if you were feeling smug about a Thai service starting next year
Doesn't 3 or 4 weekly from 2007 sound better? A year earlier than they originally planned - perhaps MAN
's powers of persuaion have worked?

and Qatar airways are getting loads of new aircraft, and they already fly into MAN. They might increase their services and effectively operate MAN to NZ and Oz via Dubai/Abu Dhabi.
According to a recent CAA survey, around 25% of EK
passengers continued through to Australia in 2003, with the overall MAN
-wherever-Australia sector having over 180,000 passengers (northwest England's O+D figure to Australia was 140,000).

Quoting MAAN (Reply 41):
I see enough passengers each day who are on a MAN-ORD-LAX routing to suggest that there may well be enough demand for a direct route, although of course that would see a big drop for AA.
There probably is, but the yield would be horrendous.
How succesful do you think a weekly VS
service to LAX
would be, given that they should be able to fill up via Virgin Holidays. They should be able to operate this in conjuction with a LAS
service and also routes to the Caribbean as and when a 2nd 744 becomes "based".
