Re: AA announces PHL-TXL/DBV/BLQ/EDI, PHX-LHR, DFW-DUB/MUC, CLT-MUC, ORD-ATH

No gates available for LH. So that means no gates if Air France, IcelandAir, Wow, Qatar, KLM, or another international carrier wants to fly to CLT? Do you think CLT Airport's response will be sorry, we don't have any gates? When LH flew CLT-FRA before the flight did not depart CLT until 940p which ...

So long LH in CLT. I don’t see any way that this route can sustain two carriers. It is more probable that LH retaliates by launching FRA at CLT and MUC at PHL. No gates available for LH.

Re: AA announces PHL-TXL/DBV/BLG/EDI, PHX-LHR, DFW-DUB/MUC, CLT-MUC, ORD-ATH

US ran LH out of CLT before on the FRA route. It was more than just nonstop competition from US that caused LH to exit CLT-FRA. LH only flew the route 3Xs per week (Su/We/Fr) and the aircraft was a 747-200 Combi, which is not the most efficient aircraft. The flight also continued onto IAH. IAH had ...

They didn't just come along with the aquistion of FL, they were 2/3 of FL's fleet. The greatest benefit of the FL merger was getting rid of FL, and getting a ton of gates in ATL to start out big.

Likewise, CO was not an A300 buyer, they came from the Texas Air aquisition of EA.
