With PDX, BA would then have a grasp of much of the tech market.
PDX- Silicon Forest
SJC - Silicon Valley
PHX - Silicon Desert
AUS - Silicon Hills
As part of the JV
, American also serves the Silicon Triangle (RDU
) and BA
does Silicon Harbor (BOS
). I have doubts that PDX
is big enough to sustain two daily transatlantic departures; LH
service didn't last long once DL
showed up, though should the AS
/DL relationship deteriorate further relative to AA
/AS there might be an opening there.
's interested in more tech oriented markets, PIT
is increasingly a bigger player, especially when it comes to robotics and bumping off DL
's seasonal CDG
service in favor of a year round one to LHR
would be easier. There's also a ton of high tech stuff being done with regards to the automotive industry in Oakland County north of DTW
would be perfectly suited to start on AA
752s, though the JV
has yet to pursue that model of service.
