@flybyJAS The A321LR would be perfect for the Swedish market. As Sweden has such a low population but such an important economic market.
@winglets747 A321neoLR a natural evolution for Qatar Airways, which has used A319s and A330s to try out new markets. Strategy of building-up thinner markets different from Emirates and Etihad, but some would say not profitable.
@winglets747 Airports increasingly taking initiative to find under-served passenger routes, pair with other airport and then pitch to airline for service. Airports will also increasingly work with airlines to help them boost belly loads.
@winglets747 Amsterdam Schiphol overall cargo volume down 2.5% in 2018 – but because of decrease in freight flights. Belly cargo up 4.1%.
@winglets747 UAE improved visa access for Chinese nationals. That saw 9% increase in Chinese visitors to Dubai in 1H2018. Chinese airlines added more flights. Partnerships are logically the next part of the equation. Also: Chinese govt push to Middle East. Where govt goes, airlines follow.
