I was thinking the same thing when I saw the results. Since Austin already has a Europe connection, I don't think Paris would be next (at least I hope not). That doesn't mean it wouldn't ever happen, of course...just not next. I would think Asia would be next because of the tech industry. Of all the options, Seoul or Tokyo are probably best...though I still prefer a China connection (selfishly).
Digatisdi, aside from your admittedly selfish reasons, haha, is there any reason to bring a South American city on as a direct connection? I'm not sure of business connections to the region from Austin in particular.
