American Airlines is planning to use planes with higher seating capacity for it’s Dallas-Buenos Aires flights according to a Aviacionline article from May 15th. In it they say:
“American Airlines resumed non-stop flights between Dallas and Buenos Aires in December of last year, after a 9-month suspension. Miami was the first destination to be resumed to Ezeiza International Airport in September, 2020.
According to information obtained by Aviacionline through Cirium’s platform, the airline plans to operate between Dallas and Buenos Aires with American’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, with a capacity for 285 passengers. These operations are scheduled to begin from August 18th.
At the moment American Airlines programs a daily flight between both airports. This frequency schedule is subject to change, as it will depend mainly on flight restrictions and the respective authorizations by the National Civil Aviation Administration of Argentina (ANAC).”
Recently New York has also resumed flights to Buenos Aires according to another article from the same source dated May 17th. In it they say:
“Last Wednesday landed at Buenos Aires Ezeiza Airport American’s first flight from New York (JFK). American Airlines had suspended operations between the two cities in March, 2020, as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
At the moment, the airline has four weekly flights between New York and Buenos Aires. The operations will be carried out on American’s Boeing 777-200s(ER), configured with 273 seats.”
This move likely comes as a response to high demand for flights to Buenos Aires coupled with Covid seating restrictions to practice social distancing.
