1) Perhaps ETA Unknown could enlighten me in his comment that every Asian airline falls into this category compared to QF!
. I guess I would challenge that remark.
's argument for 5th freedom rights from OZ
-US is more than just
NumberTwelve's characterization of SQ is crying!
. Qantas vis a vis Jetstar Asia has started their own LCC based in Changi. So, from their perspective the Singapore government is keeping the "ball flat" what ever that means.
I honestly think the consumer would benefit from more competition on the OZ
-US routes. The traffic SQ
really would like to capture is the premium market. Right now there are two choices, QF
. I would say QF
are on one level and then UA
is perhaps a few notched down. I think if you look at the amount of traffic on the routes, you will see the premium cabins are consistently full, while the economy cabin loads fluctuate with the seasons, just as the price does.
