American Airlines will add 4x weekly service from DFW to Tel Aviv, Israel (TLV) from September 9, 2020. This route will be operated by Boeing 787-9 aircraft. Tickets available from October 10, 2019.

Schedule:
AA018 DFW2220 – 1910+1TLV 789
AA015 TLV2205 – 0505+1DFW 789

I guess American has resolved whatever legal issues it had in Israel regarding Trans World Airlines (TWA) ending service there. Something with employee lawsuits or some such.

In the same article that mentioned Tel Aviv, they also said that the Iceland flight will not be back. They are switching that to Philly.

American’s fortress hub giveth...and it taketh away. AA put on a daily flight to squash the Icelandic carriers on the route, then when those guys pulled out, they canceled it.

Yeah, now that Icelandair and WOW have been seen off, no need to resume DFW-KEF. I suppose if it had been profitable it would have returned...
