Re: Korean Air announces Boston

I called it. The DTW folks kept saying KE would go into DTW rather than DL adding MSP and KE adding BOS. Yet here we are. It's rather good to see some connecting traffic taken away from DTW. Solid add for KE and I'm positive it'll go daily in short order. It was usually some of the local crazies. O...

Highly unlikely. Supporting a sponsor in a city with a population no more than 250,000 and you can get to/from AMS in an hour anyways versus one of Europe's major connecting hubs where you happen to have an alliance partner (KL) being the dominant carrier to easily fill your flight (AM).
