Re: Philadelphia Aviation Thread - 2020

Not sure there is a ton of demand for domestic widebodies. I think a majority of widebodies are still parked. There are a few weekly domestic frequencies that are rotated to PHL that go on to fly the cargo flights to FRA, MXP, and FCO. On a side note, if Flightaware is correct UPS is flying the 748 ...

Re: American adds JFK-TLV and ATH

How much feed does JFK-ATH need? I feel like it will not need a ton of B6 feed to support it. And that feed will not be enough to cannibalize AA feed into PHL and ORD for those flights. Again, who knows what the next 12-24 months looks like for TA travel.
