Also from destinations like CPT and CAN there will be few pax with onward flights, i.e. fewer pax will misconnect if these destinations are selected than e.g. BKK or SIN (admittedly, HKG would be expected to have many pax with onward flights ex HKG).
I guess many of us are interested to find out what these unforseen reasons are.
