Emirates is to deploy a Boeing 777-200LR on its Dubai-Lyon route from 1 February 2014.

The aircraft - configured with 266 seats, including 42 in business class - will replace the Airbus A340-500 on the French route, which Emirates opened in December 2012.

Since then, 56,000 passengers have used the five-times-weekly service, says Emirates, which also flies direct to two other French destinations: Paris and Nice.
