It might be a silly question but does anybody know why BA and VS does not fly to Seoul/Incheon ?
In my opinion South Korea is a growing market since years and the economy will probably increase in the near future so this should be also an opportunity to these 2 airlines to add Seoul/Incheon to their destinantions.

BA used to fly to Seoul Kimpo, but closed down the station during the Asian financial crisis. BA has closed down lots of destinations in the Asia over the past decade, including Osaka, Nagoya, Seoul, Manila, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Brisbane, Perth and Colombo.

I'm pretty sure BA last flew to Seoul during the SARS crisis - IIRC they diverted their usual LHR-PEK flights LHR-ICN-PEK instead for a good few months. I think I was on one of the last direct flights to Beijing just before this started.
