One of my collegues (I think his name is Eep or Eepie) told me that Emirates is going to fly DXB > AMS > ORD and back with a T7! Also I believe that TNT will expand in AMS.

EK wants to fly to ORD, but AMS is one of the stopover options as well as DUS, so I guess it will be DUS.............  Sad It's about time they came to AMS. That would be a nice topic wouldn't it. Why no EK flights to AMS ?  Confused

Maybe KLM lobbying AMS against EK, and blocking EK out of AMS may have something to do with it?

It's a conflict that has been going on for years. The sum was, IIRC, that AMS is charging through-the-roof fees. In part because of KL pressure, in part because they're not willing to play on EK's terms, like all those German airports.

Rumor is out that Tarom Romanian is planing a comeback @ Schiphol next summer, perhaps using one of its two brand spanking new Airbus 318 - scheduled for delivery this November. Since KLM is currently flying three dailies between OTP and AMS, Tarom may consider Timisoara to Amsterdam as a viable alternate route.

I thought EK would rather fly DXB - ORD nonstop.

I was wondering. Why are airliners, such as, Emirates, Air India, jet Airways, Etihad, Saudia, South African, Thai, Qantas, All Nippon, Asiana, American Airlines etc etc, not have passengersflights to Schiphol. Is there al slot problem or is the KLM the one who blocks them. Amsterdam Airport is one of the biggest airports in Europe and some of these airliners prefer Brussels the last months. Is that something to do that brussels is cheaper.

Thanks

Well, there is also the possibility of EK flying to ORD through either DUS or HAM. AMS is probably unlikely at the moment.

I see CTU has gotten an upgrade in frequency. How's the flight doing in terms of profitability?

I just started a thread about TG's plans to start nonstop flight to AMS with the A346 which was rumoured for March 2007. What is the latest news on this?

I can't answer your question totally, but first of all, KLM cannot block any airline from flying to AMS. An airlines request to fly to AMS is handled independently. Of course there has to be room for slots, when requested.

Keep in mind that AMS is not a strong O/D destination. As you probably know Schiphol is, and is designed as a transfer airport. Many of the airlines you mentioned are not member of SKYteam and have no intention or possibilities to use it as a hub.

Some of the airlines you mentioned used to fly to AMS with low frequencies, such as 2 or 3 times per week. Todays intl. carriers are only interested in daily frequencies and this is not profitable for many.

I also wish AA, Thai, SAA and so on would come to AMS and I don' t understand it all the time, but I think this is part of the reason.

I would disagree on this as even KL doesn't offer daily flights to all its intercontinental flights. Daily frequencies are not common at all with todays airlines. U.S. airlines were known to have a daily frequency policy on their international flights but even those airlines now adapt the frequencies to the market demand. Especially with today's aviation shape and economical shape offering daily frequencies alone would not be a responsible thing to do. Between key cities a daily frequency is more attractive but other than that, it doesn't have to.
