AA has tried tons of longhaul routes over the years from ORD -- EZE, DEL, GRU, FRA, HEL, DME, etc. As AA VP of Networks stated today, Chicago international flying has historically been "chronically loss-making - some of the worst in the network." They seem to do OK with seasonal flying, b...Jump to post
Delta will do whatever it needs too to keep the title of worlds busiest airport for Atlanta and after that it will make sure that it can call ATL the busiest airport in the Americas. It's something Delta loves to run up the flag pole as often as it can. I see you have already been called out for th...Jump to post
Like ORD, DFW it too far out of the way for the majority of the US population. But DTW isn't there are many passengers that their shortest route is over DTW in the Delta network but are forced over ATL Asia and Europe have many more favorable routings over Detroit but in most cases you are required...Jump to post
There have been “discussions” of HA at ORD, but I’m hearing AA is more likely, but not anytime soon.
Now that ET and NZ have announced service, getting QF as well as service to ATH, BOG (will happen), EZE, GYE/UIO, LIM, LIS, MXP, OSL, and TLV are top priorities.
JFK, LAX, MIA, BOS, and DTW seem like the obvious choices for North America.Jump to post
No. UA will get other planes and then move the oldest and worst to ORD (biggest hub, but red-headed step-child when it comes to new aircraft).Jump to post

We’re used to it. How many “I predict” and “rumor is” have been posted? Absolutely no credibility and brings the whole DTW forum look like a bunch of idiots. If KLMs predictions / rumors are real, DTW will have the largest international year over year growth in US aviation history! And ORD and YYZ w...Jump to post

The Bill hasn’t even cleared the Senate and will still have to be reconciled with the House Bill. Given there’s about 12 days left in Congress this year, let’s see if anything happens.Jump to post
Removing RJs is find but replace them one for one with mainline.. This statement shows me you have no idea what you're talking about. You can’t win when it comes to DTW, common sense goes out the window. Unless a cut flight is replaced by a wide body to an international city, it is a conspiracy aga...Jump to post

ROA airport is asking DL to restore the ROA-DTW route. I'd say this would be a good CRJ-700 route for GoJet or Skywest. Remember ROA was discontinued in 2014. http://www.wdbj7.com/content/news/Roanoke-Blacksburg-airport-recruits-help-for-nonstops-to-Dallas-Denver-Detroit-452845283.html COS is looki...Jump to post

I suspect he's right - this is going to dramatically improve AA's competitive position in Mainland China. Maybe this will ...Jump to post
Are you rooting for the region or the airport? The former only stands to gain from YQG service. If there's one thing everyone but you and KLM617 have understood by now, it's that there isn't room for another carrier flying London to Detroit. And that is one thing you and most other people don't und...Jump to post
Hipster Air! Look for all planes to be based at AUS and PDX with registrations of N420xx, with shuttle service to DEN and SEA.Jump to post
If AA can’t make it work from MIA, forget about any other US route, even NYC.Jump to post
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).
Surprised ORD leads North America, considering the outdated facilities there. All the more reason to get going on the Terminal rebuild/expansion. Just think what ORD could be with the new runway layout and proposed terminal set-up! Could be a real powerhouse if local airlines put as much attention ...Jump to post

I've heard about MIA/DFW/ORD,and also EZE. PEK seems not longer to be scheduled Make sense as AA large hubs with great connections! But as expected, the CLT and PHL fan club feels they are entitled to this as PHL is AAs European hub (albeit low margin) and CLT is the 2nd largest mainline. Just wait...Jump to post
I've always wondered the same thing, you'd think a nonstop would be doable year round, at least 2x weekly.

¿ORD and BOS first IB A350 destinations like the A330-300 years ago? ORD maybe in the summer. Though it seems to be doing well since it's a 346 year round now. Though I would really expect them to use it for EZE, SCL, or MEX first to get the most out of the fuel savings over the 340. ORD is just te...Jump to post
Yes, but unfortunately, the A-Netter's arm chair CEOs have control and all of these routes have A-Net approval before ORD (and all the O&D / Connections).

Load factor doesn't mean squat. Yields do, and airlines protect that information.
Also, if it hurts DY, that's what open markets are for.
Indy is perfect for an Asia flight Oh dear God, Detroit south with entitlements to every major international market nonstop. This entitled to LHR, now NRT is getting out of hand.
