What Non-stop Route Do You Need The Most?

Tue Jul 31, 2001 12:46 am

I have a question...

What non-stop route do you need or want the most?

I really want a non-stop route between Mexico City (MEX) & Caracas (CCS) because all flights stop in Panama City (PTY) or you have to connect... .

Duesseldorf, Germany to Palma de Mallorca, Spain!
Every year million of tourists at Balneario 6 and El Arenal...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Just A Joke...

I think the most important routes are the business routes between following cities: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Honk Kong, Singapore and Tokyo...

BCN-SSA

Actually don't mind if it is non-stop or not. But I need it direct (no plane changes). My wife is from Feira de Santana, 60 mls W of SSA and this year we are travelling with our 12-month old (by Christmas) little daughter.

For quite a long, VASP was serving São Paulo-(three times a week with Stopovers at Salvador de BAhia and three or four at Madrid)-Barcelona, with some M11s they leased. The duration of the BCN-SSA section was 8h20, without stopover at MAD, or 10 hrs with stopover. The flight was for US$500-to-800. Two years ago, more or less, VASP had to get rid of the M11s due to financial trouble.
Now, the only options are TP or AF: TP BCN-LIS-(maybe REC or FOR)-SSa, or only twice a week LIS-SSA. However, this is expensive. Reserving NOW (end of july) for December, we're getting prices around USD1100 or waiting lists... The cheapest option right now is AF BCN-CDG-GRU-SSA (two hours to the north+11h30 to the south+another 2h30 to the north, total trip time about 20 hrs) for the nice amount of 1050USD.
Can you understand how much I miss VASP and their VP784-VP785 flights?

I would say a
San Juan - London route is necessary. BA did a good job serving the route but they are now gone .

San Juan- Mexico City. Eventhough Mexicna tried it and it didn't work. I think they should have given it more time and help it expand. Turism from Puerto Rico to Mexico is big plus there are Mexicans here that would like to go back to Mexico and visit without having to stop at PTY or MIA.

I badly need a Mannheim-Dortmund flight - wishfull thinking, though - I´d probably be the only customer  Big grin.
I live in Dortmund and study and work at Mannheim University. The only alternatives are the train which takes 4 hours or FRA-DTM, door to door 3.5 hours at best - at the double price  Sad.

Either of these routes: London to MKE or AMS to MKE... on Virgin or KLM... code sharing with MidEx for feeder service from MCI, Des Moines, and other midwest locations... not too far fetched in my opinion!

MSY-DEN Frontier A320
MSY-OAK jetBlue A320
MSY-MCO AirTran 717-200

ATL-MKE AirTran 717-200
ATL-JFK jetBlue A320

BA flies its 777 PHX to London direct- it's great if you travel a lot to the UK and don't want to bother switching planes or anything. But boy, it's a crusher of a flight!

I could use a FAT-ORD..maybe someday with a new CRJ700?? IF not ORD maybe STL.

Also, as someone mentioned DFW-EZE..Probably be a while with economic conditions in Argentina and the fallout of AR.

Any transatlantic nonstop to Edinburgh.

Ottawa-Austin. All though AC tried and failed on Toronto-Austin, I see larger potential in connecting two silicon centers to complete the silicon triangle (SJC,AUS,YOW)

I think MSP really needs it's non-stop to HKG back. I'd also love to see more trans-atlantic service, maybe British Airways to LHR.

Salem, OR to SFO, SEA & SLC or DEN because it is a pain to drive to PDX. But since PDX is a real airport (lol), they need PDX to NRT, SEO, BOS, MEX, PHL, PIT, MIA, FRA, LHR/LGW

FLAIRPORT, FLL-NAS is flown by Continental Connection and Bahamasair. FLL-RSW is not flown, but MIA-RSW is, and MIA is only 19 miles south.

DLMCO, with this past April's cancelation of MIA-FCO (in exchange for extra MIA-MXP flights), Alitalia, in the US, only serves the New York City area from Rome. Plus, there is no market from Tampa what so ever, and the market from Orlando is also virtually non-existant. MAYBE MIA-MXP, but that is still stretching it a lot.

Pilottim747, under BII, MSP-LHR cannot be flown. Though I have heard BA might make MSP thier next US destination (via LGW). I do believe MSP is the largest US city without service from British Airways.

Mah4546 -- I interpreted the intent of this thread to be what would you LIKE to see, not what do you EXPECT to see. Did I misunderstand? BTW, doesn't AZ offer service to FCO from DTW, or is that a codeshare with NW?

MAYBE MIA-MXP, but that is still stretching it a lot.

Did you mean to say MCO-FXP?

Slightly off topic but the following US cities larger than MSP have no BA service.
SAT, SJC, IND, JAX, CMH, AUS, MEM, MKE, BNA, ELP, CLT, PDX, OKC, TUS, MSY, LAS, ABQ, MCI, FAT, SMF, TUL, OMA. I left one or two out as they are suburbs of cities that do have BA service.

Actually if you consider metropolitan populations, which is what counts, MSP is significantly bigger, in most cases more than twice as big as every city on that list, with the exception of SJC, which falls into the sphere of SFO...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

BOSTON TO NEW ORLEANS!
SEATTLE TO NEW ORLEANS!
LONDON TO NEW ORLEANS!


All of these are no-brainers.......
1) Southwest could add MSY-SEA, originating in Florida.
2) Delta/American/US Airways could add MSY-BOS
3) BA or Virgin could add a twice-weekly seasonal service

ORD-PNS

ORD is the third largest O+D market for PNS yet no nonstop service. Having this nonstop would save me a lot of time.

MCI-MIA, on AA or Vanguard.
MCI-MEX on Mexicana or AeroMexico.
MCI-LGW, or MCI-FRA, Kansas City has big businesses that send people on business trips to Europe all the time and they complain about having to go through stops. BA could likely make the route profitable with a 763, maybe a few times a week, or weekly. It would be interesting to see how BA would do with this route. I've always though an MCI-ORD-LGW service might work as well, the same concept as BA's old LGW-PHX-SAN route, what passengers they didn't board here in Kansas City they could pick up at the stopover in Chicago. What do you guys think?

RE: MCI

Yeah, I think a London flight would work as well, if not non-stop, then Via MKE with a MidEx code share, then onward on BA or Virgin!

(in a fantasy world, MidEx would have a 2x2x2 767 to do the job!)

DLMCO, DTW-FCO is an AZ codeshare operated by Northwest. In exchange, AZ code-shares with NW on MIA-DTW and NW codeshares with AZ on MIA-MXP.

Piedmont, metropolitan area population, not city proper, is what matters. There are 750,000 people living in the city proper of Jacksonville, but only 1.1M people living in the metro region. In comparison, 370,000 people live in Minneapolis, but over 3.2M live in surrounding areas. What's the bigger market? MSP is, I think, America's 15th largest.

Everyone will laugh at me, but I really want SLC-ELP on Delta. They used to have a 1-stop service, but they even did away with that  Sad

So, how 'bout it DL? Maybe a Skywest CRJ??? I don't really care, but I don't want to fly through PHX or DFW to get to ELP!

I'd like to stop in japan sometime, but SQ doesn't fly
to/from there from/to SFO, only LAX.
