How come no direct flights to ICN or HND/NRT from DAC?

Sun Feb 16, 2020 5:15 am

I was wondering why NH, JL, or KE can't add DAC as a destination from their hubs? All those airlines serve destinations in India along with KE serving Sri Lanka. With UA, DL, and AA having JV's with those airlines, how can they not make DAC work but somehow CX, TG, and SQ can make DAC work?

BG was supposed to resume NRT last year but for whatever reason it didn't come to fruition.

OZ trialed some charters to DAC recently. Could be a precursor to scheduled service since that's what they also did with BCN and VCE. I don't really get why they would drop DEL and serve DAC instead, though.

Premium demand. It isn't there yet. Much like London to Calcutta, it isn't showing yields to be high enough.

Unfortunately for DAC, there aren't as many hubs to transfer in as there are between London and Calcutta. BKK and HKG are the obvious ones; however, they are majorly out of the way, with HKG adding almost 20% and BKK adding nearly 40% to the trip!

I was going to use Calcutta as an example as well. Big population but very little business demand and no tourism.

Any chance NH could add DAC-NRT as they serve RGN?
