Hi Chris!

MU have totally discontinued the South Africa route
Before the Olympics they announced they would suspend the route for 1 month but
they now totally discontinued
They carried mostly IT fares and premium fares were very low

Cheers!
Tony

KE and Korean government is working on to launch JNB. Nonstop was not an option for them. First tried ICN-BKK-JNB with 772, 3 weekly, but somehow bilateral didn't allow this (don't know detail, sadly.) But recently got agreement on ICN-NBO-JNB instead. KE might start with this route or work more on via BKK. I might be wrong. Anyway KE will launch JNB next year, depends on economic situation.

Well if KE do fly via BKK they will be in direct competition with TG, i do believe that TG have pretty good loads out of JNB, and would not be keen on KE stealing some of there loads. Just my 2 cents. Yet still exciting to have KE on South african soil, what part of the year are they thinking of

Thanks
Chris

Completely no idea at all. KE's plan varies too much. I guess winter season will have more demand than summer, so it might be later 2009 or very early 2009.

Interesting - so that would mean that KE would join the small club of airlines to serve all six continents (in addition to BA, QF - after they relaunch EZE, EK, MH, SA).

ICN-NBO-JNB instead.

That seems like a neat option for KE. NBO has only limited service to Asia nonstop, and this would be a very different service from ICN to the heart of Africa. Plus opportunities for codesharing with Kenyan Airlines - skyteam and etc.

That seems indeed like a sweet route for Skyteam: ICN-NBO-JNB.



I want the European Union flag on airliners.net!
