The point remains direct does not imply a stop. Direct may or may not include a stop. For example SYD-MEL, SYD-LHR.
A stop is communicated by the use of the term non-stop.
If we look at the press release there is a route map that shows routes that are both non-stop and with a stop.
Correct. You'll notice my comment was in response to someone who said that Direct=Non-stop which we know isn't 100% true. Direct can be non-stop bit it doesn't mean that it is. Direct just means that there is one flight number between two destinations with however many intermediate stops the airline deems necessary.
