Re: Moderators support DTW, censor any opposing view

I can tell all the conspiracy lot that the OP is patently wrong.

Moral of the story: When you see a post that throw...

I see what you mean, but all of the cities you stated (except IAD) are not Star Alliance hubs. That means that Asiana can draw on very little of NONE of the traffic there. That means that the only two cities in the US that they would start would be IAH or IAD, by your logic. You do have a good poin...

That seems like a lot more fuel burn than just flying straight in above IAD ...
