Re: DL closing NRT. Suspends NRT-SIN, Announces ICN-MNL

I've not done the math, but there is a vast number of flights by KE, OZ, and the various Korean LCCs to points across the Philippines. Is it possible that the capacity has been entirely soaked up by Korean carriers and KE isn't able to add another daily, year-round frequency on ICN-MNL without redu...

Re: DL closing NRT. Suspends NRT-SIN, Announces ICN-MNL

Air travel between the Philippines and South Korea is booming, so DL launching ICN-MNL is very exciting.
