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

So... this week?
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
Probably designed by a drunk that now works at the Chive.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
:checkmark: AA president Robert Isom today referred to this pending codeshare, and the broader strategic relationship, with China Southern as a "game changer" for AA. 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Surprised ORD leads North America, considering the outdated facilities there.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
Ignore the trolls. This forum has turned into my airport vs. your airport. There are many great posters here with knowledge, insight, and experience. Unfortunately you take the good with the bad. Please ignore the few that spate hate, the moderators will address that, and let’s focus on meaning disc...Jump to post
And why do people do that do they not realize that by inflating the numbers of another airport is never going to land them more convenient services if anything that means that carriers are going to routinely add flights to those larger markets because people are willing to drive over an hour rather...Jump to post
If they make it that far.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. Ps I bet some notorious posters are going to comment on here complaining about how DTW takes over the world. Too many notorious posters! We all know the Aviation world revolves around DTW. I p...Jump to post
True. Question DTW and you are banned. Forum has turned into a joke!Jump to post
¿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). ATL: DL hub of the world BOS: Why not, wicked awesome! DEN: F ORD DTW: If it wasn't for DL, etc., DTW would handle 125M passengers per year, ...Jump to post
Chicago actually has very few African immigrants. Minneapolis, Dallas, Houston, and Atlanta have way more than Chicago does. True statement. If at all, South African Caucasian are the biggest settlement, but nothing like south Florida. Some really great South African bars on the N/NE side, but not ...Jump to post
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. IND is a short drive/flight to ORD and DTW. No reason for IND to NRT. Sure, you said Asia, but substitute ICN for NRT an...Jump to post
no! why do you assume detroit will get a new route? Nobody wants to fly there business is week and crime is highest in the nation I dont know any airline that would want to even fly there Not as high as the crime in Chicago. The user not to be named would disagree with you and say Chicago is a beau...Jump to post
Now that AUS, BNA, and MSY have LHR flights on BA, let's let the next entitled make their cases. Moderators, can we please start new threads (or single thread - US airports with no TATL service seeking service)! IND entitled to BA LHR service thread, MCI entitled to BA LHR service thread, (sane for ...Jump to post

I will repeat the "is this a joke" line? Colombo and Kuala Lumpur have no non-stop service to the U.S. because 1) there's very limited demand; 2) there's even less premium demand; and 3) the sectors are extremely long. Why should an airline waste a limited resource such as a long-haul air...Jump to post
There are a couple of great bars in Chicago run by South Africans, but that doesn't warrant a flight (this is Chicago, not Detroit which would print money on 10x daily JNB, NBO, ADD). MIA is a better location. Sure, SA did announce ORD, ET has talked about ORD, and Egypt is part of *, but I just don...Jump to post
There will be more 744 flights Are you referring to UA, and if so, how long? Yes. There will be a few more 744 flights at ORD before the desert. Just be prepared for short notice, or able to plan for the final route (rumored ORD-SFO). Also, there may be a couple of more ORD announcements for S18. N...Jump to post
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.
Are these a joke? Colombo to the US, much less DFW. HEL? Finnair would before AA. KUL? Malaysia dropped their non-stops. Further, why would they add DFW and not LAX. Moscow is the only reasonable one, but even then. American has nonstops from its main DFW hub to destinations that it does not serve ...Jump to post
My Chicago buddy has been quiet the last week (after foreshadowing UA-Hawaii, UA 744 flight, DY, and BUD). There will be more 744 flights and possible Dreamliner route!
