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?

Anchorage is a seasonal city, which is kinda odd that they would have an Admirals club there for only being seasonal.

American's webage does not list an Admiral's Club in Anchorage. Most likely you're thinking of Alaska Airlines' Board Room which I believe members have reciprocal benefits.

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.

Sorry misread the route map, the two stars they use on the route map looked the same with a quick glance.

I've actually checked their summer schedule and they don't seem to have any flights from O'Hare or Dallas-Ft. Worth to Anchorage.

As far as other carriers, besides Alaska Airlines, Northwest, United, Delta, Continental, Frontier and Frontier all fly to Alaska from the lower 48.

Almost all of the major ones.

American flies during the summer to Chicago and Dallas.

Alaska Airlines provides intra-state service, as well as service south to Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Vancouver, Denver, and Chicago (some seasonal).

United provides service to Denver and Seattle year-round, and during the summer to San Francisco, Chicago, and Los Angeles.

America West flies to Phoenix year-round.

Continental flies to Seattle year-round, and during the summer to Houston (they usually operate a summer service to Newark, but that didn't operate this year).

Frontier flies seasonally to Denver.

Delta flies year-round to Salt Lake City and during the summer to Atlanta.

Northwest flies year-round to Minneapolis and during the summer to Detroit.

While you are correct that UA serves ANC from DEN/SEA year-round and operates ANC-SFO/ORD seasonally, UA does not operate any non-stop LAX-ANC service at any time of the year.

Cheers!

It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

American also operated QQ's SEA-ANC flights with an MD-80 until they closed the SEA base.

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.

1) QQ never flew to ANC out of SEA.
2) AA never flew any SEA-ANC flights from what I know.
3) The SEA base is closed, which is right.

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. . . Big grin

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).

AirframeAS...

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.
