Re: AA adding DFW-KEF

West Coast-KEF is already served. The catchment is going to be limited to the Midwest. Already served by whom? There will be a good amount of people who would rather travel by AA rather than WOW. Folks in places like Los Angeles (with a large OneWorld frequent flier base) will probably be very draw...

Re: AA adding DFW-KEF

This is not a bright move on AA's part. How do they think this will go? They can offer no connections out of KEF so they are relying 100% on O/D. How much demand do they believe there is? Unlikely it is very much. And of that demand they will have the highest fares. They cannot compete in price and...
