I believe AA moves a lot of cargo on the PHL-SJU segment, back when the 333 (LUS days) operated on the route the belly was always jam packed. The flight had it’s share relaiability issues at times which would trickle on to the European departure bank. I recall the flight always having drama and very...Jump to post
I would take rumors from front line staff around the airport with a huge grain of salt. They are as reliable as flight crew rumors. Next week the person who started this thread most probably will post rumors WN is planning on a major expansion in CLT. It seems every couple of weeks these “rumors” se...Jump to post

Level is starting BCN-JFK in Spring/Summer 2019. That could mean the end of AA's JFK-BCN service. MXP service could end up being moved to PHL, though MXP is really a business, not a leisure heavy route, and for the business traffic between the US and Milan that exists, JFK makes more sense, but AA ...Jump to post
Great predictions. I hope that there is more movement on the BA side of things because long haul connections on BA arriving on any airline other than BA is problematic. As far as Asian routes, I don't think it makes sense for JAL, China Southern, or any other Asian carrier to come to PHL when AA al...Jump to post
I sure do. And I was the first person to report the AA IAD-LHR rumor, it's -highly- credible. I’m assuming the thinking here they want to connect Washington D.C with London on their own metal, but have to use IAD because DCA can’t handle long haul flights? I wonder how this will impact BA’s existin...Jump to post
So regarding th BA/AA JV, it does matter who flies to the EXPs & Concierge key members due to the SWU restrictions, a switch to BA metal means that SWUs can no longer be used... also, mileage upgrades for all levels go out the window....

Are there a lot of Canadians in the Daytona Beach area?

Not the first international flight for DAB, LTU served DAB years ago and while I was in school there Air Canada Jazz operated service from YYZ with the CRJ. When was this for AC? I know they announced but never started YYZ-DAB in 2002 on the CRJ. I could have sworn I saw their airplanes departing D...Jump to post
Doubtful, AA’s footprint as a whole in Argentina is much larger than DL’s. I could see a second ATL-EZE in high season before a Córdoba flight.Jump to post
The 752 has been operating AA685 PHX-DCA-PHX for a long time now and continues into 2019 There have been periods without the 752. They can easily swap to an Airbus or a 737. Going into the summer I believe the 32Es start to operate PHX-DCA alongside the 757. The 32E’s will be a nice addition. My co...Jump to post
Maybe this will allow for CLT DUB and possibly DFW DUB to go year round on AA.Jump to post
They have sufficient winter loads to HNL. I wonder how they would to to OGG or KOA. Do they have anything other than the 77L that can do OGG-MSP? I haven’t looked closely at runway performance numbers for the 332 (though those are pretty heavily utilized). The 333 would have a hard time. OGG gets a...Jump to post
So, AA will be the only airline flying nonstop from GIG to MIA? Seems surprising as only 1 flight a day is operated by AA (during low season), 2 at the moment.Jump to post
I think they originally had ViaAir doing their ground handling and when ViaAir disappeared they had to move to Jetstream who also handles F9. From what I've seen, there are limited bilingual speakers at Jetstream in CLT. I'm sure they are working on adding more, but they were kinds thrown the groun...Jump to post

I may be reading your post incorrectly, but AA has flown PHL-AMS seasonally for quite awhile and continues to do so in 2019.
What Canadian/US stations are they going to keep? It seems like they are cutting many stations heading westbound.Jump to post
I would love to see AA fly DAB DFW, maybe Sat only (E175). It would be the only westbound service. I believe COEX operates DAB IAH for some time.Jump to post
Announced internally for summer 2019, flights go on sale the 17th. Also announced : PHXRDU PHX-RDU is a resumption as well. when did US or AA ever fly PHX/RDU?

I'm a bit surprised I thought Athens would be one of the first to be switched over to a 787 since there's a lot of weight restrictions out of Athens back to Philly on the Airbus.... Putting the 787 on ATH from PHL would be odd, it would be a decrease in seats. The flight is usually jam packed in th...Jump to post
Couple weeks ago we had a MD-80 operate PHL to BDL. Very odd but I'm assuming a sub for an A319 or E190 that went tech. Wow that's pretty cool. Has that happened before where an S80 flies L-US routes because of an airplane going tech? A few years back at the beginning of cross fleeting we had an S8...Jump to post

I believe that PR did a technical stopover from SFO/LAX on the way to MNL maybe 10 years ago. But don't think they could carry passengers.

It would make sense to streamline destinations to one terminal. AA could move JFK and LAX flights to T5 whereas BA could move DFW and ORD to T3. I'd actually advocate BA moving their JFK flights into T3 to really maximise the effective AA/BA "shuttle", possibly with EWR as well. I'd hazar...Jump to post
1 and 30 minutes to turn a 77W at LAX, I see that flight taking a lot of delays. From experience, by the time you land, fight all the alley traffic at that time at LAX and get to the gate they will be cutting that time short. At the best of days that will already be an MOGT turn.Jump to post
