AA isn't going to sit pretty and let CO take all the traffic
How many passengers are you truly competing for? It seems to be more for business than anything. AA probably has some guarantee from a corporation, if not one daily flight on an ER4 to CUU isn't going to put much of a dent in CO's Mexican market share. I can't imagine airlines like CO or AA offering 37/40 seats a day to some Mexican destination to try and get the Mexican tourists.
It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

Where to the American Eagle international arrivals into DFW deplane? I didn't think there was Customs in A2 or the low end of B, and I've never seen American Eagle planes on the high side of Terminal A where AA customs is ... ???

AAtakeMeAway, I asked this question about a year ago and got a good answer, but I just searched for it and couldn't find it.
I can't remember exactly what the answer is, but I think the Eagle flights from Mexico deplane on the ramp at Terminal A and customs is cleared in A. Either that, or they could be forced to walk up to the customs hall in B.
I don't know if they'll use the new International Terminal D when it opens this spring.

Obviously tongue-in-cheek. Probably should have put a smiley or something in there as sarcasm is undetectable over the Internet.
There, happy now?
As far as Continental North, their revamped business plan, improved FC service, and new FF perks are quite reminiscent of the company's Houston-based counterpart. Again, just pointing that out, and is there anything wrong with some harmless ribbing?
That said, it is surprising AA hasnt entered more of the markets CO "pioneered" in Mexico.

All Eagle intl arrivals into DFW park at their normal assigned gates in either terminal "B" or the Eagle sattelite terminal. Passengers are bussed to a special door located between gates A24 and A25, which has an escalator that leads up to the customs hallway. As for the new "D"terminal, AE may end up using a jetbridge, but I heard they may not go low enough to meet an ERJ, so they may end up doing the buss thing again with the ERJs parked on a remote hardstand next to the "D" terminal.

It is funny, last month I had an interview in AA Revenue Management for a strategy analyst position. Discussing AA's strategy towards the Mexican market with one of the managers, he told me that AA will not expand in Mexico "a la CO". They said their numbers didn't justify opening more DFW-Mexico routes, instead, they will let MX do that for them and will route passengers through MEX and GDL.
Before my interview, I thought AA's revenue management and pricing teams were "top of the line", but after the interview I realized they just react to almost everything the competition does and they protect their territory a lot... Disappointing!!!
