American Airlines is to add a second daily London Heathrow – Charlotte flight, reports the Charlotte Observer.
This was a route inherited from American Airlines’ merger partner, US Airways, which has operated on a daily basis.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the 2nd flight will launch on 13 September 2014. The second flight is not yet on sale. It is a reasonable assumption that the flight will be operating using a slot pair sold by Cyprus Airways.
The addition of this flight means it is unlikely that American’s transatlantic business partner British Airways is to launch its own direct service to Charlotte.
The 2nd flight is now on sale. Flight 733 departs Heathrow at 2.25pm and arrives in Charlotte at 6.20pm.
