Why? Who else flies non-stop from EWR to DXB? I think Delta LH only flies to AMS and CDG from Newark.

Wow ... that's pretty impressive. I suppose AMS will become one of Europe's busiest airports in terms of widebody movement.

Interesting about AMS. Has the growth come from larger aircraft being sent since I remember there are no free slots left. In S18 carriers will be operating larger aircraft into AMS to overcome the slot restrictions: - KL replaces Fokker 70 with E75 = +8 seats on many 100s of movements each month. -...Jump to post
Why AMS Delta should go to Paris CDG, Paris is a bigger hub and a bigger city.

I know they did fly them YYZ-YMX-LIS as well. Here they are seen at AMS, FCO and FAO. Rome must have been a tag on to Portugal I guess. A series 10 couldn't make it there nonstop.

It was definitely a GARUDA operated flight, as GA had its Middle East stop-over for European services at AUH.
KLM only stopped at DXB (B747) or KHI (DC10) on its way to Indonesia.
In recent history KLM did operate to Surabaya for a short while, while KLM last operated to Medan pre-1948.

There are probably close to a dozen routes out of ATL that have at least 12 flights at some point in the year. BOS, LGA, DCA, FLL, MCO, DFW, ORD, and LAX come immediately to mind.

DL's transatlantic routes out of SEA seem to be more developed and can support larger aircraft (333's, 777's) and multiple frequencies.

I am surprised that there is no 'daytime' flight to AMS (as there is with LHR). I would have thought they could support at least one.

DL cancels AMS-EWR today, so from next week the B763 will fly AMS-MCO. MCO-AMS creates more capacity on ATL-AMS by taking existing MCO-AMS pax off the transfer MCO-ATL-AMS sectors.
