Re: DFW Foreign Carrier Estimated June 2019 Loads

Don't forget BA and AA have the joint venture on the route - BA has the daily 772 while AA runs 4 flights as well to LHR. BA brings the 744 back with the winter schedule end of October.

Re: Lufthansa Polling On Which City To Send A380 To (ORD, SEA, TPA, DFW)

LH loads at DFW have been consistently good for quite a while, and DFW is of course A380 capable, with up to two at once being handled at Terminal D. However, its one thing to fill an A330, quite another for an A380. With AA also on DFW-FRA, I think that is enough capacity. I'd love to see the LH 38...
