The A321OEOs, no.

TLV and CPT, both from PHL on the 789, that would be nice. MIA-CPT on the 789 would be nice too, like SAA used to do on the 744 25 years ago.

I noticed that MFE is getting mainline again, starting today, but the first flight got cancelled. 3 MD80's and a 319.

Today was the inaugural Chicago-Athens flight.

I believe DFW-AMS, PHL-BUD/PRG/ATH, ORD-DUB and CLT-DUB/BCN resume today.

Anyone has insight into the loads on the PHL-PRG route, especially now that it's served by a 332? I hope it's successful and will stay.

Outbound flight tonight to PRG seems to have 1 seat left in business and Premium Eco is completely sold.

Returning flight tomorrow morning has about 6 in business and not much sold in Premium Eco.

We’re not even in the peak summer season yet so... seems to be doing well.

Yes, I saw the same when making a dummy booking. I'd be interested in knowing how it compares to other seasonal routes in the medium term. Fares are pretty high even for July/August - does that genearlly signify demand is healthy?

I believe May 1st ish.

Also AA is adding an a319 BUF-PHL mainline flight and Chicago this summer. Which is odd. Usually those are American Eagle flights. Not by means anything crazy news wise. But still interesting.

Pretty sure AA was very happy with BUD/PRG at the end of last year which led to the A332 upgrade. Considering they're selling full in May, it should be doing very well with the upgrade.

I understand BUD is still 763 while PRG got the 332 upgrade. One can only hope for 788 year-round!

Switching to a 788 on BUD is practically guaranteed once the 763s are gone. If not, it’ll be upgraded since there are no other smaller aircraft capable of flying PHL-BUD at the moment. As for year round... not sure. One day, maybe.

From PHL, I would expect BCN to go year-round before BUD or PRG. It's a bigger market and is also served from JFK and MIA (year-round) and ORD and CLT (summer).
Then I would expect ATH and probably EDI to go year-round.
But all of these are long shots. Very seasonal markets overall and there are other places to send the aircraft in the winter and make more money.

I agree all of these are highly seasonal, though it seems to me the Transatlantic market is more saturated in BCN and EDI as opposed to PRG. It seems that premium demand is healthy for PRG year-round, and while most business pax have connection options other than PHL, I think AA can still tap this a very promising market. BUD even has LOT flying to the US year-round, albeit with fewer frequencies. My hope is the 788 could fit the need and give Prague (finally!) a year-round connection - or two - to the US. The obvious downside is a lack of a local feeder - I wonder what DL's feeling is about PRG given SkyTeam's presence in PRG.

After growing DFW by nearly 100 daily departures this summer, FlightGlobal reports that American plans a similar increase next summer at Charlotte.

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/artic ... th-458591/

American is adding more than 100 flights to its Dallas/Fort Worth hub this summer, plans a comparable increase at Charlotte next year and will shift to larger -gauge aircraft at Washington National in 2021 as part of this push to boost profitability.


Wow - doing all that again. It seems their growing even faster than United is these days. But where are the planes coming from? They're retiring MD80s still and with the MAXes grounded - I don't see how they're doing it.

A lot of their growth this year has been through regional aircraft. They still have quite a few CRJs and E-175s on order.

Once the MAXs are no longer grounded, they'll be able to deploy them at DCA and upguage routes.

There are still some more nonstop routes that could be added by DL, UA, and WN at CLT such as CLT-BOS/LAX/SEA by DL, CLT-SFO by UA, and CLT-DEN/PHX/STL by WN.

While I can understand AA wanting to significantly expand its CLT hub, there should be some more nonstop routes added by DL and WN out of CLT in order to provide some competition in the CLT market.

Why does AA want to significantly expand at CLT when some of the same adds can be made by DL and WN at CLT?

Either I don’t understand your question, or I am really perplexed by your question. It sounds like you are asking:
“Why would an airline (or any business) expand to meet a need when they could let their competitors fill that need instead?”

I actually meant to ask why AA would expand at CLT to meet a need when it could let competitors such as DL and WN fill that need. I had also previously mentioned that DL and WN should add more nonstop routes out of CLT in order to provide additional competition in the CLT market, and DL and WN both also have brand loyalty in markets outside of CLT to support additional nonstop routes out of CLT on DL and WN.

Just so I understand your reasoning, AA should stop growing a profitable hub so other airlines could grow in the market? I am very confused as to what your reasoning is? To be honest, it makes little to no sense.

DL and WN and UA and whoever are free to add flights at CLT if they want. But that's a different question than why won't AA "let others add flights" at one of their fortress hubs. That question makes literally no sense.

Any guesses what new domestic destinations CLT might get with this proposed expansion? I'm sure there are quite a few smaller destinations in the SE US that DL serves out of ATL whereAA might like to introduce some competition. Going west: ICT, ABQ, HOU and COS can be done with E-175's if they free some up from DCA flying when the MAX returns. They can try TUS again and BOI seems like a stretch...

no they have one last LHR slot pair left, they bought 2 from SAS and one pair was for LHR PHX and they have one left to use and put into action, IAD was a bust but some currently served BA and large AA stations come to mind, SFO, MCO, BOS

I have never heard this rumor. But it would be an easy airplane to
fill in the summer. PHL is usually packed to the gills and ORD is off to a strong start. Yields may be another story with 2x from DL at peak summer, and UA/EK out of EWR:

Plus, Norwegian is starting ATH from JFK too, right?

Philadelphia and Chicago to Athens are always packed. AA is very happy with the Chicago add.

ORD and PHL could be used for connections to Athens and JFK for local New York traffic plus a few connections. Local demand for Athens in the New York area is massive.

Just so I understand your reasoning, AA should stop growing a profitable hub so other airlines could grow in the market? I am very confused as to what your reasoning is? To be honest, it makes little to no sense.


While I agree that there should be some expansion at CLT by AA, there should also be some new nonstop routes added by DL and WN at CLT in order to provide additional competition in CLT.


Despite the size of the AA hub at CLT, CLT isn't a very big O&D market - which is what DL and UA would be serving. PDX (and even AUS at present) is bigger, for example.

Anyone recall the PI Hub in DAY in the 80's? wondering if now might be the time to resurrect that concept...not at DAY...but at SDF? Kalamazoo, Lansing, GRR, TOL, FWA, SBB etc with southbound connections to MEM, BNA, BHM, Florida etc. Could add some E/W connections as well. A mini-hub with < 100 flights...ERJ 175. Thoughts?

Nope, that’s what CLT is for.

I think AA is more likely to start DFW-ATH or CLT-ATH than JFK-ATH

Those two suggestions are just silly. CLT/DFW-ATH, not gonna happen.

I’d say AA will finish up west Europe at DFW/CLT before going for the more leisure east European routes.

JFK-ATH seems feasible. Are there any other carriers on the route? Delta I think?

I think that there would be more change for a PIT mini hub to work, or at least a focus city, than a DAY mini hub to work because PIT was a US Air major hub before, even though it's close to PHL and DCA. I think that a daily PIT-LAX could work, or at least 5x weekly, and a daily PIT-BOS on Eagle could work also. The A319 would be a good fit on PIT-LAX and the ERJ-175 would be a good fit on PIT-BOS. And as mentioned in another thread, American does some MX work on Airbus equipment in PIT.

Yes, DL has 2x daily A333 during the peak summer

With Delta 2x, United 1x at Newark and Norwegian starting service July 1st not sure if it would be in AA interest to start JFK-ATH unless they look to dominate that market. I'm interested in 2020 announcements for foreign travel hopefully they release something in August like they have the past two years.
