Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for April 2018. Nothing too out of the ordinary here or anything unexpected. First month without Etihad service.

Re: DFW rumors and airlines most likely to come

Indeed as mentioned above, EI has been mentioned for ages... but with AA going to 4x daily from late October in addition to the BA 1x daily to LHR, I wonder if there is still enough market left for another flight to the "neighborhood." I will believe EI when we see an official announcement...

Re: American Airlines Network Thread 2018

Sure. Well thank you for sharing your thoughts. I agree on 5x being a lot in the winter, I think even in past summers 4x has been the most. I'd hate to see BA go (its an old BCAL route) and also find it hard to kind of believe overall, but with the JV anything is possible.

Re: American Airlines winter 2018 network changes

After reading further, I think what will happen is simply one more DFW-LHR frequency on AA and the BA flight will remain as well. So as qcpilotxf mentioned, 5x daily, with 4 on AA and 1 on BA.

I know when I had a DFW-LHR flight in December, I didn't have to think twice on booking BA over AA.

Let's see if EK can start filling the 773 first on a constant basis after EY leaves before we look for A380. Although I will say that with 100+ A380s ,they have to go somewhere... so who knows.
