China Flights


#1

Why is it so hard for a carrier to launch a flight to China? With CO,UA,NW,DL,AA,US,MX all battling for china service, how is it decided who gets the very coveted route??? thnkx


#2

Because the agreement betwwen the US and China allows very few flights.

Political influence, grassroots support, which markets need to be served, etc.
