Re: AA markets not served from DFW

I would love to see AA fly SYR-DFW, UA SYR-IAH, and DL SYR-MSP. I realize that DEN, SLC, LAX and SFO would never happen. DL does fly SYR-MSP, every day, and on mainline during peak traffic periods. Never say never re: SYR-DEN, though - it's a perfect E75 route. I think it'll happen within the next ...
