Chances of Etihad,Qatar, Malaysia, Cathay, to DFW????

Postby DFW4ever on Sat Feb 02, 2013 12:29 am

So this year what do u think are the chances for DFW to get any of these airlines. Personally I like Etihad coming to Dallas over any middle eastern carrier. And due to IAH-PEK route DFW might compete for DFW-PEK or maybe get Cathay to come to DFW with a DFW-HKG route. What do you guys think?

I think probably zero for Malaysia... as for Etihad and Qatar, would be nice, but perhaps the daily Emirates flight is enough lift to the Middle East. DFW-HKG on Cathay would be nice, but again, is there enough traffic to sustain? Or is it easier to route via LAX?

I think 0% chance of Malaysian, before OW they couldn't even support a daily LAX. So, I see no way a DFW will even work. With regards to Qatar, I say 100%. 787 would fit perfectly into the market, and from what I hear EK, is getting ready to start a double daily. If QR can't start a flight before EK then a yes, if EK and AA work a deal for code sharing, then no. Cathay 50/50 with AA possibly starting it. I personally see CX taking the DFW and AA picking up an LAX or ORD from CX. Remember AA is shuffling 777's to HKG for heavy maintenance, and how much is that costing to shuttle an empty 777 to HKG from NRT.

Qantas seems to do ok with daily from Sydney. I suspect the DFW-HKG route would be busy also.

Etihad--- 0%
Qatar-- 80%
Malaysia- 0%
Cathay- 50%

AA to HKG- 90%

my 2 cents.
