Οι ενστάσεις στις ΗΠΑ για το αυριανό δρομολόγιο της EK αυξάνονται, ωστόσο είναι πολύ δύσκολο να γίνει κάτι από την στιγμή που θα ξεκινήσουν οι πτήσεις. Ο,τι γίνει θα γίνει σε λίγο καιρό όταν (και αν) οι Αμερικάνικες αεροπορικές επαναπροσδιορίσουν την παρουσία τους/δρομολόγια τους στην Ελλάδα:http://www.businessinsider.com/united-a ... ens-2017-3
"United Airlines announced Wednesday that its employees, along with several members of Congress, would stage a protest on Sunday at Newark Liberty International Airport. The protest, which United and its unions expect to draw between 150 and 200 people, is in reaction to the inaugural flight of Emirates' new daily service between Newark, New Jersey, and Athens, Greece.
As for Emirates' move into United's New York-area hub, United CEO Oscar Munoz told Business Insider in a recent interview that United believes Emirates would lose an estimated $25 million a year on the Newark-to-Athens route, based on United's experience operating seasonal service to the Greek capital. United declined to elaborate on how it generated that figure.
"At the end of the day, the economics of it is that, if it indeed continues, it's going to affect the jobs in this country because I'm not going to fly from Newark to Athens, Greece, every day," Munoz said. "I fly there seasonally now, because that's where the demand is. If they are going to fly every day, they are going to lose $25 million on that route every year. If they are going to continue to do that, then I have no business in making that route."
