    LINK.

    So no more AA metal flying BOS-LHR, all three flights out of BOS will now operate on BA metal with AA codeshares.

    Keep in mind that under JBV the metal can alternate from time to time. For example DL and AF have alternated metal from ORD-CDG on occasion. But for now, no AA metal out of BOS to LHR.

    And another route where EVIPs are no longer useful. :(

    Not too much of a surprise, give the ATI and AA's current strategy, but a bit sad still.

    My thoughts exactly. AA is adding metal to a LHR-MIA frequency with BA dropping one, but losing all 3 BOS routes is tough on upgraders. Not unsurprising though.

    Wasn't this route flown with 757s? Always regrettable to lose a route, but there's no way I'd willingly (I realize some people may have no choice) fly a narrow-body TATL.
