From MIA, MIA-BRU, which should be coming within a year, MIA-NRT non-stop (currently one-stop on AA), but, most importnatly, MIA-TLV non-stop (currently one-stop on LY). And how about MIA-BHM (Birmingham, Alabama).

Kansas City (MCI) needs non-stops to Miami. American should launch them, I'm sure they'd be profitable, Southwest and Delta Express must be making a fortune on KC-Florida flights, American needs some non-stops to compete! I like Delta and Southwest better, but I just think MIA non-stops are needed here. Just my 2 cents.

JFK - PSE
JFK or EWR to YYC
Any NYC airport to Havana (for more reasons than one!)
JFK or EWR to BEG (will probably happen again)
NYC - AUS (don't know if this is a logical choice but Austin is growing)
Perhaps an RJ LGA - TYS ? Good way to get to Dollywood.
(Note to self, *Why* doesn't Gordon Bethune return my calls?)
I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.

Well since I love LAX...don't know if these routes would make money though....
UA LAX-EZE: Although the Argentinian economy is bad and demand may not be that high, I think there is a need for a route since AR has pulled out. LAX I think would be a good connection point for travelers from Asia to EZE.

Csavel, there are numerous flights operated daily between New York City, as well as Miami, to Cuba. Out of MIA, for example, United, American, Mexicana, Falcon, and Continental all fly to Havana (CO is twice daily, not sure about the rest). American also flies to Santiago de Cuba and Falcon flies also to Camaguay. Out of JFK, I think it is American operating the Havana flights. Of course, scheduled flights cannot be operated between the US and Cuba, but charters can, so while all these flights between NYC/Miami and Cuba are scheduled, they are charters.

Yes, they are regularly scheduled charters (at least the ones on MIA-HAV and JFK-HAV; don't know about flights to Santiago de Cuba, Cienfuegos, and Camaguey), in fact, Continentel's two daily MIA-HAV flights don't even have a charter flight number. Regularly scheduled flights won't come for a while.

Stockholm has very few routes flying to Asia
Stockholm ARN to YYZ and SIN and Japan
Copenhagen CPN to SFO or LAX
It would be great to see Air Canada flying into Arlanda, I especially like its Airbus 340.

Iberia tried LAX-MAD and it was not very succsesful. A large percent of the traffic between the US and Spain comes from Miami and New York City.
Skychuck, I wouldn't look for AA to start many international services out of STL, aside from the "BIG THREE" (LGW, CDG, and FRA; I know they have LGW, I think they have CDG). The NRT route authoirty, if ever used, would more likely be moved to DFW, ORD, MIA, JFK, or maybe BOS.

MAH4546, good point but also Iberia flew this route a few years back, when maybe demand wasn't that high. While LAX-MAD will never generate the traffic like MIA-MAD, I think the route could be successful with the right type of aircraft. Didn't Iberia use a 747 on the route? If so, then probably there was overcapacity. But with a airplane like the A340 or 767/777, operated maybe 3-4 times a week, I think the flight would be successful.

Despite the fact that Spain is one of the world's three most visited countries (along with France and the US), the Spain-US market seems to rely mostly on business, friends visiting family, etc., and, of course, connections between Iberia's MIA and MAD hubs. The reason I heard for IB ending MAD-LAX was that the Spanish population in Southern California was mostly Mexican, and had little intrest in traveling to Spain. Though, maybe your right, maybe three daily A343 flights could work.

From Detroit we need:
***These are current routes that need big upgrades:
DTW-CDG(NW DC-10's are flying packed daily, we need AF!)
DTW-LHR(BA has already tried to get a second daily flight)
DTW-NRT(Once again, packed 744's daily)
DTW-AMS(5 daily flights, and I think NW/KLM wants to add flights when the New Terminal opens.
Also with the 757ERX:
