Summer 2019 schedule changes as of 4 Jan 2019

If you’re traveling this summer, it’s time to double check your existing bookings. New destinations, cancellations of others and a number of aircraft changes (e.g. some MAX 8s replacing 757s to S. America, PHL-PRG A330) are part of the mix. (Some Of these have been announced previously, others not.)

See the entire list of changes announced 7 Jan at RoutesOnline (link).

New routes (As always, “Subject to Government Approval”)

CLT: MUC
DFW: DUB, MUC
MIA: COR, VVI
ORD: ATH
PHL: BLQ, DBV, EDI, TXL,
PHX: LHR (!)

Cancelled:

ORD: MAN
PHL: FRA, GLA, MUC

This just fascinates me:

Los Angeles – Tokyo Haneda eff 06JUN19 777-300ER replaces 787-9, 1 daily

Kuddos to AA if they can sustain the 77W on that route.

I'm not sure if this is still the case, but I was able to snag some U inventory on the CLT-MUC flight for my family this summer (And MUC-DFW on a re-arranged 788 for the return). When they loaded these flights, I guess they forgot they don't give Saver business class awards to Europe in summer anymore. ;-)

The fares for paid J were also fairly cheap at $2500 R/T, so I snagged one of those for myself.

It had wide open availability for July when I checked on Dec. 19th. Worth looking at if you're looking for a European gateway city to start a trip this summer.

JDiver: Can you explain what the implications actually are of "Subject to Government Approval?" I assume I should feel secure about these flights happening, but I was a little nervous to book.

The slow strangulation of JFK continues.

All international flights are subject to government approval, and most of these have likely been approved, such as it is. But the airline will use that caveat just in case - and iirc it has usually been China where there have been recent issues.

Others may be more informed about any specific flights that may be stalled in securing the approval, but as I say it’s just boilerplate legalese just in case.
