When Emirates Airlines announced that it would be connecting Abuja, Its second destination in Nigeria, not a few passengers expressed happiness that the move would save the stress of having to fly from Lagos which had been one of the airline’s 24 destinations in Africa since 2004.
Since the maiden Abuja flight, EK 785 on August 1 however, passengers have started expressing their disappointment about the airline’s operation. Some who have flown with the airline to other destinations disclosed to Street Journal that the aircraft being used on the Dubai – Abuja route are the old A 340-300 Airbus models.
One of the passengers pointed out that flying Business Class, “one would have expected to get treated to the normal Emirates Suites. It was however surprising that all one got was the lie flat seat models which are far older than what obtains in modern aircraft. I thought I paid for comfort”.
The passenger also pointed out that the audio system of the aircraft too cannot be compared with the ones in more recent aircraft.
One other passenger also complained of the seat fabric. “The plane is just old. But who told them Africans don’t deserve the best? They use Boeing 777 in other countries for God’s sake”, he concluded.
Street Journal’s findings have revealed that Emirates’ Dubai-Abuja route is served by an Airbus A340-300 which offers 267 seats in a three-class configuration – 12 First Class, 42 Business Class and 213 Economy Class seats.
Incidentally, the airline has more recent Airbus models, the A380 which convey passengers to 29 destinations including “popular” ones like Beijing, Hong Kong, Mumbai, New York, Jeddah and London.
The airline introduced the A340-300 into its operations back in 2013 after buying some from Singapore Airlines. Though the airline has disclosed that it plans to phase A340 out in 2014, they are still in use as far as the Abuja route and some other destinations in Africa are concerned.
Some regular flyers have also raised questions bordering on the airlines decision to use its oldest aircraft in Africa. Passengers in South Africa raised similar questions back in 2013.

@AF1:

 

eles começaram a fazer a mesma rota no final do mes passado:

 

 

 

Arik Air expanded its long-haul network with the addition of two new routes to the most populous city in UAE during the course of last week, both of which are operated five times weekly using its 251-seat A330-200s. On 28 July at 22:15, the Nigerian carrier launched operations from Lagos (LOS) to Dubai (DXB), a route which is operated via Abuja (ABV). Furthermore, on 29 July at 01:00, the airline commenced operations on the 5,390-kilometre sector from Abuja (ABV), a route which is already flown by Emirates (daily). Nevertheless, the 5,900-kilometre airport pair from Lagos (LOS) will face competition from Emirates’ twice-daily flights. Commenting on the addition of Dubai to its network, Michael Arumemi-Ikhide, CEO, Arik Air, said: “This is another exciting moment for us all at Arik Air, not only launching a new international destination, but becoming the first airline to link the capital Abuja to Dubai. The importance of Dubai as the Middle East’s commercial capital makes it imperative for Arik Air to connect the city with Lagos which is a Nigeria’s commercial capital.”

Não muito diferente daqui quando reclamam do tipo e tamanho do avião, que a empresa X não voa para Y, mas abriu voo para Z... e por aí vai...

É óbvio que nos aviões novos tudo é melhor! Até parece que em nenhum lugar do mundo existam companhias que não operem com aviões de até 20 anos de idade ou mais. Eles querem é comer caviar em um A380.

Ridículo......a rota é nova, tem que se estabelecer primeiro.......

 

E na executiva não existe "Suítes"....

 

A grande maioria das rotas para a África, a EK usa o 77W como Lagos, Durban, Casablanca, Abidja, Accra, Capetown ou Johannesburg....
