I found this quote in an old FR news article from Feb 2013 talking about the EK link up and loss of BA codeshares,
However, Qantas is considering opening up more Asian destinations from 2016 if the performance of Qantas International improves, with Beijing, Seoul, Mumbai, Delhi and Tokyo-Haneda under consideration.

HND is happening. Likelihood of the others?

The question is what aircraft would they use, considering they have none available in this time frame to expand.

The 787s. The options that QF have for the 789s are for delivery of the aircraft from 2016.

I wonder how many seats they sell on the Manila flight? And even the Hawaii flight (esp with JQ running a 787 there). I wonder if A330s could be stolen from there any sent to India?

If you are going to steal an A330 for Mumbai it would need to be a 332. In fact you may well recall the international 332's were obtained specifically for this flight *and China), when 333 operated Mumbai they had to stop in Singapore.

As for Hawaii apparently Qantas does ok on those flights even with JQ on the route too and Manila who knows, but clearly, like Jakarta it is 4 days a week, so they must be able to justify those flights.

Ta see that now, so yeah shows maybe not a good idea to give up MNL, which is not a surprise really because if it was bad Qantas would have cut it by now.

Bugger all competition as well with PR and Cebu Pacific to contend with

More leisure routes maybe going over to JQ, BKK?

Cant see QF pulling out of BKK. If they were going to then surely based on AJ's previous comments around non profitable routes it would have already been culled.

The same documents above show BKK is doing ok too with 88% seat utilisation.
