The following are some of the proposed new direct flights from US to China.
AA is applying for the new direct flight from Dallas (DFW) to Beijing (PEK). Here is the link to sign up for the petition.
Northwest is working on the Detroit (DTW) to Shanghai (PVG) route. Here is the link.
Last but not least, United is bidding on the Washing Dulles (IAD) to Beijing (PEK) route. And here is the link.
You can support them by signing up the petition letter. Only one route will be approved by USDOT next year. Please note I am not advertising for any of the airlines because what I really want is a Saint Louis (STL) to Shanghai route 🙂
