Emirates Cuts Capacity To Florida… Again

This is a rather curious move. Last April Emirates announced that they’d drastically cut capacity to the US. They claimed that this was due to a combination of increased immigration measures in the US, as well as the electronics ban that was in place for a while on US-bound flights. At the time, the airline announced the following capacity changes:

— Dubai to Boston, Los Angeles, and Seattle, were reduced from twice daily to once daily
— Dubai to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando were reduced from daily to 5x weekly

Since then, Emirates’ president has been quoted as saying that demand has picked up again and normalized. In January it was announced that daily flights would be restored to both Florida cities as of March 25, 2018. However, their routes to Boston, Los Angeles, and Seattle, continue to be operated once daily rather than twice daily.
