Re: AA starting service PHL-BUD/PRG move JFK-ZRH to PHL

PHL-BUD is interesting. BUD has lacked service to the US since DL and AA pulled out (back around 2008, I want to say). I'm kind of surprised that AA isn't trying this out of JFK - seems like it would be a much larger market, and I'm not sure how large the Hungarian population is around PHL. Also, t...
