The airline already operates two daily non-stop flights using the Airbus A380 super-jumbos and one flight via Milan Malpensa using a Boeing 777-300ER.

The flight will be operated by another A380 in a three class configuration 14 first class suites, 76 lie-flat business class on the upper deck, and 399 economy class seats on the lower deck.

EK 208 departs New York JFK at 16:30 arrives in Dubai at 13:15 the following day.

  1. Does the A380 sit on the Tarmac at JFK from 20:35 to 16:35? It sounds rather long. Or does the same aircraft to the 23:00 return flight?

    • You are correct in your assumption. I am quite sure EK will plan a staggered usage of the aircraft. Each aircraft will perform a different flight number on the return. There is no way I see EK keeping an aircraft on the ground at JFK for 20 hours.

      • Interesting…currently EK201 arrives at 13:50 and flies back at 23:00 as EK202.

        So this new EK208 return flight at 16:00 would be done by the EK201 inbound aircraft while the EK202 at 23:00 would be performed by the EK207 incoming aircraft.
