Which U.S. Carriers Have Rights To Southeast Asia?

Sat Mar 23, 2002 6:38 am

I know Pan Am flew into Karachi up until the middle to late 1980's, but after they went out of business which airline took over the rights into Pakistan??

Also does any US based airline have rights to Bangladesh?

I know a bunch of them operate into and out of India, but i'd appreciate a list of them anyway.

Thanks in advance

India/Bangadesh/Pakistan are not considered Southeast Asia.

UA, NW, DL operate or at some point operated out of India. AFAIK, they still have the rights.

I should have used the term "Indian Sub-Continent".

Thanks

Northwest has rights to India, and utilizes them with daily 747-400 service from Amsterdam to Mumbai (Bombay). These flights used to alternate with NW and KL flying to Bombay and Delhi on alternating days, but now KL flies the AMS-DEL flights exclusively, and NW takes the AMS-BOM run.

UA inherited the Pan Am routes and NW has I think republics routes or whatever airline the got them from. Thats why CO, DL and AA hardly have a presence in Asia (CO the most of the three). From what I understand, its very hard to get routes in most of Asia for US carriers that didn't inherit or buy them a long time ago like NW and UA.
