    Default More News on AA/B6 Partnership, MIA Expansion, 3 TLV Routes???..

    American Airlines is doubling down on MIA with its latest pandemic-era network adjustment.

    The Fort Worth-based carrier will launch a brand-new long-haul flight, add two pins to its route map and increase capacity across Latin American and the Caribbean.
    ďThis move reinforces how much American Airlines is identified by Miami. It is one of the core elements of our airline. We are committed to Miami and this capacity increase really reflects that,Ē said Brian Znotins, Americanís vice president of network planning .

    As such, letís take a look at Americanís sweeping Miami-focused expansion.


    American adds Miami to Tel Aviv

    American hasnít flown to Tel Aviv since January 2016, and now it has plans to serve Israel from three hubs.
    On Monday, the airline announced a brand-new thrice-weekly Miami (MIA) to Tel Aviv (TLV) flight, operated on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays in the eastbound direction by a 273-seat Boeing 777-200.
    Flights take off on June 4 and will be available to book starting on Feb. 15, with the full schedule below.
    Americanís 777-200 sports 37 lie-flat business-class pods, 24 premium economy recliners, 66 extra-legroom economy seats and 146 standard coach seats. The carrier will offer Kosher meals for pre-order as well as Kosher wine on board.
    The MIA -TLV route will start roughly one month after American begins JFK -TLV As part of the carrierís new Northeast-focused alliance with JetBlue, American is launching two long-haul routes from JFK, to Athens and Tel Aviv.


    AA will then follow up with a third new TLV service come October 31, when it finally launches flights from Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), a route that was originally delayed last year due to the pandemic.

    Asked about why American is starting so many flights to Israel during a pandemic, Znotins explained the rationale behind each route.


    The feasibility of the JFK-TLV flights is boosted by ďthe new JetBlue partnership. In the case of Tel Aviv, once we build in the presence and connectivity of JetBlue in the New York area, we recalibrate our list of forecasts for every possible long-haul route and all of a sudden Tel Aviv and Athens jump to first on that list.

    It’s nice to finally see AA growing once again at JFK instead of cutting back. Will hopefully have more nonstop options instead of having to connect in LHR to BA.

    Tuesday, (9/21) The Justice Department, along with six other states and D.C., filed an antitrust suit to STOP AA and B6 "partnership/alliance" calling it a "de facto merger"

    Can anyone tell me anything about the "airside'' shuttle between AA & B6 at JFK?

    Gladly! Just after security at JFK T8, you can get on a shuttle bus that will take you to the B6 terminal over at T5. No need to take the AirTrain and then re-clear security. Very helpful if the AA loads are awful and you want to chance it with B6. Us NY folks donít have the luxury that you LAX folks have of the underground tunnel between 4-5-6 as well as TBIT. 😎

    Bonus, did you see we can now list for Mint on B6 and First on AS and v.v.? 😜 If only they had a similar agreement with other airlines like our oneworld partners.
