AMERICAN AIRLINES RETURNS LARGEST AIRCRAFT TO FLIGHTS BETWEEN RALEIGH/DURHAM AND LONDON GATWICK

FORT WORTH, Texas – American Airlines today announced that it will resume its Boeing 777 service on daily flights between Raleigh/Durham and London Gatwick airports beginning April 1. The "Triple Seven" is the largest aircraft in the company's fleet. American switched to the smaller 767-300 aircraft following last year's decline in airline travel.

"Advance bookings are very encouraging on this trans-Atlantic route," said Mike Gunn, executive vice president for Marketing and Planning. "Customer demand suggests we bring back the largest aircraft in our fleet. We are delighted to be able to restore Triple Seven service between Raleigh/Durham and London Gatwick."

The Boeing 777 has 245 seats -16 First Class, 35 Business Class and 194 Coach. First Class customers can take advantage of comfortable fully flat seats, personal video monitors with a library of more than 20 movies, laptop computer powerports and Bose Acoustic Noise-Canceling headsets. And American Airlines is the only airline to offer passengers "More Room" throughout its coach cabin.

Separately, American's commuter service, American Eagle, recently announced that it will launch four daily round-trip flights from Raleigh/Durham International Airport to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on Jan. 31.

Someone here said that they would be introducing the type on one or both of their Boston-Heathrow runs 'soon.' Like a lot of things, I will believe it when I see it...kind of like that phanton Boston-Narita nonstop that actually was on the books a few years back...but never took flight.

No 772s on BOS-LHR, but the A300 flight will be replaced by a 767-300 next week.

Any thoughts on how much longer it will be until BOS gets the 777 to LHR??

I think it is possible that BOS will have the 777 by years end. Especially if the AA/BA alliance does not rise up from the ruins between now and than. Keep in mind that AA and BA could become enemies before this is over. Consequently AA may throw everything in their fellt against BA.

Where would the 777 for BOS come from? No extras will be available, will they?

With the N. Atlantic market one of peaks (summer) and valleys (fall/winter), I cannot see any sense in waiting until the END of the year to boost capacity on BOS-LHR (which going from a 767-300 to a 777-200 would represent). Better they do it around Memorial Day this year, or around then in 2003.
