– Oman Air has Business Class fares from Zurich to Manila for $1,700 Round Trip – most of these fares work one-way for about half price too
– Qatar is boosting service to Colombo, Sri Lanka with a fourth daily service (Sri Lankan is a codeshare partner of Qatar and adds even more service)
– Etihad is finally discovering the right destinations in Central Asia and is planning a Baku flight soon
Baku will work great for Etihad as O&D.
– Etihad is beginning to write down the investments in Alitalia and Air Berlin and produced $1.89 billion dollar losses
I can’t see a scenario where Air Berlin and Alitalia survive in their current format. There will be more losses from those investments.
