I noticed on the new timetable that AA does not have the RDU-LHR flight any longer. Was this something I missed on one of the previous timetables? I was not aware that this service was cancelled.

Any information?

Not aware AA ever flew RDU-LHR.
AA does fly RDU-LGW daily.

American NEVER operated RDU-LHR. It does operate
RDU-LGW. Raleigh/Durham is not covered under the
current Bermuda II agreement allowing US-UK air-
services from Heathrow.

The Raleigh/Durham flight operates to Gatwick w/
a 767-200ER or a 767-300ER.

Yes, RDU-LGW is profitable for AA, because of Glaxo Wellcome, which has its world headquarters in London and American headquarters in the Raleigh area. This was discussed in Ncflyer's post a few days ago, entitled "Corporate Subsidized Flights." Try a search on that, there were some good posts on that thread.

It must be profitable if they are still operating it after closing their hub there 10 years ago.

Yeah, I live in Raleigh and there was no service to LHR, just LGW. Like NWA man said it is so profitable for AA b/c of Glaxo. I wish they would use a 763 the whole year instead of using the 763 during the summer (up to October) and the 762 the rest of the year. Maybe AA will use a A300 or MD-11 sometime =)

They never flew a RDU-LHR. It's always been RDU-LGW.

Actually Raleigh is served by AA on flights to LHR, they are the final origin / destination (or WERE) for flights via JFK, just like Delta's Atlanta - JFK - Moscow flight. I think it's the same aircraft as well (or WAS). Maybe this is no longer the case since AA dehubbed Raleigh but I've seen Raleigh on the arrivals board at LHR. Technically those above are correct, it's never been nonstop but the airports were linked by direct service and for all I know still are. Nice city too (Raleigh).

Actually the flight from RDU to JFK is and SF3 AA Eagle. I think that it is crazy to operate an AA eagle flight from RDU. They should at least put a Super 80 on that flight. Anyways, I find it strange that RDU is on the arrivals board at LHR for AA, again b/c the flight to JFK is AA eagle=(
