Why do Emirates bother to advertise that you can fly on the new Airbus 380 to New York when....

it is via Dubai, costs £5,500 per person in economy and only one of the legs (outbound, Dubai to JFK) is on the Airbus and the rest on other planes?!

They spent half the Arsenal V FC Twente game the other night flashing "FLY TO NY WITH ON THE NEW A380 WITH EMIRATES" on the pitchside hoarding advertising.

no thanks!!

because they are trying desperately to recoup the money spent on a football team who are already looking dodgy at the start of the season?

This at a 4-0 drubbing btw

I guess because if they advertised it with your opening comment then they'd probably get less interest!

maybe they think gooners are poncy and will only want to go to NY and not Dubai for their shopping?

I can see CD's ad campaign now!

"Fly Emirates! We're expensive and don't even go where you want! Fly Emirates now!"
