Southeast Asian airlines are looking to non-stop US flights – despite profit challenges

 Vietnam Airlines will struggle to be profitable on non-stop flights between Vietnam and the United States due to a lack of demand from business travelers, but it may launch them anyway as early as next year, the carrier’s CEO said on Monday. Duong Tri Thanh, and his counterparts at other state-controlled Southeast Asian carriers such as Thai Airways International and Malaysia Airlines, are trying to balance government desires for growth with what is best for the airlines’ financial health in a competitive market.
