Hi, I have been think about US airlines and how some US airlines focus on different parts of the world. But will there be more expansion of destinations of the variety of US airlines. For example,


United~ Europe, Asia, Australia
AA~ all big major cities
US Airways~ Europe, Caribbean, ?Asia?
Continental~ Europe, Asia, Caribbean
Northwest~ Europe, Asia
Delta~ South America, Europe, Asia, Africa (only US airline that flys the continent I think)

But I was wondering, is there going to be any expansion? I thought I heard that AA was going to start flying to CPT, but I don't know if that was true. And what about Australia, any Delta or American trying to start that route up? And Chile and Argentina. And any others that I might of now said.

Thanks

Quoting Aruba (Thread starter):
United~ Europe, Asia, Australia
AA~ all big major cities
US Airways~ Europe, Caribbean, ?Asia?
Continental~ Europe, Asia, Caribbean
Northwest~ Europe, Asia
Delta~ South America, Europe, Asia, Africa (only US airline that flys the continent I think)

In order of current focus, I'd say:

American: Latin America, Caribbean, London
US Air: Caribbean, Europe
Continental: Europe, Latin America, Caribbean
Northwest: Asia, Amsterdam
Delta: Europe, Caribbean, Latin America
United: Asia, ??

AA has two destinations in Asia. NRT and DEL are pretty sparse coverage compared to UA and NW.

DL has even less service to Asia. In addition to India, they only have a single flight to NRT.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

United will continue to focus on Pacific routes and leave further European destinations to its partner Lufthansa.

As for African destinations, Delta will be the airline to Africa for the continued future - the JFK hub is what is making that happen. I think only EWR or maybe IAD could support flights to Africa such as DL is already doing. On the other hand, setting up a transit hub at DKR allows different flights to connect to their next flight - JNB-DKR-ATL and CPT-DKR-JFK, as well as the possible NBO-DKR-USA flight can have passengers choose their USA point of entry.

AA will continue to expand in Latin America.

AA could do it from MIA. Good O&D, great connections.

DL serves NRT, ICN, BOM, PVG (Starting 3/30). If the Middle East is included (which is Asia after all) DL also serves TLV, DXB, and AMM (starting in June).

US Air: Caribbean, Europe

I'm not so sure we won't see US trying some South America flying once they get some 332s; they've applied for BOG (which a narrowbody can and will do), and CLT could probably support EZE, LIM, and a Brazil flight or two if they did it right (obviously this assumes liberalization of some bilaterals...).

Doubt it. There needs to be at least some sort of O&D. Atlanta at least as some. Charlotte is next to zero (CLT-BOG daily O&D, for example, is 1.7 passengers).

We're talking 5-10 years down the road, though, when Charlotte will probably be half the size Atlanta is now or so. With the sort of growth Charlotte is seeing, I think a handful of South America flights might work; think UA at IAD, not DL at ATL or AA at MIA.

South Asia: BOM
Southwest Asia: TLV, DXB, AMM (June 6th)
Africa: CAI (June 5th), ACC, NBO (Dec. 8th), LOS, DKR, CPT (June 4th), JNB

Someone needs to do some research before making such statements.  embarrassed

Rumor has it that CO wants to go into JNB out of EWR and LOS+DXB out of IAH and they also want to go into Australia. I can see them annoucing these cities once they start taking delivery of there 777 and 787 next year or the year after.

I think more US airline should fly to Africa. There are like no airlines but DL. What about any flights out of Calinfornia to Africa? Could an aircraft even do that?

Why would any airline even want to that? Probably the same demand as the Arctic to Antarctic.
