Qatar would be known as "Near East", LOL!
Since it'd be relative to the US wouldn't be Far West and Furthest West?
I noticed that AA have finally axed JFK-MAN for this year (with ORD-MAN finishing very early this year - mid September - but that is for another thread) so I would expect PHL-MAN to have a stronger load going forward. I must admit I've only done the route once (albeit the other way round) and noticed the A330 was full although that was mainly due to that day's JFK flight being cancelled which would imply a reasonably light load on the PHL flight..
As for PHL, we came in on AA734 which continued on to Las Vegas after clearing customs and changing aircraft which is fair enough, the downside was that despite our flight being the second one in they only had 2 counters open for non-US citizens (with 4-5 on for them) so we had to queue for well over an hour and then race across the airport to catch the connecting / continuing leg of our flight. It's put me off routing through there given how bad it is to connect and straying off topic a little, given how AA has pulled the plug on JFK and my preferred entry point of ORD It'll look like we will have to switch to DL/VS and ATL... A shame really as I did like PHL to an extent, I liked the bar areas and layout more than ORD, still, we shall see what happens.
