The only reason they are allowed to fly to the US is because they buy stuff from Boeing.
Same with Norwegian.
The lobbyist are busy..

I suspect they will be heavily weight restricted a good portion of the year with a max runway length of 9,000ft at FLL.

I am always amazed at how productive the Emiratis are, they are really setting the bar for the rest of the world!

It'll be interesting to see how their productivity launches into the future with oil at 50$ a barrel or so.

They are a productive bunch and if they sense you're not pulling your weight, in you go to the chief's office to explain why you have NOT been productive! Happened to me while I was there event though the EK doctor had grounded me for a bit. They didn't even care about that....

This FLL trip outta up the monthly hours to around 102 each per month now on the 777. Sad. Tiring. Fatiguing.
