More or less, last year's announcement was on August 21st.

Honestly betting on:

DFW-HEL
or
PHL-HEL

It's quite funny how HEL is being brought up every year as a possible new destination in American Airlines Network Thread (as a Helsinkian I'm glad about it). Yet American has not launched, announced or publicly shown interest in opening a new route to HEL (at least I haven't seen) after they cut ORD-HEL in 2014.

Helsinki is indeed a possible (quite likely actually) next European destination for AA and thus it's no surprise it can be found in the list. For me also, DFW and PHL make the Top 2 possible AA routes to HEL. I remember DFW and slightly odd one, Charlotte, having said a couple of years ago they're seeking more European routes, Helsinki included from both airports.

I hope AA will serve HEL soon and I can see it happen within next few years.


Some have said Helsinki was on the table last year with DUB and MUC from DFW but didn't make the cut.

And yes, DFW is offering incentives for airlines that start these routes: https://www.star-telegram.com/news/busi ... 96832.html

Dublin, Munich, Helsinki, Berlin, Nagoya, Melbourne, Addis Ababa, Barcelona, Nairobi, Rome, Auckland, and Johannesburg


We got Rome in 2016, and DUB/MUC last year. Wouldn't be surprised to see MEL and AKL added with the QF JV.

I believe that was DL, not AA.


AA operated JFK-Lyon for a bit, quoting from this old thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=134329&p=1186157&hilit=american+airlines+lyon#p1186157

American has often started, then dropped longhauls out of JFK to places like Frankfurt (twice), Lyon, Brussels, Orange County, Seattle, and Manchester, UK.


and: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=223633&p=2213491&hilit=american+airlines+lyon#p2213491

American Airlines also operated a nonstop flight LYS-JFK, in the late 80's/early 90's, with a B767.

AA has tried and dropped DFW-KIX at least twice, maybe three times. It never sticks.


AA might be able to make DFW-KIX nonstop service work since Osaka-based Kubota had moved its North American headquarters to Grapevine back in April 2017. Is there enough demand for DFW-KIX nonstop service with Kubota having its world headquarters in Osaka and its North American headquarters in Grapevine?

Bottomline, AA needs to return to TLV. UA (and DL to a lesser extent) is making bank on TLV, and a lack of AA in the market is contributing to it.

AA should have never left TLV, Vasu himself has said it was a premature move to cut the route. Nocella I believe was the head of network planning at that time so who knows why the decision was made. TLV should have expanded to include MIA and ORD seasonally in addition to PHL year round.

Quote from the cut:

Earlier this morning, the Company announced that it will be discontinuing its Philadelphia to Tel Aviv route on January 4, 2016. PHL-TLV has not performed well since its inception in 2009. Service between PHL and TLV has been a source of pride for the Philadelphia base and is a popular bid choice for Flight Attendants due to its high credit. According to American Airlines Management, in its six years, the Philadelphia to Tel Aviv route never turned a profit in any year, and has already lost over lost more than $20 million on this service in the past year alone. Philadelphia is the fifth largest city in the United States and is in the top twenty for busiest U.S. airports. We are currently in discussions with the Company regarding their plans for the distribution of time and the aircraft utilization. While we are disappointed in the loss of this route, APFA looks forward to future announcements of growth in PHL and other bases throughout the American Airlines system.

I remember this announcement, I was working that day and remember how disappointed many of us were. I got to fly TLV and remember when the route launched. While I can not speak to yields the flight was always full, usually year round. Maybe it was a yield issue, maybe the equipment was not ideal (at times the 330 had weight restrictions out of TLV.) I’d like to see a return of this route.

AA could restart PHL-TLV on a 787, once they start basing that aircraft in PHL.

Per xJonNYC, an announcement might be coming "soon". He stated he heard potentially a new Italy destination. If they really keep BLQ, I can only see NAP as the only viable option. Sicily isn't that popular with Americans to start a flight to Catania.

Aah, I actually have seen these rumours. Totally forgot. If the rumours are true, I wouldn't be surprised if HEL was announed as a new European destination this autumn.
ATL, AYT, FRA, FUE, HEL, JFK, LCA, LHR, MUC | AY, BA, DL, FH, LH, LO | A320, A321, A333, 752, 764, 772, 788
The word "Quawer" means nothing but it looks great.

AA2690 DFW-BOS is usually a 752 and it looks like it departed 3 hours late and upgauged to a 772.

Interesting that it got delayed at BOS for 2 hours and 30 minutes on the flight back...

Taken from the PHX Thread:

https://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/new ... s_headline

AA adds Phoenix to Cincinnati, Colorado Springs, Fort Lauderdale, and Fargo.

Great adds by AA. FAR is unsurprising given the move by Frontier in the past week.

Agree. PHL-NAP would be my #1 guess. Curious how UA's EWR-NAP is doing?

I would bet on BLQ getting axed.

I think the strongest/most talked about rumors point to PHL-NCE, PHL-AGP, PHL-NAP, and/or DFW-BCN.

Very cryptic, but looks like there are some references to:

Beach destinations- sunscreen spray and maybe blowing up a beach ball?
Marionette- looks kind of Eastern European? Or Barcelona?
Black Pepper- native to India?

These are all just far fetched speculations, haha.

Cryptic is an understatement, I don’t know what to make of that. It better be big, with such a buildup for an announcement. Hopefully not a once weekly flight to a random Mexican beach resort operated by an ERJ 145.

American Airlines Is Considering Flying to Africa and India With New Dreamliners

Since its merger with US Airways, American has taken a cautious approach with new routes. It has expanded to major Asian and South Pacific markets out of necessity but otherwise hasn’t taken too many chances. It is nice to see the airline considering adding India and Africa.

Then we have PHL-TLV also PHL-DEL & PHL-BOM and finally the SURPRISE MIA-JNB & MIA-CPT.

I'm thinking PHL-TLV/CMN/NCE/AGP (maybe not all). I think the only route from DFW would be BCN. I think MEL would be from LAX. There are rumors that Japan would be announced as well, which would be the official announcement of DFW/LAX-HND and aircraft swaps.

I hate to be the downer here, because I want to see AA in India and Africa as much as anyone, but a lot of these guesses are just plain crazy. Between India and Africa the only viable option for this year is CMN, probably from PHL. AA doesn't have a ton of spare 789s sitting around to fly to South Africa or India (any spares are just waiting for the AU/NZ announcement), so while they could probably move things around if they had to, those are unlikely. As Vasu mentioned in the Skift article that everyone keeps mentioning, it's the next batch of Dreamliners, particularly the 789s, that will open up India and Africa. Those will be delivered beginning in, if I remember right, 2022. In other words, other than CMN, don't hold your breath for Africa, and India is almost 100% for sure not happening for a few years.

Most of the upcoming announcement will probably be a dart-board of seasonal Europe, so NCE, AGP, NAP or PMO, KRK, etc are all probably reasonable guesses. There's also a lot of rumors about this being the year for TLV (not in Europe, obviously, but still a transatlantic flight). There are a lot of possibilities in Europe and AA has shown a willingness to go after some odd ones, so most European guesses are probably fair game.

This announcement may also cover new AU/NZ flying after the QF JV announcement, which could be exciting. Lots of choices there, though LAX-MEL and DFW-AKL (seasonally) seem to be favorite picks from some. DFW-MEL is probably unlikely, but definitely in the realm of possibility.

Hi, I work at CLT.
Take this with a grain of salt but the rumor is that the gates on A Con will be used as part of a larger shift to move all domestic narrow-body flying off of D Con (International gates).

Interesting:
Tank with water, beach ball, mortar and pestle, marionette, sun screen, black peppercorns, drink on ice with stirrer, glass bottle being opened.

It could be quite far and wide spanning Central America, Europe and Asia based on the items.
Tank with Water, Sun Screen and Beach ball could be just about anywhere...unless paired with another item.
Mortar and Pestle could be any continent...
Vietnam is the world's largest producer of peppercorns, but India are really known for the spices
The drink with stirrer and the bottle being opened remind me of a gin and tonic...So I'd go with India for sure.
Interestingly the region in India known for pepper is Kerala, which is a beach/ tourist destination.

Do we have an estimated announcement date? Must be soon if they're building hype now.

Cheers,

I wish TLV was included in this announcement, but it probably won't be.

With QF presumably reassigning some 789s to the newly announced BNE-SFO and BNE-ORD routes, I expect they'll be cutting back a few of the 789 frequencies on BNE-LAX and/or MEL-LAX (I believe those are currently 3x weekly each?). If so, I wouldn't be surprised to see AA pick up some of those frequencies for winter 2020. They definitely have some slack in the winter 789 schedule.

As for other long haul adds, the ones that have been rumored and make the most sense to me are DFW-BCN, ORD-PRG, PHL-CMN, PHL-AGP, PHL-NAP, PHL-TLV, and/or JFK-ATH.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

I know AA is taking 4 more gates in concourse A at CLT. Will these be mainline gates or maybe used for the E75s? What other destinations could they add there?


Hi, I work at CLT.
Take this with a grain of salt but the rumor is that the gates on A Con will be used as part of a larger shift to move all domestic narrow-body flying off of D Con (International gates).

Do you know when CLT will get any 777s and 787s?



Any day now. Just waiting for hell to freeze over.

In all seriousness I have no idea. We are the red headed step child of the AA hub network.

I thought JFK was the red headed stepchild now, lol.
In all seriousness, though while it would be nice to see 787’s at CLT I’m always impressed traveling through there with the amount of traffic. Being the worlds 3rd largest single airline hub is nothing to sneeze at.

It’s all in good fun. We just wish we’d get some nicer planes. With the exception of the 738s everything here is the same planes that were here as US Airways.

It's rather surprising they opted for DFW-TLV as opposed to ORD-TLV.
