Does AA plan on offering DFW-GUC? If AA doesn't plan on it, DFW may have stepped in and offered Continental incentives, other than that-- why?
Let's face it, GUC is a tiny, tourist related market nowhere close to DEN(former CO hub) and Continental's hub is 250 miles south of DFW at IAH. Not to mention they are entering AA's turf. I mean this isn't CO flying DFW-LAX or DFW-LGA, where marginal profits can be made.
Do the ERJ's have cargo holds big enough to carry skis?
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

Let's just say that the landing minimums and weight restrictions weren't very helpful. And have you ever seen an ERJ carry ski's and skiing equipment? A lot of flights going back to DFW had huge weight restrictions because of the length of the GUC runway and if we needed hold fuel and alternate fuel, forget it. It did make for some very interesting dispatching and flying.
