It's unlikely that we will ever get a lot of international destinations with service to Delta's hubs in Tokyo and Amsterdam as well as London. With one stopover on United, American, and US Airways pretty much ever major city in the world is accessible to Minneapolis. I'm not too sure that there are many international destinations that could use a direct service to Minneapolis.
That being said, it seems a lot of Minnesotans (and Americans in general) visit France for vacation, and a summer service to Paris could be quite successful.
On another note, if we do expect Terminal 2 to be of any use, we are going to need to figure out a way to allow passengers to travel between the two terminals without exiting and reentering security, in addition to the 5-min walk at both terminals and the train wait.
K, but Salt Lake City is Delta's next International superstar and NOBODY from Europe needs to go to Salt Lake City....so I'm not sure how much that has to do with the international routing by airlines. In fact, I have NO IDEA how airlines decide which cities are going to be international hubs (Detroit is another international superstar, although it makes more sense than Salt Lake....or Denver).
