There has been a lot of expansion to Europe by US Carriers especially DL, CO, US. CO flies to some smaller airports and now U.S to likes of LIS, MXP,ARN and of course DL is taking a big gamble by adding lots more intl travel.
What Coutries/Airports will be next to see new American carrier service, Maybe Poland is yet untapped?

It wouldn't suprise me if some day down the line we see a New York area to BSL service. This could potentially be pretty high yield given Novartis and Roche are both beadquartered in the region as well as many other hot shot companies.
that being said... Maybe some more players in Berlin and Helsinki... who knows

We might see some additional flights into airports of "secondary" cities like Nice,Lyon,Venice,Stuttgart or Palermo.
Belgrade could become a potential "target" if JAT does not get planes in due time.
Among "new" airports-so far without any flight to the USA ,I would put Hannover and Nuremberg in Germany( maybe in 2007 ),Basel in Switzerland,
Gothenburg in Sweden,Bucarest in Roumania ,Malaga in Spain and Porto in Portugal.
In North Africa I predict flights from Algeria and Tunis to Canada and /or USA.

Quoting Sunshine79 (Reply 16): With a bit of luck. I'm surprised CO haven't announced this route by now. Unless they are waiting a bit nearer to the first flight so people will remember that the route was announced.
Could well be announced later this year for a May 2007 start
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!
Is there any particular reason that they can not get a good slot? I would think with Austrian being a *alliance member they would like to have a codeshare to add more capacity, and thus would help with the slotting, but admittedly I donï¿½t know anything about how they are assigned in Austria

Quoting EIRules (Reply 20): I think CO EWR-ORK could soon be on the cards. After that UA SFO-DUB or IAD-DUB
Im not so sure about UA. I think they will enter Ireland but not while the SNN stopover remains. The same goes for CO. It hardly makes much sense doing A EWR-SNN-ORK-EWR run. I think EI might try A ORK-JFK say 2 or 3 per week flight when open skies starts.

Yeah but laster this year CO will start a second daily DUB flight from EWR, one direct and one a triangle route through SNN. Why not in that case have 2 daily DUB direct routes, a SNN-EWR route and a ORK-SNN-EWR flight
Next Flights: EI DUB-LHR A320, BA LHR-SFO B744, UA SFO-LAS A320, BA LAS-LHR B744, EI LHR-DUB A320
25 MD90fan: With A33X's?!? lol Isnt that kinda too much for the market? Can a A32X make that? My guesses NW DTW-MAN CO EWR-PRG EWR-NCL EWR-BFS DL JFK-LED JFK-WAW
26 AirafriqueDKR: Don't know if it's been discussed already but CO is starting EWR-BCN on 17may.
27 VORFMD: yes but OS does not have any influence on Slots in VIE for other Carriers. However, VIE Airport is very interested in new US links, so maybe they wil
28 BY738: CO will see the provisonal AA loads and ,like AA think twice. High fuel prices or not.
