While most of my data are anecdotal, I suspect that Asia may be more stimulable (at least on paper) because I think there's a lot more double ticketing going on to Asia. From a market like IND (or CVG or BNA), there are still a lot of Asia itineraries where a stop and multiple tickets make sense. A nonstop to an Asian hub would change that.
Is IND's East Asia demand pretty TYO-centric? Or would ICN make more sense post-JV?
IND's East Asia demand is pretty spread out... But ICN is bigger O&D but not by a lot
3.Beijing: 9,371 +174.6%
4.Tokyo: 9,196 -32.4%
CVG's East Asia demand is pretty spread out as well I believe... but Tokyo(6,342) is larger than ICN(4,826)
BNA is more TYO centric
