US Airways was rumored to be in negotions with Domodedovo for a 76 on PHL-DME. No news of what happened there.
Continental has long held rights on EWR-DME, and keeps on extending their rights based on lack of equipment. When they get the 787s, they're also a possibility.
Transaero is entering the US market with DME-JFK and MIA. Can't wait to see some more competition in the Russia market.

Quoting Nomadic (Reply 2): IIRC TWA was given both Moscow & Saint Petersburg but only operated SVO briefly, with a 727-200. ( From FRA or BRU? or possibly another city)
Good Memory Nomadic!
JFK-BRU-SVO, Flight 768... Originated in JFK with L1011 equipment, change of plane in BRU to 727-231A. One daily roundtrip BRU-SVO-BRU. Local traffic rights as well as the connecting passengers from Kennedy.
Unfortunately the route was very short lived. It began in March 1992, lasted only for the summer season and was gone by winter.
