Emirates airline has said it will likely order more planes to keep pace with Dubai's fast-moving development plans.
"The airline is going through a major re-planning process. We've not been ambitious enough ... to best serve the development plans of Dubai," group managing director Maurice Flanagan said.
"We shall probably need more aircraft than that," Flanagan said in reference to the airline's record-breaking $15 billion order last November for 22 giant Airbus A380s and a clutch of other Airbus and Boeing planes.
Flanagan said Emirates will look at purchasing more long-range aircraft, but would not give any further details, saying the re-planning process will continue until September.
Plans are also afoot to expand the airline's current network of 57 destinations in 40 countries, he said.
