How many weekly frequencies does SK have on their Beijing flight? AY has usually daily, but at the moment 6 weekly.
One of the best places in the world: McDonald's in T2 at FRA.

Quoting Virginia ( Thread starter): It has not been posted yet, just heard it, ay got the government contract from Denmark for all of their Beijing traffic above SAS.
So what's going on with SAS, see www.luchtvaartnieuws.nl sorry only in Dutch.
These contracts come and go, also SAS/Blue1 has got government contracts in Finland, not sure what the situation is now though. I guess the 'EU routes' to Brussels, Frankfurt etc, are the most important.
This kind of competition is great if it saves tax payers money.
Finnair has been busy expanding their business also in Europe lately, and not only in the Nordic area. They are opening several thinner routes, with new Embraers, to feed the flights from HEL to Asia.
