Hi!

Can anybody tell me when AA flew to BHX and where to, the reason being that I found one of their aircraft at Birmingham on Google Earth.

See the aircraft at BHX here

Thanks!

AA flew JFK-BHX for several years, I think they stopped a couple of years ago.

They flew 767s IIRC, I remember going in the late nineties on a sunny day, while the sun reflected off the fuselage straight into the old viewing gallery!

I know they were definitely there in 1997-1998, not sure when they started though.

Chicago, AFAIK.

In the db here there are photos from 1998 to 2002, so that probably covers the time frame.

"Brum to Chicago route back on agenda
Jun 30 2005"

"American Airlines executives are giving serious consideration to re-opening direct daily flights between Birmingham and Chicago, three years after the service was axed."

"AA pulled the plug on its Birmingham flights in October 2002, blaming the business community for not using the service enough. Too many executives preferred to travel to America via Heathrow, it was claimed."

American flew between their huge Chicago O'Hare hub and Birmingham, England from around 1992 up until a few years ago (I think 2002-2003). The flight was operated for years with a 767-200 in the winter, and 767-300 in the summer, but after 9/11, the route could not longer sustain nonstop service, and as AA began pulling the 767-200s off international routes, it didn't make sense to "waste" a 767-300 on the BHX route when it could be more profitably used somewhere else.

On the 757.  Wink

The ORD-BHX was a fairly senior route for FA's.

Probably not, the 757 quip was for the JFK-BHX remark.

Poor Newcastle, its has been on the list of cities being considered for new service for so long at CO, yet the service never materializes. maybe next year?

How so? We have a daily flight to BHX from EWR in the winter. It leaves at 0900 and arrives at 1155. It gives many opportunities for connections throughout our whole system.

Hello there!
I take it from you name you're cabin crew from EWR (sorry if it's a silly question  Wink )
Sorry to go off topic, but just wanted to know your favourite British city for layovers?
How would you rank BHX,LON,MAN,EDI,GLA,BRS,BFS?

Hello back!

Quoting Concorde001 (Reply 16):

Have yet to go to BRS...

LGW (we get free travel, as working crew to LGW, on the Gatwick Express - while it is still around), MAN (great Indian food), GLA (good food and - being Scottish myself - gotta love kilts, EDI (see comment for GLA), BFS (amazed how many restaurants it has) and then BHX. Food is a priority for me. I figure it takes a lot of food to maintain my shape. Big grin

I am hopelessly addicted to British television. It's why I am a big fan of the UK. Thank goodness for BBC America.

I am looking forward to other cities we are *rumored* to be flying to, such as NCL and LBA.

From talking to their crews, it was because of the quaintness of the surrounding BHX areas. Stratford-upon-Avon is close by, it is where we stay. The theater in S-u-A, the antique shopping. Plus, at the time, it was a decent trip to work (customer and hour wise).

Thought that CO had pretty much got this route them selves.
With there various connections etc

With there being a daily service and then a second service which operates 3 - 4 days a week.

But if the demand is there for another New York flight then let AA join the party.

Will be nice to see another USA carrier into BHX.

25 Humberside : Would DL be considering JFK-BHX with all their JFK expansion at the moment?
26 2travel2know : The connecting possibilities with DL @ JFK doesn't compare to CO @ EWR. BHX-NYC may be a very limited market for another airline. ATL-BHX makes more
