So, i am sorry to be annoying and starting new threads. :D But, this is somewhat a question that maybe on the minds if plane manufacturers and airlines. With the increasing range of aircrafts (777 LR) what do you think would happen to the hub culture in the future. Will places like Singapore able to attract as many customers as it does now? Now that routes like New Delhi - JFK are possible directly how would hubs cope with loss of transit passengers, specially as some hubs thrive on that sector? Or, would the people still prefer a one stop routine for there long journeys?
