Just curious why there's only one US airline (DL) flying this market. I know Russian visa regulations are stringent, but it would seem that given the size of the market and increasing pocket power in Russia, there would be more US airlines willing to take the plunge, e.g., IAD-MOW on UA or ORD-MOW on AA. I searched the forum and came across an old thread about proposed EWR-MOW service on CO slated to start in May 2005. Whatever happened to this? I searched CO's website and it shows no service to any MOW airports.
How 'bout connections to Far Eastern Russia from NRT, HKG, etc? It's a wild idea, but how 'bout UA doing 3 or 4 flights per week from NRT or HKG to VVO. It's completely underserved, has an expat community and is thriving economically.
Thanks in advance!
