As previously mentioned in an email sent out 2 weeks ago concerning Emirates's 2009 expansion plans, I revealed that flights to Athens, Greece will be increased from daily to double daily. This has now been officially confirmed by EK as ATH will be served double daily nonstop from DXB using a B 773ER + A 332 each respectively effective March 1st 09. The new daily flight's schedule using an A 332 is as follows:
