Add US PHL-Asia........Did UA ever announce LAX-GRU in 2001 or so?

I am sure there must have been quite a few after 9/11.

IN 1978 NW announced MSP-PIA-ATL-MIA but never flew it

CO did purchase Eastern's LGA slots after their demise and flew nonstop from LGA to ATL, BUF, DTW, BDA, FLL, RSW, SRQ, MIA, MSY, PBI, MCO, TPA from '91-'92. They did operate those flights.

They were flying some ERJs from LGA to GSO, GSP etc. but that was when the DOT dropped the slot rules, the DOT then had a slot auction which CO lost those slots and thus dropped the routes.

BD applied to start MAN-MSP I think in 2000 but like AM applied to serve many cities in the U.S. but never served them.

An international carrier was going to start service to MSP in fall 2008 but for some odd reason was never announced.

AM applied for MEX-MSP but of course like many other cities never started service to.

These routes weren't actually announced but there was many talk in the 1990s and 2000s of BA starting LHR-MSP (but couldn't because of Bermuda II) and LH starting FRA-MSP (went to PDX instead).

I think they did....

UA flew LAX-GRU briefly in the early 90s. Perhaps you're thinking of the application they submitted to the DOT requesting rights for LAX-EZE? Those rights went to DL for ATL-EZE and CO EWR-EZE. DL started the route but CO did not due to the softening of the Argentine economy at that time and the rights eventually went to AA for DFW-EZE.

TWA, after suspending service from JFK to FRA in january1997 actually had plans in late 2000/early 2001 to return to FRA from STL. They even wanted to make it flight TW740/741 the flight number it was (from JFK) but this of course never materialized... and TWA was bought out by AA... the rest is history!

Ones I can think of is AA were going to start JFK-NCL never did. in 2001 QF were going to add a ORD tag on to their QF93/94 MEL-LAX flight but never did. in 2004 DJ were going to start PER-KGI which got cancelled before the first flight. more recently GA were going to restart DPS-BNE in December but cancelled due to poor bookings.
