LAX-TPE nonstop with LAX departure in late night, early morning arrival into TPE and return to LAX with early morning arrival. This will make southeast Asia travel more seamless without long layover at ICN in early morning and mediocre KE lounges .

Hopefully some codeshares with China Airlines as well.

YQR to ANYWHERE direct to the US

Delta used to fly from YQR-MSP twice daily, but discontinued all flights from Regina, SK a few years ago. I gather the small minded airport director there thought they could raise fees and push Delta to comply. Delta just said "bye", and discontinued operations there. (The airport director is gone now!)
Their codeshared partner, WestJet, flies to the major hubs in Canada where I could connect to Delta flights, but the total trip always uses up pretty much the whole day. So I've been forced to fly Air Canada (growl) for my business flights.
DELTA, PLEASE REINSTATE FLIGHTS FROM REGINA YQR...MSP would be nice.

ATL-LAN, more frequency on MSP-LAN, or ABQ-DTW. I just want getting from LANL to FRIB to not be a 13 hour nightmare.

An ATL-KEF flight would be a nice addition

Thatís some hilarious alphabet soup; I have a friend who works at LANL and still didnít work it out until googling ďFRIB airport codeĒ resulted in the accelerator. 😂

Myself, Iíve been to Bangalore three times in the last year and especially with the demise of Jetís capacity to Europe Iíd like a direct flight from LAX or at least a trans-Pac route.

FI already had a ton of flights, then WOW added even more, Iceland was dramatically overserved. That might change now with the demise of WOW, but it's also a highly seasonal leisure market. I doubt there is enough business travel to fill the front profitably, especially when the price in Y was dramatically depressed with 2 carriers serving a country who's entire population is less than 350,000.

Wow, this is up there with LAX-ORD in the "I can't believe DL doesn't fly this". But they'd be the 5th airline on BOS-DEN so I get it.
