Re: Colorado offering incentives to start DEN-CDG

I kind of see this as a major fail on the part of the legacies if Norwegian starts DEN-CDG before either Star or Skyteam. The only legacy carrier that's actually been starting new TATL routes is BA and that's to keep out DY. So far, it seems to be working, but AF is a sitting duck. I can't remember...
