Emirates Syd--Bkk to stop flying

Recommended Posts

Just been notified that Emirates will be stopping the Sydney to Bangkok-Sydney service leg from June 1st 🤬--any-one booked later will be transfered to Qantas 🤬-- Bugger !! will one less player leave the door open for Thai and Qantas to cash in 😱

Fly Scoot for half the price

 

Emirates was direct and had some great deals

That's a bummer. I work in Dubai and live in Thailand. I like that flight time.

After reading about their "outstanding" service I quickly dismissed the idea to use their Singapore - Berlin nonstop.

They are worse than other low cost carriers.

No idea why Singapore airlines went down to that level with their LCC offspring.

Do Etihad do it?

No.

Only see Qantas, Thai Airways and Scoot remaining if Emirates gives up.

You should also mention that this is not a non-stop but going through Singapore.

And to/from Singapore there is BA, Singapore Airlines and Qantas.

 

As an addition: JetStar does three flights weekly Sydney - Phuket non-stop.

That sucks! I always use Emirates from Sydney to BKK. They always used the A380's for this flight, and always had the best direct prices too!

You might want to check - the first link relates to service reductions for the duration of the runway upgrade project rather than permanent changes.

Well considering the EK flight schedule in and out of Sydney is actually only one flight a day anyway from BKK this would/will ultimately mean the only alternative option for Australian travellers is of course Qantas,Thai,Jetstar,AirAsia and Scoot(both via KL and Singapore).Interesting decision given the Christchurch flight goes through Sydney out of Bangkok (7.30pm).Would like to get more information on this and see if this is maybe the end of their code sharing 'cosy' alliance agreement given Qantas really don't want to use Dubai anymore as their preferred stopover transit destination!
