OK, first about Sabena's and Swissair's North American network development. I think everyone agrees that, given the new code-share agreement with American airlines (also beyond-hub flights), both Sabena and Swissair will concentrate on flying into AA's key cities, e.g. DFW and ORD and MIA. American has minor hubs at BOS, JFK, LAX, RDU and SJU.
Furthermore, we should consider the fact that AA has currently only one operation at both Brussels and Zurich airports, e.g. a BRU-ORD, ZRH-ORD flight respectively. So, I think we can most likely expect AA te open at least one more own flight to each of those destinations. Remember that, for BRU, AA used to have 3 daily flights (ORD, JFK and DFW) not so long ago.
Talking about the Brussels operation, I still presume that both ATL and CVG will be ckosed by Sabena, although they maybe want to try to keep CVG open (SN543 BRUCVG will then be the flight to catch, as I expect very low load factors). As the code share on Delta's JFK flight will discontinue, I expect AA to reopen its BRUJFK flight using probably the B767-300ER. ORD is no problem, with two daily flights (SN539-540 will become daily). Furthermore, SN will open a MIA flight (as mentionned before), which leaves us with DFW, which could be operated by either SN or AA. Finally, I'd like to mention that the US West Coast is still a big gap in SN's network. Talking about this issue, Paul Reutlinger told me that they are aware of that. However, opening of a West coast operation (presuably LAX, as AA doesn't have too much at SFO) is not a top priority.
Situation at Zurich is somewhat different. As Swissair has already a MIA operation since september 15, I expect this operation to go daily. Also, ORD is no problem with two daily flights (one SR, one AA). Codeshare on DL operations to ATL and CVG will discontinue, and I expect SR also to close its very succesfull ATL operation SR120-121. Swissair will open a second Boston flight next summer, as a result of the replacement of the B747-300 by the A330-200 on the route. New York operations are plenty (3 times from ZRH, daily from GVA and BSL; 3 into JFK, 2 into EWR). So, I expect AA to open a DFW flight, or a JFK flight in which case SR ould have to close one of its operations and operate DFW using its own equipment. SR operations to LAX and SFO (apparantly very succesfull) will, of course continue.
OK, guys, this is my point of view, just mail your reactions, and, Tino, I changed my flight plans, I'm still in London, and I'll be flying to CPT tomorrow (via VIE, for one of the last times fly OS again), and flying back on SN on saturday (CPT-JNB-BRU), arriving there sunday, and monday onto ATL and OMA.
