Unfair fares

There seems to be a great deal of concern about the downturn in tourism.

I thought I might arrange for family members to visit from Canada and the United States.

I discovered airline fares for flights starting from the 'other end' are about twice what I would expect to pay in Hong Kong. Why can I buy a round-trip ticket to Toronto for about $6,000, but a flight to Hong Kong from Toronto is about $11,000? How about it Air Canada? United Airlines? Northwest? What is your excuse for this one? NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
