Re: Finnair to launch Helsinki—Beijing Daxing this November, becoming 1st inter’l carrier to operate at both PKX and PEK

That Russia should impose a quota even on overflight frequencies looks strange to me. They do this to protect SU that is also doing Europe-Asia transit business in competition against AY? Last I checked, Russia was a sovereign nation, and not a participant in the International Air Services Transit ...

Re: Finnair to launch Helsinki—Beijing Daxing this November, becoming 1st inter’l carrier to operate at both PKX and PEK

Interesting move, especially if it is year round. Aren't AY close to maxing out their Siberia overflights (at least in summer)? I wonder if other routes will be axed in Summer 2020 to maintain this service.

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...

The RDU-LHR flight was originally started with a subsidy, but it apparently makes enough money on its own and hasn't relied on the subsidy for a number of years now. GSK in fact have shut down most of their operations in RTP in favour of Philadelphia.

Re: Finnair long haul routes

It seems like HEL is well-placed for PHL-Asia connections. Highly doubtful. Connection times will be significant. Flights from the east coast to Europe are generally red-eyes, as are most of Finnair's flights to Asia. Flights back to North America probably depart before flights from Asia arrive in ...

Nope. The USA-HKG bilateral has nothing to do with the PRC. It sadly hasn't been updated since October 2002; open skies wasn't even a forethought with them at that time.
