Doesn't DL fly JFK-IST (Istanbul)? That or ATL-IST I think. I don't think that any US carriers fly to Prague or Budapest or any other cities in that region or further east. Most of those cities aren't large enough and/or plugged into the western economy enough to warrant these routes, I wouldn't think.

There are two airports in Bucharest. BUH stands for Bucharest Metropolitan Area. OTP is Bucharest Otopeni International while BBU is Bucharest Baneasa City Airport. Distance between the two is 20 min drive although Baneasa is only 15 min drive to downtown Bucharest. Some domestic routes, VIP flights, LCC, and charters are operated out of Baneasa BBU.

I Love ORD,the UA 744 you saw in Krakow (Balice) was used to transport news reporters to Krakow during pres.Bush's visit there in May of this year, so it was a charter, although ELAL often flies their 744's into Krakow and Warsaw, for obvious reasons.
Second of all, as of now, there are no American air carriers in Central/Eastern Europe. DL did serve Warsaw in mid 1990's, my mom flew with them once, LOT had a code share with Americans, as well as many other airlines in the region. United will start services to Poland in the time coming due to their new codeshare with PLL LOT, perhaps there will even be a service to Krakow, Warsaw is a sure bet.
