I guess this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but the Associated Press is reporting that Emirates is greatly cutting back their frequencies to the US starting next month due to decreased travel demand as of next month. The Associated Press is reporting that:
— Dubai to Boston, Los Angeles, and Seattle, will be reduced from twice daily to once daily
— Dubai to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando will be reduced from daily to 5x weekly
As of now it doesn’t look like the actual route cuts have been updated in the schedule, but I imagine it will happen shortly.
This represents a net decrease of roughly 25 weekly flights between the UAE and US. However, do keep in mind that Emirates was already planning on decreasing frequencies on some routes prior to this announcement. For example, for the summer season they were already only going to operate once daily flights between Dubai and Los Angeles.
