All US Italy routes (daily unless noted)...
MIA-PHL-FCO (5x a week)
JFK-VCE (4x a week)
JFK-MXP (5x a week)
IAD-EWR-FCO (2x I think)
EWR-MXP (suspended until 31Mar02)
SFO-MXP (suspended with no re-start date)
AZ'a MIA-MXP flights are indeed very popular (hence, they do use MD-11s over 763s). As for AA, they are going to turn MIA into thier premier international gateway, and who knows, in the future, I could see MIA-FCO working for AA. AZ dropped MIA-FCO last spring in exchange for extra MIA-MXP flights. AA ended ORD-MXP after 9/11, and I believe UA was going to start SFO-MXP, but that never surfaced.

I flew the JFK-MXP (Milan/Malpensa) back in 2000 on Alitalia, and it is a fun flight. Although Alitalia sucks, they fact of being on a 747 is fun, and being on the national airline of italy is great too.

Haveric, thanks for the update. I did not know that. With US's current financial situation, I don't think PHL-MXP will be happening, but if they can improve financially, it would surely be a route they will look at.

ContinentalEWR, your confused. Alitalia dropped MIA-FCO. Alitalia before spring 2001 operated MIA-FCO 2x a week and MIA-MXP 3x a week. Now it is daily MIA-MXP, AZ flight 636/637. MXP provides better connections and higher yields, and works out better because Miami and Milan both have huge fashion industries.
