The economist has an excellent in-depth article on the three major Gulf airlines.Some highlights:

– Dubai’s T3 “will soon be the largest building in the world by floor space”

–  Dubai is current the the 3rd busiest airport in the world (23.s million passengers per year). Hong Kong International is second and Heathrow is first.

– Dubai is building a wholly new airport (who knew?). It’s costing $50 billion and will open in the early 2020s and be  “by far the biggest in the world”.

– Gulf Air used to be an airline for all the Trucial States and Qatar.
