JFK-LHR: Shuttle service
ORD-LHR: Near shuttle service
MIA-LHR: More seats
DFW-LHR: More seats (BA has already announced 744 service)
ORD-MAN: More seats
DFW-MAN: New (old) route
DFW-MAD: Shift to IB
ORD-BHX: New (old) route
ORD-GLA: New (old) route - seasonal
The above are the most realistic "news items" I have heard from friends at AA HQ in Ft. Worth.
If MAN gets another U.S. route, it would likely be the return of the Miami route. Significantly larger local market (MIA-MAN during the winter is not much smaller than DFW-LON, which is a surprisingly small local market), not to mention the Caribbean connections.

Quoting scutfarcus (Reply 7): This may be a wee bit off topic, but does this ATI thing impact the crazy non-reciprocity rule that AA and BA have regarding earning FF miles on transatlantic flights? That's always driven me nuts...
Yes. AA/BA mileage earning should be in place by October 31st.
Although, to note, it was only on U.S.-London flights.
You can earn BA miles on ORD-MAN and AA miles on MEX-LHR, for example.

Well, AA gets about 140 PDEW between DFW and LHR. They dont get the whole market and you have to take into consideration BA also gets a chunk of the O&D (Im not sure what they get). I wouldnt call whats at least 200 PDEW tiny.
Either way, DFW-MAN isnt in the cards.

Quoting AJMIA (Reply 11): It will be interesting to see if AA EVIP upgrades will be good on BA & IB.
I hope they will or I might as well use BA instead, since I'm PLT for life with AA. I don't even use my AAdvantage Frequent Flyer card with LAN anymore. I usually pay full-fare Business on LAN since I love throwing money at that airline! Of course, AA realizes this; and they even sent me an evoucher! AA knows I fly AA56/AA57, AA68/AA69, AA957/AA912, (since the crew is based in SCL), AA1647/AA1668, and now AA961/AA964 frequently. Aren't those the type of customers AA wants to keep? I surely hope so!

Quoting jersey777 (Reply 14): I hope this isn't true because that would mean we would lose one JFK-LHR for AA. I thought that ATI was supposed to make AA grow!
ATI will facilitate growth at AA, but not necessarily in the same markets, or with the same frequencies, already operated. For example, I fully expect AA to add multiple new destinations in Europe post-ATI.
Quoting Scotron11 (Reply 15): Consolidation of BA and AA terminals at JFK? Is it possible...like what they did with the old TWA terminal?
Not only is it possible, but that very thing is being examined. Basically the plan being discussed is for T8 to be finished out, and the to-be-finished portion would effectively become an entire BA "terminal within a terminal."
To be honest, T7 is very crowded. I don't find it to be a nice terminal. The TSA entrance is awkward, and the whole setup is not very user friendly. Let's not even get into the allocation of airline check-in counters in that terminal. It's just all over the pace.

Well I suppose like the rest of us it's starting to get on a bit ! I think I just like it because I love NYC, was always very excited arriving at JFK. I know what you mean though, it is a bit all over the place and security is a nightmare.
Flying is like sex - I've never had all I wanted but occasionally I've had all I can stand.
25 LHRFlyer: I think it will be some time before we see more AA/BA flights from the UK regions (if it all). What will be interesting to see is whether some existin

27 JFKPurser: I heard that AA's JFK-LHR frequencies were going back up to 6x daily as of October.
