American Airlines has confirmed its plans to add additional routes from London Heathrow.
From 5th August, flights to Charlotte, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Raleigh-Durham will resume. Phoenix will join these routes from 25th October.
AA is already flying between Heathrow and New York JFK, and this will continue.
In addition to a resumption in international flying, American Airlines is also re-booting its domestic network and hopes to fly at least 55% of its 2019 domestic capacity by July.
To support its domestic operations the airline will be re-opening 11 Admirals Club lounges in 10 cities from 22nd June, including Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, LA, New York JFK and LaGuardia, Miami, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Washington DC. Lounge service will differ from usual, offering just pre-packaged snacks, although you can expect a full service bar.
To help boost passenger demand, American Airlines has unveiled its ‘Summer of Deals’ promotion which includes double miles on flights before 30th September.
Rhys on Instagram Live with App in the Air
If you are free at 4pm today you may wish to tune into Instagram, where App in the Air will be doing a 20 minute live broadcast with Rhys. Their Instagram account is @appintheair.
I imagine the discussion will be centred around the 14 day arrivals quarantine which begins today, as well as the response to Covid-19 by UK airlines, although feel free to throw any airline, points and miles queries at him!
