To be honest with you, I think DFW is more likely to see a flight ffrom Central Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc.) then the Middle East, judging by the amount of immigrants from those countries in the DFW metroplex.

I suppose you mean nonstop. After all in the 70s TWA had a daily direct flight from TUS to CAI. Of course it stopped in PHX, JFK and ORY on the way.
Just had to kid a bit here. Nonstop though? I don't imagine there is enough traffic on any of these routes to support any aircraft. If it ever were to happen I'd expect to see an A340 or 777 on the route(s), at least initially.
