Wouldn't Germany be considered "central Europe" also? If so, then a host of US airlines fly into Frankfurt (FRA). Munich is served by UA and DL, and maybe others.

I would consider Austria and Switzerland "central Europe" also, and doesn't DL and AA serve ZRH or Geneva? How about Vienna?

Doesn't DL fly JFK-IST (Istanbul)? That or ATL-IST I think. I don't think that any US carriers fly to Prague or Budapest or any other cities in that region or further east. Most of those cities aren't large enough and/or plugged into the western economy enough to warrant these routes, I wouldn't think.

Munich is served by UA, DL, and US. (That I'm aware of)
Zurich is served by DL, AA, and CO.
Geneva is only served by CO.

Delta does have JFK-IST service although not daily.


Delta also is the only US carrier to have service to SVO.

Hope That Helps!!

Check this out, there are rumors that Delta could start a flight from somewhere in the US (ATL, JFK) to Bucharest Otopeni International (BUH):

Delta doesn't fly to Vienna anymore.
They stopped the service in 1996 I think.

DL at least had service to VIE in 1999; I flew there from ATL on a DL 767 in January of 1999.

DL used to fly to WAW in the mid-to-late 90s. And I've seen photos of a UA744 in Krakow...not sure if it's regularly scheduled service, seasonal, or a charter??

Exactly on the October the 27th

There are two airports in Bucharest. BUH stands for Bucharest Metropolitan Area. OTP is Bucharest Otopeni International while BBU is Bucharest Baneasa City Airport. Distance between the two is 20 min drive although Baneasa is only 15 min drive to downtown Bucharest. Some domestic routes, VIP flights, LCC, and charters are operated out of Baneasa BBU.

Hi,

I Love ORD,the UA 744 you saw in Krakow (Balice) was used to transport news reporters to Krakow during pres.Bush's visit there in May of this year, so it was a charter, although ELAL often flies their 744's into Krakow and Warsaw, for obvious reasons.

Second of all, as of now, there are no American air carriers in Central/Eastern Europe. DL did serve Warsaw in mid 1990's, my mom flew with them once, LOT had a code share with Americans, as well as many other airlines in the region. United will start services to Poland in the time coming due to their new codeshare with PLL LOT, perhaps there will even be a service to Krakow, Warsaw is a sure bet.
