I think the best part of Qantas is that their best destination network is in Asia and America. But (like the Middle East and Europe) they still have some terminated destinations. So my question is:
Why did Qantas terminate the following Asian and American cities?
Seoul (both airports):
Ho Chi Minh City:
What aircraft did they use on the routes prior to termination?
OPTIONAL: What was the flight number?
Anyone who knows the answers, thank you and please write it as I did above. If you have more information on one of these particular routes, fabulous!
P.S. This is my first post on the site, so I hope I get used to it.

Lucas, you asked this question before on FlyerTalk too and led everyone around on a goose chase...

Qantas has never flown its own aircraft to Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Washington or Ho Chi Minh - these were codeshares on other airlines.

Qantas definitely flew to Chicago in 2003, from Melbourne using a 747. From memory they also flew their own planes to Seoul from Brisbane in the mid 2000's

I wish Qantas would re start its Mumbai service in light of the Jet Airways collapse.
This is the info I know:

This was honestly one of the oddest threads I've read on Flyertalk. Expect it to be the same here.

You're asking all this information here instead of searching on Google because..?

I’m not sure what you mean when you say you don’t know why the route was stopped. I’m not sure what answer you are expecting other than the blatantly obvious explanation that the route was not commercially viable.

The short answer like other have said is ‘viability’. Most of those are not big business destinations for Australian business. Most others are.
