Emirates Studying 2nd Daily DFW Flight?

Postby Greg on Mon Mar 05, 2012 3:46 pm

Reliable sources indicate that Emirates is studying a second flight to DFW from Dubai. Apparently the initial passenger loads have far exceeded what Emirates had expected and are nearly sold out through May.

On a side note, I did a quick search for some Emirates flights. April 9-16 saw the cheapest Economy fare as $1,836.70, Business at $9,009.70 and First at $15,023.70. Emirates operates Boeing 777-200LRs on the route with an 8F 42J 236Y seating configuration. IF they sold out a flight at these rates, they would be taking in $811,868.60 in fares alone, not counting whatever the freight brings in!

That's great news, but is this a single source or multiple sources? I wonder if and when we will here something. Emirates did mention that they plan to put the larger MTOW A380's on all US flights starting 2013, this could add fuel the the need for one at DFW

If you fellas have noticed all the work along the 18/36's, there are crews doing taxiway/apron additions and modifications to accommodate the A380.

And this is great news if there is a second Emirates flight added to the DFW market.

They're preparing for BA's "whale" plane next year or in 2014 ;)

The Emirates flight is over sold every day! They put pax on BA, KLM, and AA everyday. I could def see them going 2X daily or eventually bring the A380.

Hallmark of course is the company that does all the ticketing and what not for Emirates.
Hallmark aviation posted a new shift that they are now hiring for two shifts under the same job posting.
8:45-12:45pm and also now 5:45pm-10:30pm. Under the same job description, leading me to believe that it is the same flight....COULD IT BE, Emirates going to two a day???

Me personally, I'd MUCH rather see EK send 2 77L's or even a 77W than to see the whale coming in. Same goes for BA, its so great to see their 747 here every day!
