PHE-AKL on VN by March 2019!? I'll have whatever this guy is drinking please! I will honestly be gobsmacked if VN starts PHE before PER. Yes, it seems crazy - from an AKL-perspective, NZ already flies non-stop between AKL and SGN, so competition will be fierce. In addition, local O&D between PH...

If that's so, then why does PER get a direct flight to HKG, when peop...
