As Lauda have been famous for flights to countries where you can pick up girls and young boys you have to wonder why they are go to Mayanmar.......

Hkgspotter,

interesting observation regarding Lauda. Never thought about that though... Hmm... Hongkong? Young girls and boys over there for easy pickup? NG does fly to Hongkong, doesn't it?

Daryl : What a careless remark .. . not to mention irresponsible! I have previously worked in Myanmar and lived there for more than 2 years, and never knew that it is a place to pick young girls and boys. How often have you gone there on such acquisition trips to say it with such conviction and authority!

I also wish to correctly spell some of the names mentined: Lauda Air flies to Yangon (not Rangon . . . it was re-named Rangoon during colonial times) and the country is Myanmar (not Mayanmar . . . the British re-named it Burma).

Myanmar has been (for quite a while already) enjoying good number of European tourists (Germans, French, Italians, Austrians and Swiss) . . . and during my stint with Air Mandalay, we've had worked with tour operators handling these visitors and conveying them around the country to destinations such as Heho (in the Shan Mountains where the famed leg-rowing Intha fishermen fish in the Inle Lake), Mandalay (the last royal capital of Myanmar) and Bagan (the dusty 42 sq miles of desert-like landscape dotted with thousands of pagodas and temples) . . . not places where you will find young boys and girls to be acquired and abused!

Daryl: Please have a little more respect for the people you refer to in your remarks, and also for the intelligence of the members of this forum.

Yeah. NG is the first airline from Europe wich does fly to Myanmar.
So not stupid... Many europeans, wich went there are flying over Vienna and with Lauda Air. Good strategy.

Lets see how the load factor of the flights will be.

No, the first European airlines who started to fly to Myanmar is LaudaAir Italia (L4) at the end of July 02.
This is a charter flight MXP-RGN-HKT-MXP operated with B767/300ER.
Even if is still a "Lauda" airlines who started to fly to RGN, Lauda Italia hasn't more any relationship with the Austrian Lauda A/G, since the Italian Lauda is owned 60% by Niki Lauda and 40% by the second largest Italian tour operator.

Hkgspotter1 Ironically "Lauda" in the Urdu language here in Pakistan is a vernacular term for Penis, just like C*** and D***. No offence Mr.Nikki Lauda Smile
