It might work.
What I can't believe is that we don't have a service from ARN to California. Outside Stockholm we have the most expansive IT area (after Silicon Valley) in the world. So perhaps a 767 from ARN to SFO?

737 or 733 service on Southwest Airlines from ROC to LAS, PHX, or BWI
A320 flight on NWA from ROC to DTW and continuing on to LAX or whereever, since UAL is starting an A319 flight next month from ROC to ORD that will continue on to LAX, as well as some other Airbus flights to various destinations through either ORD or IAD. In the meantime, US Air has already begun bringing Airbus jets into ROC.
Possibly a 757 flight on US Airways to their hubs or whereever; US probably would be able to sustain one since it is the dominant carrier at ROC.

ZRH - SYD with a Swissair MD11 (better yet, an A340-600!! But I have to wait a few more years for that one!!). I finally want a direct flight (I don't know if the MD11 will make it that far??) or at least just one stop WITHOUT having to switch planes in SIN and having to fly code-share from there with Qantas!
Won't happen... there's no market for expansion in Europe the way there is in Asia or Latin America. And Europe is the domain of Delta, for the most part.
I'd like to see Delta start serving CDG from SFO, on Delta equipment... probably the 777, if it ever happened. I'd also like to see Delta serve LHR... from any city, ATL, JFK, not necessarily SFO. it will be a great day when we get rid of the one gaping hole in our otherwise superb European network.
It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.

Well I have two home airports!
From my hometown of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada (YMM) i'd like to see them eventually introduce service to YVR nonstop. There probably isn't enough traffic for it yet, but wait a few years and we'll see For now, WJ will be operating once daily direct to YVR via YYC.
From Edmonton, Alberta, where I live 8 months out of the year, there are a couple of services i'd like to see. They could use a non-stop or two to Lethbridge (YQL), in the southern part of the province. It would only take about 65 minutes on a DH8, and would be a lot quicker than connecting through YYC and wasting 40 minutes to a hour or longer! Also, a nonstop to YHZ (Halifax, Nova Scotia) with continuing service to YYT (St. John's, Newfoundland) would benefit the huge number of maritimers living in Alberta. I'd also like to see AA return its YEG-YYC-DFW service which was cut a few years ago, as well as DL and its YEG-SLC or YEG-YYC-SLC service.

I can guarantee that this won't happen from the booming town of CAE, but I would love to see DL fly to SYD and/or MEL from the US. SFO, LAX, or something like that seems the most likely, but would be in direct competition with UA. I just wanted to see that happen so I could use some of these FF miles to get there. That seems to be the single biggest gaping hole in DLs routes and alliance, no way to get to Australia on them or through them.
Also, I would love to see LHR opened up to DL.
