American Airlines last week asked the US Dept. of Transportation to approve a "modification" to its application to win route authority to China, saying it now wants to operate service to Beijing from Chicago-O'Hare rather than Dallas/Fort Worth to comply with flight distance provisions in its labor agreement with pilots. The AA aircraft going to China would originate at DFW but would fly first to O'Hare and then go to Beijing as a "through flight." The return from Beijing would operate directly to DFW. To win the China service authority, expected to be awarded this month, AA is competing against United Airlines, which wants to link Beijing to its Washington Dulles hub; Northwest Airlines, which has proposed service between Detroit and Shanghai, and Continental Airlines, which would serve Shanghai from Newark.
