American Airlines is expanding to Europe in S19, not to Romania
For the summer of 2019, American Airlines has announced the launch of 9 new routes to destinations in Europe. At the same time, other routes will be canceled or suspended, upon request and offer.
The big airlines have come to plan their operations well in advance. On August 21, American Airlines announced expansion plans in Europe for the summer season 2019. Thus, last summer, 9 new routes will be inaugurated between the United States and Europe. Instead, other existing routes will suffer. There will be canceled routes, others will be suspended, after check-in and offer.
But let's get back to the new routes. American Airlines will fly from Philadelphia to Berlin (TXL), Bologna (BLQ) and Dubrovnik (DBV). The routes will be seasonal, operated between June and September 2019. They will join the seasonal route Philadelphia - Edinburgh (EDI).
