EK should confirm launch to Miami, Boston, Chicago, and Atlanta soon, good chance at least two of those will be in 2013. LAX, and San Fran should get airframe up grade to 380 also.

Mhmm. That sounds like it. I think EK will definitely do ORD, if not BOS or MIA. And EK to ATL would mean competition from DL as well.

Air China Coming to Houston

Air China will add Houston Bush Intercontinental as its newest U.S. gateway with plans to begin nonstop service to Beijing on July 11 (pending regulatory approval).

In a press release announcing the new route, Air China President Jianjiang Cai says "We've seen a steady growth of air travel between Houston and China in recent years, and now it will become the first scheduled passenger destination in the U.S. that we've added in three decades."

Air China plans to fly four flights a week on Boeing 777-300ER jets. China-bound flights will leave Houston at 1:40 a.m. and land in Beijing at 5 a.m. the next day, all times local. The return flight will leave Beijing at 3 p.m. and land in Houston at 3:30 p.m. on the same day, all times local.

Given Houston's Star Alliance hub status with United, it makes sense and will become Air China's fifth destination in North America. Its others are Los Angeles, New York JFK, San Francisco and Vancouver.

Whoa, Emirates is really expanding deeper into NYC! I then wonder: how many Emirates flights will operate from JFK starting October? I recall two nonstop flights, and I still wonder if EK operates that one-stop flight via Germany...? But if that's the case, I might guess it will be a thrice-daily or 4x daily rotation. That's some serious effort from Dubai indeed!

Considering the fact that Alitalia, American Airlines, and Delta Airlines already cover the New York-Milan route, why is Emirates deciding to cover this route as well?

Perhaps Emirates wants to help boost competitiveness on the route, as well as providing better service on board to allow passengers more choices on this route. I find it a surprising move, though, given that it has tried Hamburg (if I recall correctly before) as a stopover to JFK, and routing the flight through MXP brings an interesting twist to the story.

Doesn't TACA already serve Orlando? It sounds like they are just increasing service.

It already serves Orlando, so it must be increased service. However, note that it says Avianca-TACA, in which it indicates that a joint service between Avianca (of Colombia) and TACA (route operator) will be operated on the Orlando—San Salvador route, with AV flight numbers instead of TACA.

Right, so basically they are just codesharing that route?
