Im not seeing the demand for Central America or Colombia but I fully expect AA to add PHL to MEX, PAP, KIN, POS as well as additional frequency to SDQ over the next few years. PHL has the demographics to make these flights work... I don't see any of those happening besides MEX. markets are tiny. PA...Jump to post
what a ridiculous thread this is. AA has plenty of share at LGA and it will remain that way. their investments in the flagship lounges, transcon services, and improved LHR service from JFK balk at this insanity
AA/DL coexist fine at LGA. that's not going to change.
I could see this once they receive their A321LR's, which will free up some A330s. this is likely. plus hopefully by then, they'll be partnered with AA Recent talk is that they’re sticking with the UA partnership and not joining the BA/AA joint venture. highly unlikely Willie Walsh will continue to ...Jump to post
What about DFW-TLV? That might work, because there is a large Jewish population in the Dallas area. And no one has ever flown DFW-TLV nonstop. But it won't be the first route to TLV American will launch. First would be PHL, as pointed above since no airline has yet ever flown PHL-TLV nonstop, or ma...Jump to post

MAD deserves a mention in this thread as an “outside the big 4” mention. Terminal 4 is pretty incredible.
if AA/AS can codeshare on that PHX route, that’s a brilliant strategyJump to post
EK will give tough competition to european carriers like AF in the connection traffic to Asia from SCL, not to mention the US airlines and even QF. US airlines never stood a chance on Asia-South America to begin with because nobody has the patience to go through US customs just to connect back out ...Jump to post
RDU-PHX for AA is a logical add. good frequency to SAN and SJC, two markets which no one seems daring enough to jump in nonstop for whatever reason. let alone the countless other smaller markets that would now have better frequency/positioning than DFW and CLT can provide. I could see frequencies/up...Jump to post
why would they announce this so far in advance? this is like QR announcing LAS
what's the advantage going to be over UA? timing?
who knows how legitimate this actually is but the vast majority of US-MXP demand is from JFK and MIA. how these money-is-not-an-obstacle airlines are starting all these routes is a bit mindbogglingJump to post
.Down scaling from 777-200ER to 787-9 is a good idea in a declining market. Asia is still booming and TATL also 4% / yr, additional frequencies aren't for free at all. I hate to burst your bubble, but the average capacity per flight on transpacific flights has been steadily decreasing over the past...Jump to post
Isnt AA down to LHR only from ORD?? They have some bigger problems than gate contracts CDG, FCO, BCN, VCE, DUB, MAN are seasonal europe routes. NRT, PEK, PVG are year round asia routes. i think their presence is just fine. IB serves MAD out of the AA terminal and AY does HEL as well. i’d say OW’s p...Jump to post
The busiest airport in the world is without power, this is going to cause a massive disruption. Would be the same if this was UA/AA/BA/EK etc or IAH/EWR/DFW/DXB/LHR etc. Humorous to read some commentary. If you don't want to connect through Atlanta, you have plenty of other options. BA/LHR and EK/D...Jump to post
It will cost them a lot more though between fare class remappings and a more expensive special prorate agreement. As others have stated, I doubt we see this route in 2019 The belly does well. Don't count the route out! People have been saying this route is going to end before it even started and it...Jump to post
Does that mean AA is losing WestJet? What about WestJet's relationship to other OW's partners such as BA and QF? The AA-WS relationship was recently trimmed back, likely in anticipation of this DL deal. yikes. Wonder what AA will do (or more likely,won’t) do in Canada now. AA announced a lot of can...Jump to post
Watching 4 New York from the Delta Skyclub at EWR. Their giving regular updates on this breaking story.

damn, shot to S7. at least they still work with BA and IB
not surprised to see increases between the two countries. last time I was at NRT I saw a lot of people flying to VVO
I don't know why this forum is so focused on MIA-Tokyo lately when MIA-CPT is a far more likely proposition soon
yes, JNB is the bigger market but there's a strong possibility AA will start MIA-CPT with a 772 soon...the demand is finally there
West Coast-KEF is already served. The catchment is going to be limited to the Midwest. Already served by whom? There will be a good amount of people who would rather travel by AA rather than WOW. Folks in places like Los Angeles (with a large OneWorld frequent flier base) will probably be very draw...Jump to post
This is not a bright move on AA's part. How do they think this will go? They can offer no connections out of KEF so they are relying 100% on O/D. How much demand do they believe there is? Unlikely it is very much. And of that demand they will have the highest fares. They cannot compete in price and...Jump to post

And PHL-AMS Ah, yes - forgot about AMS, too. As presently loaded, AA's S18 767 longhaul schedule requires about five aircraft each at MIA (CNF, GYE, MVD) and PHL (AMS, BUD, LIS, PRG, ZRH), plus there is still a smattering of inter-hub 767 flying (MIA-DFW, MIA-JFK, etc.) and also two 767s dedicated ...Jump to post
Anybody have the PDEWs for CLT-KEF? Is it even 15? AA can connect any city in the southeast (and is decently placed for connections from the west) to Iceland, a rapidly growing tourist market, via CLT. local demand has little to do with a seasonal leisure route like this. if we were talking a year ...Jump to post

Their fleet is fully committed. Also, these flights are largely full of Germans originating in Germany. AA has a terrible point of sale presence in Germany. It wouldnt work.

AA really ceding MCI. first LGA and now LAX. 2 very important destinations My thoughts also. A little surprising.

what forum am I reading?
I'm pretty glad to see Dusseldorf in the mix for now. hopefully Munich is the next city in Europe they go for.
Brussels, Copenhagen and Dublin. Other than Guinness (which is a poor quality mass produced beer IMO), Dublin is not really famous for beer, but it would make a sensible guess as a potential new CX destination. you can hate Guinness (I don't drink, so no opinion) but to say Dublin isn't famous for ...Jump to post
I had my money on Munich, as this would have been a logical choice given its recent partnership with LH, and CX being one of the only key Asian players not serving this beautiful city. That said, the CX secrets forum has debunked that it will not be Munich. So my money now is on Dublin, Brussels an...Jump to post
