As Emirates reportedly decided to switch up its Boeing orders to put more emphasis on the smaller Boeing 787, rather than the larger yet-to-certified 777X, could it also mark a future where less emphasis is marked on its Dubai hub?
Whenever someone mentions Emirates airlines, the sight of luxury, behemoth aircraft and the ever-growing Dubai International Airport (DXB) hub appears on the horizon. Ever since it was established in 1985, it bullied and muscled its way into the spotlight of airline brands and became a powerhouse in aviation.
