I know this has been questioned several times, but I could not find a thread answering my needs. So I appeal to you in search for knowledge!!!!

Here it is a list of all US cities with international services (not including Canada, Mexico or Caribbean islands). I would like to know if I am missing any city which CURRENTLY has international service (and if possible to which destination)

Thanks!


ATL, BOS, BWI, CLT, DEN, DFW, DTW, IAD, IAH, LAS,
LAX, MIA, MCO, MEM, NYC, ORD, PDX, PHL, PHX, PIT,
PVD, SAN, SEA, SFO, CLE, CVG

A grand total of 25 gateways (plus many others to Mexico and Canada).

RDU would be one, with a daily to London. Also, SJC with a flight to Japan.

PVD does not have regularly scheduled flights to Europe.

You are missing AA's scheduled RDU to LGW and STL to LGW as well as BA's service TPA to LGW. Additionally, you did not consider the many charters that operate to SFB and RSW from Europe. You also missed MSP to AMS/LGW on NW.

You are also missing SJC to Tokyo service on AA, plus HNL to Tokyo service on any number of carriers. ANC to ICN on OZ is also missing.

Boeing 757/767:

PVD has a one weekly flight to Azores islands in mid Atlantic with SATA. It continues to Oporto, Portugal.


Thanks for your quick answers. I am sorry I did not include RDU and MSP. I was not aware of TPA services and thought STL had no service at all.


Anything else?

PVD is a seasonal service only. To make this easier I would stick to scheduled, year-round service.

OK, the topic says "US Gateways to EUROPE", but his message also asks international services to any destination so it is quite confusing. Which is which? Reading just from the topic, one has a feeling that everyone here has lost their sense of geography because the last time I checked Tokyo was still in Asia, unless the eastward expansion of NATO has created a new technicality! I thought I missed another news briefing by Rumsfeld claiming that Japan is new Europe!

SFB is served most of the year by charter airlines to the United Kingdom. I know none of them are scheduled but they carry so many pax between Europe and Sanford that I think they deserve a mention!

NYC has two main International airports , JFK which is in the Jamaica neighborhood of the Borough of Queens. And Newark Liberty International in the City of Newark New Jersey, JFK is about 15 miles and EWR about 16 miles from Mid-Town Manhattan.

Laguardia airport has service to Canada, Bermuda and the Bahamas. The only International airline at LGA is Air Canada, however LGA has no customs or immigration facilities.

All passengers are pre screened in either Canada, Bermuda, or the Bahamas.

Minneapolis/St.Paul Minnesota (MSP) is another European Gateway, NWA and Iceland Air fly to Europe from MSP.

Oakland has seasonal Corsair service to Paris. They also have seasonal service to the Azores. I can not remember who is flying it this year, but there is a thread on it somewhere. SJC has not seen Europe service since the short stint of AA SJC-CDG.

Not true at all, LGA does indeed have FIS facilities for customs/immigration processing if needed.

MSY deserves a nonstop to Europe...even more so than several cities that currently have it, but I won't mention names...you know who you are.

However, we may not see one for a long time, as the major airlines really aren't showing a lot of vision and foresight these days.

Well, the buzz from the bees is that Lufty has developed an eye for MSY as of last year... maybe we'll see something from them next summer.

Make sense... about the only two airports they can really get MSY traffic from is ORD/IAD. Not exactly the best transit options.

Lufty 3x weekly MSY-FRA, or AF 3x/week MSY-CDG....how the hell can that NOT make money for them?!?

Delta can downgrade ALL Atlanta flights to MD-80's due to a decrease in FRA/CDG connections, I really don't care...just give us what we need...

a NONSTOP FLIGHT TO EUROPE!

Not asking too much really.

in some instances... it's actually less efficient for an airline to operate a routine type of flight a few days per week than it is to do so daily.

LAX, MIA, MCO, MEM, NYC, ORD, PDX, PHL, PHX, PIT,
SAN, SEA, SFO, CLE, CVG, MSP, RDU, TPA, STL

(Scheduled Flights to Europe only) (in a year-round basis)

Is LGW-LAS Virgin's flight still seasonal????? In not it can be included in this list as well.

Why don't you humor us?

25 MSYtristar : RDU for example....and PDX....TPA even...surely, if those cities can enjoy the luxury of a direct U.S-Europe nonstop, MSY can.....you can also add CLE
26 Pitrules : Nothing personal, but all those cities you mentioned (other than MEM) are much larger business centers than MSY. BA service to MSY didn't last long at
27 ContinentalEWR : US Gateways to Europe: Boston Newark New York/JFK Philadelphia Baltimore Washington D.C. Charlotte Raleigh/Durham Atlanta Orlando Miami Tampa Houston
28 MSYtristar : BA flew here in 1982 during the big oil bust. Things were doing great here on the business front until around 1979/1980...that's when the oil bust hit
29 Blink182 : I thought AA dropped SJC-CDG when they dropped SJC-TPE. I could be wrong though. blink

33 Post contains images MSYtristar : Hands down, MEM would not even be CONSIDERED for a nonstop Europe flight if it were not for the prescence of NWA. All MEM has going for it is FedEx. T
34 FlyPNS1 : The problem with MSY (beyond being too close to ATL, IAH) is that too much of the traffic is leisure oriented. The business market just isn't strong e
35 MSYtristar : I think the arguments can go both way when thinking about it. Sure, MSY would be a mostly un-proven market, and it's true that airline's don't like to
36 Bobnwa : Steve in NOLA, Why do you think there are no non-stops MSY to Europe. If all your reasons for having service are correct, why doesn't any airline know

38 MSYtristar : Bobnwa, MSY has pretty much just been overlooked by the major's when it comes to International service. Period. All of the airline's efforts seem to b
39 Post contains links ModernArt : While I can appreciate the zeal of those from New Orleans' for expanded service the numbers are simply not there to justifiy regular European service,
40 Tbear815 : So for all the talk about MSY, why couldn't a European carrier transit a few times a week on its way to MEX or similar? Just a thought.
41 Caetravlr : Even if there is a lot of traffic coming from Europe to MSY, connecting it with one city in Europe non stop does not really offer a lot of convenience
42 PROSA : What about RDU's service to LGW? AA started it when the carrier had a hub at RDU, but it seems odd that the service has outlived the hub. I know it's
43 MSYtristar : Question: Who else thinks this would be a good route for Air France? Air France, CDG-MSY-IAH, 3X weekly, Airbus A330 Seems to me like it'd be a winner
