I'm not sure about this, but the additional LHR flight may be part of the restructuring of the STL hub. After November or so, AA won't be flying any international routes out of STL. Some of the LGW flights are shifting to DFW, but some may be going to MIA as well via LHR.

It is winter only. AA has done this in the past. Sadly, MIA-LHR is only going to be 9x a week instead of 14x it was last year. Probably because there is a lot of extra trans-Atlantic capacity this winter...LH to MUC, LY to TLV, aAY to HEL, and AZ upgrading to 777s. The demand is there to fill two daily AA 777s, but its a much smarter move for them to perserve the yield.
