Fantastic. Looking forward to the official announcement. I'm assuming 3 x weekly with a 332 to start off.
I would expect PVG should be able to do fairly well, but it is concerning that CZ has not been able to get much traction in its time in the PER market.
PER doesn’t have a significant Chinese population, unlike SYD and MEL, which also hinders its chances to gain a foothold in the market. BNE has only recently started gaining momentum, but for a long time it also struggled to gain attention given the focus on tapping into the larger markets first.
Good luck to them with this trial.
CAN has no denying been somewhat of a slow burner, but the O&D demand from Perth to Shanghai would be light years ahead of the demand to Guangzhou. CAN relies almost entirely on connections.
