What is happening with AA at PHL?
I just received a schedule change email from AA for my FRA-PHL flight on 12/12. I’m now booked FRA-CLT-PHL. When looking at the schedule is appears the FRA-PHL non-stop is gone. Last week we learned PHL-BRU was begging dropped along with PHL-ZRH, now this. Is the shine coming off PHL? Or is this just a C check without a replacement aircraft.
I think there were rumors about Philadelphia, Phoenix, or Charlotte being on the chopping block a while back but AA still has a pretty sizable presence there. Probably impossible to tell what their future plans are without having inside knowledge.
Maybe the FRA-PHL has become a seasonal flight. I’m booked (at least as I write) next June on that flight. Hopefully it’s just a few adjustments. European tourism is way down this year.
I have a friend who is an AA FA based out of PHL and she hasn’t heard anything. And a new Flagship Lounge is scheduled to open there in 2017 so I’m optimistic.
