What are some routes that are currently restricted due to political or embargo reasons that would be very popular if allowed as daily non-stops?

Here are three to get started:

-- Taipei-mainland China. (This could happen in the near future as negotiations are planned)
-- Miami-Havana, New York-Havana, etc.
-- Seoul-North Korea

Any others?

What about flights from "restricted" airports-like DCA or LGA nonstop to the West Coast?

Don't both of those airports have restrictions limiting them to flights within a 1500 mile radius or something?

What is the reasoning behind that?

If one could fly say nonstop between SJC and LGA, I'm sure that would be an instant hit.

well, international services from india is very restricted. there are many airlines which loved to serve much more frequently, such as LH, EK, and certainly most of the other european carriers...
LH once claimed they could use an A380 already today on flights to DEL and that they´d love to go twice daily to DEL with 744s, but they can´t since the number of frequencies is heavily restricted.

India has destroyed a lot of economic potential in order to protect AI. Cheaper flights would promote growth all over the country. Interestingly though, I think India has Open-Skies for cargo.

Boeing757/767,

Along the same lines with what you had posted, Chicago - Havana (United) and Dallas/FT - Havana (American) would be pretty popular as well.



Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

JFK-ZAG would be good. There is a huge croatian population here in New York and northern New Jersey.

Alaska Airlines operates SEA - DCA - SEA, and it is very popular.

Kathmandu-Lhasa. The most spectacular geography in the world; from the Kathmandu Valley, over the Himalayas, then above the Tibetan Plateau moonscape into Lhasa.

Some people might appreciate being able to go to Edmonton Municipal to catch short-haul flights. The airport used to receive commercial service, but is now limited to small aircraft.

Jersey to Heathrow is my number one! We lost it in 2000 and unfortunately more domestic routes are likely to get the axe.

Dublin to the US/Canada, currently restricted by a crazy Irish govt regulation to protect SNN (which it doesn't do and only succeeds in undermining Dublin).

Taiwan-China MUST be the number one: whoever gets the TPE-SHA/PVG route is going to make a killing. I wonder how they'll work this; start with major routes such as this, but share them out, so that whoever gets SHA won't get PEK (or might get it from KHH). The potential there must be immense.

There use to be nonstop flights before the break up of former Yugoslavia. JAT Yugoslav Airlines and Pan Am both flew JFK-ZAG. Ever since then, no other airline has even bothered with this route. This route could be very profitable especially in the summer time. I don't think its restricted, but I don't know why US airlines don't want to fly there.

Yeah, but how many Croatian immigrants would be willing to fork over F, J, and Y fares?

It would be popular for the summer time especially from May-September. Alot of people go there for the Adriatic coast.

I was talking about Tijuana-San Diego, that route wouldnt be good because people dont have to fly, they just walk to San Diego. DIG?
