Do you think a thrice-weekly service from Manchester to Hong Kong via Delhi and Manchester to Bangkok via Mumbai, both using the Airbus A330-300 or an aircraft with similar capacity for both passengers and cargo, would be viable? PLEASE ASSUME PERMISSION WAS GRANTED BY BOTH THE UK AND INDIAN AUTHORITIES.

Wasnt BMI rumoured to be considering MAN-HKG using 332s, but they couldnt start it because twinjets arent allowed over the Himalaya's or something like that? Of course flying via India may change that thing though

Didn't Singapore Airlines once fly Singapore-Mumbai-Manchester not so long ago? Anyone know how they went?

They flew 744s on that routing, 1 or 2 x weekly. Apparently it did well, but now SQ fly MAN-SIN nonstop on 777s and also via ZRH with 744s.

Twinjets are allowed over the Himalayas, but many airlines have an issue with the passenger oxygen requirements on a certain route which some airlines who don't fly many other route also with this requirement aren't willing to pay for, and also there could be an issue with the maximum altitude in event of an engine failure with the hills there, but Air France fly the 777s to HKG.

It was a twice weekly 744. Flights were marginally profitable, but not wildly so - load factors were generally single-digit percentage points above breakeven load factor.
