Emirates ‘hugely disappointed’ application to offer daily Dubai-Mexico City service denied

    Emirates reportedly stated its application to launch daily DubaiBarcelonaMexico City service between 03-Nov-2018 and 30-Mar-2019 was denied by the Mexican authorities (Expansión/Aviacionaldia, 20-Sep-2018). The officials are reportedly only willing to authorise a three times weekly frequency. The carrier described the decision as “hugely disappointing”, especially as the authorities had previously “assured” the airline that its request for the slots would not be a “problem”.
