I understand there are direct flights from HKT to Moscow on 744, but that is not as far as London!
A problem with BA’s Thai offering is that it is not two centre. Many people who go there want to see Bangkok and beaches like at Phuket, and travel on local airlines around the country, or by land. And airlines like QR and EK do, so to compete maybe HKT would be ideal. If 772 or 787 can do HKT- London nonstop, then why not have the route extended to Bali. I am sure this would get some decent premium traffic as well as Y passengers.
If the runway is not long enough at HKT for flights to London, how about not having the new Colombo flight stopping in Male, but making that non stop and extending that flight to HKT?
Or stopping at the brand new Habnantota in south Sri Lanka!?
