I havent heard much about how AA has been performing at BCN since they started on May 1st.
Anyone heard anything about it?
How do the loads and yields look for the peak summer season?

Believe this is a seasonal route and designed to complement the cruise traffic that originates from Barcelona. There is a good deal of capacity on the NYC-BCN market, with DL, AA, and CO all having flights there. DL and CO are year round, AA's flight is seasonal.

Lots of advertising by AA in the NYC area for this route.

AA flies nonstop from JFK to London, Paris, Brussels, Milan, Rome, Barcelona, and Zurich in Europe. Stansted ends July 2.

Barcelona is going to be operated year round, but will be reduced to 5x a week this winter. So far I've heard the bean-counters are very happy with BCN's results so far, so it will probably be a keeper.

AFAIK is intended to be kept year round,

AA advantage over DL/CO is that it gets more feed on the BCN end with the IB codeshare.

IMO, loads should not be a problem, but yields is a different thing

As others have said, it will be operating year-round, if it lasts, albeit at a slightly reduced frequency.

I've heard the same - apparently they're happy with it thus far. But, of course, we all know that really means nothing short-term.

Let's hope this one makes it: besides the costs of setting up the station, AA set up an AA.com site in Catalan.

The other huge asset AA has is the massive AAdvantage base in New York - which always helps.

It doesn't necessarily provide an advantage over Delta or Continental - who both also have huge frequent flyer bases in New York - but it is a boost to the route. As you said, the sizeable base of Iberia flyers on the Barcelona end also helps immensely.

I don't think Iberia has flown Barcelona-JFK nonstop since probably 2000 or 2001.
