How has this flight been doing thus far? I notice in Flytecomm.com shows that the flight goes on to Orlando after arriving from Shannon, Ireland. Is that the same plane? Do they tow the plane from Terminal E over to AA's domestic terminal, or is it a whole different plane? I would suspect the latter, as the SNN-BOS plane probably sits at E and awaits the flight back the other way.

From what I know AA are doing very well on both of their Irish routes, BOS-SNN and ORD-DUB, actually think the yields are slightly better on the BOS-SNN route thought I stand to be corrected. There was a rumour that this would be upgraded to a 763, but dunno how true that one is.


Next Flights: EI DUB-LHR A320, BA LHR-SFO B744, UA SFO-LAS A320, BA LAS-LHR B744, EI LHR-DUB A320

AA's two new Irish routes have apparently both been performing very well. While, as always, loads are no indication of profitability, from what I hear both flights have been going out full every night.

As to an equipment upgrade on BOS-SNN, I doubt it, as it would mean the introduction of J class into a market that doesn't require it, and would dilute the density of Y on a much larger plane (even if there are only about 25-30 more seats, all of them would be J). AA is desperately short of 767 capacity right now, but if a BOS flight were to be upgraded, I would bet it would be MAN before SNN.

I think a 767-300 would be fine in the high season, a 757 all the other months. Maybe that will be the 2006 plan.

They will not be upgrading BOS-SNN to a 767.

The flight has been doing well, but that is largely thanks to the fact it is operating with a single class, 188 seat 757. Easy to fill, easy to make money on. There is no point putting a 767 on the route, which would subtract Y seats, add J seats that would be more difficult to fill, and, with AA's tight use of aircraft, take a 767 away from another route that needs it.

Quoting ChrisNH (Thread starter):

Actually, they either tow the plane to Terminal B or (if needed) over to the hangar. They get those planes out about an hour after arrival. Don't know for a fact if they use the same planes for the rest of the flight, but I can always find out. There was a time when 108/109 to/from LHR connected with DFW on a 738, so I'm not really sure.



Don't put me on A7! I got out of the airport, so why send me back?
