Not that I know of. Kuwait City service to Dulles begins soon though, so that would be one new transatlantic route from IAD.

Right now UA seems content to feed FRA and let LH take care of the pax within the EU from there. Their current expansion plans seem to be mainly Asia, where they have very little domestic competition (mostly NW), as opposed to heavy domestic competition across The Pond.

Along with UA's own routes to LHR, FRA, MUC, CDG, ZRH, AMS and BRU, Star Alliance partners SAS to CPH, Austrian to VIE and Lufthansa to FRA and MUC all more than satisfy UA's and its customers' needs for European destinations from IAD. Maybe Star partners TAP and LOT might consider flights to IAD?

Doubtful. In order for more European airlines within Star to add flights to IAD, UA has to continue building it up as a domestic hub with more frequencies to US markets.

UAL might do better this time around with IAD-Madrid and IAD-Milan/Rome, IAD needs a nonstop route to Madrid and Rome.

They seem to be doing a good job of this as we speak.

I seriously doubt that will happen anytime soon. As was already mentioned, UA pax can connect on LH in MUC and FRA and fly to various cities in Italy.

In addition, like me on Saturday, UA pax can fly US via PHL to MXP, FCO, and VCE (seasonal).
