Emirates A380 to go back to NY in October

May 20 - Emirates Airline’s A380 superjumbo will return to New York on October 31, the airline announced on Wednesday. The decision was made after huge revenues were reported for the Americas in 2009-10, representing a year-on-year rise of 8.1 percent.
Given the growth in the Americas, the airline got a profit of AED3.5 billion (US$ 964 million), while 27.5 million passengers flew with Emirates over the last financial year, over 20 percent more than in 2008- 09. "We promised to return the A380 to New York as soon as demand recovered and we have been true to our word," said Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline. "Against some of the toughest operating conditions ever faced, the results for the Americas have been hugely encouraging. This achievement reflects our success in maintaining our business as usual approach and remaining faithful to our strategy of product and service excellence," he added.
