"MIAMI — American Airlines will soon add several transatlantic routes from its Philadelphia hub while making large cuts to its international network at New York’s JFK. Today, American announced routes from Philadelphia to Budapest (BUD) and Prague (PRG). Both routes will begin May 4th, 2018 and will be operated by the 767-300. They will be the first international 767 routes from Philadelphia since American retired the 767-200 several years ago. Currently, all long-haul flights from Philadelphia are operated by the Airbus A330. This also marks the first time legacy AA wide-body equipment is swapping to legacy US Airways hubs.
As Philadelphia sees transatlantic growth, American will be making serious cuts to its JFK hub. American will cut one of two daily flights to Paris (CDG), cease service to Manchester, and move its Zurich route to Philadelphia. These cuts signify American betting on Philadelphia over JFK and surrendering the international New York market to Delta." - Airways.
