I have too, MAN-PHL used to be operated by US Airways before the merger with AA

at that time, the route was operated on A330s with AVOD/IFE

for some time, AA continued to operate with the legacy US Airways A330s (just changed the paintjob) then started to operate on 767s no screenback tvs.

We flew that route two years ago. Perfectly fine planes, food etc and we had IFE.

At the time, two years ago, they had a terrible record for delays on the man-phl route so I was really nervous as we only had just under two hours connection time. I think we were about 45 mins late and in the connection window had to go through immigration pick up bags, clear customs, drop bags, go through another security screening (surprisingly long queue here). We only made the flight to MCO because that flight was delayed too.

Had our man phl plane been on time, the 1hr 55 min would hve been just about enough on that day (it was very busy)

I did think the connection time wasnít bad at 2 hours or so. Hopefully be more or less on time.

Be so nice avoiding the massive queues that sometimes greet us at MCO customs. Thatís assuming PHL isnít as busy but probably is with all the connections.

We flew that route last year - I canít remember anything outstanding but neither can I remember anything bad so must have been ok.
