Re: Nordic Aviation - 2019

A321LR has a range of 7,400km, while A321XLR has 8,700km. With A321XLR, AY could fly to entire China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, India, Canada and almost to the entire USA. A321LR can reach Korea, India, and almost Canada entirely. So, we can probably assume, that AY is heading to Japan, USA and China...

Is it three widebodies (two 350 and one 787) flying together in a triangular formation from HEL to NRT? What about (wet)leasing a couple of A380? Not very expensive? The A350 has better cargo hauling potential. But in passenger numbers A380 would make sense. JL also could put the B773 on the route.
