AA BOS-CDG/MAN 2007

Fri Oct 06, 2006 11:53 pm

Well finally it looks like AA will operate BOS-MAN and BOS-CDG for the 2007 summer season.

BOS-MAN 757 will begin 4/10

BOS-CDG 763 will begin 5/1

I was keeping my fingers crossed that these flights would return.

It's interesting that AA's 6 flights from 5 gateways makes gives them arguably better service to Paris than AF's partner DL. I am flying to Paris today and could not get a business class ticket on AA - and I tried to book some time ago. Business must be good there.

BTW: AA needs to be careful on the yield thing. I'm EXP on AA, but am Premier Exec on UA as well. It's harder to be brand loyal when you can't even get a seat. (AA's seat guarantees for EXP's only apply to coach, not premium cabin).

It appears that BOS-MAN will then be the only 757 transatlantic flight for AA (unless there are more scheduled but not announced). This is good news.

Some time ago, there was some talk on the possibility of BOS-GLA on AA. Has this been abandoned? Thanks.

Yes, the AA station in Glasgow is closing down. The ORD-GLA seasonal service will not return in 2007.

Where did you hear that? Boston was the only airport to see 757 service across the pond from AA (I'm talking about recently), and it was two flights (Shannon, Manchester), Shannon is being added as a tag-on to the ORD-DUB flight and Manchester is just being reopened for the summer.

With the winglets on the 757s it would be a shame for AA not launch a handful of flights from the Northeast (or even Chicago) to Western Europe. Who knows, ORD-GLA is possible with 757.

Hey, I'm all up for it....as it would certainly increase point service...but I thought that flying the 757's over the pond was something they didn't want to do....

Maybe I read something incorrect or interpreted it incorrectly...

ORD-DUB is via a 763

I have heard the same thing but from these boards, so take it for what it's worth. I have not seen anything official from AA saying they are wanting to discontinue all 757 transatlantic flying. However they are spending money to add the winglets, which they didn't need to do if they wanted to keep those birds domestically/Carribbean/South America. There isn't much movement (at least publically) about them launching into NE Brazil or returning to ASU nonstop with 757's....so perhaps we'll see some additional flying to Europe. It's anybody's guess at this point.
