I'd love to see it, but I haven't heard anything about this happening. If you do have confirmation of this, please provide it -- I might have to take a trip out to DFW to see it; I don't think we've seen a scheduled passenger 747 here in at least 3 years.

The last time I actually saw a KE 744 at DFW was in 2005 but I'm sure it went on a little while after that... Didn't KE just get 77Ws? Would they maybe see those instead of 744s?
Also, it was being mentioned for the longest time but is their any thought by QF to flying the A380 nonstop to DFW from Australia? It's been years since I've heard anything...
I also remember hearing on here awhile ago that one of the japanese carriers (ANA or JL) were going to start either DFW or IAH... Any updates on this?

Okay, I checked out the KE schds for summer, and I'm wrong about the 744. I want to say perhaps one of the 4 long haul international carriers at DFW did, or will upgrade for a short while to a 744. But, it's always been a fantasy of mine, so perhaps I made it up.
On a side note, I don't remember when the last KE 744 flight was, but I did fly on it in 2001 when it at the ATL-DFW-ICN leg. It was packed. Somehow, even without the DL presence, they make it work as a stand alone now.
AA DFW-CDG goes 777 this summer
AA DFW-MAD goes 777 this summer
It looks like AA DFW-ZRH has been axed.
I doubt we will see the A380 at DFW. Ideally, it would make logistical sense to have a lot of their traffic going to the east coast hub through DFW, but the fact that they will be reducing the 744 flight LAX-JFK down to 5x weekly with an A332 makes me think their ain't too much for them far east. But, then again, I could be wrong.

On the IAH front, the only rumor that I remember hearing is that ANA is looking at IAH in lieu of CO joining Star. SQ also increased to 5 flights weekly if I'm not mistaken. What's the latest on Terminal B reconstruction?

Youre both about to eat your words!
KE will be flying the 744 to DFW as of August 3.

Been gone for a long time. At one time that was the highest yielding flight in AA's entire network. When the codeshare died, the flight died with it.
However, DFW-MAD has in effect replaced it as IB and AA are now huge partners. This flight has exceeded AA's expectations on all fronts. When ATI hits, look for IB to be flying this with a larger 2-class aircraft.
