Emirates is in the process of rebalancing its services to Perth in the west of Australia, with the airline dropping one of three daily services between Dubai and Perth.
Flight pair EK422/423 is currently operated daily with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, and will be dropped after the 6th July 2015.
This will leave EK420/421 (an Airbus A380 operation due to commence on the 1st May 2015) and EK424/425, which will be scaled up from the current Boeing 777-200LR to a Boeing 777-300ER.
The capacity trim will drop 216 seats a day – however, there should be 847 seats a day between Dubai and Perth still.
Capacity trims are fact of aviation life – sometimes, demand may be slightly weaker than expect – and airlines redeploy equipment. With an A380 coming on stream and a 777-300ER being swapped over from a 777-200R, there is still a fair amount seats between the two cities each day – just slightly less choice in which service to board.
