Biman To Italy: What Are The Loads?

Fri Nov 18, 2011 5:48 pm

In the light of the 2nd 777 delivered to Biman, I did some research on the airline and found out it had routes between Bangladesh and Italy!

I do wonder what are the loads on such an exotic route? I seriously doubt Italia is a popular destination for Banglaseh people and neither Italians travel to Bangladesh.

I also do not believe that Italians travelling to Asia would use Dhaka as an entry point. hence my question, how can Biman load-up a 777? or generate revenue out of the route.

Quoting Tolosy (Thread starter):

No doubt for Bangladeshi VFR travel, i.e. an ethnic route. Depending upon what is read, there are between 83,000 and 600,000 Bangladeshis in Italy. That is some disparity!
