Unfortunately, probably just a further entrenchment of an Asian leisure strategy from the East Coast, like SYD / MEL - CTS (seasonal) and SYD / MEL - PNH.
Thinking outside the box, IMO, a JQ 788 hub could work well out of PER (PER - BOM / CPT / NRT). Some AKL flights to the likes of NRT would be good too.
