EK 2 return 380, NONSTOP DFW-India- Turkish Air to DFW?

Hey So just curious and want to hear everyone views
Which one of these do you think will likely happen at DFW Next?
Could we see a returning of the Whale with EK? AA juyst dropped its codeshare with EY and Emirates could pull it to be more competitive with Qatar

I know DFW has been wanting a direct flight to India for the longest,
Do you think Etihad's exit might be the way in for AI or maybe even AA to launch service to India?
I know Delta is considering India service and AA is always growing. They could always jump on that market. I know previously things were't well between ORD-DEL but lets keep in mind AA had new aircrafts and uses 787's on Asian Routes

I read awhile back DFW had an expansion in mind and Istanbul was one of the cities they wanted
I also know that turkish is planning on expanding their network especially after the new airport.....

These are are hypothetical but possible let me know your thoughts :)

Not sure about the 380, but the other two are not likely. First, the Middle Eastern carriers have a chokehold on the India traffic. Price is a very strong selling point and American can’t match their prices.

And with regard to Easton bowl, highly unlikely. Turkish Airlines is a star alliance carrier, and they already have a flight to Houston too.

The nature of these alliances is such that it is not very common for us to get flights from international carriers that are not part of one world.
