As seasons come and seasons go, American Airlines is preparing to suspend some of the routes it operates to limited running, or completely suspending them for the winter season.
Western European destinations will feel the brunt of the winter changes, with American Airlines suspending routes, with the dates listed below:
- New York-JFK to Dublin – Suspended from 25th October 2014, Resumes 29th March 2015
- Chicago O’Hare to Düsseldorf – Suspended from 25th October 2014, Resumes 29th March 2015
- Philadelphia to Zurich – Suspended from 25th October 2014, Resumes 14th April 2015

- Philadelphia to Rome FCO – Suspended from 5th February 2015, Resumes 5th March 2015
- Philadelphia to Barcelona – Suspended from 5th March 2015, Resumes 29th March 2015
Data: American Airlines
Flights to From Milan-MXP will be split, with four flights a week to New York JFK, three flights a week to Miami between 6th January 2015 and March 28th 2015.
(Oh, and it seems American Airlines are operating a new route to Brazil, stopping at Viracopos International Airport (VCP) in Campinas according to the release)
Seasonal changes are not unusual, as it allows airlines to deploy planes on more profitable services.
However, this could be a good time to check your bookings to see if you’re affected, and see if you’re rerouted on different flights and routes during these quieter periods.
Forewarned is forearmed after all… and when it comes to flights, it’s nice to have all the warning you can get…
