Today you would likely via Dubai, or perhaps take one of the long flights say Zurich -> NRT.
If I'm not mistaken Dubai came to it's current position in early 2000s, so in the 90s it was not the typical international hub it is today. And the longer Europe -> Asia legs were not common.
What would have been a typical route in the middle nineties?
More generally, is there an "expedia of the past"?
As a child (70s) I know all the typical routes, say, UK - Australasia in that era, but they have all changed drastically. Is there any way to find or know the typical routes of past decades? (Other than asking now-old airline staff!)
