What Routes Do You THink Airlines Should Start?

Thu Oct 04, 2001 1:17 am

I think that jetBlue should start JFK-AUS service. I also think that CO needs a IAH-GUM flight and a IAH-OGG flight. What routes do you want your favorite airline to start?

I just wish that ANY airline would start service here, at my new home airport of HII. Mesa Air currently has four flights a day, to & from PHX. That's it...no other flights or carriers. The town is really itching for more services. The business is there...folks here want LAS, LAX, SAN and a few others. Any takers?  Wink/being sarcastic Regards.

UAL ORD-MAD or ORD-BCN. They need to compete with IB and AA on this route. Perhaps begin maybe Dulles-Mad or Dulles-BCN, either ones would work. They should operate either 763's or 777's
Twinjets...if one fails, work the other one twice as hard!!!

I would like BA to restart its 777 Gatwick-SJU route and JetBlue to start a JFK-SJU route or a FLL-SJU route.
Also Lacsa not to leave SJU.

767-332ER:
I've flown United and Iberia many times.

Theres is no competition! Iberia is way better than United on International flights. Even domestic flights within Spain is better than domestic UA flights here in the US.

What is Iberia using to ORD now?
Is it DC-10s or A340s?

Both are better than the 777 & 767s.

I wouldn't mind anything new coming to GOT. The best thing would be a transatlantic route to NY, perhaps with CO. But as the time is now, it will probably not happen in the near future.

I think that CX should start 744 service from HKG-IAH and Virgin fly to IAH as well.

Personally I would like to see the following to continue service or give competition to other carriers:

DETLA:
SEA-HNL, OGG or LIH (since they fly 767's to SEA continue onto the Hawaiin islands)
SEA-NRT or KIX (777 service)
SEA-SFO
SEA-CDG (No carrier serves this market)
SEA-LGW (Compete with BA)
SEA-FRA (LH flies from YVR)

United, NWA and AMR need competition on some routes out of SEA. I would like to have Alaska Airlines survive and beat the competition especially UAL since UAL has terrible service, but that is another story.

Just my two cents.....

Hope more international flights will start here in Stockholm. Montreal, Toronto, Seoul would all be nice. Wish that AC will come here.

With Midway no longer flying, I would like to see America West pick up flights between Columbus and Raliegh-Durham. I would also like to see them start flights from Columbus to Kansas City, San Francisco, New Orleans, and Jacksonville. However considering the fact that America West most likely isn't looking at any route expansion, especially from CMH, at the moment, I wouldn't anticipate any of the above happening anytime soon.

I would like to see any new route to ABQ. I heard that we may get Lineas ??? Aztecas to MEX. I would like to see that and these too.

Jet Blue:
ABQ-JFK Continental has a Saturday only flight to EWR, and Southwest has one non-stop to BWI.

United:
ABQ-IAD
ABQ-ORD

Aeromexico:
ABQ-MEX

Alaska Airlines:
ABQ-SEA with a 739

Sun Country:
ABQ-MSP

Midwest Express:
ABQ-MKE

These are all dreams, and probably will never happen, but I can always dream right?

I have also flown both internationally. IB uses their A340's, the DC-10's are gone. I wouldn't say that the A340 is better than the 777!!!! Come on!!!

A US Airways nonstop to NRT would be a nice way to inaugerate the new intl terminal at PHL. Of course, they would first need to find a plane to fly that far (if, f course, they're still in business in the spring)....
