Does anyone know what Piedmont had planned for their European service before the US "merger"? They ordered 12 (I think) 762ER's, had taken delivery of 4 (again, I think) and had started CLT-LGW service prior to the takeover. What other city pairs were planned? Did they plan to buy any more 767's or any other widebodies?

Piedmont began service to Frankfurt and LGW just before they were absorbed by USAir.

I seem to recall that PI was considering service to Paris just prior to the US merger. But, I could be mistaken.

Piedmont never started service to Frankfurt, only London Gatwick was served.
London service opened in June 1987. The takeover by US Air was in August 1989.

I remember Frankfurt appearing as a route in the map in the in-flight magazine. I used to fly Piedmont F.28s from Rochester to New York City a lo9t in the '80s. Maybe the map was simply overoptimistic.
