Weird Emirates Flight
So I was watching traffic at San francisco yesterday, and I noticed an Emirates 777-200LR (A6-EWF) flying into San Jose. This was odd as SJC doesn’t get Emirates flights, and SFO gets A380s, so it wasn’t a diversion. I checked up on Flight Aware today and saw it had flown in from London Stansted, and today is flying to DXB. I would think that it is a charter for some people from the Silicon Valley, but it doesn’t explain why it came from London, and Stansted at that. Any ideas?
Could be a charter for some rich Emiratis?

Thats what I thought, especially because San Jose is near the Silicon Valley, where all the big tech companies (Apple, ect) are based. But it doesn’t explain why it came from London Stansted
They stopped in London on the way for business or pleasure?
