I was just wondering, was this flight out of Terminal B at EWR? How long did AA operate it for and when did they stop? Were there poor loads or what?

It departed out of AA's gates at Terminal A, and arrivals were at the Terminal B IAB.

AA operated EWR-LHR from '91/'92-2002. Started out as 767-300 flight, then operated by the A300-600R then finally again the 767-300.

AA and UAL both flew EWR-LHR from about 1991-2003.

AA flew A300-600Rs and 767-300s

UAL flew 747-SPs, 747-200s, and 777-200s.

AA decided to consolidate at JFK, UAL gave up on International service to NYC altogether. UAL flew from both EWR and JFK to both LHR and NRT.

I'm not positive, but I believe the flight arrived into Terminal B, unloaded passengers, and then was pulled over to AA's gates at Terminal 3 for the return flight to LHR. The flight number, however, which I believe was flight 93, continued on to DFW.

It was introduced for the first time in, IINM, around 1993-1994, and operated until about 1996. It was then brought back in 1998, operating daily with an A300, and remained as such until around 2002, when it shifted to a 767-300ER, and then shifted to a 777 for just a few months (I think less than three) in 2003 before being ultimately cancelled in 2003.

Quoting RJpieces (Thread starter):
Were there poor loads or what?

It was a few things. First, yes, the loads on the route weren't fantastic. After 9/11, the market softened a bit and the airlines with more established presences in this market -- especially BA and Continental -- were able to weather it a bit better. Another issue was aircraft. For years, the route was operated with a daily A300 configured in a 3-class layout. However, after AA phased out the 3-class A300 subfleet, the route shifted to a 3-class 763, but after AA phased out the 3-class 763 fleet, the route (very temporarily) shifted to a 777. IIRC, it only operated with a 777 for a few months before the route was dropped. AA wanted to put the 777 on the route because the market demanded 3-class service because of competiton from BA and hybrid F/J cabins from CO and VS, and because AA consolidated all LHR flying on 777s. But, alas, at least for AA and UA, the market just couldn't support that much airplane.

I think AA93 and AA92 was the flight number for Manchester UK - JFK (or the other way round JFK-MAN) that AA used to fly with 763s and for a time 757s in the mid 1990s.

I am surprised that nobody yet mentioned the B767-200. The EWR-LHR flight AA92 was a B767-200 in 1998/1999, I took that flight twice and I had a 200 twice. It was the time when the AA B767-200's were flown across the pond, and the A300's were flown from BOS, JFK and EWR to LHR in a three-class config. But yes you are correct about the A300, I remember that one although I have never flown on it across the Atlantic. LHR was the only destination in Europe to which AA ever flew from EWR.

Just a slight correction. Commavia is correct about how the arrival was handled, but STT757 is correct about which terminal the flight departed from.

Perhaps for a time, but the EWR-LHR-EWR flights were always operated with flight numbers 92 and 93.
