Philadelphia is just about possible, due to the size of the market -- it's a big city, and includes other well-populated areas such as NJ and around DC -- and lack of Asia flights. I can definitely see Philly getting a Tokyo flight at some stage if Koreanair don't step in.
I'd love to see KE in Philly, but the fact that PHL doesn't have Asia flights right now might say something about the viability.... although the 787 could change that. Only thing is with KE being SkyTeam, AA could always start a PHL-ICN with their 787s (as more come online) and probably have much better loads since PHL is a OneWorld Hub.
