According to Air Cosmos magazine, there has been a further twist to Emirates's upcoming mega order announcement at this weekend's Dubai Airshow. The article states that EK will sign a LOI (Letter of Intent) for 50 Airbus A 350s (mixture of -900s and -1000 models) plus lease 30 Airbus A 330-300s which shall be used as a "capacity bridging aircraft" until the A 350s are delivered. The A 333s are expected to replace in due course EK's oldest B 772As & A 343s.

In other EK related news, its Toronto bound flights had one of its most successful inaugural launches ever as the first 3 flights recorded a 93% overall load factor. On the first flight, 305 passengers flew inbound and 330 outbound.
