Loads were quite strong during the peak summer season but are slowly dropping off now.
The aircraft is always weight restricted but it usually makes it out with a full pax load.
On time performance has been among the best in the transatlantic operaood.tion thanks largely to the flight being the first departure of the afternoon to Europe.
The route will shut down in October and be resumed for next summer.
It iwll certainly be high up on the priority to get the A332's once thy come online in 2009.
Rumor has it that the yields are quite good.

Are they completely stopping the route or will it just be a reduction from daily to maybe 3 or 4 times per week? I was hoping to use US to Greece in November.

DL or CO will happily take you to Greece in November.....for US, the ATH route is seasonal and does not operate during the winter months.
