Re: American Airlines DC 10-10 3 class

Yes, in 1994 JFK-LHR was 6 daily, AA100, AA104 & AA106 where MD11's, AA116, AA132 & AA140 767-300's. AA106 was a day flight. No EWR at that point but American did fly to Philadelphia. The only other MD11 service was AA86 from ORD.

Re: American Airlines DC 10-10 3 class

American used 3 DC-10-10's on Boston-Heathrow in the early 1990's, N117AA, N125AA & N166AA, I believe informally they where known as DC-10-10ERs and had a higher take off weight - i assume you mean these 3?
