Biman to Buenos Aires

Fri Jul 01, 2022 7:33 pm

Thinking both inside and outside the trapezoid, what's the chance Biman could launch a 787 flight Dhaka - Buenos Aires. Optional stop in Nouakchott for Air Mauretania west African connection traffic. Initially once weekly. I think the route would be awesome- what are your thoughts?!?

I don't see any economic reason to do so. LOS, LAD, ACC, JNB, CPT would be infinitely better options for a tech stop.

But I'm not opposed to it!

I love it! Someone on this planet is actually thinking beyound the square!
It think it's best served through JFK. The EZE routing is going to be thin from Dhaka, but Dhaka-JFK will be full due to Bangladeshi population in N.Y catchment area. From JFK, there will be quite alot of passengers heading to EZE. If 5th Freedom is offered- better still!

Alternative is from IAD airport, however does anyone know if there's enough Bangladeshi in Virginia/Maryland catchment areas? How about Argentinian population in the VA/MY catchment areas?

Another good option is also from Toronto. Biman is already serving Toronto, so adding EZE is doable- maybe on a 787 as oppose to B773 frame.

I can see the reasoning behind NKC- shorter routing but as the above post mentioned, not enough of passengers warrant this routing. If flying from North America, you can fly to EZE at least 3x weekly.

Is there even a market between the two cities? And do you think people from NKC are solvent enough to take vacations to EZE? Seems like demand from those places would fit on an ice cream cone.

Malaysia Airlines used to fly KUL to EZE via either JNB or CPT (can't remember) on a 744. It was a vanity group as I remember the CEO or the PM at the time had a property in Argentina.

I do not believe that the opening poster of the topic intended this to be serious discussion. I think it was more a satirical comment about another poster asking lots of questions in a very short time about some extremely unlikely long haul routes

It was actually through both JNB and CPT which made an already absurd route even more ridiculous.

David you are 100% correct! I think the other posts have mysteriously been deleted.
