AA Resuming CLT-LHR/MUC on July 7, 2020 with 777-200ER

Just loaded in. Now available for booking on aa.com, but Premium Economy isn't available yet for LHR (changes still being updated).

When CLT-LHR/MUC resumes on July 7, the 777-200ER will be utilized for both routes through October 23 when the routes revert to A333/A332 respectively. (CLT-MUC A333 on October 24, then changes to A332 onwards).

This will be the first scheduled AA 772 service for CLT.

Too bad Octoberfest was canceled in Munich

I never understood the fascination of Oktoberfest.
Not getting served, without having a seat in the tents; that's annoying!

I've always favoured other German funfairs, where you can just walk up to a stand and buy your drinks right there. The freedom of choice makes that way more appealing.

Reverts to A330? I thought that they were now being retired.

Everything’s still subject to change. The October schedule will likely be updated later.

AA still needs to work a few things out. There’s some 763s scheduled for PHL-MIA in July and on Oct. 25 MIA-BSB is scheduled for the 752, assuming AA already retired them.

Very excited that my home of CLT will get a 777 for I believe the first time!

I prefer the 777 in biz but the A330 is definitely AA's best Y seat - and config.

I thought these planes are on their way to the scrap yard.

All have already been retired so the 767 needs to be removed from the schedules.

Sometime soon. I think most of them have already been ferried for Roswell.

Seems timed for the MUC business crowd -- a 6:35 TATL arrival is pretty rough, even in J, unless you need to be in the office.

And given the lack of visitors to the Wies'n this fall, I would not be surprised to see this trimmed to an earlier end date than the S19 IATA season.

That does seem like an early departure from CLT. If connecting, you’d have to leave pretty early In the day.
