I think most of Asia seems to be doing quite OK, and I hope that it is not "streamlined" any further.

Personally I would like to see Seoul, Beijing non-stop and Guangzhou in Asia, all routes that should hopefully see an increase in traffic with the FTAs coming online.

As for India, perhaps it makes more sense for QF to extend one of its Singapore flights onto Mumbai and/or Delhi instead of offering a direct service? Perhaps QF can relaunch PER-SIN also to provide extra feed onto that service?


Perhaps QF can leverage Perth as a 'Western Hub' and fly PER-Mumbai?

Where's Perth again ;) !!
With that lack of geographic knowledge, you could be eligible to serve on the Qantas Board! ;-)

There are no Qantas int'l flights out of Perth any more and JQ has none of what they call business class on their planes. Makes it difficult for QFF to travel to Asia. Qantas helpfully suggests we fly via Snydey instead.

Expansion to Asia PER-SIN doesn't have a plane issue as a 738 can fly it. And at least the 738s have a domestic level of business seating.

And all of India is within 3000mi of SIN. As is most of China and Korea.

Happy wandering (as far from SYD as possible)
