I realized something a little while ago. There are only 5 important international airlines that fly to Nepal, Austrian, Air India, Royal Nepal, Thai and Singapore. Why don't more airlines fly to this important tourist destination. I wish that someone like JAL or ANA would fly there. To get there from LA you have to make 2 connections, in Tokyo/Osaka/Taipei/Hong Kong (If you connected on Cathay Pacific/Northwest or United) and in Singapore/Bangkok for someone on the east coast they could connect in Delhi, Frankfurt (Royal Nepal flies there) or Vienna. But for us on the west coast it's a pain. Is it that the Kathmandu airport is too small? No I doubt it since Lauda used to fly 777s there before Austrian took over with 767s. ANA could fly 767s their, maybe Cathay Pacific could send a 330 there? Any responses would be apreciated. By the way did anyone realize that three of the five airlines that fly their are in Star- Alliance; Thai, Singapore & Austrian!
