The City of Philadelphia, Delaware County, Tinicum Township and Interboro School District have reached an agreement that will allow the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) to move ahead with its airport expansion plan.

Supposedly the reason why Delta is flying the LHR-PHL route is because American Airlines and British Airways had to give up one of their slots as part of the agreement for the American-US Airways merger.

American could have taken over one of the daily rotations instead of Delta because it will have a large base out of Philly... yet again, the Delta flight could continue on to Atlanta, Minneapolis, or Detroit since the B757 can come from any of those hub airports. Yet I was thinking also: with American taking over from US Airways, JFK and PHL will both become AA hubs, especially that JFK handles a lot of international flights by AA -- and they are very close to each other.

Actually American could not have taken over one of the daily rotations on the London-Philadelphia route because European Union regulators approved the American Airlines-US Airways merger on the condition that a third competitor to fly between Philadelphia and London.

EU approves air merger, requires London-Phila. competition

Since British Airways and the merged American Airlines-US Airways have a joint business venture and a financial stake in transatlantic flights, it would have essentially meant that they would have had a virtual monopoly on the Philadelphia-London route.

Oh I see... United could have taken over that route too, but it could mean question marks regarding its proximity to Newark, which is a major UA hub.
