I'm surprised to see Da Nang. Maybe they are eyeing for transit passenger from the US.. I thought Penang or Yangoon would have been launched first as they announced in the ChiangMai inauguration ceremony... Does anyone know if Penang or Yangoon still happening?

Agree! This makes a lot of sense. I'm surprised they didn't do this sooner. And I bet it's aimed at European and US connecting passengers.

Wish this was from TSA! Da Nang is the perfect weekend getaway. My wife was looking at investment property in Da Nang a few years ago and I talked her out of it... regret that one! lol

I was planning to do Hoi An and Hue, but save a little time and skip DaNang. Not really a beach person, is there a good reason to re-consider?

Yeah I would regret that too. Huge investment potential.

If you're not a beach person the only other reason would be for the food. Tons of great beaches and resorts in DaNang, that alone is the reason why we go.

Thanks, that's what I assumed. I am a bit of a foodie, but I figure between Hoi An, Hue, HCMC and Hanoi I'll get my fill.

In that case yeah you'll hit it all, especially if you're going to HCMC and Hanoi.

Yes given how popular a tourist destination Da nang is, it's not surprising that the route is launched, especially there is no other fsc operating scheduled flights there from TPE. I just thought they would have prioritize Penang over Da Nang since there should be also good cargo volume from Penang. I guess CI already serves there that makes it harder for BR.

Does anyone know traditionally how far ahead Eva releases J award seats to Aeroplan for these single aisle regional flights ? CNX looks to be about 2 months out as an example ?

(Not so) patiently waiting for this flight to become Aeroplan bookable...
