AA left a lot of cargo behind in TLV every day as the A330-200 just couldn't make it to PHL with a full load.


Max structural payload, no. But full passengers and bags should have been feasible.

AA's oldest A332 is 10 years old, meaning most likely a 233t frame. AA should have been able to easily carry 75,000 lbs of payload on TLV-PHL with that. That's more than enough for 250 passengers and bags. If you can't make a route work with those kind of numbers, it means the problem is not the aircraft type, it's the route.

Hence why AA isn't resuming PHL-TLV, and decided to go with DFW instead. Smart move.
us Air Traffic Controllers have a good record, we haven't left one up there yet !!
