It seems American Airlines wants in on the current Boston party, with the airline planning to launch a daily service between Boston and London Heathrow.
The new service will kick off on the 29th March, operating daily between Boston and Heathrow
AA108 will be the outbound departure from Boston in the evening peak, whilst AA109 will return as a new morning departure from Heathrow.
This will complement the existing services by British Airways who operate four services a day to Boston – a total of five now through the new joint venture agreement.
The airline will use a three-class Boeing 777-200, configured with
- 37 Flagship Business seats (1-2-1 formation)
- 24 Premium Economy seats (2-4-2 formation)
- 66 Main Cabin Extra (3-4-3 formation)
- 146 Main Cabin seats (3-4-3 formation)
Vasu Raja, American’s Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning said
“Our new nonstop flight, combined with the service provided by our Atlantic Joint Business, gives customers the most robust schedule and the most premium seats between Boston and London,”
“Boston customers have been asking for more service and we’re delivering with this new flight”
The Boston Flight Party
Boston is becoming a hotbed of flight action, with JetBlue’s long haul plans taking shape and Delta Air Lines/Virgin Atlantic trying to stake a claim out of Boston too.
Considering LEVEL is also joining the party next summer too, two of the three alliances are very much eyeing each other at Boston, whilst a third airline plans out its next move, there’s a lot going on at Boston Logan Airport.
It will be interesting to see who makes the next move at Boston, as airlines are seeing a lot of options and possibilities there.
