Sucks that IAH has flights to both SYD and AKL. Just goes to show how timid AA/QF are. Even with them being both OW, new planned flights from DFW to MEL or BNE or AKL are languishing. And look how brave UA is to go to a OW fortress in SYD. Sheesh. Once again IAH owns DFW. Internationally IAH is alw...Jump to post
How about ORD-LIM? I don't see this happening for a while but once ORD-BOG starts on AV and gets settled in... Im curious to know what it adds. Its not a big local market and even with the AV/UA deal, LIM doesnt offer a whole bunch that BOG doesnt. IAD-LIM is literally almost 5x larger than ORD-IAD...Jump to post
Well in terms of Ethiopian American population, the highest concentrations are in DC, LA, Atlanta, Seattle, and Dallas. The first 2 are advantageous to ET as they are Star hubs. ET's missing link is a Central U.S. route which I personally think is better achieved by Chicago due to its closer distan...Jump to post
True, the bulk of Ethiopian-Americans are in the DC and New York metro areas. Wouldn't ORD would seem to be a better place for connection feeder traffic, for example to the Ethiopian and Somali communities in Minneapolis, or even places like metro Toronto? (I know they already fly to YYZ but flight...Jump to post
Neither Houston or Chicago have sizable Ethiopian communities or business ties to ADD themselves so this will live and die by connections. Houston has a lot of oil traffic to Africa, but its mainly to Nigeria not so much Ethiopia. Based on that, I would think Chicago would be the best option because...Jump to post
In this, and countless other threads I've read, when there is new service to the Bay area, you can count on comments about the flight being fueled by the tech industry. And when there are flights to Detroit people talk about automotive, when there are flights to NYC there is talk about financial se...Jump to post
I just looked around to find the answer. Great news that IAH is the future destination!!! Finally to go back to Europe I can try to fly the A380 Lufthansa from IAH to FRA!!!!!

Another thing I am keeping my eyes on has to do with domestic operations. Something that grinds my gears has to do with the use of E145's to markets like IND, CMH, CLE, etc. What Im looking for UA to do is perhaps reduce the frequency and up the equipment. Instead of flying 5X daily on a route like...Jump to post
Delta and AA seem to be stagnant in Houston. Spirit and Frontier seem utilize the 321 regularly here though. That seems to make sense, as right now, the locals are looking for discounts. But we may see more business travel if WTI remains as high as it is... Are they? I mean I guess everyone is tech...Jump to post
GDL, BJX, MID, MTY and QRO. All on Ejets IIRC. FWIW Delta is using AM to outsource a lot of flying to places like GDL, BJX and MTY. GDL for example is about to be down to ATL only. Delta pulled completely out of BJX and IIRC MTY is just ATL and DTW. Hope DALPA is paying attention...... Not sure I a...Jump to post

2017 was a pretty good year. Aeromexico and Jetblue adds were significant. There's a lot more competition to major domestic markets than there was 3 or so years ago. I really wish someone would come in and bust up the Skyteam near-monopoly TATL. For Western Europe you have two frequencies per day o...Jump to post
To me Houston-Rome is very likely to happen once (and in case that) LH takes over AZ this year. A good route for a S19 launch. I dont think so at all. LH has LX and SN in their group. If LH was interested in adding IAH from another market, they would have done it by now. FWIW, Continental was plann...Jump to post
3.5 flights/day? Delta gutted there plans for 1+ flights a day when AS cut Jan-Mar Service! I haven't done full research, but I think there is seasonal variation in the route.

It would be interesting to see how big CLT gets in the coming years in comparison to DFW . DFW is located in the 4th largest metro area in the U.S. with a population of 7.2 million. It’s also the second fastest growing metro after Houston., adding well over 100,000 people per year. Charlotte is muc...Jump to post
Speaking joint ventures, I am really looking forward to seeing what happens with AV and Houston in the coming year. It would be awesome for them to link IAH to BOG on their on metal to feed connections into deep South America. It's possible UA might give up 1 of their 2x daily flights to BOG if AV ...Jump to post
Looks like the discussion is off to a good start. In reading through the comments Ill add my responses below: IAH-ANC is coming back for about 10 weeks in the summer. WN won't be going back to IAH.

Honestly, I think MUC has a ton of O&D. Probably a lot more so than FRA. FRA is huge for connecting flights to elsewhere in Europe via Lufthansa. FRA does seem to have higher business O&D though. This is the economic center of Germany. But MUC remains the cultural capitol, and gateway to Ba...Jump to post

I honestly think IAH-BRU or IAH-ZRH is a better fit than IAH-MUC. Reason being is that IAH-MUC is a small local market like the other two, but MUC doesnt really offer any destinations that FRA doesnt. ZRH and especially BRU have a bunch of destinations than FRA and MUC dont have.Jump to post

After all, CLT is not a very strong O&D market compared to the other AA hubs. AA has publicly stated that CLT is its most profitable hub Indeed it is because domestic traffic is more profitable than international traffic right now. The same reason UA has publicly stated DEN is their most profit...Jump to post
But perhaps CM B737-700/800 PTY-PHX thrice weekly could work and surely CM has been studying PHX for quite some time now. Maybe, just maybe that would work if PHX were still a Star Alliance hub.

Well EK's not going to come, they have a deal with JetBlue to route DTW passengers via BOS.

ATL-India and DTW-India is around the same size I think.

In 2013, Atlanta had 88,201 Indians and Detroit had 74,037. Since 2013, Atlanta gained 27,871 Indians and Detroit gained 10,477.

I think DTW-India could exist in the future, but not based on O&D alone.
