(1) aircraftmen coasts nomads
(2) arena kelp towns
(3) orange kraut pew

I'll let those smarter than me figure these out. Bonne chance!

SFO-AMS
EWR-NAP
EWR-PRG

Guessing all three summer seasonal. EWR-NAP is especially interesting to me... I am probably one of the only people who loves the city of Naples. Of course, plenty of other magnificent things to see and do in and around the area as well.

If we abbreviate the Twitter clues and look up the IATA airport codes we get the following interesting results:
(1) ACN - Acuña International Airport, MX
(2) AKT - RAF Akrotiri, CY
(3) OKP - Oksapmin Airport, Papua New Guinea

Unsure about number 2 but items 1 and 3 seem somewhat plausible (i.e. UA extending Oceania and LATAM service). TIFWIW

Well done! Got hung up on the first one. Glad to see they are adding more European destinations from the West Coast. As for Naples / Prague...NAP makes sense for Amalfi Coast visitors, I guess. Prague - is there that much demand?

I guess more interestingly - both NAP and PRG are outside 752 range...safe to say that they are keeping both OPO and KEF for next summer?

From: 1 I have no idea, 2 looks like NYC, 3 looks like the bridge in Chicago just sound of union station... But I can't figure out the other buildings in the background. To: I can't figure out 1&2, but someone guessed Naples on twitter, and after a quick google search, the third one does look like Naples...

Edit: As I was typing this out someone guessed all of them. A day late and a dollar short I suppose haha

AA started PHL-PRG (and to BUD) this summer (seasonal) and also ORD-VCE. Next summer, AA will also begin seasonal summer service on PHL-DBV. Seems like there is more demand to Eastern Europe now.
