I just realized that LY has a SIN-BKK in extension to its flights back to Switzerland. I also know that UA has something like LAX-NRT-HKG. Do any other Airlines operate routes similar to this?

LY = El AL. I think you meant LX.

BKK-SIN has lots....
(SK, AY, TK, LX)

UA and NW also have large intra-Asian service.

NZ flies NRT-KIX, though no local traffic is allowed.

Oh theres a lot. off the top of my head i can think of a few:

Turkish, SAS, and a few others (can't think off the top of my head) do SIN-BKK routes (theres quite a few that fly this). UA does SIN-HKG (off and on from what i remember, think its back up again), and UA and NW have a TON of flights out of NRT to other asian destinations.

LH does a Jakarta-Singapore flight and also goes to Manila (from Bangkok I think).

AF used to do BKK-Saigon, and Hanoi flights but I believe they have gone to non-stops on a thrice weekly service from CDG.

Gulf Air, flies SIN-SYD

Kuwait Airways (and im not too sure about this) has one in southeast asia (maybe Jakarta-KUL or Jakarta-SIN) as well.

There's a bunch, its a very odd market

Thanks for all the feedback so far.

I just did a false booking on the SK website SIN-BKK (To get a price idea) and it said "no seats available" for my set-up dates.

I agree - it is quite amazing the number of Non asian airlines that fly intra asia...

My list...

LX BKK-SIN
LH SIN-CGK
LH BKK-AB) (MNL / RPLL), Philippines">MNL
LH BKK-SGN
LH BKK-KUL
EK BKK-HKG
SK BKK-SIN
AY BKK-SIN
ET BKK-HKG
KQ BKK-HKG

Here in BKK, LX, SK & AY fight it out to sell the BKK-SIN seats off the cheapest. On a good day, you can book a return BKK-SIN trip for around 4,500 baht (US$112) earn miles, and still get a meal!!

SQ452,
Kuwait & the Gulf are still in Asia, and Turkey is mostly in Asia too.


KLM serves Kuala Lumpur - Manila v.v.

KLM and Air France serve Singapore - Jakarta v.v.
(with KLM takeover, I think AF will drop Jakarta soon)

Finnair and SAS serve Bangkok - Singapore v.v.

United operates HKG and NRT as our Asian Hubs. We have flight attendant bases at both. Check out United's website for system maps of all our Asian Destinations.

I don't think QF has any intra-asia routes, not anymore anyway. If I recall correctly, they used to operate SIN-BKK, SIN-HKG & BKK-HKG many years ago. AO however has flights between Singapore-Kota Kinabalu and Singapore-Denpasar.

Don't forget that SAS have been scaling down on the flights to BKK - I think they're now down to 3 or 4 flights pr week.

KL does Taipei-Bangkok. Swiss used to fly the same route.
UA TPE-NRT. NW TPE-NRT, TPE-KIX, etc.
but UA and NW probably have the most intra Asia flight by a Western carrier.

There are quite a lot of non-asian airlines flying HKG-BKK sectors:
KQ, GF, EK, AY, ET, UL

They are airlines I could think off at the moment, could be more  Smile

LX:
DXB-KHI vv.
DXB-MCT vv.
BKK-SIN vv.
JED-RUH vv. (no traffic rights)

Some of Swissair:
BOM-HKG vv.
HKG-AB) (MNL / RPLL), Philippines">MNL (also by LX)
BKK-TPE
PEK-SHA
PEK-SEL (if not mistaken)
BKK-SGN

it looks like we have once again an issue of Asia, Middle East etc.

From the geographic point of view, Middle East, Far East, South East Asia, South Asia, Central Asia etc. are ALL in Asia as a continent.
