Showing a bit of cautious optimism, American Airlines announced plans to resume some of its temporarily suspended international flights in a phased-in manner starting June 4, 2020.

The world’s largest airline expects to begin to resume a number of its flights to London Heathrow starting June 4 with daily service from Chicago O’Hare and continuing on June 5 with twice-weekly service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.  Service to London from Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Raleigh-Durham will restart on July 7.

Meanwhile, service from Chicago to Dublin and Athens will restart on June 5, operating five times per week.

American will phase in other flights throughout the summer, including Charlotte-Munich and New York-Paris on July 7.

American previously said it will postpone the launch of several new routes including Philadelphia-Casablanca, Chicago-Krakow, and Seattle-Bangalore until 2021, and similarly delay planned new winter seasonal routes including Los Angeles-Christchurch and Dallas/Fort Worth-Auckland to the winter of 2021.
