Re: Air France Us expansion

Now that it's official you can start listing other destinations One sidelight: with the DL pilots already saying there is an "imbalance" between DL-metal and AF/KL/VS-metal flights, I wonder if Delta will be announcing some new European route... or maybe taking-over a current AF flight......

I hope this is true. SkyTeam has a big hole at DFW; I for one am baffled at the lack of AF/KL. Yes, it is a large AA megahub, but ATL (which is a smaller market) can make both BA and LH work despite the humongous DL hub, and BA/AF/KL can make in-state rival IAH work despite the UA hub (yes, I know t...
