Due to high competitive pressure from LCC I donīt see much expansion/new destinations within Europe.

The annual report also has the split by regions and the IR comments hint at where they make their money. Americas/TATL seems to be the bulk of the business, China brings profits, NME & India fills the back of the bus across the atlantic.

They already took a deep look at the China and India operations, SE Asia will be next. EK & co don't really have a geographic advantage in the N.Asia - Europe business, so LH and other European legacy carriers should be able to keep that business somewhat profitable.

Europe will see new or reactivated routes, even though LCC pressure is severe. The recent RTM was a prime example
