But, remember: AA will still operate DFW-GRU (Sao Paulo), which has a significantly larger share of airline services than GIG (Rio). Maybe what AA should do next is to strengthen its core domestic routes even further to allow better connections and provide more convenience for passengers...

It is just a rumor... Never heard of that route pair before too. And AA could use a B77W on that route since it operates a number of it already. I would be pleasantly surprised, though, if AA could order even more of that aircraft and do more long-hauls out of DFW.

Yes, I agree with DFW

I guess AA will just focus on connecting GIG to the US via MIA and JFK.
It is possible that the DFW-GIG route was axed because of the recession in Brazil. If Brazil's economy takes off again I think American Airlines might reinstate that route in the near future (I must say though honestly I am surprised that CLT-GIG was not axed first).

Do you think other carriers will operate the DFW-Brazil service, especially that carriers like TAM and Azul are looking at expanding their bases?

Well anything is possible I guess? I know TAM already codeshares with American Airlines so they might decide to fly the DFW-GIG route themselves although I think it is unlikely at the moment.

Etihad Airways to touch down for the first time at DFW Airport on Wednesday

Quote:
The first flight connecting Abu Dhabi and Dallas/Fort Worth is in the air right now, heading to Texas.

On Wednesday, Etihad Airways launched its nonstop service between the United Arab Emirates and DFW. It will have three flights a week until next spring when it will increase to daily flights.

Etihad is using a Boeing 777-200LR on the route with eight first class seats, 40 business class seats and 177 seats in economy. Passengers on the flight will not have to enter through U.S. customs as they pass through a pre-clearance facility in Abu Dhabi. As a result, if they have a domestic connecting flight out of DFW, they can head straight to their connecting gate once they land.

With the addition of Etihad, DFW becomes one of only four airports in the U.S. that has all three Gulf carriers operating flights to the Middle East. Emirates Airline and Qatar Airways both have daily flights to Dubai and Doha respectively. Earlier this fall, Emirates increased its capacity on its Dubai route with the use of a double-decker Airbus A380 on the route.

If you want to follow the inaugural Etihad Airways flight, which left a couple of hours late, click here. The flight is expected to land at 5:27 p.m. CST.

That's wonderful news... it comes a few weeks after Etihad launched a daily nonstop service to San Francisco, and I will have to look at how it goes somehow.

By the way, check your PM. I have sent something to you, and look at your name and standing too.

Dallas News: Southwest Airlines gaining two Dallas Love Field gates

Quote:
Southwest Airlines said Friday that it is gaining control of two more gates at Dallas Love Field and will be expanding the number of cities it flies to from the city-owned airport.

The Dallas-based carrier said it has subleased two gates from United Airlines, giving it 18 of the 20 gates at the airport’s one terminal.

Southwest said it will use the gates to start Dallas flights to nine cities in April, naming Memphis, Milwaukee and Seattle among the cities to get nonstop service. It’ll also add flights to cities already served out of Love Field.

Southwest said the U.S. Department of Justice has “reviewed and cleared” the transaction, and the city of Dallas “also has approved the sublease.”

United will continue using the gates until March 16. It intends to leave Love Field and serve area passengers through its gates at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

The announcement comes as major competitor Delta Air Lines has been fighting to get a permanent foothold at Love Field. Delta operates five daily departures to Atlanta from the airport under an agreement with United.

Southwest spokesman Brad Hawkins said the carrier “will continue the current accommodation that United made for Delta, which runs through July 6.”

Last spring, Southwest, which had rights to 16 of the 20 gates, and Delta lobbied hard to get two gates that American Airlines had to give up as part of an antitrust settlement with the Justice Department.

I flew this very aircraft, (Post # 157) VH-OEE from Sydney to DFW in April 2014. It was a great flight. Sure miss seeing the Qantas B747 in Dallas. The A380 might be bigger, but not as classy.

With all the increased flights being added to DFW as well as flights added because of American's recent merger I heard that DFW may rise in the rankings to be the 2nd busiest airport in the world. Is this true and has anyone else heard about this?

With the rapid growth passenger numbers and aircraft movements at airports in China, India, Dubai, etc I would say the chances of that happening are nil. As the recent merger between United/Continental and Delta/Northwest have proven in the past typically the merged airline will trim any excess capacity which means less flights (and more profit) overall.
