American To Stop Brussels Operations!

Sat Feb 19, 2000 4:39 am

American and AMR corp. will announce soon that they'll stop their operations frrom Brussels to Chicago from 1st november 2000. They'll keep code shared flights with Swissair to Zurich. This is a bid to boost the new Zurich platform with the new Dallas flights.
It is now believed that United could take the Chicago flight over. Chicago is the 2nd largest hub of UA for European flights .

Where did you hear this? I can't find any mention of it on any AMR websites, including the employee site.

If this is true, wouldn't AA still have code share to BRU since they have the new agreement with SN?

I do know that Sabena is in the process of dropping their BRU-ATL flight sometime before the end of the year, and moving it to DFW. We've had people from both SN and SR come and look over our cargo facilities at DFW.

Looks like DFW is stealing ATL's international carriers! First JAL, now Sabena. Atlanta seems like too small of a city anyway to have as many foreign carriers as they do.

Actually, Atlanta is one of the country's bigger cities. Did you know that Atlanta is the world's busiest airport?

It really isn't Atlanta loosing to Dallas, it's more that Delta is losing (or giving away) to American.

Sabena flew into Atlanta many years before the codeshare agreement with Delta. It doesnt make sense as to why they would switch to DFW. I realise the AA codeshare, but this service was sucessful before DL. It would seem that service into Atlanta could still be worth it.

SN will drop its CVG route, in favour of the DFW flight.
Shiek!

I heard neither SN or SR are going to drop atl. The flight is successfull without the DL codeshare. But they operate smaller equipment now.

What???
American is going to stop Brussels Operations? No, they are not going to stop flying to Brussels. I hope not. They already lost the BRU-JFK flight so they'd better keep at least the BRU-ORD flight. If that happens, I would have to switch to an other airline and that's the last thing I wanna do. I'm convinced that they will keep the BRU-ORD flight for a long time, they may change the equipment to a 767-200 like it used to if fewer customers fly American out of Brussels be but there will still be that flight.

SN stopped CVG operations because of the DL-AF alliance. AF is taking it over with a CVG-CDG route that might go onto BRU.
