While not privy to any financial numbers, I'm sure the flight was likely not much of a success. While AA
has a strong presence in the New York area, Newark is quite weak for the carrier compared to JFK
probably felt it could make better use of the limited LHR
slots by focusing on its strengths. In addition all LHR
flying is now performed by the 777, so if EWR
was unable to produce as a 763, it certainly could not sustain the added capacity of the 777.
