I apologize, the forum will not let me edit the original post/link now. Here it is. I guess I shouldn't have used something other than Bitly. Thanks mfe777 for posting the direct link too. I don't think I am allowed to do that.
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for June 2019. All I can say is wow, some of these are really crazy, even for summer. Emirates at 94.5% overall, and 98.58% departing - just five open seats per day of 354 total. AeroMexico with a stellar month - particularly depart...Jump to post
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...Jump to post

TK has been a longstanding rumor at DFW for a few years now. Time will tell. For the folks rightly pointing out that DFW is a oneworld hub with AA, I would point out that both KE and LH have been doing fairly well here for a long time, despite their SkyTeam and Star Alliance memberships. So it is po...Jump to post
I have the actual PDF application on the thread on my site, but I didn't include it because whenever I put a direct link to my site (rather than bitly etc) on here it gets deleted. but it looks like others have linked it above. so on there it shows source and the PDF file. Or. go to regulations.gov,...Jump to post
AA has DFW-ICN, NRT (2x), PEK, HKG right now so pretty good coverage at least for the main spots?
DFW-HND coming soon too.
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for May 2019. Everyone looks pretty solid across the board as we head into the summer season. Air France hits 80% in their second month after a 77% debut month in April. Qantas rebounds nicely after a rough April, while British, Jap...Jump to post
DFW is interesting with a new terminal under construction. Nothing has started yet, just started with approval for the process in the last few weeks. Design and planning phase now. Terminal E satellite came online last month adding 15 gates for AA to use. I think all other Terminal renovation proje...Jump to post
People have commented here that SYD-DFW does well with Australian corporate travelers with F/J selling full most days. This is what keeps the A380 on the route. If they didn't have that they'd downgrade to the 789 and launch MEL-DFW. I would agree there - if you are coming close to selling 14F and ...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for April 2019. Japan and Lufthansa are the standouts for the month in the high 80s. Air France's first full month on the DFW-Paris CDG route sees them at a respectable 76%. I'm not sure about Qantas, but April looks like it was ugl...Jump to post
On another note, AA is adding DFW-TGU and DFW-SAP in a week. A319s.Jump to post
These asbestos rumors in Terminal C have persisted on this site, but is there any documentation of this? The timing just doesn't make sense. If all of the original terminals had asbestos, that would make sense, but any renovations to 3E after the original opening to make individual gate areas would...Jump to post
Quick question - any different rules in the UK re photo attribution in published works? I ask because I have a Flickr gallery, since March 2008, of a bunch of old slides my late father took. Included is a picture of the interior of Heathrow Terminal 3 in the 1960s. I now see it has been included in ...Jump to post
Easy one here, just a brain check please. https://www.heathrow.com/file_source/HeathrowNoise/Static/Runway_Alternation_Programme_2019.pdf The week starting 17June, 27L will be used 6a-3p - so perfect time for Myrtle Avenue, correct? Just want to be sure before I get my trip sorted. I realize things ...Jump to post
BA is back to the 777-200 for the summer (744 returns in winter season). So I took the BA seat counts for March from the BA Source website - it showed 226 (14F 48J 40W 124Y) and 219 (12F 48J 32W 127Y) seat variety on the route. Also showed 24 flights for the month. No flights recorded on the 5th,12t...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for March 2019. Pretty strong across the board, and Interjet had its best month in a long time at 78%. British Airways and Japan Airlines in the low 90s, Lufthansa and Qantas in the upper 80s. Air France had its first flight at the ...Jump to post
I thought there was also DFW-MUC, DFW-CDG on Delta back in the day, but I could be wrong. It was June/July timeframe in 2005 when the hub closed. Went from 250-260 daily flights to about 20. DL had all of Terminal E and the Satellite, then down to 4 gates. E was a literal ghost town for a few years ...Jump to post
I'll be happy when I get my bags from AA in less than 40-45 minutes after arriving at DFW.Jump to post
The Qantas total seat numbers are incorrect as they dropped from daily to 6 weekly at the beginning of February, For February they only operated 24 flights for the month not 28 Well, I made a proper mess of that, didn't I. That's all on me, I know its 6x a week and didn't even think of that when co...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for February 2019. For the low season, nothing too bad here. Air Canada impressive at 86%, British and Lufthansa in the 80s, and Japan Airlines strong again at 91%.
I think KLM did pretty well as they stuck around for 6-8 years overall, with the last 3-5 being seasonal. My understanding is that freight was full each day with extra being trucked down to IAH. I think the reason it dropped was the thinking that the aircraft would be better served on AMS-SLC rather...Jump to post

Enjoy! All services for Japan Airlines were by the 195 seat version, for future reference all I did was check FR24 for the rego's and then checked the aircraft used. If you are unsure about what registrations have what configurations, go to the 787 In service thread, everything you need to know is ...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for January 2019. What immediately stands out is Japan Airlines and their 102% departing load factor. How can this be? Well of course, it cannot. I've been calculating Japan's numbers using the 195 seats 787-9 on the route, which is...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for December 2018. First of all, how about Interjet? After struggling most of the year with half empty planes, they finish 2018 with an 80% load factor! Get the champagne out. Emirates has clearly recovered a bit over the past few m...Jump to post
I'm happy if you have more updated info on the seats available to readjust numbers. Admittedly I'm going off seat totals I was told two years ago. If its different now and there is a more realistic number, if any, I'm happy to calculate with those going forward. In fact, I'd love if someone with val...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for November 2018. WOW Air has departed (for good) and British Airways downgauges to the Boeing 777-200 in November, with 226 seats. The winter lull is setting in and we see decreased load factors across the board. https://bit.ly/2H...Jump to post
Lol you'd be hard pressed to find any TSA employee that was a republican. That is a statement bereft of any basis in fact.

on another note, QR will run A350-1000 to/from DFW from July. Confirmed on QR site.Jump to post
Very surprised to see BA performing so weak. Would have thought that DFW as a OW hub could bring a much higher LF BA was at 76% in September, 83% in August, 84% in July, 95% in June, 85% in May, and 79% in April. So they did well over the summer, of course things slow down in the fall and winter. A...Jump to post
Well, not any different really than it looked in previous years before they jumped in. Compared to say 10+ years ago when it was basically BA, KE, and LH, DFW has added quite a portfolio overall. Air France is set to start up seasonal service next summer as well. I suppose like any big airport, some...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for October 2018. Lufthansa strong at 90% overall, and this includes nearly two weeks with the extra seats on the Airbus A340-600. I've calculated these with 281 seats, if this data is incorrect, please let me know - that's what OAG...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for September 2018. Interjet back to its usual half-empty/half-full planes (depending on your outlook)... Interesting that WOW dropped to 64% after being at 80, 91, 90 percent the prior three months. Icelandair mid 60s which is typi...Jump to post
If WN didn't go to DFW during the Wright Amendment, they sure as heck aren't going to do it now. And AA's behavior towards BN by deliberatly slowing down taxiing in front of BN aircraft certainly is an example of why WN didn't want to have to move to DFW. I've heard stories of that from many old AA...Jump to post
DFW was always seasonal on WOW. Not sure why this thread is titled WOW AXES DFW/JFK when it was a seasonal flight coming to the end of... the season. 90% plus LF each month last three months. Not sure of course on yield.Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for August 2018. Fourth month in a row for Japan over 90% - might this route sooner or later get pushed up to 777-300/ER?
