No, I dont think any of those would make much money in DFW
Basically, given connections and O&D DFW
can support between 7-9 flights a day to Europe depending on the season. Bear in mind, that includes connections on the DFW end.
The local markets which it would have no problem supporting with some connections on the Europe end and none on the DFW
end are limited to London, Paris, and Frankfurt. By the time you throw in connections on the DFW
end, One World markets like Madrid become viable. By the time you throw in India, that adds for more Y capacity to LHR
. The DFW
-India market is huge, but not very high yielding. For that, we have EK
coming in Feb.
The local markets of the airlines mention wouldnt be able to support a flight to DFW
is a OneWorld hub, and there is some tech/telecom traffic, but nowhere near enough for a flight here. AZ
would be a nonstarter as the local market isnt big and there are no alliance connections. ZRH
is a very small local market from DFW
and wouldnt be able to make it work.
Im a huge DFW
fan, but I try to look at things realistically. Realistically, as long as DFW
has direct flights to London, Paris, and Frankfurt, and at least 5 flights a day to Europe, the local market (O&D) is pretty well covered.[Edited 2011-12-11 21:12:02]
