It seems that demand is out there to fly Emirates, with the airline choosing to add extra flights to Amsterdam Schiphol.
The airline will add four extra frequencies a week from 1st December 2018, with a fifth extra flight being added from 1st January 2019.
This will boost the frequency of flights between Dubai and Amsterdam to 19 flights a week as EK145/EK146. The new route operates Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (with Sunday being the additional frequency).
The timings of the operation are variable – with RoutesOnline giving a good overview of the new operation
Emirates will use a Three Class Boeing 777-300ER, configured with Emirates Boeing 777-300ER in a three class cabin configuration, with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 310 Economy Seats.
EK147/EK148 and EK149/EK150 will continue to operate daily services with an Airbus A380 (which has more spacious seats than their Boeing 777-300ER in Economy Class at least).
The new flights should offer reasonable connections across the night-time bank of departures on the Emirates network, whilst arriving in Amsterdam in time for a full day of exploring or business.
Whilst not the full 3 flights a day service, it does offer more connections for Emirates passengers who need to go onto or travel through Dubai.
As well as cause a few more headaches for KLM.
