Topic: AA 773 & 787 Routes From Mia

With AA finally getting the 773 into the fleet and eventually the 787.
What are the possible routes they can start from Mia?

I know its been said on this site that Mia/Nrt was a possibility & that there
was a chance to start Mia/Jnb or Cpt.

How about Mia/Hnl?

I really can't see either MIA-NRT or MIA-HNL starting. In the former case, while it might be technically feasible, I'm not sure the traffic would be there to support it; AA would be as well off contunuing to route Florida bound/originating pax via DFW or ORD (or even JFK, but that's a bit out of the way).

As for MIA-HNL, both are effectively holiday destinations and I'm not sure if there's much in the way of cultural/business links between FL and HA; like NRT, it could also be much better served via DFW or ORD (or indeed LAX).

South Africa is probably a strong possibility, as are some points in Europe; however these could be served by 772s or 763s and if AA hasn't done so by now, maybe there isn't that much of a market.

MIA-NRT will happen either on JL or AA, with a 787 eventually. The traffic can support at least one flight to Asia. I wouldn't be surprised to see South Africa, Middle East as well. Also, the economics of the 787 might be a better fit for some current South America and European routes.

MIA-HNL? Nope.

Would the 787 be good on MIA-LPB or VVI currently used by a 757?
I forgot which one but one is 14,000 feet above sea level.

MIA-NRT and MIA-HNL will most likely never happen. MIA-HNL would fly straight over DFW so it just makes more sense to fly MIA-DFW and switch planes to HNL. If MIA-NRT some how does work out that's great, but that would be one long flight I would not want to go on.

I know that JL & AA have a good alliance going & it might be one or the other flying this route. I think MIA-NRT has the demand.
The flight time will be a little longer than NRT-JFK or HKG-JFK and they operate it successfully.

I know its two completely different routes. I was just comparing flight times.

MIA-NRT will happen at some point whether it will be sucessful and stay who knows but when the 787s finally come in AA will try it at some point or maybe JAL will give it a shot.

I also thinks JNB will happen at some point but not sure what aircraft they would use.

I'm sure we will see the 787 on plenty of MIA routes especially when the 767s strart to retire. As for 773 routes I would expect a MIA-GRU and/or EZE flight to get one or both. Also would not be surprised to see MIA-LHR get it. What I am more excited about is having more 777s free which hopefully we can see some expansion with AA to Europe like MXP and maybe just maybe TLV.

TLV would be nice. Would it be better served from JFK or MIA?

Would the 787 be a good replacement for the MIA-LPB-VVI-MIA route
when aa starts phasing them out. I know wear oxygen masks when they
land at LPB. Planes are restricted from flying there because of the altitude.
The 757 is only plane capable of making that route.

787 will eventually operate the 767 flights to Rio and Santiago, Chile. Any 777 flight could be upgraded to 77W. We could see 2 777 daily to EZE one being a 772( with only J and Y) and the second a 77W( with First Class). Miami will eventually have its share of teh 77W and 787 AA bounty on the usual routes but we will at some point see an A350-900 from the Usair fleet, hey llent planes for Brazil.

Nah, it was a 762.

I don't think there is any demand from SA to Hawaii. Hawaii is a leisure market and there are plenty that are much more accessible.

If someone really wants to go to Hawaii from South America they can do it through IAH or DFW.

Never in our lifetime.

Of all the routes talked about in this thread, MIA-NRT has the greatest chance. Its a perfect 787 route and should be marketed as a Florida-Japan nonstop flight. The target should not and would not be Latin America connections as all the big ones are already served via DFW or JFK. MIA-Asia is a market that could mature over time.

Hey mia305, welcome to a.net. Love the enthusiasm! You seem to have posted the question about LPB/VVI several times in this thread. People have seen it, but it appears that nobody has an answer for you just yet. I can assure you that the folks at AA won't let a money making route disappear and will have some sort of plan for it.

There isn't a market for ICN the same way there is for NRT... mainly because NRT offers connections to the rest of Asia through AA's partner JAL.

Route development is an inherently geographic/ economic science. Instead of throwing darts at a map to pick new routes (even though sometimes it feels like airlines do just that), they focus on where different demographics are and where they want to be and how they can be flown through their route network optimally. With that in mind... it is important to think about what makes sense for AA and for the people it flies when proposing new route options as opposed to just naming far-flung locations just for the sake of argument.

As for my own 2 cents... I see these new routes coming to MIA on AA

Would AA put the 77W on the Mia-Lax route. I know its a heavily

Only as a way to move the aircraft around from hub to hub. AA won't waste valuable 77W flights on domestic routes when they can be flown internationally. That is why the schedules change on these routes so frequently... simply aircraft placement.

There’s no question that MIA will get 77Ws and 787s in the long run, but expect them to show up on the same routes that we are very familiar with out of MIA.

I don’t think AA will start any new routes with the 77W. It has a slight range advantage over the 772ER, but barely any advantage in real world operations. The 77W was built because AA has some very high capacity routes. In particular LHR, GRU and EZE are very high capacity destinations in AA’s network. This is what the 77W is being purchased for. It’s got lower CASM than the 772, and will be a great fit for markets where AA has a large market share. With Brazil and LHR slot restricted, it makes the most sense to be deployed there. I say there is zero chance whatsoever of MIA getting any new destinations with the 77W that are not previously operated.

The 787-9 will bring some opportunity. It is a little smaller than the 772, so it may be a good airplane to operate on routes that don’t quite have enough capacity for a 777. I personally see the 787 being more useful in Asia for AA out of DFW, ORD, JFK, LAX and PHX. For MIA, outside of NRT, TLV & JNB, almost every international destination imaginable from MIA is within the 767’s range. If AA won’t try it on the 767, then they won’t on a 787. AA doesn’t operate to TLV from JFK which is a huge market, so I don’t see them launching from MIA. JFK-JNB is shorter than MIA-JNB, and again a larger market, so I’m not sure we’d see MIA-JNB. As for MIA-NRT, I think the chances are higher for JAL on the route since they are more interested in using their 787s to smaller US destinations than AA is on starting new international routes.

If AA was interested in HNL or any additional routes in Europe or South America, I would expect it to start with the 767.

Sure, but MIA has frequency where DFW has one and sometimes two daily flights. Also, easier to make the initial operating base for the 77W at DFW where they can have a spare 772 ready to go as it gets introduced into service.

Why? Miami-Los Angeles is a huge local market. Every year over 1,000,000 local passengers fly between the two cities. And that doesn't even take into account the over 1,000,000 more that connect onwards. I believe it's the sixth largest market from Miami - after NYC, D.C., Atlanta, Chicago and Boston.

Because Dallas is the biggest crew base and allows the 77W to be familiarized with a large amount of pilots and FAs.

I think it's likely to come back on AA or AY in the mid-term future. Large local market and AY joining the JV adds a lot of synergy to help make up for the low yield.

AY clearly has some trans-Atlantic moves in the works, because if it didn't, it wouldn't be putting the cost and effort into joining the JBA. Miami is the next logical expansion past JFK and Chicago.

AA doesn’t operate to TLV from JFK which is a huge market, so I don’t see them launching from MIA. JFK-JNB is shorter than MIA-JNB, and again a larger market, so I’m not sure we’d see MIA-JNB.

I'm pretty sure AA will keep US's TLV destination. JFK is a bigger market but it also has more competition. Aren't the yields greater from MIA? That would be the biggest indication of the potential for JNB and TLV.

With the high demand from the local and connecting pax between MIA- LAX and if it were possible
why wouldn't AA put all widebodies on that route.

Again... they use their widebodies on routes that REQUIRE widebodies (i.e. long haul international routes). The 777s on that route are there for the sake of moving aircraft around the network. AA prefers frequency on the route so rather than 5 777s they can fly 8 or 9 757s (making these numbers up).

Well, but AA is already doing 3 daily MIA/EZE/MIA rotations. Why would they reduce capacity?

I am NOT suggesting AA go from 3 to 2 daily, they do that normaly. They fly 3 around Christmas and the summer time in the USA. Since the 777 would otherwise sit on the ground all day at EZE, flying day time back to Miami requires no additional airplanes.

Huh? I lost you there. So what were you proposing then? Turning the second daily into a daytime flight? AA would never do that - daytime flights are perfect for when there is high demand from Argentina - Dec to April and July-August, but during the rest of the year they are yield-killers as most high fare paying frequent flyers avoid them like the plague. Sorry but your proposal makes no sense vis-a-vis the actual demand patterns from deep South America.

Studies show daily roundtrip passenger frequencies on both 747-400 and 777-300ER, with load factors ranging from 83% to 85%. Japan-Florida O&D passenger traffic ranges between 118,000 and 143,000 annual passengers with 163,000 to 205,000 overall passengers. Miami offers the most opportunities for connections to Brazil and all of Latin American/Caribbean markets for Tokyo’s 325,000 annual O&D traffic travelling to/from Latin America and the Caribbean.

I would expect a 77W, and 747 to fly NRT-MIA but time will tell if a 787 will take the job

No need for it.

ORD HKG at some point with the new American.

CX already does it.

Try DFW-HKG.

DCA Jet,

clearly you don't realize the flight to EZE stay on the ground all day for a nightly return to Miami, but during the high season AA operates a third daytime flight with the same airplane. It becomes 2 nightly daily flights and one daytime flight for 3 daily flights.

ANA? I doubt it though seeing only 5 in fleet.

I would see 2 77W and 1-2 787 daily.

Especially since they are domestic models:

Also consider that MIA is a fortress hub for AA so any non-OW airline would have a tough time drawing loyalty.

I'm not sure what the difference between the 118k and 205k numbers is, but if I add the 205k+325k and divide by 365 and then by 2, I get 737 PDEW. That's 2 77Ws daily. Assuming that all of the passengers between Japan and Florida, Caribbean, Latin America took these flights and none of them went via LAX, DFW, IAH, ATL, JFK etc. For a market that has 0 non-stops right now this feels like you're being extremely optimistic.

AY clearly has some trans-Atlantic moves in the works, because if it didn't, it wouldn't be putting the cost and effort into joining the JBA. Miami is the next logical expansion past JFK and Chicago.

What kind of work that needs to be done for joining JBA? I thought since they are in the same alliance and mostly codeshare flights, the effort is minimal?

Thanks,

Indeed, those domestic 747s do not have nearly the range required for even a flight to the west coast.
