But it seems like Asia-LAX traffic is down significantly over the last couple of months. Yes, there is certainly less demand for China-made widgets under the Christmas tree. But is there more to it?
Direct 777 flights seem particularly fewer, with 747F flights via ANC down by less, but still down.
Are there pax in these 77W flights from Asia to LAX? Every now and then I see a China Southern A388, so I guess there must be some pax looking to deal with all the quarantine restrictions. But really?
How can I tell if a 77W has passengers or if it is freight-only? I assume no easy answer, but are airlines still running pax-empty 77Ws just for belly freight?
