Emirates will add a second daily B777-300ER onto its Boston route in October. The Gulf airline launched its Dubai-Boston service in March 2014 (see news, September 2013), when it rostered a B777-200LR on the route. In August, capacity was increased by switching that aircraft to a B777-300ER that carries an additional 88 passengers in economy (see news, June 2014). Both planes have eight first class suites and 42 business seats. From October 1, a second B777-300ER will fly the route, reports airlineroute.net. From November 1, the following schedule will operate:
- EK237 will depart Dubai at 0840 and arrive at Boston Logan at 1400, with return service EK238 leaving Boston at 2225 and landing in Dubai at 1935 the next day
- EK239 will depart Dubai at 0250 and arrive at Boston Logan at 0810, while EK240 will leave Boston at 1105 and land in Dubai at 0815 the next day.
