Doug is correct......the only country on earth where people talk about an Expo still 5 years away......is Dubai. After moving back to the UK having spent 10 years in Dubai the Expo is clearly an overrated reason why Dubai's economy should expand.
Expo 2020 will be to blame for the mis-allocation of capital that would have been better placed in other sectors and markets.
To the outside world Dubai excels at selling hype and Expo 2020 is just the next big "pitch".

Queen has revealed the truth, education from the womb, starting with mother's love, affection and also love from all the people around the human child, positive thinking that we are all one and we can live together anywhere in this huge world. Allah will love all of us when we join our hands in each others love/affection.Leave the negative side of destruction, build a good life and see the joy in yourself.Think of all the great emperors, world wars, they could not create a single entity.Even lion cannot eat all the animals and say only our species should live.At the precious moment of destruction(building/human) just think it could have been yourself in your previous birth or destroying a person is your own self, like a mirror image.With an open heart discuss how to attain happiness.Allah has given this life and world for happiness of everyone.Please all the religious leaders in the world give these loving words to all and let us find happiness in this world.

I love this news, however, what many passengers want is for Emirates to carry on to the US with a stopover in Frankfort. With increased A380 flights to the UK, it would be nice to do a stopover in the UK then be able to fly Emirates A380 to the US and Canada. Then Emirates conquers the air traffic and many of us don't like these long-haul flights. Please petition this Emirates!
