I want to find out about the preference of both Japanese/non-Japanese passengers when flying to/from Japan when it comes to connecting to domestic services. From what I gathered, in the UK, passengers from MAN or GLA would rather transit in continental Europe (or beyond) for their medium/longhaul flights, or direct from their local airports whenever possible. So this translates to a preference on SQ's MAN-SIN-SYD over BA's MAN-LHR-SIN-SYD.
Drawing the same analogy for Japan, does this happen for passengers from 'smaller' Japanese airports when it comes to international connections? Yes KIX receives a large number of international connections that would rival NRT, but for destinations not served directly from the home airport, would people from (or flying to) OSA/NGO/FUK/CTS/SDJ/etc fly via KIX/NRT, or prefer to connect in a foreign airport, in particular HKG, ICN, SIN and LAX?
EDIT: I want to find out about the general preference of passengers (rather than personal), and if there's a difference between Japanese and non-Japanese. So please don't move this to Av Polls and Prefs Forum.
