Why no additional USA connections? It's hard to believe they only fly to JFK. Could LAX or DFW ever work?
I have wondered that for many years. Their strategy is to fly to Asia which is one reason for that and the other one is that they don't have enough planes. It will be interesting to see what they are going to do with the A330 when A350 arrives. I am not expecting Finnair to start new routes to USA, but I would like to see AA
in the winter and ORD
in the summer.
According to Wikipedia Finnair has flown to BOS
could actually work well, because there is no direct flights to LAX
from Nordic countries or Baltic states. The nearest options are Germany and Russia. Why don't start route from HEL
and get the passengers from Baltic states, Russia and Scandinavia?
In 2011 about 70 000 passengers used AA
route, according to Finavia. We have to remember that it was only a seasonal route! New York was third busiest destination outside Europe in 2011.
I would like to see Delta returning to HEL
, but that probably won't happen in the near future.
