Apparently, my submission objecting to the cancellation of the route counts as "no feedback". Tells you who really matters.On Thursday, the watchdog said Emirates had provided evidence to support its claims, and that CCCS had received no feedback voicing concerns.
I believe they technically are as 3K is a Singaporean airline. But it's a bit of a grey area.Are flights between TPE and KIX operated by 3K considered 5th freedom?
I have removed BNE-HIR and MAJ-PNI from the list.
Removed from the list.I believe PR has stopped operating KIX - TPE.
Hi, the routes AMS- DMM - MCT and AMS - KWI - BAH operated by KLM have never been fifth freedom flights, since commercial tickets cannot be sold for the stretches DMM - MCT and KWI-BAH. However, the fifth freedom flight AMS - TPE - MNL is missing.Click HERE to view an article on this topic collaboratively compiled by our members using the (now retired) Wiki.
It has been suggested by @RooFlyer that an up-to-date list of fifth-freedom routes would be a useful AFF resource.
Fifth freedom flights are international routes that neither start nor end in the operating airline's home country. They typically operate as a "tag flight" extension to a flight that originates in the airline's hub. For example, the Singapore-London leg of QF1 is a fifth-freedom flight.
Fifth-freedom flights are great for numerous reasons:
· They're usually cheap
· Excellent award availability
· They typically use wide-body long-haul aircraft
· An opportunity to sample airlines you would otherwise never fly
· Can be handy for RTW bookings when you want to fly somewhere other than an alliance hub airport

The purpose of this thread is to provide a complete, up-to-date list of fifth-freedom routes. This thread can also be a place to discuss fifth-freedom flights in general.
I'll try to keep the wiki updated, but anyone is welcome to edit the wiki if any information is incorrect. Fifth-freedom routes change constantly, so there may be a few errors from time to time. AFF members are welcome to add any other fifth-freedom flights that I may have missed to the wiki. If you're unable to edit the wiki, just post in this thread.
