DFW-PVG and DFW-HKG Starting Summer 2014 [route discussion]

DFW-PVG and DFW-HKG will be launched next summer. 777-300ER to be used on the HKG flight. Text below:

"New Asia service: We plan to add new nonstop service from Dallas-Fort Worth to Hong Kong and Shanghai beginning summer 2014. The Hong Kong flight will mark our first Asia service on our world-class Boeing 777-300ER, which we currently fly to both London and Sao Paulo. American will be the first airline to operate nonstop service to these cities from Dallas-Fort Worth, which will offer customers one-stop connections between Hong Kong and Shanghai and the Americas via our largest hub.

More 777-300ER service: We will deploy additional 777-300ER aircraft to our fleet in 2014, for a total of 16 of the 20 aircraft on order."

Depending on the schedule, this will make it easier to connect to flights in SE Asia.

Here is the official announcement: http://www.aa.com/i18n/urls/moreasia...title=moreasia

I'm guessing this is why the president of AA visited the head of the Chinese CAAC in Beijing last week.

Heheh... They mention JFK-HND, and then they're going to pull the rug out from under you.

I just look forward to finally be able to fly to HKG direct and free, even if it is in the rather cramped back of the bus.

Bahaha, I won't be surprised if I fly that 4-6 times a year now
Very happy to see the service, need to see what date is the inaugural but would love to be on it if possible.
I have the feeling DFW-HKG just became the hardest route to burn a EVIP the moment they fly it.

My joy is mitigated by the loss of direct AA JFK service to Japan.......
