So, right now possible new routes based on what massport wants: ICN, DEL, MXP

Possible new routes based on airlines expressing interest/intent or studying feasibility: SAL, CTU, YYC, TPE
The SAL route could be announced any time now since the CEO of Avianca said its going to be launched in their inflight magazine.

Sichuan Airlines has obtained rights to serve Boston-Chengdu (CTU) 3x weekly. The funny thing about this one is that there were hints of this online since December and no one saw it.

Possible May 2018 start date but translation may be off here though they loaded Chengdu-Zurich a couple of weeks ago with a late March start.

I don't think this CTU flights steals it just stimulates what you could call "Chinese government subsidized tourism to Boston"

True - almost all of these new international flights (except for seasonal weeklies like Barbados, Liberia-CR) are to hubs. CTU is a hub for Sichuan and its subsidiary Chengdu Airlines.
