Hey everyone....I've been in DEN for the past 3 weeks....it feels great to be home! I must say DEN is a great city, I finally got a chance to do some exploring of the area, and I'm impressed.  Smile

Anyway, as of October, AA is adding a 2nd daily nonstop MSY-LGA with an MD-80. This is good to see.

Also, a 5th USAirways MSY-CLT flight returns as of September.

Tom...Fred...any exciting news while I've been gone? And yeah...the AC announcement stinks...hope they will return with DAILY service.

Good news down the Mississippi, any guesses on what WN is gonna do with all their new gates at MSY?
I wish AA would add some flights here at STL, their bastard hub!  Big grin

Good news for MSY, it lacks a lot of service to and from NYC.

As far as STL, it appears as though AA is reducing the number of flights in and out of STL. There used to be four or five daily flights to/from TPA, and now there are only three. The 757s used on some those flights will be downgraded to MD-80s later this summer.

Good news for LGA too. This shows that American is getting very strong in LGA, especially with its large MD-80 fleet. It's almost a hub. If you look at anytime, day and night, American's passenger concourse and tarmac near the maintenace hangars, you'll see at least three MD-80's parked there.

STL used to be TWA's hub, that's the only reason American has a hub there. But you're right, that hub is getting weaker because it is located just between ORD and DFW, their two strongest hub for domestic flights. Three domestic main hubs in the same time zone, that's redundant. I think that in the long run, the STL hub will be dismantled like RDU and BNA were in the mid 90's. From STL American will just keep domestic flights to LGA, ORD, DFW and MIA, and maybe LAX.

The only other airline that has three main hubs in the same time zone is US Airways: PIT, PHL and CLT. BWI is no longer a hub.
I'm not sure about Delta, I know they have ATL and CVG but I don't know if MCO is still a main hub.
These two airlines, Delta and US Airways, are also very strong in LGA.

Well, the airport itself is becoming rather skeptical of TCA... as is being made apparent in some of its press releases.

I wrote Michelle not too long ago, and though she tried to put a positive spin on it; she didnt seem all too convinced that this startup has its ducks in a row  Sad
