SU/CX codeshare operates MOW-HKG daily operated by SU. Will CX start flying to MOW by its own metal?

I hope TG keeps up with its announcement this time. BKK-MOW and BKK-JNB would do great.

TGBoi: Anything about OSL? Last time the plan was going to be extension from ARN or CPH but didn't happen.

That's great news. I love to hear about new flights to Russia.

What are the load factors on those SU/CX flights? And what are they flown with? B777?

Nope. From what I see in Amadeus, it is opt with B763, into SVO.

Wait are there like 2 int'l airports in MOW?

Yep. I was quite surprised that TG will use DME, since all other STAR carriers use SVO. But I think it is a good choice for TG since DME are much more modern and convenient than SVO.
