Re: AA announces PHL-TXL/DBV/BLQ/EDI, PHX-LHR, DFW-DUB/MUC, CLT-MUC, ORD-ATH

Only last week, I got lambasted for suggesting that US Airlines are not interested in MAN. To further cement this notion, AA then scrap MAN-ORD. It’s clear that TATL traffic from MAN cannot really support year-round service with the exception of NYC and Florida. All other routes are highly seasonal...

Re: AA announces PHL-TXL/DBV/BLG/EDI, PHX-LHR, DFW-DUB/MUC, CLT-MUC, ORD-ATH

AA is dropping PHLFRA entirely, it's buried in the release on the chart. The article also mentions AY adding HEL-LAX on 3/31/19. Nice to see AA beating UA to the punch on ORD-ATH, and being the first airline to offer US service from BLQ and DBV. AA's seasonal Europe network from PHL is starting to ...

CLTMUC, that replaces PHLMUC. PHLFRA gone entirely. PHLGLA cancelled, with the GLA station closing. ORDMAN gone. JFKDUB gone. JFKEDI gone. ORDNRT will be 3x per week, but as it says, will go back to daily in the summer time. http://s21.q4cdn.com/616071541/files/doc_news/2018/08/American-Airlines-Ex...

EWR could certainly work, even with a current A330, as many carries (EK included) take advantage of the metro NY population.

I'd actually like to see PHL added given their presence in JFK & IAD, this would support the population in MD, PA, and NJ
