Quoting STT757 (Reply 7): 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.
But it was like right before 9/11 with regional jets..even to Florida

AA JFK-NCL, DL ATL-FRA-DEL, OA ATH-HKG. Can't think of any others right now.
Quoting USAirALB (Reply 4): Quoting Exaauadl (Reply 2):
Did UA ever announce LAX-GRU in 2001 or so?
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.
