Emirates to reduce flights on some U.S. routes

  • Emirates plane taxis to a gate at Dubai International Airport at Dubai International Airport in Dubai United Arab Emirates. The Middle East's biggest airline says it is reducing flights to the United

Emirates Airline will cut capacity to five USA cities from May, as demand weakens following travel-related restrictions rolled out by the U.S. government. The Gulf airlines deny the allegations.

Emirates is to more than halve its flights from Dubai to the United States, citing a drop in demand since Donald Trump became US President.

America's three largest airlines may welcome Emirates' move, since they had previously complained about competition from Middle East-based airlines including Emirates, which are all subsidized heavily by their respective governments, BI reported.

"Any reduction in capacity from them is only a good thing for United States airlines", said Joe DeNardi, an analyst at Stifel Financial Corp.

The official reason for the ban cited security concerns that such devices could be used to take over or otherwise harm a flight, but critics said it was a backhanded way of making flights on some airlines less desirable, which would help USA carriers. The awards highlight the world's top carriers based on the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for airlines worldwide gathered over a 12-month period. "Fellow peers are doing the same thing because we need to be able to work".

However between them the three ME airlines account for 235 sales out of a total of 306 for the design, which uses a new wing, with folding wing tips.

American declined to comment. United and Delta referred questions to the Partnership for Open & Fair Skies, which represents the carriers and several airline unions.

The route cuts are not the issue, but rather the claim that Emirates is a "profit-oriented enterprise".

The airline said a new rule requiring laptops and other personal electronics be in checked luggage, and attempts to ban travelers from six Muslim-majority countries, reduced demand.

Trump's latest decree stopped issuing new visas for citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, and frozen the United States refugee program.

The airline announced that it will be cutting down service to five of the 12 USA cities that it flies to. The ban only applies to specific airlines: Egyptair, Emirates Airline, Etihad Airways, Kuwait Airways, Qatar Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Royal Jordanian Airlines, Saudi Arabian Airlines, and Turkish Airlines.

Several big USA carriers and their pilot unions have bristled at the Gulf airlines' US push, accusing them of flooding the market with capacity while receiving billions of dollars of unfair government subsidies. "That traffic would have gone to Dubai and beyond". The total number of weekly flights cut comes to 25. Florida cities often attract more leisure travelers than lucrative business fliers.
