Venezuela, as far as those UA flights go, I doubt it. UA isn't really interested in making DEN an international gateway as they already have one on the east and one/two west coast, and a fair number of international flights from Chicago. They even pulled off the FRA route awhile back and let LH take it, which undoubtedly did well considering LH's success on the route, that basically shows their disinterest in international services from DEN. Even though I don't think UA will show up on those routes, I do think its a possibility that AF may show up on the DEN-CDG route at some point in time in the next 5 or so years. THe other routes are somewhat wishful thinking, as HKG and NRT are a bit off in the future. I could be wrong however, DEN has proved to be a stronger market than anyone of us had ever thought it could be.

Ven...United to NRT,maybe with All Nippon. DEN to NRT/HKG, there is easy feed thru SFO.CSS, you are dreaming. Regards to AF to Paris, I think SEA will be there next US destination. United, once again like ASIA, feed into ORD and IAD, that what they are there for!

Venezuala747, since I too live in Denver it would be nice to have these flights. This might help about CDG. A few years ago the Webb administration was offering money to either United or Air France for a direct service to Paris, but I guess neither carrier wanted to do it. Also on the flights to Asia, UA does want to build up its hubs in SFO, LA, and SEA. So I agree with you that these flights would make where we live a bigger city in the country.
Now my other question about DIA is will Southwest ever come here? From what I have heard, the reason they don't fly here is because of the landing cost, but I am wondering if Southwest did come here, could they beat out Frontier on some routes?
