AA still serve ORD-FCO during the summer.
UA is the 3rd player on the route with AZ flying all year-round.

AA could swop ORD-FCO with DFW-FCO.

I dont think DFW-FCO would work. Its too far south and west for connections and there isnt much local traffic. MIA-FCO would work better because there is a local market. Still sucks for connections.

You do know that AA operates flight 88 daily from ORD to BRU?

AA operates JFK-FCO daily and ORD-FCO seasonal during summer.

They could do both, but not both daily. Maybe 4w each.

No way....DFW is not well positioned and O&D isn't as strong as ORD....

Most of the people I work with who have to go to Italy transit in MAD from DFW.

The problem is that there are actually very few places that have high yielding O&D to FCO. MXP is a slightly different story.

The route is seasonal; ends 31 Aug 10.

I think there's probably enough room for three carriers during the summer.

Seeing that AA and UA only operate this route during the summer. I think there is room for three carriers. Alitalia is the only one with year round ORD-FCO service.

AZ flying all year-round.

By the way, in one of the summer OAGs, AZ's ORD-FCO flight was listed as a 764 but with a DL codeshare. What's the story with that? Was it a typo?

I believe it's left-over from the time that AZ had two different 763 configuration, and they coded one of them as "764" even though it's really a 767-300ER. AZ has no 767-400s, only 763s.

Yes 904/905 was LAX-FRA, and no its not returning.

SFO gets its 2nd FRA flight back and another returning flight is DEN-LHR restarting March 28th.
