Two things Walmart and Tyson. Walmart purchases 90% of the tickets that on AE flights (especially on the LGA-XNA route) even if the plane is empty. From DFW to XNA that plane is rarely empty. From ORD the loads were so high that it was transferred to AA on a F100 (AE still does weekend service but no overnighters).
Plus from what I've heard the XNA-LAX flight is going to get a real meal service, some no other AE flight does (the exception is the N.E. Business market flight BOS-LGA-DCA, but those are small snack packs)
