Why's BRU so underserved go major US hubs? How about because BRU no longer is the same big attractive hub it was when it had Sabena? Those new or re-started BRU US hubs flights, either year-around or seasonal will happen only when LH (who runs SN) has a desire to build-up BRU hub adding some more ke...Jump to post
IMHO, SK will return to SEA.
Not sure how soon but most likely from either CPH or ARN.
I wouldn't be surprised also that then the other flight could get a flight to the Americas. Local authorities in BCN are obsessed to promote the airport for 5th freedom flights (like the failed BCN-MEX with Aeromexico and then Emirates) so maybe they could think to link it to a Latin American desti...Jump to post
I dont think ADD-BCN/MAD-IAH would be a terrible idea. Ehh...I would prefer the rumored ADD-ACC-IAH route, that way IAH gets back into the ‘Six Continent Club’.

I wonder if AV would ever consider starting MGA-JFK. I think Managua-New York has enough demand for maybe 3x-4x flights a week.

IMHO, Before or while opening new U.S. destinations, CM would need to increase frequencies to MIA, FLL (almost up to double daily), TPA, MSY, LAS, ORD (seasonal red-eyes) and BOS (seasonal red eyes).

CA stops at MAD for the flights to GRU, and at YUL for the HAV ones. So it will either be in Europe or in Canada, avoiding the USA.

Has CM indicated what it will / or wants to replace its regional jets with.

It could be possible then sooner or later RSW might be interesting for BA LGW service given that TPA (a market somewhat alike) already has BA.

COPA could offer a much nicer business class product than LATAM on the entire routing with one of the most convenient airports to connect in.
