I don't seem to find topics and discussion regarding Myanmar and its aviation, so here it goes.
With growth/booming prospects of civil aviation in the region (South Asia/Pacific Rim), I find odd that Myanmar has made very little progress, if at all. The national airlines, MAI, has fleet like 2 737 serving BKK, DEL, KUL like 2-3 times a week. I don't buy into politics (China has similar type of govt), I'm just bewildered a bit.
What types of potential do MAI have (also imagine their livery on wide-bodies)? Besides promoting tourism for Myanmar, it can conveniently serve as a connecting point between Eastern India and East/Southeast Asia, possibly even to US/Europe (if it can absorb some passengers from DAC and CCU), the current once weekly CCU-RGN by IC is a complete joke, perhaps there're other things I haven't heard of.
