As a plane spotter, I would love to see Delta back in HKG
with its own aircraft.
But, you would need to analyze whether the economics weigh up. Just off the top of my head - what is the potential demand for a direct HKG
flight with ATL
as a destination?
How convenient is it for people to transit through Delta's ATL
hub, if they are going to go elsewhere in the Americas ?
What other options are there for that transit traffic in the Americas - LAX
What other options are there elsewhere for that transit traffic - NRT
How much would Delta need to spend to establish themselves in this marketplace for marketing, and what would they need to do to differentiate themselves from their established competitors? If it's cost, (and it usually is) then they can ill afford to.
My guess is that I will have to go elsewhere to see their aircraft, and not in HKG
, at least for a few years!
