I posted a few days ago, that AA is supposed to start SFO-LHR flights as well ... no one wanted to believe me ... guess we'll soon see.
What does that have to do with the extra LAX-LHR flights?
Even though the PR came out today, the 2nd daily LAX-LHR flight has been available for booking since October 2003. Not sure where the slot came from, I think it came from O'Hare, which has 4 flights this summer instead of five like last summer.
As for SFO-LHR, I would not hold my breathe for it. SJC-LGW may become a reality.

If AA could do SJC-LGW, take over the SAN-LHR route authority from BA, twice a day from LAX and a SFO-LHR flight, then AA could dominate the California-London market like no other. Just food for thought.

I know when I first transferred to LHR we were told in orientation that during the summer AA and UA both get two roundtrip frequencies. UA used them to boost up to three daily SFO and four daily IAD during the summer of 2001. I assume this is still the case.
The debate continues... Starwood or Hyatt... which is better

It looks like LAX and JFK each gain a flight whereas BOS and ORD each lose a flight.
Thanks for clearing it up. Though, of note, the third BOS-LHR flight did not last. I think it flew for 2-3 weeks at most. The slot went mainly unused last summer. Also, on Saturdays, JFK-LHR has five flights, BOS-LHR has one, and MIA-LHR has two.

Doubled service on LAX-LHR, as well as the addition of SFO-LHR...sounds to me like American is trying to go more head-to-head with United on the LHR routes. Is it possible AA may add HNL-LHR? Also, why do they only serve LGW from DFW, instead of LHR?
