MAN-JFK to restart

This news is buried in a thread on American Airlines I imagine most people on this board won't read so I thought I'd split it out into a separate thread.

AA are starting up the Manchester - New York JFK route, replacing BA who pulled off a few years ago. Whilst most AA flights across the atlantic are non miles earning for BAEC, the existing MAN-ORD (and the previous MAN-BOS) flight carries a BA codeshare, so I'd be very confident of the same happening again here.

I imagine that the equipment will be a 757, but even so, hopefully this will be of some use to Manchester locals as I know the BA1503 had a very loyal following here on this board and elsewhere.

Don't you mean a few months ago?

It feels like it ended when I left the North but yes of course you are right, I can't believe it was only this year!

Delta has pulled their MAN-JFK schedule for the Winter, although I think it will come back for the summer, so this is good news!

Cheers,

Is this correct? I thought that you could get no TP or miles on any AA flights to anywhere across the pond? Or is it just to certain cities?

The MAN-JFK route is apparently only going to be seasonal though.

Its not there to book on the 1st of July 2010..so I suspect you will not see that again..well perhaps not for perhaps 10 years when there's new DL Management in place and they start the service again for 18 months or so and then pull it.

Hopefully 3rd times a charm/lucky as they say.

I thought the MAN code shares were the exception. Isn't it something to do with the old Bermuda 2 and gateway cities (i.e. not MAN) and the regulaters using that to judge cartels and price fiixing?

I'm sure someone who knows more than me will be along in a minute!

It's showing for me. I think it starts back up on 21st April.
