Emirates is increasing capacity on its new Dubai to Boston route.
The Gulf carrier launched its Boston service in March (see news, September 2013) and currently deploys a B777-200LR on the route.
From August 1, this will switch to a larger B777-300ER aircraft that can carry an additional 88 passengers in economy. Both aircraft have eight first class suites and 42 business seats. To view a seatplan of the B777-300ER, click here.
Flight EK237 departs Dubai at 0850 and arrives in Boston at 1445 local time. Return service EK238 takes-off from Boston at 2315 and lands in Dubai at 1930 the next day.
Emirates senior vice president Hubert Frach said: “Emirates has seen steady growth on our Boston route since its launch only three months ago. This means that in response we are able to introduce the larger Emirates Boeing 777-300ER to New England.”
