Can AA really support using a 767 and two 777 on this route? It just seems like much oversupply! Is BA adding flights?

Yes it can be supported during the busy summer season (June-Sept) and winter (dec-jan)...for other times of the year, I think that one B 767 frequency will be eliminated. However if BA is dropping DFW altogether (which isnt likely) then 3 freq's is fine due to extensive BA/IB codesharing.

Thanks for the Info! BA has one daily flight using 777 this Summer, so AA is trying to maximize the hub "power" of DFW it would seem.

This is replacing the STL-LGW flight.
The final STL-LGW non-stop was today (31 Oct). The aircraft returns to Dallas tomorrow morning, beginning the third daily DFW-LGW.

What does this have to do with DFW-LGW?

BA is not going to exit the Dallas market, as they are not allowed to codeshare with AA on North Atlantic routes.

AA also has a 1-stop (in ORD) 777 flight to LHR from DFW. I imagine that AA gets pretty good yields on the London flights. It wouldn't be a shocker if the third flight was dropped during the winter months though.

BA does well at DFW all year. They somehow do better than LH, which is pretty impressive considering the amount of connections from FRA compared to Gatwick.



America's chickens are coming home to rooooost!

This is actually a great move for American. A very large percentage of AA´s pax on STL-LGW were connecting from other cities. With the downgrading of the STL hub, the yields on the flight would have diminished. At the same time, simply eliminating the flight would cause a significant loss in revenue. By transferring the flight to DFW, AA can keep these connecting pax on AA and not lose them to another airline.


"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!
