DMM will be just a tag on from BAH with no 5th freedom flights between BAH and DMM.

(Or BAH is a bit soft). We might see a decoupling if evidence supports sufficient demand. Quite a few new routes yet to launch this year will use up all the slack in the system pending 350 deliveries going online in October proper
