  1. Expect Emirates on certain routes (ie) London-Dubai to fly the A380 for at least the next 20 years.
  2. In my recent booking with Qatar Airways i avoided the Dreamliner and have a combination of A350/A340/A380 aircraft on the route MAN/DOH/BKK.
  3. To keep on topic and to keep comparing apples with apples 95% of all airlines operating the Dreamliner have a seat width of 17'' in economy and that also includes TUI !
  4. So which airline operates the dreamliner on the UK/Thailand route direct with a seat pitch of 33inch and width greater than 17'' in economy ?
  5. Well if somebody offered me a free holiday in Thailand with TUI (ex Thomson) i would think about it for one second and then say YESssssssss! Long haul with a TUI Dreamliner 787 in economy is actually better than a 5 star airline like Qatar who also operate the Dreamliner !
  6. See Helios Crash with B737-300 www.quora.com/What-happened-to-Helios-Flight-522-the-ghost-plane
  7. I would be very careful booking with Jet Airways. It's all over the net about their financial troubles - Google is your friend !
  8. And tenders have been sent to baggage handlers / cargo agents / cleaners etc - So hopefully expect news of a commencement for a direct service starting 2019.
  9. Going East ex Manchester you also have :- Turkish Airlines Jet Airways Ethiopian Airlines Oman Air Should be interesting to see what happens over the next 12/24 months especially if Thai Airways start a direct service to BKK.
  10. From RoutesOnline :- Doha-Manchester eff 22nd May19 increase from 18 to 21 weekly, 787-8 operating. Lets wait and see what aircraft Qatar eventually decide to use on this route.
  11. From 1st Dec 18 Emirates will introduce 2 class A380 (615 passengers) on flights EK021/022 daily to Dubai. This replaces 3 class A380.
  12. As from 22nd May 2019 the three daily flights to be 787-8 ??
  13. Talks have commenced in Dubai for the takeover of Etihad prior to the opening of DWC Airport Dubai. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-09-20/emirates-said-to-be-exploring-etihad-deal-to-forge-no-1-airline?srnd=premium-europe
  14. On average Emirates have the following on all of the three daily flights in Economy with 'status' :- Gold 5 Silver 35 Unless of course your economy ticket was a Flex Plus ticket ?
  15. I presume your flight was from Manchester ? and as you had status with Emirates ie (gold) you were upgraded ? What status did you have ? Manchester has one of the largest number of status members on the whole Emirates network ?
