They are considering to fly to both Hamilton and Toronto ? Does Hamilton have what it takes to support a flight by Uzbekistan? Yes I know that Hamilton is in Southern Ontario's industrial belt but hey WestJet serves Ontario as an alternative to Toronto because of lower landing fees.

I don't think you will see an UZBEK 767 at YHM any time soon...no bridges and no where near the facilities to handle a 767...but you other news makes my wonder if they are going to dump the Air Ukraine codeshare, and if so, could this mean that they are finaly getting their own 767's, or possibly one of the other Ukrainian carriers will take over the route...

There's a strong presence of air carriers from Central Asia and Middle East here in BHX (PK, EK, Turkmenistan). In fact, Uzbekistan used to fly into Birmingham for a while, but then they pulled out. It had been commented in the airport magazine that Uzbekistan Airlines would possibly start routes to JFK with BHX as their intermediate stop, but in the light of their pull-out, I thought the whole plan had fallen through. Interesting to see what happens next. We certainly need more flights to North America!
