    I would guess because it's a more established route and DFW is a OW hub? If VA also ran that flight then there aren't as many Delta connections there as there are AA.

    And if you're connecting to a city anywhere east of mid-continent it's certainly preferable to fly directly into DFW vs. having to transit the west coast. If they do actually initiate the JFK-SYD flight it will be interesting to see how traffic from DFW drops. I live in the southeast US and would certainly rather take the 1.5 hour flight to DFW than having to get to JFK.

    If I had to guess, MidSouth has the right of it. The Qantas flight will benefit from the established OneWorld hub that DFW is. From a OW perspective, it has great connectivity. The other airline alliances don't have that at DFW, making it harder for them to establish a route. Additionally, the location of DFW in the Midwest means if you live in the eastern 2/3 of CONUS, you don't have to use the West Coast hubs. Much prefer DFW to either JFK or LAX.
