But BA is doing so well as an airline, as someone posted the other day, they are running 3 daily flights to Dubai, from the UK.

Fab, but consider this

Ex Heathrow

EK/QF – 8 services

Royal Brunei – 1 service

Ex Gatwick

EK – 3 services

Ex Birmingham

EK – 3 services

Ex Manchester

EK – 3 services

Ex Newcastle

EK – 1 service

That’s 22 services daily from England to Dubai and BA, with it’s dominance at Heathrow has precisely 3 or 13.6% and bear in mind that a lot of those EK/QF flights are on A380 equipment.

BA are getting murdered ex UK to the Middle East and it’s because their offer is poor compared to the competition.

I flew down on QF10 on Saturday, in premium economy – the seat is virtually identical to BA’s new seat, the food was better, the drinks were better, the crew were lovely, the aircraft was spotless…….. I am thinking seriously about using this route in the future, just wish QF had a direct MAN service.
