Howdy!

Just to start, I am a naturlized Texan, not a native  Smile


Not to copy the Irish at all, but seems Texas is gettin alot of new service here in the next few months.

IAH will soon be recieving Korean Air 74F's starting in two weeks, not to mention the upstart of "Valiant Airways" 747's serving the Halliburton shuttle to Africa. Chautauqua has recently started service Continental Express with CRJ's and ERJ-145's. The rumors about Emirates starting IAH service seem to grow bigger by the day, as is the CO IAH-TLV service.

Into Houston-Hobby, jetBlue will soon be downgrading service to JFK to EMB-190's to use the 320's on longer runs. Hobby's renovation seems about ready to start and the monthly event at the 1940's Terminal Air Museum grow bigger and better every event.

Up the northwestern part of the republic, AMA is seeing upgrades from AE and WN to CRJ700's and 73G's respectively.

Up Dallas ways, AirTran is starting Dallas-Chicago service and AA has announced FF programs with MALEV Hungarian. The Wright Amendmant debate is as hot as ever.

Austin is seeing expansion with new non-stop service to SEA on American mainline.

Will be a busy year here in Texas. The energy market is booming, our economy is booming, and most important of all, the Sooners went home empty handed.

Not to steal a famous a.netter's phrase but,

Hook 'em Horns and dont mess with Texas!

:D



Also, Is AUS becoming a focuspoint for AA (or is SEA one? i am confused)? Or is this just a non hub/spoke route (AUS-SEA). Good news for AUS!  Smile

I thought they were ENDING this service? I know they did DFW-MDW in the past, but thought that they were terminating it now, rather than resuming it.

I live in Alaska now (and like it, don't get me wrong), but Texas will always be home.

Chautauqua has recently started service Continental Express with CRJ's and ERJ-145's. The rumors about Emirates starting IAH service seem to grow bigger by the day, as is the CO IAH-TLV service.

The Korean service has been announced, and some say it's a precursor to scheduled service by KE to IAH. The lure is the CO hub.

Valiant I've heard of, but there has been no definite announcementof a start-up date, and I have trouble believing they're sufficiently capitalized. Emirates won't be seen this year (I doubt they'll make a move) and Air India is another rumor on a slow boil. Continental may add another city in Mexico, but they won't add TLV (the 777 will have better use elsewhere in their system - like IAH-Buenos Aires). Wild cards are Egyptair, TAAG Angola, Virgin Nigeria, Qatar or Etihad and one unnamed low-fare carrier from Mexico. I also keep thinking COPA would be a natural, as would Houston-Madrid, but that's dependent on CO.

As for DFW, Qantas appears to be the next best prospect, although I could see a few additional cargo carriers setting up shop there.

Ahhh a Texas pride thread--I'll be the first to offer an olive branch to the Dallasites on the board and join with talk of DFW  Wink

I just got off of JetBlue 625 JFK-HOU and it was about 75% full. I think that until they really get established in the Houston market a mix of 190s and 320s would probably be best. One thing I noticed was that on their cycling airshow where they list 'Newest additions to the family' they listed Sarasota, Nashville, Cancun, and O'Hare but they did not list Hobby...interesting.

For a SkyTeam partner, Aeromexico is making little of its access to the IAH hub and all that feed traffic that CO generates. Maybe CO is insisting on keeping the Mexico services to itself. But IAH to MTY, GDL, CUN and Leon would seem to be large enough markets for CO to share with AM.

Since they canfly direct to LAS and PHX now, we might get cut off in MAF. They use MAF for a "jumping off" point.

On the other hand, it would be nice to be able to fly MAF-DAL-BNA instead of having to go through HOU.

I was in HOU several times recently. Man, they have put a lot of money in that place! We used to call it "The Dirty Little Airport" but it's really nice now.
