Congrats to QR
. Interesting to see how they seem to pursue a strategy of relatively small capacity for these types of routes. Also, they just announced ARN
with a 319-100 LR
. Interesting as opposed to EK
, who always set in a lot of capacity on a new route. Seems like QR

As for MAA

should not get everything! I think the route sounds viable; particularly given the high frequencies /low volume set-up (Hey:.! I said something nice about a new route to India..!! (you know who you are!

Funny thing about the fuzz about DPS
; Eu airlines pulled out becuae it was too low yield - with EK
getting massive feed from Europe, would they have a good chance?
