Where do they get all the extra capacity from? San Jose, Mauritius, Colombo, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro, just to name some new connections or more weekly flights ..

New aircraft deliveries, together with typically a 3-times weekly schedule for the new long haul destinations, means that they can serve "all" these destinations with fewer aircraft as new planes enter the fleet.

A lot of Chinese destinations are reduced during winter season to 2 weekly flights...
Indeed some additional aircraft also arriving/arrived.

More leisure routes are rumored to coming up/return
San Juan/Cancun or Puerto Vallarta are also in picture

Have they received additional deliveries since the slew of cancellations in the last few months?
