Currently, all AI flights to Canada and the United States stop in Europe. According to various rumors, AI wants to add more American cities, such as IAD, IAH, and SFO, to its network. If all these rumors are true, maybe AI flights to IAH or SFO would stop in FCO. After all, there are no direct flights between SFO and IAH and Italy. Of course, all of this assumes that AI can obtain fifth freedom rights from FCO to these cities.

Just as for ET, with its new ADD-FCO-IAD service...
Anyway, even if it was an India/Italy/India flight it wouldn't have any load factor problems, considering the huge Indian community spread throughout our country. And AI would compete with AZ (which already flies to DEL from MXP) on the Italian market.
