Guess who is flying non-stop from Houston to Moscow? From San Francisco to Hong Kong? From Los Angeles to Tokyo?
United of course, and you may expect Aeroflot, Cathay or ANA on some of those segments. Would you believe Singapore Air, with its exceptional service and generally one of the youngest fleets in the avaiation industry?
It is good to see global avaiation open up to more competition beyond airlnes of origin and destination. The provisions for such competition have been in place since 1944 but nationalistic tendencies always come in the way.
Now can you imagine if we could do similar for domestic travel? And global telecoms so we could get the best of Korea and Japan here and a more competitive global roaming marketplace?
