I think ET is starting their fourth weekly to Guangzhou in January.

Has KQ started Guangzhou yet?

Virgin Nigeria added Johannesburg to its growing route network, initially with 3 weekly flights operated by its Airbus A340.

Guangzhou will actually remain at 3x, it's HKG that's going up to 4x at ET. All flights to both cities via BKK.

Looks like however that KQ is scaling back BKK/HKG to just 3x, and operate Guangzhou 3x via DXB (as it does now).

While we still cannot tell much these days with the airline industry, considering KQ's parents (AF and KL) already having a foothold of Africa-US traffic, maybe anything to the US would not come by soon.

KQ ordered another 772ER. Wonder if ET is next to jump on the T7 bandwagon.

ET has already gone for 10x 787s, which would allow it to get to long distances nonstop and provide more frequency.

Btw, another development is KL will be using the A332 on flights to Addis Ababa come next summer, nixing its 767 service. Frequency remains at 2x per week, as a triangle route with KRT.

Virgin Nigeria will incorporate to its fleet 733 to replace the wet-leased 320 from BH Air. It will allow a daily rotation between LOS and DLA and improve connectivity between LOS and ABV and PHC.

RAM increases frequencies to ABJ, AMS, BCN, BOD, ROM, CKY, YMQ and SXB.

Load factors on WDH to LON are more than 70%!!!
