Off the top of my head, only two transatlantic routes come to mind that US applied for and didn't get: BOS-CDG in 1995-96 (which went to AA for BOS-ORY), and PHL-MXP in 1998-99 (which went to DL for ATL-FCO).
Well, and LHR-BOS/CLT/PHL/PIT.
I remember those as well, particularly PHL
in 1999. It was mentioned in the 1998 annual report after the glossy sections. The LHR
is technically still being looked at, all it needs is for Bermuda II
to be repealed. Longshot I know, but still.
What about CLT
-Latin American routes. During the FLL
build-up in 2004-05, you mentioned a CLT
study in 1998, were there any others? As much as I hate Wolf for trying to sell off US to UA
in 2000-01, I have to give him and his team credit for laying the foundation for their Star Alliance entry and the merger with HP
. I feel US' service is better than it's ever been and can get even better with HP
's proactive, pro-employee management behind it.
