This is for O&D connecting the 3rd largest metro area in the US with the growing SEA hub. I don't think many travelers in Chicago take DL to Asia given all of the flights (4x Daily NRT, 1X Daily HND, 3X Daily BJS, 3X Daily PVG, 2X Daily HKG, 2X Daily ICN, 1X Daily TPE). I'm sure in the next coup...Jump to post

Should be interesting. Is LAX next from ORD.
Maybe ORD will no get 788 service to GRU to compete with UA.Jump to post
I'm sure our friends in DTW will say that CAN, CTU, and all the other secondary China cities served via SFO/LAX/JFK, are much better served via DTW. DTW has a better location, better hub, more secondary China O&D than NY, LA, SF, and CHI combined! Not to mention DTW and CAN have the highest per ...Jump to post
I'm sure the US3 are happy with this! They will compete with "Clever Norweigean," but are terrified of airlines with a real first class. Just goes to show that the US3 product is geared to Chevy, not Cadilac.Jump to post
UA does a decent job for ORD-Caribbean / Mexico in winter. Look at their spring break schedule this Saturday: SJD: 2x PVR: 2x ZIH: 1x CUN: 7x SJU: 3x STT: 1x AUA: 2x MBJ: 2x GCM: 1x PLS: 2x PUJ: 2x NAS: 2x SXM: 1x UVF: 1x BZE: 1x LIR: 2x SJO: 2x AA has a few as well, but not like UA. PVR SJD CUN CZM...Jump to post
What about a return to ORD (not likely), or IAD/LAX?
I'm sure BOS/DTW/MIA are on the radar.
Parker is a "no talent ass clown." One living in Dallas only wishes for an alternative to AAs near monopoly at DFW. And by the way Doug, if it wasn't for Open Skies, you and BA would be flying DFW-LGW, not LHR. I hope Trump honors the Open Skies agreements and creates more. Get off your as...Jump to post
This is why no sane person would invest in an airline! Add all these seats to a restricted market, and shocked that only 30 people a day have all the paperwork. US airline management is probably the most incompetent in the world. Slogan of USA airline CEOs should be, "hold my beer, watch this r...Jump to post
If you can't compete, quit. Sounds like Oscar has a reason to kill EWR-ATH.
The US in the past has supported open markets. This got DL, CO, US into LHR. Now you don't hear that brought up!
SEA is north and not a Star hub (plus that Vancouver thing close by). LAS, not sure what this offers except leisure traffic. DEN, what does this provide that IAH doesn't? ORD, seems logical for NE/Canada/Europe connections and ORD-OZ (but would cannibalize UA feed out West). EWR, big O&D, but fa...Jump to post
Yes, the US has the highest tax rate in the free world, but no one other than Telecoms pay that rate. This is a great opportunity for Boeing / Trump to announce a new AF1 and more jobs.Jump to post
UA has done ORD-GEG in the past. Doubt this was on AAs radar, but ORD-RST/CLO/CMI/COU is a direct shot at AA. Let's see if AA responds (if they can due to limited gate space, the ORD dilemma). Grab your popcorn folks, me thinks the UA/AA brawl at ORD is just heating up (see mid/late 80s additions)!Jump to post
ORD showing some improvement. The new runway/s and proposed new terminal can only help.Jump to post
ORD will be a large/important "SPOKE" in the DL network. The shuttle to LGA at the MAT is great! You can't beat the schedule to ATL and JFK. CVG, MSP, DTW, and SLC hold their own. Just add a few flights to BOS/LAX/RDU/SEA and possibly LHR JV, and ORD is set. Approximately 70 flights per da...Jump to post
This forum hates ORD. The new runways are great, the problem is the lack of new gates! DTW has similar weather as ORD, but doesn't have UA vs. AA, not to mention WN impacting ATC. This is a big impact with on-time performance, although WN at MDW seems to be fine. But the whole picture shows quite a ...Jump to post
The fact that UA is not more dominant than AA at ORD with 20 more gates shows the incompetence former UA management. Maybe Kirby will do something, but if he doesn't think the 77W plays a role at ORD (HKG, NRT, PVG, BJS, FRA, potential BOM), he's as clueless as the previous UA/CO leadership. UA is t...Jump to post
Extremely Misleading Title.
Mods, please remove or change title.
Doubt ORD would ever go to LGW. This is a premium heavy route that needs frequency. As mentioned above, if Norweigean entered the market, there could be one Y heavy plane on the route.? Other than that, 6x daily (AA/BA JV) is good frequency, but limits the chance of the Whale by BA (could go 5x with...Jump to post
My sources have been dead on with the MD80 draw down. ORD is where it should be as is DFW. The non ORD/DFW routes will disappear soon. RDU, MSP, TUS, and a few others will be in the long run.
Also, schedules past 4.1 are placeholders, so don't book a flight expecting a MadDog.
ORD-SJO is going seasonal.Jump to post
DTW is becoming the next MIA and BOS. Any runway over 9,000 feet can handle nonstop service. Poland is a low yielding market that is NYC/CHI centric. If the market to DTW or PIT (another large Polish city), was there, we would see flights. ORD-ATH is much bigger than DTW-WAW, yet there are no flight...Jump to post
How would this impact future DFW-MEL and ORD-SYD future flights?Jump to post
