(and certainly Chicago is one of the top urban destinations in the US for Europeans; I wouldn't be surprised if it is second to NYC
|Quoting simairlinenet (Reply 5):|
Is it? I read an article in the Chicago Herald-Tribune right before the NATO summit earlier this year talking about the city's attempt to boost international tourists, which were punching well below the city's weight. While it didn't break out inbound tourism by region, I'd expect Europeans to be the leading origin.
I'd expect Washington or possibly Miami to be second for European tourists.

I don't think it would fly at DFW. Icelandair is more of a backpackers airline and DFW isn't really a European backpacker destination nor is there a lot of tourism. It's a large international business market mostly.

The reason FI does not serve ORD any longer? Truth? They hired a marketing firm who told them there was no growth potential from ORD. Because every flight every day was full....... so they pulled out ........ don't get me started.

I don't really know, but I would say that Chicago is on the top-place-to-visit-when-in-the-US after NYC for the average European.
