New flight to link Kunming to San Francisco

I've flown Kunming - Beijing - San Fran and Kunming - Shanghai - LAX. Why is any flight from Kunming to another Chinese city then connecting to a US destination news?

I agree, no better than any other 1-stop flight to the US.

News would be a be a direct, non-stop Kunming to US flight as would befit an international city and airport.

All flights have at least one stop. Non-stop flights don't really exist.

@redjon,
I just looked on Ctrip. Even that flight to Paris has at least one stop.

China Eastern keeps bragging about "links" to cities in other countries (from Kunming), but of course that's always been available if you have to fly to other cities.

What they are adding recently is direct flights to places like San Francisco from other coastal cities, not from Kunming.

I think a lot of it is about the planes they use and how much fuel those planes are able to carry.

That combined with to Chinese air companies full planes are the bottom line; even going somewhere close by can involve a quick stop to pick up passengers.
