In light of the DHL pullout of the United States operations I raise the question; How many other airlines have needed to pullout of the U.S. in order to downsize their respective operations in recent time? My follow up question would be; How many of those airlines have continued international service from their countries around the world?
ex: VARIG (RG)

Biman Bangladesh is another example. They used to fly the DC-10 aircraft to from BRU to JFK until the middle of 2005. They stopped flying to the US probably for two reasons:
-they did not meet the FAA standards
-Jet Airways got the slot in BRU for a India-BRU-JFK network.

For a while SAA was banned to fly to the United States for political reasons during the apartheid era but in 1991 when it was abolished SAA was allowed by the US government to return to the United States.

I'm not sure Malev still flies to the US. Weren't they talking about suspending long haul operations? I don't see them in JFK anymore.

For a few years Tarom stopped flying to the US when they grounded their 2 Airbus A310 aircraft, those returned to service about a year ago.

JR - Aerocalifornia ceased flights to the U.S. if I am not mistaken. I am not sure if they are still flying domestically in Mexico or if they went out of business altogether.


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Iran Air use to fly to the USA prior to 1980. The Tehran-New York City route was inaugurated in 1975, first with Boeing 707s making a stop-over in London Heathrow Airport, and shortly thereafter, the route was converted into a non-stop flight using Boeing 747SP

Iraqi Airways use to fly to New York in the 70's. First with 707's and then 747's until they were grounded by UN sanctions in 1990.

Nigerian Airways flew to the USA at some point as well.

I don't know for sure, but I'd suspect Cubana probably flew to the USA prior to Fidel coming to power?

They were, at least at the end of August. Their flight, using a 767-200, was at the gate next to my Air Berlin flight to DUS from JFK. The flight taxied out in front of us.

What has Indian bilaterals rights with the USA got anything to do with Bangladesh? I suggest you take out a geo-political map and familiarise yourself because there is no better way to offend a Bangladeshi than to refer to him as an Indian!

Did Air Afrique pull out of the US to shore up their operations prior to their demise in 2002, or was it simply a matter of not flying anywhere at all, and therefore stopping flights to JFK?

If I recall correctly, back in the 90s Luxair offered summer-only service to Europe from Newark-Liberty using wet-leased 767s from Citybird Airlines. Some say that their relatively low trans-Atlantic fares supplied many backpackers their first European adventure.

just to tack on to the VARIG example, they have resumed international operations to most of their original South American destinations and i believe although i am not sure they have resumed to serve Europe however effectively remain out of the U.S.
