Emirates Cuts Back US Flights

Emirates declared a "'significant deterioration' in its U.S. bookings since January," though it did not release specific numbers. As such, it will be decreasing its flights to the US.

The implication here is the Trump travel ban originating in January and the more recent electronic ban, which inexplicably included the UAE, despite British Intelligence determining the country not to be a threat, have negatively affected the airline. While Trump will see this as a victory for American business, the lack of competition from superior airlines shouldn't be seen as a good thing for travelers, especially as it won't force american-based airlines such as United to compete with a superior product. I'm saddened at the way we are losing some of our access to such a quality airline.
