I don't think SJC will be getting any Asian routes. The dot-com bubble burst and took SJC-TPE with it, even SJC-NRT died. If any Asian routs were to go to SJC, I'd honestly think TPE, PVG, and BOM are the most likely, for SFO already handles those destinations just fine IMO.

Quoting Whosee (Reply 4): Also if SJC were to get a European flight who would be the most likely candidate to fly it?
There was talk of Aer Lingus a couple of years ago, but I knew that wasn't going to happen. From Europe, I really don't see anybody landing at SJC, heck San Diego can't even land European service. I think an airline from the UK flies into SAN like once a week or something like.

Quoting Juventus (Reply 6): Its a shame, the city seems to be spending a lot of $$$ to upgrade the airport, and they don't even have direct to Canada. Maybe sometime AC could start RJ services to Vancouver or Toronto.
With a *A hub right up the street from SJC, I really don't see AC offering flights to SJC.

If the Bay Area economy would improve, Westjet or AC could check SJC, maybe from YVR.
As for Asian airlines, with SFO next door, it's is highly unlikely, unless there's an airline which doesn't serve SFO (but maybe already LAX), wants to serve SFO and can grant some cargo or seats on each flight from SJC area or Asian companies.
Other than the Canadians, when it comes to international, SJC is better trying to woo airlines from México plus TA or even CM to try that airport.

Zoom UK flew 2x weekly SAN-LGW on its big blue 767-300 aircraft, and was even planning to upgrade it to 3x weekly over the next few months, but unfortunately, they went down in August. Yet another chapter in SAN's international carrier history closed much too quickly...
