Earlier this week the Houston Chronicle released info on Singapore Airlines starting NON-Stop service between DME. (Moscow and IAH)
"Singapore Airlines (SQ) will launch four weekly flights between IAH and Moscow (DME) beginning March 20, 2008, the Houston Chronicle reported Thursday. The flights will continue to Singapores Changi International Airport (SIN) and will be operated with Boeing 777-300 equipment. "
As far as I know, IAH is the second airport in the country that would have direct service to Moscow. ATL is the other non-stop city.
To top it off, Emirates is serving IAH from DXB currently 3x’s a week.
How long will these 2 last? Since CI (China Airlines) and PK (PIA - Pakistan International Airlines) bailed out of IAH.
