This could also be a possible option for VS
blocking Changi (to protect their market), and VS
's tie in with Malaysia at KUL
, and with 5th freedom rights still trying to be negotiated with Hong Kong, maybe a direct route via Perth would fit in as the answer for their route to Oz?
A345's would also compliment the A346 fleet quite nicely.
Only problem I could foresee is VS
not adopting a config like that of SQ
- preferring a higher density outfit in Y class - a la BA
Because of this I'm sure VS
would prefer a 747/A380 route with a traditional kangaroo stop over.
