Great...so AA at ORD is going to consist of 1,500 ERJ-135 rotations a day, and the only mainline flight will be the 777 to LHR...oh, joy!  Big grin

At least for DAY AA would be dropping mainline to DFW. Most of AA's flights to midwest cities out of ORD are already RJ's.

Man I sure hope this doesn't affect MCI. There would probably be at least 30 RJ flights a day if not more. It would be such a sad sight to see no more S80's.

DAYFL- Having flown DFW-DAY and back about 50 times in the past 2 years, I have never seen any of those S80's empty. I am willing to bet they keep the S80 and maybe add another flight with AE

The flights I've been on out of MCI have been quite full. I don't see how they could replace the 80's with any kind of RJ.

FALSE RUMOR!!!!!!

This was merely eluded to.

Someone on another thread posted how AA was to make this "Big Annoucement" on Mon 8/9.

Well, Monday came and went, and the only real news was re-alignment of the pilot bases and aircraft types.

No large layoffs, no large draw-down of mainline, no route cancelations, no nothing.

Everyone jumped to conclusions, and the rumors multiplied, as usually happens on here and some people take them for facts.

While it was a false rumour, it is undeniable that, when the winter schedule comes, AA will likely cut a mainline station or two. They do it all the time, so there is no reason that it won't happen this fall either. With the Fokkers gone next month, AA has a lot less planes to operate a bulked up schedule, so Eagle will get some more flying.

Usually AA winter cuts happen on 31 October, 15 December, and 31 January. Stations that are at risk of maybe loosing mainline service are probably Louisville, Huntsville, Dayton, Birmingham, and Memphis (those are based on my opinion, not any rumours or fact). The winter schedule is almost always updated the third or fourth week of August, so we shall see then if there are cuts.

I'll go along with MAH4546's hunch that DAY will lose the two remaining mainline flights to DFW(although the loads are consistently high). Like I stated in the announcement thread...the people I talked to that stand to lose the most weren't too interested in talking about the situation. Whether that is becuase nothing is known or not....I don't know. I won't be surprised if the 80's are cut and replaced by CRJ7's. I do know the station manager is a long time AA employee, which I'm sure AA can replace with somebody that makes considerably less. Makes sense to me to go all RJ.....but only time will tell.

TriJetFan-CLE also isn't having massive and far-reaching traffic problems relating to too many rotations at the airport and not enough capacity to get those planes in and out, unlike ORD...

That's RDU also. We have mainline to DFW, MIA, ORD, LGW.. the rest is AE.. and that is a LOT of eagle traffic.. but it serves RDU well. And I'm sure any station that is dowgraded will be served well by AE. No one can stop the inevitable... so no need to wine. Just go with the flow!


Aiming High and going far..

I think the point would be that they may continue shifting smaller midwestern markets to RJs rather than mainline. We aren't talking your DTW/MCI/CVG sort of thing but the smaller cities. I know that we get a mix of mainline and RJ here in OMA from both ORD and DFW. Probably anything smaller than OMA would be getting almost all RJs.
