Any aviation nerds able to tell us why emirates don’t use an A380 on their DBX to RUH Mon morning/ Thurs evening flights?

This is either wrong information or a recent change linked to one terminal being refurbished . RUH was A380 fitted before covid and EK regularly sent the A380 on Wednesday evening flights


RUH isn’t fitted for A380s

That's not it, Emirates flew at least 2 A380s a day to RUH pre-covid. That being said, my suspicion is that demand hasn't returned to pre-covid levels to justify A380s

Security reasons

DXB - RUH is apparently one of the busiest international routes so operating A380 makes total sense. My only guess is that the Riyadh airport may not be optimally fitted for such double deckers but then EK flies A380 to Jeddah regularly with a much worse airport, so this theory may not hold true.

Long answer to say “I don’t know!” 😂

Been isolating alone for quite a while now... parents want to come visit and they both have work they go to and aren't the biggest stay at home and mask followers. Feeling like I'm being put in a tough situation to refuse seeing my own parents at this time, am I being unreasonable?

Anyone in sustainability and climate change consulting able to walk through a standard project they go through - is it interesting work or is it primarily creating reports for companies to leverage for year end disclosures. I’m sure if you get further into the weeds if their supply chain by evaluating suppliers, product materials sourced, fleet management it could be interesting but are companies going to this depth yet.

26M been dating my girlfriend for the past 7 years. She’s basically the only person I’ve had a romantic relationship with. We just moved in together and I’m not really liking it - I feel like I’m “domesticated” and have less freedom. I’m not looking forward to the future. Instead, I’m looking back wondering “what if” around other girls, relationships, experiences, etc.

I don’t know what this means but i wanted to talk about it.
