Is FI completely dropping DFW-KEF? I notice that in this report DFW-KEF is still showing some flights in May... So is the season just reduced to peak summer months, or is it really fully gone?
It’s unfortunately fully gone as things stand, announced earlier this month. I hope it’ll come back though at some point in the future as I still believe there’s room for ~180 seats a day on that route, especially once more European connections are added to FI’s network.
AA is stile flying DFW-KEF in S19 as far as I know.
Yes, I’m aware. FI has been operating year-round so I was more referencing to that. However, while I really hope AA stays in KEF because the more variety the better, I’m not too optimistic their DFW route is here for the long run now that FI and WOW are gone. I hope they’ll prove me wrong though!
Also, if three airlines saw an opportunity to add a total of 700 seats a day on a route, like the situation was last summer, that same route must at least have some basis in a more balanced competitive environment. That’s the reason I still believe AA might stay or FI could return one day.
