There are other rich countries much closer to these places e.g. Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Japan etc.
India is by far the biggest source country of migrants coming to Australia these days.

It still doesn't mean anything, the most immigrants of any country are in America. I guess when their population is 1.3 billion they will be everywhere.

Actually I was reading that Indians and Asians are slowly but surely becoming the majority in Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

And they are the fastest growing ethnic group in the USA.

Maybe the anglosphere will be ruled by Asians and Indians?

Yeah, that it is. I visit my relatives there once every year and I gotta say that plane ride is a lulu. It takes around 18 hours total flight time on Emirates not including a stopover in Dubai.

Sometimes, I wish I lived in Europe so the flight distance would be a lot shorter. But oh well, I guess you can't have everything.

I know, i'm into aviation and most of the longest flights are from America to India. The flights from here to America are long enough, I get very bored but its bareable.

My next flight is 6 hours.

Every single Indian immigrant in America that I have contact with is either highly educated or very business minded in some cases both, I have never met a poor uneducated Asian Indian, they aren't immigrating to America.

The India trip used to be much better aboard British Airways. It used to go from Washington DC to London to Kolkata. Then it stopped. Then I flew on KLM and Lufthansa a couple of times. But they also stopped.

Now, the only game in town seems to be Emirates and Qatar. That 14 hour flight from Washington DC is kind of stressful. But at least it's not as bad as some people on the west coast have it when they have to cross the Pacific.

The longest flight in the world is London-Sydney, yet that doesn't stop Brits from migrating to eastern Australia. What is it, a million Brits call Australia home yet Australia is an 18-22 hour flight away from the UK

China and the UK are the biggest sources as well.
Both Indian and Chinese recent migrants are usually well off or educated.
While most pople in the 2 countries still cannot afford a trip to destinations outside of Asia.

London to NZ flight is longer.
Most Britons can afford a trip to Asia and Australia. You can see many of them in Thailand and Australia. It is at most a few months of British salaries.
