I hate to waste a whole topic on this question, but I have to ask! Didn't AA operate an Atlanta - New York - Atlanta route at one time? I thought that it possibly was operated out of LGA. If they did, when did it stop and does anybody know why they stopped it? If they didn't, why haven't they started one? (Other than the Delta factor!) I think they could sustain at least one or two flights a day (at least an RJ). They fly between New York and many other large airline hubs. So all you AA fanatics, please dig out the old timetables that you have and check, PLEASE! Thanks.

um, what other factors would their be? Delta/Song is the second strongest airline in New York, and by far the strongest in ATL. Add Airtran to that on top.

The only reason would be that adding ATL as a destination increases the deman from other feeders on the system that want to go to/from ATL. However, if you already serve ATL from other hubs such as DFW, pax can get there just as easily. Of course, with Delta's presence in DFW, that may already be covered. It's a fun math game to solve. (Try writing the Airline AI for a game that does exactly this!)

AA has never operated between NY and Atlanta, atleast in the last 20-25 years.

TWA, PAN AM flew from JFK

CO from EWR and briefly from LGA after Eastern folded, CO flew LGA-ATL from '91-'92.

Then of course DL and Eastern.

Also Kiwi flew from EWR-Atlanta.

Eastern Air lines flt # 701, EWR-MCO Boeing 757

Don't forget PeopleExpress ATL-EWR and Air Atlanta ATL-JFK both in the mid '80s.

AA really has no business serving any non-hub destination from ATL. There is no reason to go up against DL's fortress, especially because it is a large market that has tons of service to other large-market hubs (CO to EWR, UA to ORD, etc.) I don't know how AmericanConnection maintains the two daily J31s to BNA, but I guess someone besides DL has to serve that route (still, who flies the J31 when you can fly a jet?)

Simple fact, with DL hubs at ATL and JFK, I can't see why AA would want to enter here.
