US in a very sad financial health so w
rest only CO and AA
CO have a lot of routes to Europe
AA definily YES
they a very strong in LHR , AA BA strong in the UK market but in continental Europe the hub of Brussels seems to be a key market .
Air Belgium (ridiculous name) can transport for AA people across Europe an d why not to Africa.
AA brings people from AA gateway ( MIA ORD DFW ) to BRU and then to the rest of Europe.
AA BA is for the UK market.
AA "SN light version" for the rest of Europe.
The only problem since 11th september, AA have no $ for create a AA Europe.
But for the future of Oneworld , they needs BRussels Airport and his brand new terminal pier A due to open in may 2002.
THis pier will be the home of AA Europe and the hub of Oneworld in Continental Europe.
