Watching NON STOP Sydney to O'Hare Emirates 4847


#1

While browsing I came across this flight. It must be the longest flight ? I’m not sure how long the scheduled . flights from Newark to Singapore were. Being Emirates 4847 with that number its a freight flight? Maybe they’re testing an alternative way to expansion. Now that they’ve connected with Qantas to London. I wish there was a public way to find out what’s on this flight and why non stop ? I am aware that Emirates freight serves O’Hare , but not they’re passenger flights. I’m also aware that Qantas , through Polar/Atlas has a scheduled freighter flight that leaves Sydney to China then Anchorage , O’Hare and ends at Kennedy.

Must be a special freighter flight as it does not show up on the cargo schedule,

SIN-EWR 9534 mi, 8285 nm
SYD-ORD 9232 mi, 8022 nm

They would not be allowed to carry passengers between Sydney and Chicago, so it’s not a test of anything.


#5

My guess is that it is a positioning flight or possibly a charter.


#6

Why not?

They have freighter flights in the 48XX series.


#7

Yes and no. They have a few freighter flights in the 48xx series. However, these are operated by TNT (between DXB and LGG/JFK). Emirates operated freighter flights are in the 9xxx series.


#8

OK I see that now.

But on ACARS it does show that an Emirates 777F did operate this flight, A6-EFJ.

It may have been a freight charter then. This particular aircraft has gone to a lot of places that Emirites doesn’t fly to.


#10

Why not?

The US-Australia bilateral only allows US, New Zealand, or Australian airlines to carry passengers between the two countries.


#11

Cool, didn’t know that.

You can find Australian air bilateral agreements at infrastructure.gov.au/aviati … ments.aspx

this is a little post my post. While looking at freight traffic. I realized for this flight to have been non stop Syd to O’Hare this flight must of been a light load. No Anchorage on this flight.
