Don't forget the talk of maybe LAS
also...this has been a persistant rumor. PDX
service to HNL
was a no brainer with the way our 757300 fleet is working out. The right aircraft for the right route. There is always potential for addition Hawaii service out of PDX
to Maui or Kona.
I was surprised a bit about AF
Airlines (Argentina)">SF, I had thought it died. There had been a lot of talk about restarting the AF
Airlines (Argentina)">SF after LA
got the nod, but then it dropped off. Great news for our FA
base out there. If only we could have the DTW
go year round. I know yields can be low on the Hawaii market, but would be nice to have that flight all year.
has the potential to be a mini focus city serving other destinations ... I guess it will be up to the bean counters now.
A new AMS
city is always being kicked around (PHL
used to be served non stop, then we needed the a/c for DTW
service- as little as a year ago there was talk of adding gates in PHL
and that possibly would lead to resumption of nonstop AMS
actually made a few rounds but that would be stepping right into a mess with UA
and would never happen). Deciding on a new non stop AMS
city would be hard...I would certainly love to see PDX
but there would really have to be demand. I certainly think newer service to CDG
will be next (MSP CDG
likely). I think we will be sending cx pax through CDG
depending on where they will continue within Europe.
Look for further expansion by our new codeshare partners Alitalia and AF
into cities like MSP
We need more 747-400's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
