If a carrier has broad route authority (from the "US Points"), what does that mean? Can they fly from as many US cities as they want to the international destination???

I have also seen route authorities that ONLY list the destination country as well (not a specific city). Can that airline fly to ANY city in that country (provided the country approves it)?

After a carrier receives this kind of authority, do they need to put in another request with the exact city???

From the preface to the "U.S. Carrier International Route Authority by Country" published by the DOT:

Route Integration Authority

Under the terms of route integration authority granted to most carriers, carriers have the authority to combine services on their outstanding certificates and exemptions to serve new markets, subject to the condition that they first file notice of such service with the Department and the Department completes any necessary selection procedures before the carrier commences service in the new market. Such authority is not reflected here unless the Department engages in a selection proceeding to award such authority in a limited-entry market.

Authority Granted under Open-Skies Agreements

The United States has concluded Open-Skies Agreements with many countries and some carriers have been awarded the broad route authority available under the provisions of these agreements. This authority to serve broad intermediate and beyond points is limited generally to countries with which the United States has signed open-skies agreements. This authority to third countries is not specified and thus it cannot be reflected here. While our bilateral aviation relations with countries are subject to change, we have listed below the countries where U.S. carriers now hold broad route authority. We note that U.S. carriers have not sought authority to all the approximately 60 countries where the United States has open skies agreements.

[Additional provision for Mexican services]

Consistent with the dormancy provisions in the U.S.-Mexico Agreement, the Mexican authority of all carriers expires on the 90th day after they discontinue service.

Hope this helps.
