Any New Airlines/Flights At Dfw?

Thu May 09, 2002 6:58 am

I heard a rumor that QANTAS might be starting DFW-AKL-SYD when they get their 744ER, is this true? Im assuming it will be a code share flight with AA. Other than that, do you think we will see any new flights or airlines here at DFW? I wonder if international traffic will pick up once the International Terminal is completed.

I am 90% sure the Qantas rumor is true, but I cannot make any promises though.

Most of the flights that I know of have been added by American. Some notable additions are:
1 new daily to YUL(total-2)
1 new 5x weekly to NRT(total-2 for 5days out of 7)
1 new 3-5x weekly to LGW(total back up to 2 for some days. I am not sure what the frequency is though, I do know that there will be another LGW AA flight).

I have also heard that National and possibly even Frontier are adding additional services from DFW to LAS and DEN respectively. However, I cannot confirm this.

The airport's website seems to be a little out of date when it comes to news, but for more information, go to http://www.dfwairport.com.

Qantas would be nice. That would be service to 5 continents out of DFW. Maybe that new international terminal can attract some carriers. Now, we just need to get Air France back in here.

Blink, you are right. According to National's website, a 4th daily flight from DFW to LAS starts May 23rd.

Take Care,

What do you think Delta's plans are at DFW? It seems like they are becoming less and less of a force. I would like to see some international Delta flights out of DFW, and have some bigger aircraft in and out. I also halfway expect Swiss Airlines to start up DFW runs, since they do (at least I think they still do) codeshare with AA. AA currently has a 767-300 on the DFW-ZRH run, and used to have a 777 on it last winter.

BTW, does Japan Airlines still fly into DFW? What aircraft? MD-11?

Only JAL codeshare services into DFW.

The only plan DL has for DFW is more RJ's. DFW-MAF and DFW-HSV start next month with ASA CRJ's.

US Airways will be adding an additional daily (either 4 to 5 or 3 to 4) to Philadelphia in the next month or so.
