what will happen is that all of the rights of GFs allocated NONSTOP flights only from AUH to the Indian Subcontinent will be taken over by ETIHAD.

Pretty smart move on the AUH Govt's part if u ask me :wink:

That's the whole point of GF moving out of AUH! The government of Abu Dhabi are now concentrating on EY as this will be the National Airline of UAE. The same thing happened when EK arrived in '85/86, GF moved out and EK took over their routes. Why do you think they (EY) are expanding to all these destinations very soon? It's not a smart move as you say, but it's an inevitable move!

Looks like GF will continue to fly to ISB and LHE.

The frequency will change from 6 weekly AUH-ISB to 5 weekly and 3 weekly AUH-LHE to 2 weekly.

When is EY going to get more planes?
