flight has been a surprising success - is it 10 years already?
In the Netherlands and Europe, KL
has done a rather good job of marketing the flight as an easy gateway to the Southeastern US......NW
does have many connection possibilities available via Memphis and passengers do like the idea of a smaller uncrowded airport. (Many Europe originating passengers find airports like Ohare and Atlanta to be overwhelming for connections.)
Its quite amazing that AMS
has survived and does well, while routes like AMS
have been dropped by KL
/NW. I understand that KL
/NW has the MEM
-Europe market all of itself, while there is more competiton at PHL
(from US) and MIA
(from lots of carriers), its still rather interesting.
Can Memphis support other long-haul international flights as suggested by the recent newspaper article....this was discussed recently here at a.net. I dont think so, but then again, I was wrong about Memphis, so time will tell.
