I am curious as to what route launches have been some of the most successful in the airlines history.
I know EK's new service to DUB has been one of the most successful in the last few years, it started in January 2012, and after just 2-3 weeks service announced it was going to upgrade aircraft type to cope with demand.
Also BA began flying to LAS from LHR and was upgraded from 777 to 744, and now they have announced new flights from LGW-LAS.
What other routes have been successful route launches for airlines?
Then, in January 2009, Emirates announced that Seoul would be the airline's sixth A380 destination after New York, London, Sydney, Auckland and Toronto, starting in December of that year. Seoul was the first destination in Northeast Asia to be served by Emirates' A380. All of this happened within 5 years of the airline establishing operations there.
