Prior to the alliance perhaps but I doubt it'll happen now with QF/EK in bed together.

Delta goes crazy about Etihad/Air Serbia deal

Delta unhappy with Etihad/Air Serbia codeshare
08.10.2013

Delta Air Lines has asked the US Department of Transportation to reject a planned codeshare request between Etihad Airways and Air Serbia to the United States. Air Serbia plans to place its codes on Etihad’s services from Abu Dhabi to New York, Chicago and Washington. Delta says “the proposed codeshare routes are irrational and do not serve the public interest”. It adds, “While Delta believes that codeshare arrangements are typically in the public interest where they increase opportunities for travel and expand air service networks for the benefit of consumers, the codeshare services proposed by Jat and Etihad are not in the public interest because they have no market or consumer service based rationale and would only create confusion and complexity for consumers”.

Delta Air Lines, which is the world’s busiest airline, also says, “Currently, there is robust competition for travel between Belgrade and destinations in the United States via European hubs, where convenient, non-circuitous codeshare and interline connections are available. Jat already codeshares with six European airlines that connect on to the U.S, and has interline agreements with dozens of other airlines with transatlantic service. At least eight different transatlantic carriers serve Belgrade. For example, connecting services between Belgrade and Chicago via Amsterdam, Munich, Vienna, or Frankfurt, involve journeys of approximately 5.000 miles. By contrast, a routing from Belgrade to Chicago via Abu Dhabi is nearly twice as long: approximately 9.640 miles. Such an extremely circuitous itinerary would add nearly 5.000 miles to a consumer’s journey from Belgrade to the United States.

The American airline also believes the Department should reject the codeshare request on the basis that both Etihad and Air Serbia (Jat Airways) are state owned companies and are heavily subsidised adding that “both Jat and Etihad have benefitted from the direct infusion of government capital and Etihad in particular has benefitted from unfair tax advantages, subsidies for fuel and airport fees, and sizeable government investments in infrastructure”. Delta adds that Jat and Etihad have mischaracterised Etihad’s ownership and effective control of Jat, which is “significantly more extensive than suggested”.

Did not know Delta was so much concerned about passengers!! I do not see that concern for passengers in their air fares which are "irrational and do not serve the public interest”!!!

And Delta never benefited from bankruptcy. That never happened.

UAE’s Etihad to buy five long-range Boeing 777s from Air India

Quote:
Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways will purchase five Boeing 777-200 LR aircraft from Air India to service its upcoming Los Angeles route.

The deal to acquire the jets, which are currently the longest range passenger aircraft in operation, was agreed following the signing of a letter of intent in Mumbai earlier this week. The aircraft have an average age of six years.

Etihad did not release financial details regarding the transaction.

The aircraft are due to be delivered to Etihad from the beginning of 2014 and will be refitted in a three-class configuration. Etihad will receive the first 777 in April next year, with its service to Los Angeles beginning on June 1.

If any of those airlines were to fly to Mexico City, it would be either:

- use their B777-200LR aircraft (hopefully nonstop, but I don't know if there could be weight penalties); or

- make a stopover somewhere, but hopefully not in the US (e.g. Paris, Madrid, Rome, or Barcelona)

Maybe a next destination would be SFO, especially that LAX and SFO hold two "different" markets.

That is strange that none of the ME airlines have expressed interest in serving ATL. Delta does ATL-DXB-ATL with a 777. Delta would be off that route in a heart beat because EK has a way better product than Delta. Plenty of connecting opportunities in ATL. I do however think that it is only a matter of time that one of the three middle eastern airlines will serve ATL. Lets go EK!

The big issue when you serve ATL would be: with which airline and routes would you want to apply the Middle Eastern airline code to for Delta, especially that ATL is Delta's main hub? Would you rather see EK codeshare with Delta on a route like Atlanta-Houston (where Houston already has an EK flight) or Atlanta-Minneapolis or even Atlanta-New York/La Guardia? Or would you rather see EY or QR do that job of codesharing with DL?

One would be fooled thinking ATL is a have to fly there airport when looking at the numbers. Like you already mentioned it's Delta's main hub and they're the one's who give ATL most of the business. All in all there are a hand full of airlines that only fly there cause it's really not a good original destination airport.
