AA PHX-LHR flights??

What happened PHX to LHR flights? They supposed to resume the flight for this month? Did they change the flights? Did they suspended the flight to December 1st??

It would appear that AA has indefinitely suspended it until April 2021 whereas British Airways has limited select service in December and onward.

Actually, the flight#194 scheduled to resume on March 21, 2021. I just got Twitter from American Airlines.

Nobody expected the US Presidential Proclamation to stay active for more than 6 months when the PHX-LHR route was first postponed to December.
UK hasn't established a travel corridor with the USA ( -> quarantine ), nor the USA is accepting visitors & several visa type holders arriving from the UK

So, IMO, for an unforeseeable future, this route would remain BA only with x3 weekly flights only.

it will be those that have dual citizenship with UK and US as well as UK citizens with Green Cards as well as those allowed to reside with Visaís e.g. L1 and the same for US citizens current living in UK. There will be others who will be given a special exemption due to work and personal reasons.
Flights are generally not busy - my upcoming flight to Philly on EF only has 20+ seats allocated. My BA flight to UK from Chicago had less than 40 passengers.

Not "who" but "what." In some cases there may be enough cargo for a route to be somewhat more economical to operate (at reduced frequencies) than the low pax numbers would suggest.

I just saw that MIA-LHR and ORD-LHR are cancelled in December (at least around the days I wanted to fly) (19th)

The UK border is not closed to American citizens. There is just a compulsory 14-day quarantine requirement. I know a number of people who have traveled to the UK in the last few months.

With that said, I don't see PHX-LHR starting any time soon. If it ever does, I'd give it a few years before it actually happens.

My vote goes for 2023 if the flight is ever resumed...
