American Announces New York - Newcastle, England, Service; New Route Begins May 2006
Wednesday July 27, 10:35 am ET

FORT WORTH, Texas, July 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Airlines today announced it will begin service between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newcastle, in England's booming North East region -- the first time the two cities have been linked by nonstop scheduled air service. The route will be American's 27th international destination out of JFK.

American will begin serving the route on May 1, 2006, using its 188-seat Boeing 757 aircraft with all-coach seating. In flight, passengers will enjoy American's award-winning International Flagship Service, featuring a selection of dining, beverage and entertainment options.

Newcastle is at the center of the UK's commercially thriving North East region. Its airport, Newcastle International, is the fastest-growing regional airport in the United Kingdom. More than 2.5 million people visited Newcastle in 2003, the most recent year in which figures are available.

Newcastle was once known for its coal mining and ship building. Today it features numerous multinational companies in the region and many impressive historic and cultural sites, as well as its world-famous Newcastle Brown Ale, which was first brewed in 1890.

"England's North East and Newcastle are undergoing impressive economic and cultural growth," said Henry Joyner, American's Senior Vice President - Planning. "This new route will provide convenient service in both directions for business and leisure travelers alike. We're delighted to bring Newcastle its first-ever nonstop service to and from New York."

The new route will also provide an important cargo link between New York and Newcastle, adding another flight to the 300 tons of cargo capacity American currently flies each day between the United States and United Kingdom. The New York - Newcastle flight will provide shippers with guaranteed service for high-value or time-critical air freight.

Following is the tentative schedule for American's New York - Newcastle service:

JFK-Newcastle Flight Departs Arrives 230 7:45 p.m. 7:30 a.m. (next day) Newcastle-JFK Flight Departs Arrives 231 11:00 a.m. 1:35 p.m. About American Airlines

Anybody else see Aprey on CNBC this morning. Thought he sounded like a stand-up guy UNTIL the subject of employee compensation came up. Becky Quick asked a very direct question based on an AMR pilot telling her he could make more money running a convience store then flying for AMR. Well 'all of the sudden' Aprey claimed his audio feed was breaking-up. He then went into a speech about how management and labor are committed to working together to make the airline sucessful. Well Ms Quick asked the question again and again Aprey claimed he couldn't hear her. Needless to say the question went unanswered. Hmm...

I saw the interview this morning on CNBC. Becky Quick looked a little stunned that Aprey would not answer the questions. You could tell she knew he was evading the question.

I thought it funny when the one reporter asked if AMR and other airlines for that matter, had to pass on the fuel costs to the customer. (The answer should have been crap yes.) Employees wages, benefits and other perks have been cut far enough.

Otherwise good interview.
