Etihad bailing in March

Don't have a link but they are ending the route in March.

Kind of surprising since it looked like they were doing ok but maybe the fares were too low. I always thought that eventually one of the ME 3 would get squeezed out.

Well that stinks, just when things were looking for DFW, new routes, carriers, now EY calls it quits. Well perhaps EK might bring back the Whale. I agree with Frisco, one o the ME3 were likely to bail at some point.

Always knew this was going to happen at one point.
Hopefully the a380 will return or Air India will decide to compete again ME wit htheir direct to India, as thats most of the ME traffic.

I think the end of AA codeshare did this route in. Also, just too much lift to ME. I don't see Air India starting DFW, despite what the CEO said off hand once. Maybe IAH with Star Alliance. Plenty of way to India from DFW on EK, QR, LH, etc.
