Will AA Ever Bring The 77W To ORD?

Fri Jun 12, 2015 5:00 am

It would probably work best on only one current route out of there....ORD-LHR.

It's been to Chicago before: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMjWcyu5Em4



But to answer your question, I don't think so as they are running out of frames. I see and I think AA sees ORD more as a 787/A350 type.


If not the A350, the 787 for sure.

For LHR, They used to have 3 evening 772 flights in the summer which I think is down to 2, you'd think one or both of those could support it. Probably not enough to go around though.

Right now, I think it is unlikely. AA regularly flies to Beijing, London, Paris, Shanghai, and Tokyo from Chicago. I do not think Paris could support such a premium plane. AA has already implied that the 772 is too big for Tokyo which is why they're putting a 788 on that route. And London already has a lot of flights between AA and BA. Not sure about China.

In the long run its possible they may bring it to Chicago as they acquire more 787s and A350s and reorganize the fleet as necessary. But right now it seems that all the 77Ws are planned for other routes and that AA is not looking on taking anymore.

CDG will never get a 77W from ORD on AA.....at least not until DL de-hubs ATL and WN orders A380s.

Personally, I expect that it's just a matter of time - when, not if - until a 77W shows up on at least one of the LHR flights (probably 46/87). As the 777s get reconfigured to 2-class, I would expect that AA will want to keep a 3-class F product on at least one ORD-LHR rotation, as the market certainly does have at least some premium traffic. (I have heard it rumored that the ORD K19 Flagship Lounge is closing, which would make sense considering AA will soon be down to just four daily 3-class longhaul flights, and I expect PEK/PVG and the morning LHR to be 787s in the not too distant future, anyway.)

AA has at least one competitor on every longhaul market it serves out of ORD, the 77W is too much airplane for any of its routes. A very small chance it'll fly ORD-LHR in the future, but doubtful.

The number of competitors is of little relevance in the case of ORD-LHR. The 77W does, indeed, have about 65 more seats than the 3-class 777s AA currently uses on ORD-LHR, but lest we forget, AA's capacity in that market is already down materially YOY given the elimination of the fourth daily frequency. As such, it seems entirely plausible - indeed, likely - to me that in the not-too-distant future, AA ORD-LHR will go from 1x 763/2x 777 to 1x 788/1x 777/1x 77W (up less than 12% from capacity today, and still down nearly 17% from capacity just a year ago). If not for T5 gate availability, AA would already be flying a 77W ORD-LHR - I still think it's a matter of when, not if.

As for the rest of AA's ORD longhaul network - I agree that none of those markets are likely to ever see the 77W anytime soon. I still think all of AA's ORD-Asia flights will be 787s in the not-too-distant future and while I think it's at least within the realm of possibility that some of the ORD-Europe flights (particularly CDG) could perhaps get upgauged to reconfigured 2-class 777s in the coming years, I don't think any are realistic candidates for the 3-class 77W.

Also remember the current 3 class 77Es are being converted to J45/Y215, which is much better suited for the ORD-LHR route than a 77W. The 77Ws will be too busy flying routes like DFW-HKG, LAX-SYD, DFW/MIA/JFK-GRU, LAX/DFW/MIA/JFK-LHR to have any spare aircraft to operate out of ORD.

I disagree. ORD-LHR is a not an insignificant premium market. There is space for at least one ORD-LHR flight to retain true F - and I fully expect that will happen, with, as I said, the ~1830 eastbound and ~1200 westbound departures eventually going to the 77W.

I don't think so. The presently-programmed schedule entails:

DFW-GRU
DFW-HKG
DFW-LHR
JFK-GRU
JFK-LHR
LAX-LHR
LAX-SYD
MIA-GRU
MIA-LHR

As currently scheduled, and depending on how aircraft are routed, that amounts to 17-18 frames worth of service (and that's assuming that all three MIA-GRU flights stay as 77Ws, which I am not sure is the case). Either way, there's room for one 77W to do ORD-LHR. Again - as already discussed by others here well-informed on the subject, AA already intended to be flying the 77W ORD-LHR this summer. It didn't happen only because of gate scheduling constraints at T5.

Those are all the exact routes I just outlined in my last post. The last 77W won't be delivered until 2016, which I see being put to better use where F demand is higher, such as DFW-NRT, when all the 77Es get refurbished.

ORD could use a better, more competitive J product with a refurbished 77E and let the 8 F seats go to better use elsewhere.

Once again, it bears repeating - AA itself wanted the 77W on ORD-LHR this summer, whereas AA itself will be transitioning ORD-NRT to a 2-class 787 later this summer, so clearly AA believes the market potential is not there, at least not currently, to continue operating a 3-class plane on ORD-NRT.

I know they were going to use it, but as of now they deferred. And with LAX-SYD coming online they will be short the frames to start any 77W flying out of ORD until those last frames are delivered, which in my opinion they'd be better served on other routes than ORD-LHR.

I'm not at all opposed to ORD getting the 77W. If AA sees fit, good! I'm just throwing my    out there.

That's correct, it was an internal communication issue that caused it going from a 77W to 763 then finally to 772. I do not foresee that error happening again for S16.

The large issue will be if BA desires to op the 380 for S16, will AA want to go to a 77W or keep the 772/763 mix under the JV. There's several dymanics in play currently.

Not surprised at all by this rumor. AA longhaul at ORD isn't quite what it used to be, and neither is that lounge. It's forever 1992 in there.

I would expect the lounge itself might stay open since it handles Iberia and JAL passengers - both airlines that would probably like to offer their premium passengers a little more than the carrot sticks and snack mix available in the Admirals Club. The Flagship Lounge branding may get yanked, though.

Again - remember - the joint AA/BA schedule in the market is already down in capacity YOY with the elimination of the fourth daily AA frequency (shifted to become the second LAX-LHR flight). With hypothetically transitioning one of the remaining two AA 777 flights to a 77W, we're talking about a total difference of less than 65 seats from what AA/BA currently have in the market today - that's a drop in the proverbial bucket.

Funny, perhaps, but not necessarily surprising when United and ANA are just as strong if not stronger at both ends of the route. No different than ORD-LHR, where AA/BA (who jointly have hubs at both ends of the route) offer 60 daily F seats to United's 16.

AA/JL has hubs at both ends as well, so that analogy falls completely flat. On ORD-NRT, both sides are on exactly level playing field. On ORD-LHR, a blind person can see advantage oneworld.

NRT/HND-LAX is a funny case. AA/JL offers twice the F seats as UA/NH, but UA/NH offers more J seats and more total seats.

First off, those are two separate things. Having the larger and overall stronger hub is not the same thing as being the largest O&D carrier in a market.

Second, the claim wasn't without proof - and said proof has been provided in threads previous. The "claim" was not made by any poster on A.net but by AA itself in its own presentation on the USAirways merger, in which it showed a graph depicting AA and USAirways combined having a larger share - at least at that time - of the ORD O&D market than United. So if you don't like the statistic, take it up with Doug Parker.

Slide 14:

• The combined airline will have a larger local passenger base in Chicago than United
• United will still have a larger overall operation due to its international flying, but with a solid domestic foundation, the combined airline can compete effectively for international business with United in Chicago"


The numbers appear to be from 1Q11, so several years ago, anyway. Nonetheless, once again, if anyone doesn't like or contests those numbers - that's fine. But don't take issue with an A.net member who merely repeated them. Take it up with AA itself, which published the numbers, or Diio, from where the numbers were apparently sourced.

That first bullet point can also mean "we have more registered FF members in Chicago area". The keyword is passenger "base" not passenger "count". It's like the difference between "voter base" and "voting count".

And that only talks about Chicagoland-based customers (the "O"), and says nothing about pax from outside *arriving* into Chicago (the "D").

I'm impressed how that first bullet point can be extrapolated all the way to "AA has higher O&D share".

Oh jeez.

The first bullet could be extrapolated that way, but for the graph mere centimeters below it that is entitled, "Local Chicago Passengers, Year Ending 1Q 2011 Millions" and footnoted, "Source: Diio YE 1Q11 O&D Passengers," which clearly shows the combined AA and USAirways ahead of United. So it seems pretty obvious that what AA was talking about was - as the chart depicts - O&D passengers, and not "registered FF members," or excluding "pax from outside *arriving* into Chicago (the "D")." I'm frankly not really sure how much more clear they could have made it.

No extrapolation needed other than for those doing rhetorical gymnastics so as to avoid simply reading the chart exactly as it's written.

Again - if you don't like the chart, or think it's wrong - then fine. Provided better/more recent/more accurate numbers. Otherwise, take it up with Doug Parker.

ORD carried 66.7M pax in 2011 (not the exact time period but close enough) Assuming UA had 50% share that's 33.35M pax.

That chart only shows 6M pax for UA O&D, so it's implying that only 18% of UA's pax carried through ORD are O&D ? Doesn't it cross your mind that this is ridiculously low, when most large US hubs are in the 40-60% range ?

Again - if you don't like the chart, or think it's wrong - then fine. Provided better/more recent/more accurate numbers. Otherwise, take it up with Doug Parker.

He'll take that up with Doug Parker after he's done complaining to the AAdvantage Desk that he can't upgrade on BA metal.

The answer to you question lies in whether AA thinks ORD can support the F product. Given that there is a chance the A350 will have F, perhaps that will be the plane to run F into ORD.
