Chicago about a year too late. The market is already there, one carrier on the route and American standard service to boot. We would have cleaned up, but upset AA, our embedded LCC.

CX has always been conservative to the point of timidity on new routes. A company doctrine inherent in Swire, but frustrating to those of us who see obvious safe markets.

Abu Dhabi will be Amahs and ar**oles, polite and smiling workers going to or returning from virtual slavery and impossibly arrogant business classers of all races up the front.

And yet it is not such a bad place to spend a couple of nights...
