RDU-BDL averages about 284 passengers a day. I think AE is doing a good job. Plus with N/S service to BOS, PVD, and NY.. all areas around BDL are covered. I couldn't see another airline on that route any time soon. Unless RDU was to become another focus city.

Yeah because of AA's mini hub, and the industries around the Raleigh area AA's got the O/D and connecting traffic covered. I flew the route back in Nov 2002 and the flight down and back to RDU were full, I was happy to see. On arrival to RDU they announced a few connections so people were taking advantage of that.

My only complaint with the AE service is that they only fly the RJ's. I am a large man - 6'3"-260- and I always fly F/J whenever I fly anywhere. This has nothing to do with better service and everything to do the size of the seats. I have flown tooooooo many flights on the RJ's and it is not a comfortable ride.
Oh how I miss Midway Airlines. A class act right to then end.
