I'm honestly surprised they don't already have a direct flight to Indi - no oneworld airline does (just Air India I think?). Australia has such as MASSIVE Indian population that I'm sure if priced well, it would sell out no worries. Mumbai, Delhi, or Bangalore would be my go to places (though I reckon Mumbai makes more sense).

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.
Watch ebay for old QF printed timetables.

I was under the impression that these Chicago flights never eventuated in the end.
They tried an A330 tag flight from SIN a while ago, didn't work out that well. Rumour was too many staff kept calling in sick for the tag flight.
Yep. I believe the tag flight even was a 747 at one point. Didn't have a good arrival time off my memory.

So the main reason why these routes were stopped (and many others including mainland Europe and Africa) was because....
Oh and, even though DXB was started long after oneworld formed, it got chopped (boo hoo) meaning QF has officially packed up their bags and left the Middle East for good.

I don't think SIN was losing money in the previous state, though acknowledge a percentage of people preferred not to fly via DXB.

Most of those mid west eastern US cities you mention would require an intermediate stop and as stops cost money and as they cannot pick up passengers can quickly become non-viable. The clear exception is New York, but that involves a LA hub with passengers from three routes joining. The others probably couldn’t hub enough high yiepassengers through.
