Hey.

Someone has told me in the past, that AA has rights to fly to Hong Kong. Perhaps from ORD or JFK maybe?

Does anyone know whether or not AA have plans to fly to Hong Kong?

As long as their OneWorld partner, Cathay Pacific's service is better than theirs, probably not.

CX has plans to fly nonstop to Chicago next year, instead of New York. However, NY flights will still be served with its onestop service via Vancouver.

What about from other parts of USA? If they do not have the interest to fly to HKG, then why obtain a permit?

United Airline- It is still good to have the rights because what if AA and CX were to split(this is very doubtfull, I know, but I was saying "what if") than AA would need to get some marketshare. Also, what if AA wants to start it in the future from a point that is not served by Cathay Pacific? Right now with the financial trouble they are in, I don't see any new routes being started up unless it is an obvious cash cow.

Hell no! Why would they start any HKG service when a lot of other international service is being axed? I doubt HKG would be any better right now than TPE is.....

HKG is a major hub in the World. And the Airport is rated number 1 on earth.

So there is a chance that AA may choose HKG rather than other cities like TPE, SIN etc etc.

Just my 2 cents!

One AA 777 did visit CLK, and there was talk of them statring service next year. Guess there is no hope now.

AA to HKG? unlikely.

AA's TPE is saying bye-bye this October. This is one of the money making route.

well, is it possible for AA to start up connection flights from TPE to HKG? Or from another Asian City?

I guess not... since AA stops at Narita (NRT) Tokyo, AA will stick in this way instead of opening a new route. Both JAL and CX have connection flights from HKG to NRT.

before everything happend, AA was intrested in flying DFW-HKG non-stop, they were waiting for a longer range plane than the 777-200IGW, but i havent heard much about a longer range 777 in a while.


Go big or go home

Jiml1126,

Why would any airline cut a route that is making money? It does not make sense, especially in the current climate, where any source of income is likely to be closely guarded.
