AA To Start LAX-SJO

American Airlines is launching new non-stop service between Los Angeles and San Jose, Costa Rica this winter. The new, year-round service starts 16 December 2004 and is one of two new Latin American routes AA will announce this week (the other is Miami-Montevideo).

Schedule:
AA 934 SJO 1600-2101 LAX 757 xTuTh
AA 927 LAX 2330-0720 SJO 757 xTuTh

This is American's third Latin American destination from LAX, joining San Jose del Cabo and San Salvador.

This is also American's fourth non-stop destination from San Jose. AA operates, during peak travel periods, four daily flights between San Jose and Miami, two daily to Dallas, and four weekly to JFK. AA also flies to Costa Rica's Guanacaste Libera airport three times a week from Miami.

It is great to hear the long-rumoured LAX-SJO route is now reality. Hopefully, the other long rumoured new AA route from SJO, FLL-SJO, will also become reality in the near future.

It is amazing how on top of AA scheduling you are. I'm impressed!
If I'm not mistaken, a few years ago AA operated from Lax to GUA/SJO/SAL.
What has changed to make them re-enter these markets? Also, is there any chance that the LAX/GDL will return? I think MX operates that but AA could codeshare with MX and operate with AA metal.

Comments?

That is indeed good news and long overdue.

MAH - Have you heard anymore about the 738 LAX-RDU n/s? It sure is getting old having to change in DFW/ORD. I would make the change via STL but simply can't fly the RJ for the 2 hours+ flight to STL



Oh how I miss Midway Airlines. A class act right to then end.

If you're already contemplating giving HP some money for the LAX-PHX portion, you might as well just fly 'em PHX-SJO nonstop instead - it has become a fairly popular route for them.

How about SFO to San Juan, Puerto Rico. I do not think there exist right now a direct flight from any airline between the west coast and Puerto Rico.

We always welcome new AA flights here at SJO... We used to have the LAX flight years ago and now we are happy to have it back...
UA discontinued the ORD service via MEX... great opportunity for AA for a new non-stop SJO/ORD in addition to the popular SJO/JFK...

UA starts ORD-SJO non-stops in December. It will be a Saturday-only 757.

There is no market for SJU-SFO. American Airlines already flies LAX-SJU five times a week.

It would be awesome if they operated BOG-LAX or BOG-DFW.


You can blame the CAA for lack of AA's service to Colombia, a huge market. They have been wanting to operate FLL-BOG, but were denied.

The 757 is just picking up more and more usage on AA's routes...I expect AA will further expand them into Europe and maybe even start serving them to HNL...

Thrust,

I think in the past AA has used the 757 1x from LAX-HNL. Not sure if it still is.

You wont see AA do LAX-DL), Mexico">GDL for a while. Only 2 US flag carriers are allowed to fly LAX-DL), Mexico">GDL at any given time. Right now, AS and DL have it and I doubt they would want to give it up, given the massive number of DL), Mexico">GDL natives that live in the LA area.

Avianca served LAX from BOG via MEX until a few years ago. They dropped the MEX-LAX segment because loads absolutely sucked. I had one cousin who was a really frequent flier between BOG and LAX, and always said that the airplane took off from MEX with no more than 20 passengers.

You're right Mark, but they adopt this protective attitude mainly in cases where AA is to compete head-to-head with AV, which is, in my opinion, more than spoiling the airline. They had the chance to give the FLL route to AV, and they inmediately did it. But I think that if AA applies for a three or four weekly service from DFW, they have pretty good chances of getting the rights.

Hope to see more AA down here...

They already use them on SJC-HNL, SFO-HNL, and three of the five LAX-HNL frequencies (including the Saturday-only frequency).

But I think that if AA applies for a three or four weekly service from DFW, they have pretty good chances of getting the rights.


I disagree. If it was that easy, DFW-BOG is a route they would already have. The Colombian government doesn't play easy with anybody. CO has been wanting expanded Colombia service from IAH for years with no luck.

Not yet for service from IAH-BOG anytime soon and probably you will wait to see what happening with CAA. It want to make service from IAH to BOG flight and it is already service from EWR, correct? I know about those flights are going to Bogota flight.

MAH 4546,
You are right.
The 757 operation will expand to Europe. Some interesting UK points are being evaluated for next summer.

It is true that BRS is under active review. However, the list is quite long and even BHX gets a look-in.

I also heard over the weekend that AA will suspend service to Belo Horizonte (CNF), as a result of this expansion.

As a lot of these European 757 routes could be seasonal, AA would want a winter market to the Caribbean/Latam to slot the programme to Europe with. CNF may be a victim of this if it is ayear-round operation. Alternatively it may not have performed.
