No offense, but it makes Charlotte look like a really hokey backwater to get excited over international flights. Cities like NY, SF, LA, etc don't measure their status accordingly. Moreover, these are US Air flights. It's not like Air France, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, TAM, Emirates, etc. will start flying to Charlotte.

It's all about economics. If you don't think this that non-stop flights are big deal, especially internationally, to businesses and economies, then you're living in a different world.

Yeah, but Atlanta, Minneapolis, Detroit, Philadelphia, Nashville, New Orleans, Portland, Oklahoma City, Austin, Kansas City, Salt Lake City, Cleveland, Cinncinati, Pittsburgh, Columbus, etc cant compare neither. Does that make us all backwater? Pittsburg subsidized a flight to Europe on a small aircraft... Is that Podunk town?

Houston, Chicago, DC, Dallas, Boston and Miami can compare to NYC, LA, San Fran in the international flights department.

It's worth mentioning there have been flights to and from most these countries and Baltic countries for a long time. They are just expensive and rare..

I've seen flights from Estonia and Latvia directly to Charlotte before but they were crazy expensive.. Baltic countries are extremely hard to get to and from without going through Atlanta, NY, and Chicago..
