AA125/126 DFW-HKG-DFW is back in the schedule from 10/30/21

I’m wondering if they are resuming based on cargo demand alone and carrying the few inbound-HKG willing to subject to the quarantine etc.

The passenger DFW-FRA-DFW is also upgauging to B77E in December.

I suspect JFK-DEL-JFK may be another down the road (of course it first needs to actually launch).

On the 767-300ER the total jettison rate (override/jettison pumps operating together) is 2,645 lbs/minute or 158,732 lbs/hour.

There are two dual pump units. Each pump within the dual pump units has a jettison rate of 39,683 lbs/hour (x 4 pumps total gives you 158,732 lbs/hour during jettison).
