AA 757 Trans-atlantic Service?

Why doesn't AA operate more service to Europe from JFK, IAD, EWR, BOS, and MIA with their 757 fleet? The 757 seems affordable to fly for AA. The BOS-MAN 757 service did very well this summer.

Wasn't AA using a one class service on the BOS-MAN service?

Would AA use a 757 from JFK or MIA to go to BCN?

JFK-BCN could be possible, MIA-BCN would be too long for the 757 I think


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

I think TW use to fly JFK-BCN with a 757, so AA could definitely!

I think AA could/should fly into DUB and SNN on 757 from JFK and BOS!

GLA-BOS is now unlikely to appear. Decision early next week.

I'm too old to fly any single aisle plane over the Atlantic - they are bad enough on a 2 - 3 hour flight unless I get bumped up to a better seat.

Ken777 - would you care to explain what the difference is, from a passenger point of view? I've flown the CO 757 services in Y many times, and fly BA 777 / 747s every few weeks transatlantic, from a passenger perspective the service you get is identical regardless of how big the a/c is - in fact on the 757s you often get looked after better as there are less people! But the seats, legroom, etc. are not affected at all by the a/c size!

Star_world, thank you so much for pointing out the idiocy of people who think the number of aisles affect the size of the seat etc. People who actually fly on real planes know the size of the plane has no bearing on the size of their seat and their personal comfort. In fact a small plane is quicker to board and much less hassle at baggage claim etc. People who have never flown on a 757 or a 747 or a 777 don't the difference between them, or that there isn't any difference from a comfort point of view unless you enjoy a shoving match at the carousel with 399 other grumpy and tired travellers.

Star_world and Cedarjet thanks for the input, could not have said it better myself. What do people think flew across the pond prior to us having wide bodies????

Let me guess, it's going to be BOS-EDI instead!? I knew it! j/k  Big grin

I agree with Star_World in wondering how Ken777 correlates his age to the number of aisles in the aircraft to his ability to fly.

Scottish Laddie,

There will be no AA 757s for Scotland, only Ireland next summer if plans are implemented. Blame the price of oil.

What does my like or dislike for the 757 have to do with future AA routes flown on the 757?  Nuts

Billy, if there is going to be no AA 757, how about NWA?

To get NWA into GLA requires the permission of KLM. They get half of the revenues from the trans Atlantic opertions of NWA. If there is no cannibalisation of their AMS service, then they would look at it. However, their planes are too big and their 757s cannot make it.

DL has not equipped their 757s either, so that only leaves CO and AA really.

DL would use a 763 pressumably. What distance can NWA's 752/3's go and how many are ETOPS certified? Do you know of any more rumours regarding GLA for next Summer? And last but not least, how do you get all this info?

I also don't think the 757 could pull a MIA-BCN. I looked at what they fly outa there and IB is flying a 747-341 in there and then back to Madrid. AA flys the 757 outa there but you connect in JFK and take a IB 747-341 to Madrid again.

I certainly agree that AA could use the 757 on more JFK and BOS routes transatlantically. But MIA to Europe is too long of a reach for the 757...that's not something you want to risk. There is also a great demand for transatlantic traffic. does AA still serve Birmingham, England? Because the 757 could be put to use there...CO flies their 757s there nonstop from EWR. Also, do they still serve Glasgow? Because AA could put their 757s there as well.

Do these 57s still have the more room in Coach class or are they back to the 31" pitch?

The 757s have LRTC, and do not have more room anymore. It has it's standard 166 seats in Main cabin.

TW, operated JFK-LIS-BCN. That is how they routed their BCN flights.

Hopefully AA can start Ireland with a 757, out of JFK, or BOS.
