AA is weak in Germany. They can’t make MIA and ORD work! LH has done well in DFW, but that’s about it for DFW-Germany.

TXL and DUS to ORD have potential in the right sized plane (yield to be profitable). Whether it is UA or LH Group (not LH, but partner).

TPAC and TATL are totally different markets. Look at LHR vs. NRT! JFK is shuttle to LHR and ORD is 9X daily. Not 1/2 that to NRT.

Sure, stage length is an issue, but there is much more "vacation" traffic to Europe that shows in the summer explosion of flights.
