The boycott has been announced owing to the surged tensions over Kashmir.

Khawaja Ayub Naseem—the Chairman of the association has said that the boycott of the airline is to protest against the United Arab Emirates as the country has given the highest civilian award to the Indian Prime Minister—Narendra Modi.


He informed that a formal announcement would be made in a press conference today, where he would explain about the plan of the association for the future endeavours.

He added that they would brief the Dubai-bound visitors of the UAE’s anti-Kashmir step and would try to change their mind.

It should be noted that the government of the United Arab Emirates is facing severe criticism for disregarding the feelings and sentiments of the Kashmiris.

People are asking for a boycott to the UAE tourism for awarding the highest civil award to the Indian PM at a time when Kashmir is in mid of the Indian atrocities.

I will be very surprised if they start flying to Abu Dhabi.... given that Etihad will be adding or have added 2 more daily services (the slots they got back from Jet Airways) in addition to the 3 daily ones and they also already fly to Manchester....

Air Arabia and Etihad to launch Abu Dhabi’s first low cost airline

International travel from the capital is about to get a lot more affordable as Abu Dhabi is set to get its first low-cost passenger airline with the launch of Air Arabia Abu Dhabi.
A joint venture between Etihad and Air Arabia, the low-cost passenger airline will operate out of a hub in Abu Dhabi International Airport, and aims to cater to the growing low-cost travel market segment in the region.
Although a launch date for the new low cost airline wasn’t given, a statement said that further information regarding the new joint venture will be released “in the near future”.
No further information on what routes passengers can expect, or how frequently they’ll fly, has yet been given.
“We are thrilled to partner with Etihad to establish Air Arabia Abu Dhabi that will further serve the growing low-cost travel segment locally and regionally while capitalising on the expertise that Air Arabia and Etihad will be providing,” said Adel Al Ali, CEO of Air Arabia.

Took them 10 years to figure out AUH needed a low cost carrier... I guess better late than never...
I assume the fleet will consist of aircraft EY doesn't need because of the overcapacity in their fleet.
