    Curious to see how the president reacts if at all.

      No doubt that the US3 will appeal to the isolationist rhetoric. Definitely will be interesting to see how that plays out.

      Agree; Boeing will suffer. Wonder if the president will make the US airlines order Boeing(through terrors) DL will love that.

      I thought the president didn’t like Boeing…

      Why won’t the US3 compete in the market? UniCal already has a EWR domicile, AA and DL have JFK.

      UA and DL compete seasonally. Demand to Greece swings wildly between the summer tourism season and the rest of the year. And none of the US3 would bother to compete to DXB because the numbers just don’t work.

      Basically there’s not a market there? Well, let them have it, sounds like route can only handle one airline.

    interesting news. ex-ATH fares tend to be cheap to begin with. Might make some interesting premium fares worth positioning in ATH.

    This is a completely different animal than MXP-JFK. That one is year-round daily nonstop from 4 incumbent carriers, while ATH-NYC is barely summer seasonal on 2 carriers. Apples to oranges in terms of expected level of US3 anger.

    The route is completely unserved by any carrier in winter, so I don’t see the reason why they have the right to be upset at all.

    Supreme leader trump will build another wall to stop this new threat.

    As far as not liking Boeing, as soon as Boeing’s production is outsourced to China (same factory that builds his clothes lines) the supreme leader will like Boeing again.
