Dallas/Ft. Worth Summer 2018 International Routes, Frequencies, and Aircraft

Thu Feb 15, 2018 6:35 pm

Hello -

We have a fairly accurate high-level overview of international services available out of DFW per what is available in the GDS. The data is taken from July/August 2018, compared to July/August 2017, which means that the sample in this distribution is subject to a small standard error / standard deviation for May / June / August / September months.*

To view last years' data, please visit https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1357403 for Summer 2017. 

Also, if you are interested in joining the DFW Airport Facebook Aviation page, please click here to request to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/268487976660572/

*As a disclaimer, these schedules have NOT been verified by any specific airlines nor by DFW airport. This data is taken from PUBLICLY-available sources and compiled in such a manner to get a broad view of what information has been loaded into airline reservation systems. As such, it is subject to CHANGE at any given time. If you see any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions, please feel free to post a response in the comments section below, but I urge you to do so POLITELY, as it is very time-consuming to put this report together and nearly impossible for it to be error-proof. Thank you in advance.

High-Level Summary of the Changes from S17:

• Perhaps the most salient takeaway is that American Airlines is utilizing the Boeing 777 family on the vast majority of long-haul flights from DFW. All flights to Europe and deep South America will be on 777-200ERs, with the exception of London Heathrow and Sao Paulo, which will be 777-300ERs. Asia will continue to see 777-300ER deployment to Hong Kong and 777-200ER to Narita (2 daily), while Beijing, Shanghai, and Seoul will all be on 787-9s. There will be no 787-8s flying long-haul from DFW by end of the summer, although this is subject to change.

• One MD-80 international route remains, which is a daily service to Toronto.

• The vast majority of Americans 777-200ERs have been retrofitted with the new cabin configuration (37 J, 24 W, 212 Y) vs. the old configuration without Premium Economy (25 J and 215 Y). Presumably, these birds will come to DFW this summer. Also worth noting is that, all five daily flights to the Hawaiian Islands (2x to HNL, 2x to OGG, and 1x to KOA) will be on 777-200ERs, and may include Premium Economy as well.

• There were very minor changes to AA's short-haul trans-border routes, along with Latin/Caribbean leisure and VFR markets, compared to the YoY changes in Summer 2017 vs. Summer 2016, despite the natural disasters from Fall 2017

• Three new carriers will be flying from DFW to Iceland this summer. WOW Air will commence on May 24, 2018 and Icelandair will commence May 30, 2018. Both will run year-round (presumably). American Airlines will start flights from DFW to KEF, running from June 7 through October 27.

• Other noteworthy changes: capacity on non-AA carriers to Europe, the Middle East, and near Latin America will remain flat year-over-year, with the exception of Etihad (who is cancelling service to DFW in March 2018). Asia, however, is a different story, as JAL is up-gauging DFW from a 787-8 to a 787-9, and Korean Air is up-gauging Seoul from a 777-200ER to a -300ER.

One new market: Reykjavik (AA, FI, WW)
One discontinued carrier: Etihad Airways
Two discontinued markets: Abu Dhabi (EY) and Panama City (AA)

Is this just the CRJ-705 being redesignated as the CRJ-900? If so, not really an upgauge.

Thank you for posting this information as I used to live in Dallas and enjoy staying updated as to what is going on at DFW. Surprised that AA has dropped Panama City; does this create an opportunity for COPA to serve DFW? A number of years ago AA flew 2 daily on some days of the week DFW - Sao Paulo. Any chance of this type of frequency coming back?

The CR7 as identified by AC is actually a CR9. They code it as a CRJ-705 for union scope reasons. AFAIK, no AC affiliate has ever operated a true CRJ-700.

Does this mark the end of AA 763 flying in DFW, or are there still some shorthaul rotations planned?

Hard to recall a prior time that AA had 19 daily 777 flights at DFW, and I'm guessing we'll also see the occasional LAX and MIA rotation.

I don't think the domestic widebody schedule for summer is finalized yet... May does appear to be finalized, and there is just 1x daily 772 between MIA and DFW as far as widebody flying goes. I wouldn't be surprised if there are a few 763s on DFW-MIA from June onward, but I also wouldn't be surprised if the currently loaded 763s were to disappear once the June schedule is finalized. We'll see within the next few weeks, I'd guess.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

Pretty much all of them will be based in ORD. I will be publishing a blog post about this sometime next week, but based on what I have seen, all 10 of ORD's INTL ops (LHR, DUB, CDG, FCO, BCN, VCE, MAN, NRT, PEK, PVG) are 788's' this summer. We know that there are 20 in the fleet with no further deliveries coming. Markets like LHR have 4x daily flights, and PEK/PVG/NRT require more than 1 aircraft and RON at some stations (like PEK due to crappy slots).

Thanks for the information. I do like stepping out into the backyard and watching northerly departures for Europe in the late afternoon and early evening. The sight of 772s, 77Ws, 788s, LH A330/A340, and BA 744 climbing into the sky whilst I sit in my spa is truly enjoyable.

Those DFW LHR flights are packed in the summer (not only in the summer, year round).

Additionally, I am surprised DFW LIM is not a 763, that flight has very healthy loads (front and back).
Fly the Flag!!!!

I could have sworn a few days ago I saw a thread regarding summer 2018 DFW international routes, but instead, most long haul routes were now 788, and the Hong Kong flight was switched to CX equipment.... what did I miss?

Thanks for posting this. Does anyone want to surmise possible changes for next summer? I could see DUB finally being added 3-4 times a week.
