This one had been doing the rounds through the rumour mill for a time but it looks to have been confirmed over the weekend that American are ending their JFK-MAN service to focus more on their PHL hub.

New York JFK – Manchester 1 daily seasonal 757 service cancelled


Admittedly it was seasonal only but I imagine this will see a few cheers from Crawley Towers as this means VS are the only airline to offer a business class product between MAN-JFK. The only JFK competition now is Thomas Cook and United who fly to EWR with 757s.

I'm sure I read somewhere that VS are also carrying on the MAN>JFK service over the winter as well, though it's dropping to 3 or 4 days a week over the winter season.

Edit - found the info here

VS and TCX have done their best to unseat AA and have succeeded. Great to see VS operating the JFK route over the winter too (albeit with a reduced frequency) leaving AA to concentrate on PHL all year round and bringing the 788 back next Spring on the ORD route.

JFK is doing so well under VS (considering the full flights I have been on) and long may that continue!
