Yes it can be supported during the busy summer season (June-Sept) and winter (dec-jan)...for other times of the year, I think that one B 767 frequency will be eliminated. However if BA is dropping DFW altogether (which isnt likely) then 3 freq's is fine due to extensive BA/IB codesharing.

AA also has a 1-stop (in ORD) 777 flight to LHR from DFW. I imagine that AA gets pretty good yields on the London flights. It wouldn't be a shocker if the third flight was dropped during the winter months though.
BA does well at DFW all year. They somehow do better than LH, which is pretty impressive considering the amount of connections from FRA compared to Gatwick.

This is actually a great move for American. A very large percentage of AA´s pax on STL-LGW were connecting from other cities. With the downgrading of the STL hub, the yields on the flight would have diminished. At the same time, simply eliminating the flight would cause a significant loss in revenue. By transferring the flight to DFW, AA can keep these connecting pax on AA and not lose them to another airline.
