Dallas News: American Airlines to fly to Seoul and Lima from Dallas/Fort Worth
DFW-ICN? That's out of left field. Do they think they can cut into KE's market share? I don't think KE even flies daily right now.

I don't think it will cut too much into their traffic share since I expect many passengers on the Seoul flight will not be originating in DFW but connecting. That being said though I am surprised as you are in the sense that I thought ORD would have been a much more logical starting point (although heavy competition from Korean Air and Asiana may have played a role regarding starting service to DFW instead or ORD).

AA is going thru some financial problems right now yes, however long-haul international flights tend to be very profitable so I see why they are adding new routes to Seoul (where American Airlines does not even have a presence) and Lima which is a huge hub for codeshare partner LAN Airlines.

Here is a much more detailed description of the Seoul-Dallas market segment courtesy of justme02 over at citydata who is very knowledgable about the airline industry.

Another part of it is that DFW-Seoul is the largest Texas-Asia local market. Its 33% larger than the 2nd largest Texas-Asia local market (Houston-Beijing). DFW-Seoul and Austin-Seoul are both very high yielding markets and have some of the best yields in Texas-Asia. Austin-Seoul is actually about the same size as Houston-Seoul.

Another part is that AA views Chicago-Seoul being a more important market than Dallas-Seoul to Korean Air (which is true). They think they can shove Korean Air either out of the market, or force Korean Air to 3x weekly on DFW-Seoul. Korean Air has kind of become the Asian Ethnic carrier in the DFW market. Ethnic travel is not super profitable. They havent been real good about being able to get the business traffic between North Texas and Korea. Instead, that segment has been flying DFW-Tokyo-Seoul on American/JAL.

Then there is competition on Chicago-Seoul and Los Angeles Seoul. DFW-Seoul is obviously a much, much smaller market than Los Angeles-Seoul, but its not terribly smaller than Chicago-Seoul (about 20% smaller). Yet, Chicago-Seoul is served by both Korean Air and Asiana. That market cannot handle three carriers. Los Angeles-Seoul is a whoping 7 flights a day with two Airbus 380's. There is absolutely no room for another carrier there.

I will say, I have heard the rumor that AA was looking at DFW-Seoul since I moved to Dallas 3 years ago. I have never once heard any rumor that AA was looking at Chicago-Seoul.

According to this, American Airlines might be starting a new direct flight from DFW to Bogota by next year.

Quote:
Fort Worth Star-Telegram: American signs codeshare agreements with LATAM

In a move to bolster its Latin America and South America presence, American Airlines announced on Monday that it has signed codeshare agreements with LATAM Group's TAM Airlines and LAN Colombia.

The Fort Worth-based carrier added that it will add a new Dallas/Fort Worth to Bogota, Colombia route in late 2013 and new service from Miami to Curitiba and Porto Alegre, Brazil.

"As we continue to expand our presence in Latin America, the new routes to Brazil and Colombia are a direct response to the increasing customer demand for travel between the U.S. and Latin America," said American's chief commercial officer Virasb Vahidi.

American previously had a codeshare agreement with LAN as the airline is part of its Oneworld alliance but did not have a codeshare agreement with TAM. LAN and TAM completed their merger to create LATAM earlier this year.

Phase 1 of Terminal A overhaul opens at DFW Airport next month


http://aviationdaily.wordpress.com/2012/03/

Quote:
The first phase of the $2 billion DFW Airport renovation should open next month, offering new dining and shopping options and a more modern look. “At the time that we open at [Terminal A,] Phase 1, there will be a bunch of new concessions, new restaurants, new stores and stuff that open along with it, and you’ll be able to get a good flavor of how the new DFW will look as we renovate every terminal,” said David Magaña, airport spokesman. Geppeto’s Toy Store and Vino Volo, a wine bar, are two new stores in Terminal A. Two new restaurants are The Salt Lick Bar-B-Que and Qdoba Mexican Grill.

By the end of the project in 2017, the changes will include better parking and the ability to ride the DART Orange Line from Terminal A to Dallas.

Terminal work and rail

Each terminal renovation costs about $500 million and takes about a year, Magaña said, although Phase 1 of Terminal A took a little longer.



Work on Terminals A and C is being done consecutively because American Airlines uses them for mainline jet service. The other terminals will be done concurrently. The renovations will be primarily of infrastructure such as the heating, cooling and plumbing systems.

Also new: Starting in late 2014, passengers will be able to take the DART Orange Line from Dallas into the airport. “The station is being built now,” Magaña said. “We’ll build the station and then the tracks will come in and then the train.” The airport is constructing the station, but DART will build the rails and supply the train, he said.

Flight paths

The airport did extensive runway rehab for about 45 days last year, altering flight paths and prompting complaints from Southlake residents about airplane noise.

Magaña said the work generally is done on a rolling schedule as needed and as weather permits. “It’s only on those days when we’re doing a bit of rehab on a runway, and it’s only if the weather prompts a change in the flight direction, so those two things have to come together,” he said. There are no current plans for major runway rehab work, Magaña said.

Parking

The parking garages at the airport also will be updated, adding spaces and integrating technology that indicates where parking is available. The section of the garage that corresponds with the gates in Phase 1 will open as terminal renovations are complete.

I don't know what exactly "ethnic" travel and "ethnic" carrier mean (4th paragraph)...if he's trying to say diaspora or expat or immigrant communities, then let's just say so. Lord, that word "ethnic" is so horribly patronizing. Americans are just as "ethnic" to Koreans, as Koreans are to Americans.

That being said, in case anyone is absolutely baffled why there's a Dallas-Seoul flight with Korean Airlines, although justme goes into quite a bit of detail, the answer is very simple and obvious:
  1. Dallas is the USA's 4th-largest metropolitan area
  2. Korean's hub at ICN (Seoul) is at a near-perfect geographic position to act as a hub between North America and East Asia. NRT (Tokyo) is only slightly more perfect. So, Seoul competes with Tokyo (and increasingly Beijing) in this regard. The European equivalents of these cities are London, Paris, Frankfurt, and Amsterdam.
  3. At its Seoul hub, Korean offers travelers from Dallas connections to several Asian cities, including Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Taipei, Manila, Busan, and several other cities, and of course, Seoul itself is a major destination.

For whatever reason people want to travel...Koreans or Chinese or Thais visiting family back home, or Americans in Asia doing their "ethnic" travel and coming back home to Texas for Christmas...or tourists to China or Thailand...or wannabe journalists that have nothing better to do and want to go over to the Yalu River and sneak into North Korea...and -of course- business travelers, whether they work for Samsung or another corporation...aaallll these people can be served by KAL through its hub at ICN.

Doubtful they'll change anything at DFW as a result of the merger. It's the smaller cities that are US Airways' hubs (Phoenix and Charlotte) that should worry. And also Philadelphia because it's so close to New York.

They're not going to take flights away from Dallas and give them to Phoenix or Charlotte. Dallas is too big and important, and also has great geography. If anything, they'll take flights and/or seat-capacity away Phoenix and Charlotte, and give them to Dallas, Miami, and Los Angeles. Just as United (after buying Continental) took flights from Cleveland, and gave them to Chicago and New York. Cincinnati also suffered after Delta merged with Northwest and gained a much more important hub at Detroit (in addition to its existing important hubs in New York and Atlanta).

I would not expect American Airlines to take too much seat capacity from Charlotte given that CLT is a high O/D market for business travelers and it fills an important gap in the merged airline's route network, unlike Memphis or Cincinnati which were in close proximity to Atlanta and Detroit.

Also Miami has relatively poor domestic connections compared with Charlotte due to it's location, so I would not expect more domestic US flights to be rerouted there.
