Re: How come Aeroflot doesn't fly to Singapore or Mumbai?

I was looking at Aeroflot's destinations for a up-coming trip to Europe from Asia and realised Aeroflot flies to LITERALLY every airport in Europe (both Western & Eastern). They need profitable growth amid the US sanctions and they could launch Singapore (large high yielding banking, Asia regio...

TAP Portugal Far East Asia possibilities

Due to the booming tourism in Portugal and to capture the Brazil-East Asia Market, could TAP Portugal fly to China Japan or Korea. They are getting new A330neos and they have extremely decent connections to Brazil. Thoughts?

Re: Question on Air China JNB service

A lot of African links go to Guangzhou area. I think it is popular with traders who buy stuff in Guangdong province to take home and sell. They still have to compete with Cathay Pacific who fly JNB as well. I guess with the current situation in Hong Kong, South Africans in the guangdong area and Ch...

Question on Air China JNB service

Why does Air China (CA867/868) not fly direct Beijing-Johannesburg anymore? What’s the rationale behind adding a Shenzhen stopover? Would like to hear thoughts.

Re: Japan to Amsterdam

Japanese carriers are limited to fellow partner hubs and major financial centers. Their average fares are rather high therefore there aren't many places where they can make money. As you mentioned, there is no feed in AMS. This is also the case in MXP, FCO or IST. Well, as I have mentioned on the H...

Re: How come Aeroflot doesn't fly to Singapore or Mumbai?
