AA owns the vast majority of dormant TWA route authorities from JFK
and other cities. A few were discarded or truncated by other governments when the transfer took over from TW
. But, most remain intact, unused.
Someone once placed on here a link to a DOT site that lists them all..it dozens of pages long.
That being said, Someday down the road when political, security, or just plain economic issues all come together, you can expect AA
to exercise some of those long dormant routes. Now I WOULD NOT expect them to fly old ones such as BOS
-Santa Maria,in the Azores. TWA had dozens of long thin international routes that they served only several times per week during the 50's,60's and even into the 70's, usually with 707's.
But I would bet that someday JFK
to Moscow, or JFK
to other eastern European cites or even Teheran, or Bagdad..who knows?.
(I found an old TWA Travel Guide hardback book from 1956 at a old book sale...TWA served Basra, Iraq (as well as Amman,Jordan) with Constellations.
That route authority still exists..long dormant!)
