Re: IS the new CX service to IAD the first 350 1000?

I believe it wil be. The only other A350-1000 route at present is DOH-LHR-DOH on QR. I am not sure if any airline uses the A359 to IAD but I don't think there is any. I don't believe there is any A350 service to IAD at all, so this may be the first regularly scheduled A350 service into IAD. Yeah, I...

Re: Denver: Future International Flights

I wouldn't but it past EK to enter DEN, and I bet they will sometime down the road.
I'm also surprised there's no service from AF/KL. I could see one of those 2 or DL launching service to either CDG or AMS
If not one of those, it'd probably be a Star Alliance carrier who jumps in
