I think this is a cool topic that coincides with the "What routes you'd like to see from your airport" thread

My choices from ROC (yes, yes, I am a dreamer)

Southwest to ISP, BWI, LAS, PHX
Frontier to DEN
Hooters air to anywhere!  Big thumbs up
Virgin or British Airways to LHR/LGW
Lufthansa to FRA
Air Canada/Air Alliance to YUL, YOW
Jetblue(My employer) to FLL,IAD,LGB,OAK
Air New Zealand with 1x weekly service to AKL via LAX (I'd like to see them get a 747-400 into ROC's 8001' runway!!!!!)

Aeromexico: A SkyTeam member, would be able to pull in feed off DL at BOS (YHZ, Fredericton, BTV, BGR, PWM, etc.)
Frontier: we lost them after 9/11; let's get them back

JetBlue: there is competition between BOS and MHT for B6. I think MHT gets the nod.
AirTran: another possibility, especially with today's order
American: it seems like we are the largest airport (3.5M pax/year) in America that doesn't have AA or Eagle service.

Well, since SWA will not come. . .people 'round here are doing just fine with F9. So, we're just fine domestically. Now, some more international airlines would be nice. My "reality" list would consist of: ANA or JAL, Air France, Aer Lingus.

Ding! You are now free to keep supporting Frontier.

In Toulon (France), I'd love to see some scheduled flight of some German airlines, charter or regular.
TLN, located on the French riviera, is very close to some very popular destinations for German tourists: St Tropez for example, and the airport is far less busy than NCE...

South African Airways to Johannesburg and Cape Town, perhaps en route to Tokyo (?744)
Kenya Airways to Nairobi (perhaps via Mumbai) (767)

Air Tahiti Nui from LHR to PPT. Instead of the usual LAX stopover maybe they could pick somewhere more interesting, a different routing and give pax a choice of stopover? Could they operate non stop with an Airbus? Love to see them at T4....

Virgin Atlantic from LHR (highly unlikely! But I love the livery!)
and it would be cool to have an Asian company (SQ, JAL, etc.) start a route from here, but that too will most probably never happen!

I love topics like this. My airport is LGA.

I would like to see Southwest, as then their passengers that are coming to New York would not have to land all the way out Long Island (my friends) and spend $50 to get to the city. Plus their 737s with winglets are ALWAYS welcome at LGA.

LGA isn't an international airport, so it's tough to think of airlines.

I'd LVOE to see FedEx, and have three holers coming in again!

Or UPS. Can DC-8s land at LGA?

Not really a matter of me simply wanting to see Mesaba Saabs here in BIL (realizing that Mesaba pilots got shafted), but Mesaba did buy our 'flagship' carrier--It would be nice for them to do something up here. Still waiting, unless anyone knows anything further...
