This is truly some great news. DFW is getting some love from Europe. The Icelandic Low Cost Carrier has announced that they will fly 3 days a week and flights will start on May 24th. This route will be operated on an Airbus A330 aircraft. Unfortunately the A321 LR can fly this route but will not enter the airlines fleet before the launch of the services. As of right now this route seems to have had a successful launch as the 2 months of flights have aldready beeen sold out and the route was launched yesterday.
Here are my sources
Also in the airline news at DFW Qatar Airways plans to switch aircraft to the DFW route with an Airbus A350 for the month of October but will switch back to the 77W later. I think that Qatar wants to see if the switch will be profitable as the A350 is cheaper to fly but has less capacity. We think Qatar will make a decision at the end of October on this
