Re: AA & B6 announce Northeast Partnership

What the new flights to ATH&TLV offer compared with PHL is non stop, no backtracking or minimal backtracking connection travel to Greece and Israel from NY, NJ, CT and RI.

Re: American adds JFK-TLV and ATH

The jet Blue cooperation in the NY market sure ads a lot of feed to these new routes. The type of feed that AA only has in PHL and ORD so it makes sense to tap on the NY to Greece and Israel markets which are massive to begin with.
