A Complete, Updated List of Fifth-Freedom Routes

Correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t it KUL-OOL-AKL before they had the Sydney stop.

Flying AKL-SYD earlier this year on Air Asia it was about 70% full but 99% of that was down the back with only two in the flatbeds and a handful in the quiet zone.

That being said almost everyone onboard was just flying AKL-SYD with very few actually continuing to KUL, perhaps they’ve realised slots/airport fees etc are better from the Gold Coast or total tin foil hat they’re now getting a QLD or QAL subsidy. Air Asia is now the only wide body operator to the Gold Coast and those terminal expansions that QAL did are looking a little silly now.
Fifth freedom routes are not that easy for foreign airlines to make money on. See the previously linked article ...
 
United Airlines Tokyo (NRT) to Saipan (SPN) is not a fifth freedom route since Saipan is part of the United States.

EK launching daily flights between Miami and Bogota from June 2024
 
LATAM LA 4409 (4408 the other way)
Miami USA to Medellín COLOMBIA

Should this be listed here, or is this invalid because of LA subsidiaries in other south american counties?
 
EK's new SIN-PNH route is interesting:


LATAM LA 4409 (4408 the other way)
Miami USA to Medellín COLOMBIA

Should this be listed here, or is this invalid because of LA subsidiaries in other south american counties?

LATAM has a Colombian subsidiary so I'd probably say that one doesn't count.
