SN announced today that next week they stop the SN flight to DFW , to ORD and TO YUL
ONE of both daily Bru and JFK are cancelled.
What AA will do ?

The second daily Flight between ORD and BRU in code-sharing is a AA plane (767) they will maybe use a 777
for the only daily flight .
Maybe we will see a daily AA DFW-BRU with a 767 AA.
(AA do the same in ZRH.)
Wait and see

I think they may start JFK-BRU. Maybe they can finally get to doing MIA-BRU (highly unlikely). I don't think they will start DFW-BRU, however.

American will probably re-enter the JFK-Brussels market at some point. It pulled this route several years ago although Brussels, along with Paris, Frankfurt, Lyon, and Zurich were the carrier's original New York-Europe routes beginning in 1987.

ORD-BRU has a good chance. DFW to BRU is iffy in these days of weak demand.

I am pretty sure that most of the loads for DFW-BRU were connecting pax. I don't see a real reason to restart this route, as it was only for Sabena to get closer to AA. I don't think this route will be restarted anytime soon unless the loads were really high. I don't think AA could fill a 762 on it flying 7x daily.
For ORD, I would be shocked if AA left it the way it is, i would think they would upgrade to a 777 or put another 767 on it and make it 2x daily.

American should go for the B777 for DFW-BRU if Sabena discontinues the BRU-DFW daily flight.

I wouldn't look for a second ORD-BRU anytime soon and I doubt that you will see a 777 on the route either. My guess is that you will see the flight leave earlier out of ORD and arrive earlier back into ORD. I would think that you will see the departure time ORD-BRU somewhere around the CDG and FRA flights.

AA has already flown DFW-BRU a few years ago and it was dropped so don't expect it to return. I think it lasted less than a year and that was in a good economy. If it was a good route they would have restarted it instead of having SN fly it.

Well I don't think American will ever fly a 777 to Brussels. American will always fly 767's to Brussels. There are doubts about restarting the DFW-BRU route, I don't think they'll do it anytime soon and even if they do they won't fly the 777 on that route. The 777 is too large, a 767-200 would be enough. If the market is improving, American may switch the equipment from a 767-200 to a 767-300 but not to a 777.
About the ORD-BRU flight, the outbound flight out of ORD will continue to operate in its current schedule, that is leaving ORD at 845PM and arriving BRU at around 1200N, but the return flight may leave one hour earlier and arrive ORD at around 400PM instead of 500PM so that passengers can catch connecting flights more easily. Right now the aircraft is a 767-300 but it may at any time be switched to a 200, you never know.

All 762s are now off of the Atlantic...When the ABER is pulled beginning next year, it will be all 777s and 763s to Europe.

Ben,

 Smile I disagree. Personally, I think AA would want to move the ORD-BRU flight to about a 17:00 departure while also moving the BRU-ORD departure to a pre-12:00 departure. The timing in both directions would be better if they did that..... I'll call them tomorrow and give them the heads up!  Smile  Smile  Smile

To elaborate a little more, a 17:00 ORD-BRU departure would fit nicely into the schedule as it builds great 40"+ connections from AA's 15:30 arriving bank. This would allow the flight to arrive BRU a lot earlier (8:30ish off the top of my head) which would be more desirable in my opinion. In addition a pre-12:00 departure back BRU-ORD would arrive early enough into ORD to build 70"+ connections back to AA's 14:50 departing bank. Most of the outbound connections that would be made would put a passenger into their final destination at anywhere between 16:00 and 17:00 in general.

Absolutly, because now with a departure from Bru at 14.50 to ord and then a connection , we arrive never before 20.00( 8.00pm) to late.
AA flight must take the slot of the cancelled SN flight with a departure at 10.45 from BRu.

I was a little off... AA's website shows the flight times have indeed changed but to a 16:55 ORD-BRU and a 11:00 BRU-ORD departure.
