^The Saudi and other national royal families went to/go to the Cleveland Clinic, not the Mayo Clinic. Not sure if it’s still the case but there was a case a few years back where a Saudi national was routinely in PHX for cancer treatment.

A bit too late to resume MAD-IAD (especially with TAP flying daily via LIS to multiple cities in Spain)? TP is targeting star (UA) pax base at IAD while IB is targeting OW (AA) pax base at DCA. Good news, expansion increases the likelihood of the A340s staying in the fleet a bit longer. Other poten...Jump to post
I wonder where all those 777’s are going? Where is IAH to PVG? Why UA wont add IAH to PVG? I heard Houston need Shanghai in the past and never serve. UA states in a townhall that IAH won’t be getting any additional flights to Asia. I imagine that route will be flown at some point but it will be fro...Jump to post

Any idea when the first 380 is due out of refurb? Looking forward to seeing the refresh of F and the new cafe seating. Wonder if it’s start or end of the month? Just out of curiousity but given that all the 747-400's had 'Longreach' on them as a reference to QF's birthplace and the long range abili...Jump to post
Seriously, nothing but wild speculation and wishful thinking. Houston should be happy and thankful for what it has and move on.

I wonder why it’s gonna take so long. Entire airports get built in 5 years yet this expansion is taking almost 4. Phased construction I would imagine... All this work must happen while keeping existing flight operations at minimal disruption. The reason is the new mayor of Houston is Turner came in...Jump to post
I'm glad to hear IAH is finally to rebuilt a new MLIT (Mickey Lealand International Terminal) with more widebodies to come. So future airlines guess would be TAP, SAS, Swiss plus more star alliance and non star alliance to serve IAH. Remember the movie Field of Dreams quote If you built then we will...Jump to post

Since everyone is obsessed with KUL.. How about HNL-KUL? Closest place with plenty of flights to AA hubs. Monopoly market plus the AA 788 are suitable with the small J cabins.

Stopping over at MEX seems to be an option?
MEX is a bit off route and CA already flies there.
Will DFW or CLT - ZRH ever work Swiss? Seems like LH does well from DFW and CLT, and ZRH is Financial hub, like DFW and CLT.

Icelandair should pick IAH over DFW and they picked DFW until pulled out then AA took over the route. If they pick IAH then they will be alive flying than DFW.
