Etihad Airways to DFW?

Postby Greg on Thu Dec 05, 2013 9:03 am

Thanks to Andrea Ahles at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram for this information: the CEO of Etihad Airways is scheduled to meet with local media in Dallas on December 12th.

So, fair to assume that Etihad will soon announce they will begin service to DFW from their home base of Abu Dhabi (AUH)?

That'll be some serious competition! Because Qatar just announced service to DFW. And Emirates has been in Dallas for over a year. What surprises me is that Royal Jordanian hasn't made an attempt with their a340's into Dalas. Oh well. Lets see what the future beholds

Well, I wouldn't expect the CEO to come out for anything less than a pax service announcement. This would be a move I had expected to happen before QR joined OneWorld, not a week after they announced a DFW route. Although, with the huge amount of connections AA has to offer partners I think literally any OW/partner airline could be profitable flying their own metal to DFW, regardless of regional competition. This will be an anxious week of waiting. Bring on the A345s! Sweet Jebus, that would be a great addition.

There certainly is plenty of new and interesting metal ahead for spotters at DFW. Finally starting to catch up to IAH in terms of foreign carriers, if not frequency.

Well it is 772LR but I'd love to see a 787 subbed in now and then! Of course, who wouldn't?
