Has American Airlines stopped serving Anchorage altogether? I don't see any flights (other than Alaska Airlines codeshares) on American to Alaska. Any word on whether they plan to return with their own metal?

American only flies to Anchorage during the summer, from both Dallas and O'Hare. They used to also fly from St. Louis to Anchorage. American Airlines had actually intended to run St. Louis-Anchorage as a year-round service, but that never came about.

My CFI just got back from a domestic flight from ORD-ANC to check out a former TW 767 captain. I guess they are just ending service to ANC now since Jim said he will only be flying ORD-HNL domestic flights.

Sorry Airframe, Qqflyboy is correct. QQ operated two or three daily SEA-ANC right up until the moment they became AA, and AA continued to operate the flights for a short time thereafter. If I'm not mistaken, this was actually the second time that AA operated to ANC on their own certificate. AirCal served ANC from SEA at the time of the AA takeover, and I believe AA also continued that service for a brief time (getting old tho - so that memory may be off. . .
The QQ flights did very well, frequently going out totally full, however the yield was horrendous. QQ sold most of the seats well below what AS was charging (hence why the were full).

I used to be a flight attendant for QQ and flew to ANC many times. We also flew from ANC-FAI and also had seasonal service from ANC-RNO. And yes, AA continued to fly QQ's SEA-ANC flights after the merger.
