Emirates to use 3 times a daily A380s flights to LHR


Emirates airline will deploy another A380 sercice route from DXB-LHR-DXB

The flight will operate on EK30 & EK29 starting from today, however this will be only for until 15th January 2011 when it stops.

Any body know why they have added another A380 service to LHR?

Why is it only for two weeks they operating the A380?


Lots of winter vacationers to Dubai?


More likely Indians and Pakistanis residing in the UK visiting their homes over the holidays.


Do you reckon Emirates will send there A380 to Pakistan?

Will they able to handle the A380?


Don’t know, but I doubt it.


IIRC long term EK is planning on adding a higher density A388 config (600+ seats) for serving India and possibly Pakistan.


Could be, I haven’t heard of any airports there that are 380 capable but that doesn’t mean much!!
We were just in Dubai for a few hours today and it seems like 25% of the flights talking to Clearance Delivery were going to one or the other.
