EEEkkk.....

I think they don't stand a chance competing with CX and TG on the TPE-ICN route....

Unless they release heavily discounted fares... and I mean heavily......

Yes, it will... and I mean heavily...

By the way, will Lion Air depart from Denpasar? I've heard there will be a route between Seoul/Taipei and one of Sumatra cities.
