What US-based airlines fly, or have flown, internationally from Boston Logan? Currently, I know that NW flies to AMS, and AA flies to LHR and seasonally to several Caribbean destinations (SDQ, STT, others?) I believe they also flew to CDG at one point.

Over the years, have any other US-based airlines flown internationally from BOS, and if so, to where?

Before:

-AA:
BOS-MAN
BOS-SNN

-UA:
BOS-LHR

-NW
BOS-LGW
and a bunch of other places way, way back...

Now:

-AA:
BOS-CDG (seasonal - summer only-, year round most likely starting in 2009)
BOS-LHR (2x day - except Sat. - , 3x day starting May 2009)

-NW:

AA flies from Boston internationally year-round to London and Santo Domingo, and seasonally to Aruba, Paris and Providenciales.

They fly Boston-St. Thomas, but St. Thomas is in the United States and a domestic flight.

BOS-LHR (2x day - except Sat. - , 3x day starting May 2009)

BOS-CDG will likely become a 757 in August or so, which will return it to year-round operation.

BOS-LHR third frequency is currently a placeholder and a possible bargaining chip for their BA ATI application, and will likely not launch. At the same time, though, given their inevitable shortage of 763/772 aircraft this coming summer, the third BOS-LHR frequency might be the only way to keep that Heathrow frequency flying because BOS-LHR requires aircraft for the shortest block time of their U.S.-LHR rotues. What happens to this flight should become clear in January.

Braniff started nonstop 747 service from BOS to AMS/BRU/CDG/FRA on June 1, 1979 as part of their unwise international expansion on both Atlantic and Pacific routes. Those BOS-Europe routes were all dropped sometime before they filed for bankruptcy and suspended service in 1982.

If you count the Caribbean as intl (which it is) then don't forget JetBlue. Oh and US BOS-Cayman.

Didn't DL go to more than just LGW as well at one point?

When I lived in Boston in the 1990s:
TWA flew from Boston to Paris/Charles de Gaulle.
USAir flew to Frankfurt.

I'm pretty sure that Delta also flew to Frankfurt. They were supposed to fly to CDG and Rome, but I don't know if any of those flights ever came to fruition.

There were also one-stop flights through JFK to multiple European destinations. I specifically recall a 767-300 that flew Boston-JFK-Madrid.

Across the pond, it's just been LGW. They announced BOS-FCO a few years back (maybe 2004?) but never got it off the ground. Pre-9/11, there were plans to make BOS a much larger European gateway (think LGW, CDG, FRA, FCO, DUB/SNN, MAN) - there was space allocated in the new satellite terminal for a BusinessElite lounge (when these plans didn't come to fruition, Massport took over that space and now uses it for offices).

Internationally, they've fly (or flown) to BDA (current), CUN (current), NAS (former; was done primarily with Shuttle 737-800s and maybe Song 757-200s), YUL (former, L-1011s and 727s in the 80s and 90s, CRJs in the late 90s/early 00s), YHZ (current), YFC (former, with CRJs then Beech 1900s), Charlottetown (current/seasonal summer only). Sure there's more.

current:

AMS = NW (heard a rumor that DL will take over this route, even before they merge certs)

AUA = B6, AA, US

BDA = DL

CUN = B6, US, DL

GCM = US

YHZ = DL

LHR = AA

NAS = B6

SDQ = AA

YYZ = AA

Many of those are SAT. only at this point.

PLS, PUJ, and CDG are also typical seasonal service on AA.

AA has never flown BOS-PUJ; but US Airways has (not sure if they still do).

There is no need for them to fly to CDG on their own metal as they already code-share on the daily (winter) or twice daily (spring/summer) flights of AF. And let's remember that AF/DL operate these flights (among others) in joint venture. Whoever is operating the flight, they share losses and revenues at 50/50%.

This route used to be a year-round service for AA but became seasonal 3 or 4 years ago and was served with a 763ER. It is constantly rumored to come back year-round. If they plan a 752 next summer, It's amazing to me that they cannot fill more than a 752 during the busiest period of the year when AF flies daily a 744 and a 343 on this route.

It makes more sense when you figure in that AA BOS to CDG is going to be very heavy on O&D traffic. Neither airport is a oneworld hub. On the other hand, CDG is a SkyTeam megahub and BOS is a DL focus city of sorts, so it makes sense that AF would have a lot more capacity.

AA could and does fill the 763 on BOS-CDG during the Spring and Summer months in addition to the 2 daily flights by AF. But during the winter time, a 752 could be filled profitably between BOS-CDG as the flight would rely on O&D. Don't forget, U.S. airlines do carry a decent amount of BOS-Europe traffic via PHL, EWR and JFK.

AA Have also flown LGW-BOS. I flew this route in 1998 on a B767-200, then had a long trip up north to Vermont for a school skiing trip!

Back in the early 90's, I worked for Precision Airlines (NW Airlink out of BOS) and we did YHZ,YQB and YMX out of BOS in Dash-8's and Metroliners. I think Biz-Ex picked up the routes after we folded.


I have no association with Spirit Airlines

It was Sabena who flew BOS-BRU for many years. DL code-shared with them as part of the Atlantic Excellence alliance (DL, SN, SR, OS). The very short-lived VG Airlines also flew BOS-BRU following the bankruptcy of SN.

US will be flying from BOS to the following caribbean destinations:

NAS 2x week
GCM 1x week
PUJ 4x week
SJU daily
CUN daily
