Finnair considering DFW

Postby ZuluLima on Sun Mar 02, 2008 10:57 pm

Evidently Finnair are looking at both DFW and IAH as possible routes from Finland to connect India and the US. I'd say they would be more likely to use a more north/east oriented airport, but if they truly want a Texas destination, we'll get it based on shorter flights and more importantly, OneWorld connections with AA. Thoughts?

I would love to see their MD-11s pulling into Terminal D! I know Lufthansa does quite well on the Indian connecting traffic, and I would be surprised if KLM doesn't get good loads doing the same.

Of course, with the airport offering free landing fees, if I am not mistaken, for a year, this might just entice Finnair to give it a shot! Time will tell.

OK, here's the original source of the rumor: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Finnair_eyes_India-US_route/articleshow/2831607.cms

Contains slightly more info, but more importantly a credible source.

This has a very remote chance of happening. But then again Finnair is a member of 1World.

Very cool at the possibility of seeing Finnair at DFW, I remember seeing their DC-8s, DC10s and MD11s at JFK, quite often. I am a little annoyed to see that IAH is mentioned once again.
