In the future, I’d like to see North Korea opening up to the world, just even a little more. I honestly believe that there is probably a lot of beautiful places to visit in North Korea, and it would indeed be very intriguing, to say the least to visit the country.
Despite all the negativity portrayed on media, and a rather evil image they have gotten. I believe that in a future where North Korea isn’t heavily guarded as a secretive nation, that is isolating themselves from the world, that’s where, a more open North Korea, is where I see the potential for growth. And since Air China is now planning on operating the A330 to Pyongyang, it would be optimistic of me to say that this will pave the way for more, I don’t know, tourism, visits, uh, more people going to North Korea, but I do think that it is the beginning of where I personally feel that more heavies will be flying to Pyongyang in the future. May that future be 20, 50, 90 years away, but opening up its airspace just a little, and having more than Air China to operate out of North Korea, would most definitely benefit their economy first and foremost.
I have hope, and faith in that aviation will grow and bloom in the nation. One day, I think, we’ll see openness o a further extend there, and let Air China’s A330 service be the start of something new, that could, who knows, the wide-body may be an eye-opener for travel in masses to North Korea. And as for the IFE, either it will be turned off, most likely, or they may, just maybe may, and now I may be hoping for something positive, but, possibly they might advertise how great North Korea, but in a non-political manner but rather showing off how great their nation is, because, at the end of the day, you should be proud of your home country.
