AA100

The JFK service has been a mix of 75w and 763 recently.-Will operate daily through the remaining winter period with a 75W

The Chicago route is currently on a 75W - Will not operate 5/1-26/3 2016

The Philadelphia route remains daily 332.

Thanks for the info.

I take it all 3 routes will restore to wide body 767/787?/332 for the summer season in March?

Has AA maintained 767 service on both ORD and JFK this winter?

Both 752s usually. The JFK inbound sometimes goes out to ORD and vv.


Check, e,g,, the history for N196AA from Nov 22

From to Hainan's facebook page, where they are announcing opening up a direct flight from Xian to Rome:
'Hainan Airlines will be flying from Xian to Manchester, United Kingdom, Sydney, Australia and Tel Aviv, Israel too very soon'

Has anyone heard or know anything about this?

So MAN is going from no China service (excluding HKG) to 3 services - PEK, PVG, XIY? Amazing!
Let's fly! Unless it's on a CRJ 200, then I'll stay down here.

Think Xi'an may just be same plane/flight number for the Beijing route

Surely they would be more interested in a Xian - London route, before a Manchester - Xian route?

It was as I expected some wishful thinking. The plans for the mainland Chinese cities remains PVG March 2016, PEK June 2016 and CAN ??? 2017.

In the meantime T2 planning application put to Manchester City Council.

Amongst various items listed, we have:

- An extension of 886,892 sq ft to Terminal Two and the West Pier
- Demolition of Terminal One (and multi-storey car park) and removal of existing car parking

Start 2016, T1 demolition in 2022 and T2 fully opened in 2023.

Possibly, it was probably just poorly worded on their FB page.

Interesting news from EZY, with the launch of twice weekly flights to Tivat from the end of March 2016

Unusual that MAN has been selected to be the first EZY base to offer flights to Montenegro, rather than the usual LGW / STN /LTN

It reminds me of GB Airways days when "BA" offered MAN-DBV but not LON-DBV which saw pax from LHR connecting through MAN.
Proud to fly from Manchester!
