|| The Magic of Middle Eastern Airlines

Aviation Week, a McGraw-Hill publication, has an interesting article about Middle East airlines:

"Emirates has been the role model of a new breed of carriers taking advantage of two factors: geography and technology. From hubs in Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Doha, they can now reach any point on Earth nonstop and connect any two city pairs with only one stop in the Middle East. Recent enhancements in aircraft technology have made this possible, with the introduction of ultra-long-haul airplanes such as the Airbus A340-500 and Boeing 777-200LR."

Emirates is currently the eighth largest carrier of international traffic. Last year, the airline's profit rose 23% to $942 million on $8.5 billion in revenues.
