Loads On Each Leg Of Various 5th Freedom Flights

Sat Aug 23, 2003 12:53 pm

Sorry for the strange title, but I just couldn't figure out how to word it better. Anyway, I was wondering of various flights in the world that have fifth freedom rights, what are the loads on each leg? How many people board at the originating point and get off at the terminating point, how many get off at the intermediate destination, and how many get on at the intermediate destination? Here are just some flights I can think of, but feel free to add any that you can think of:

SQ SIN-TPE-LAX (and return; return also meant for following flights)
SQ SIN-NRT-LAX
SQ SIN-HKG-SFO
SQ SIN-ICN-SFO
SQ SIN-FRA-JFK
SQ SIN-AMS-EWR
Air India BOM-FRA-ORD
Air India BOM-LHR-ORD
Air India BOM-LHR-JFK
Air New Zealand AKL-LAX-LHR
Kuwait Airways KWI-AMS-ORD
Kuwait Airways KWI-LHR-JFK
MAS KUL-DXB-EWR
MAS KUL-JNB-CPT-EZE
KE LAX-NRT-ICN
SAA JNB-DKR-JFK (only once weekly)


The list of fifth freedom flights goes on, but those are just a bunch that I came up with. Any information that you can provide is appreciated. Thank you very much!

One of our best performing routes is HKG-BKK-BOM-DXB and the flight is pretty much full on all 3 sectors both ways all through the year on the 777-300. Our YVR-JFK-YVR flight does pretty well too.

Thank you very much! I didn't even know that route existed. Doesn't CX fly HKG-BKK-KHI too, or am I mistaken?
