American Airlines is the first airline to announce their revised schedule of services for after COVID-19 pandemic. In summer 2019, American Airlines operated service to four destinations in the United States with many being a daily service. However, following the disruption caused to services by the Coronavirus many services have been cancelled or curtailed severely. American has currently cancelled all their European services and have aircraft stored at many locations across the United States. They have now announced a preliminary schedule for the summer of 2020 with a planned resumption of services. The first service to resume will be the long established Chicago O’Hare – Dublin on 4th June. This will be followed by the Dallas Forth-Worth (DFW)- Dublin route on 7th July. The service to Philadelphia will resume on the 7th October.
The service from to Charlotte to Dublin and the Philadelphia to Shannon are currently not planned to be operated again for this year. Hopefully they will return at some stage in the future. American Airlines have been using a mix of types on their routes to Ireland. These range from the single aisle Boeing 757, to the twin aisle Airbus A330 and the two type of Dreamliner’s in the American fleet.
