FL is starting 2 daily DFW-LAX on 7/1. Here's the response from the 800 lb gorilla. Can't say this wasn't expected.



American Unveils New, Low-Fare Structure Between Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles-Area Airports
Thursday June 10, 7:02 am ET
Walk-Up Coach Fares From Just $199*; Advance Purchase Fares as Low as $99*
Competitive Fares, 39 Daily Nonstops, AAdvantage(R) Miles, 'More Room in Coach' Make American Preferred Choice of Travelers Between DFW and Greater L.A. Area


FORT WORTH, Texas, June 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Airlines today unveils a new, low-fare structure between Dallas/Fort Worth and the Greater Los Angeles area.
Effective immediately, American's one-way, walk-up Coach fare on nonstop flights between Dallas/Fort Worth and five Los Angeles-area airports will be priced from just $199*, with other one-way fares as low as $99* with a 14-day advance purchase. And none of American's new fares has Saturday-night stay requirements. The five Los Angeles airports are Los Angeles International; John Wayne Airport in Orange County; Ontario; Long Beach; and Bob Hope Airport in Burbank.

"American's new, low fare structure means that a trip between DFW and the L.A. area will be extremely affordable, whether you're traveling for business or on a leisurely family vacation," said Dan Garton, executive vice president- Marketing.

Garton noted that customers should book flights early and be flexible with their choice of departure times -- especially during the busy summer travel season -- in order to get the lowest fares.

"Because these new fare levels are so attractive, and have no Saturday- night stay requirement, we expect them to be quite popular and purchased quickly," he said. "In addition, during the peak summer season, $99 seats for travel on Fridays through Sundays are extremely limited. So the earlier you book, and the more flexible you are on departure times, the better your chances of getting the lowest fares."

Travelers can use American's Web site, AA.com, to search for the best bargains at the desired departure times, or call American's reservation offices at (800) 433-7300 for assistance, Garton added.

Here is a sample of American's new, one-way fares between Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles; Orange Country; Ontario; Long Beach and Burbank. Fares shown are non-refundable and seats are limited. For complete details, see the terms and conditions below or visit www.aa.com :

One-Way Fare Amount Starting From* Advance Purchase Requirement
$99 Coach 14 Days
$139 Coach 7 Days
$169 Coach 3 Days
$199 Coach None
$349 First Class None

Note: $99 fares have extremely limited availability on Fridays through
Sundays through Labor Day.


This summer, American will offer 15 daily nonstop flights each way between DFW and Los Angeles; nine nonstops each way to/from John Wayne Airport; six each way to/from Ontario; five each way to/from Long Beach; and four each way to/from Burbank. That's a total of 39 daily nonstop flights each way between DFW and the Los Angeles area -- far more than any other carrier.

As seasoned travelers know, however, American offers its customers much more than just low fares and frequent flights.

"Most of our DFW-Los Angeles area flights -- including all to and from Los Angeles, Orange County and Burbank -- will feature 'More Room Throughout Coach' seating that provides additional legroom between rows," said Garton. "And all the flights will provide the opportunity to earn and redeem AAdvantage frequent-flyer miles. In addition, each flight will offer a First- Class cabin, and of course, exceptional service from our employees both on the ground and in the air."

Travelers on board American's flights will also enjoy a number of other amenities that will make their trip more comfortable, relaxing and productive. For instance, along with "More Room" seating, most of American's aircraft feature large overhead storage bins that allow carry-on luggage to be stored "wheels first," creating more overall storage space and making it easier to stow and remove bags.

For those who like to "stay connected" during their trip, powerports are located at each seat in the First-Class cabin and are conveniently placed throughout the Coach cabin on most of American's aircraft, meaning passengers can work en route, operate their own CD or DVD players, or even recharge cell phones.

On the ground, American provides travelers an oasis for work or relaxation at Admirals Club® facilities in Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles and Orange County.

"When you consider all that American offers like great fares, lots of flights, the industry's leading frequent-flyer program, spacious cabins and many other features, it's clear nobody beats American between Dallas/Fort Worth and the Los Angeles area," said Garton.

American Airlines is the world's largest carrier. American, American Eagle and the AmericanConnection regional carriers serve more than 250 cities in over 40 countries with nearly 4,200 daily flights. The combined network fleet numbers more than 1,000 aircraft. American's award-winning Web site, AA.com, provides users with easy access to check and book fares, plus personalized news, information and travel offers. American Airlines is a founding member of the oneworld Alliance.

* Terms and Conditions
Fares are for one-way travel, and are nonrefundable/nontransferable
(except First-Class fare, which is refundable). Seats are limited.
Higher Coach and First-Class fares are also available. Fares are valid

are subject to change without notice. Fares shown do not include a

14 days, respectively, prior to departure or within 24 hours of making

walk-up fare may be made up to the day of departure; however, tickets
must be purchased within 24 hours after the reservation is made, up to

Nope. What AA said was:
"Most of our DFW-Los Angeles area flights -- including all to and from Los Angeles, Orange County and Burbank -- will feature 'More Room Throughout Coach' seating that provides additional legroom between rows," said Garton.

That means no 757 or A300 on the DFW-LAX, SNA and BUR flights.

It's amazing what a little competitive accountability can do for airfares. Naturally, American no doubt plans to offer those kind of fares from DFW to SJC, SFO, SEA, and SAN.  Yeah sure DOJ should watch closely to ensure that AA is only matching fares on the same capacity AirTran is offering.

Well, this should not have surprised anyone. Again with the over zealous response to a LCC entrance into the market. Let me guess.... they are just trying to protect market share.  Insane I hope its worth it because yields are going to plummet. Here are AA's average oneway fares from DFW to So Cal before the fare sale.

LAX $281
SNA $232
ONT $225
BUR $212
LGB $207

Can someone please tell me why an airline should be more worried about market share as opposed to profits?

I have never heard of an airline using market share to pay debt or give employee bonuses.

I would love to use market share to pay my credit card debt. I have 100% market share over my two bedroom Waco apartment and I also have 100% market share over my Toyota Tacoma as I drive to work. Think MBNA would go for that?

Atcboy--LOL! I'm going to remember this one.

Here's the difference between you and network airlines. You don't have high-priced lobbyists to bribe the government ("campaign contributions") to co-sign your mortgage or car loan, so that you can mismanage your life, go bankrupt, and still be propped up in a mismanaged lifestyle.

ATA L1011

I wonder if DL will follow suit on its flights to LAX,Ontario and John Wayne.


Even though DL is my carrier of choice, they are struggling to hold their hub status @ DFW, but the offering to ONT and SNA is a little weak, [3x and 2x daily on CRJ-700 respectively]. DFW-LAX is acceptable with 2x daily 738, 1x MD-90, 1x MD-88. Load factors are actually good on the DFW-LAX and DFW-SFO routes.

I would not be surprised if soon, AirTran has more seats to LAX than DL from DFW! American will hold their own, sustain the competion and charge forward.

FL's new routes DFW-SoCal will be @ DL's expense IMHO. B4REAL

This is clearly predatory pricing. If I were FL, I would instantly file a major lawsuite against AA barring them from matching or undercutting FL's fares. AA did this with Vanguard, National, WestPac, Braniff, and that airline with DC9's that flew out of DAL. AA has a history of this type of thing.

"AA has a history of this sort of thing"

The entire industry has a history of this sort of thing. It's called the post-deregulation airline industry. It's a dirty game that's for sure, Airtran either's gonna have to learn to play, or take a hike. They did it against Delta in Delta's hometown so it's not beyond possibility they can repeat the performance in Dallas.
