Chicago says ‘hot dog’ to Vienna21 June 2007
Chicago, which already loved the hot dogs, seems to have warmed up to the original Vienna.
Austrian Airlinesâ€™ non-stop service between Oâ€™Hare and this classic European city, just launched May 29, is already maintaining an 80 percent flight load, airline officials said at a news conference Wednesday in the Drake Hotel.
“Even from the start, it was a very good load,” said Rudolf Mertl, executive vice president of network and sales. “It normally takes a little bit longer.”
Austrian Airlines, a member of the Star Alliance, flies daily non-stops except Mondays between the two cities. Summer fares average about $1,100.
