American Airlines mainline is returning to Greensboro after being absent since 2002. They will operate one daily M80 Dallas-Greensboro service starting 23 August 2005:

AA 2576 DFW 1244-1613 GSO
AA 2591 GSO 1655-1855 DFW

Also, I don't know if it ever started as planned two weeks ago, but weekend Raleigh-Pensacola service is gone.

what was the purpose of RDU-PNS?


okay, I'm waiting for the rich to spread the wealth around to me. Please mail your checks to my house.

Little bit of a surprise...I was talking to an AAgent at GSO a week or so ago, and the only speculation they were having was a possible MIA flight...nothing about a mainline flight. Still, very exciting news, and not unexpected...Eagle has really expanded since I moved down there, starting with 3 daily ERJ-140s, up to 3 daily CRJ-700s, and then up to 6 daily ERJ-140s. I'll be quite happy to see this plane in GSO. This will leave only CO as the only legacy not having mainline full time at GSO (DL has ATL and CVG comes back in fall, NW has DTW, US has CLT and PHL occasionally, UA has ORD; CO only does mainline during Furniture Market time).

That will be a daily ERJ-140 and it is set to start in November.

Yes, RDU-PNS-RDU started. To bad it didn't last longer. I guess AA just wanted to test the waters. Most people would rather drive to RDU then pay $240+ RT to fly.  Smile

RDU-PNS-RDU.. still never got that one. Oh well. They come, they go.. Expectations for AA/AE at RDU are running pretty low.

Hopefully, RDUAA will take back some more gates since they have decreased flights by ~20%. Offer those gates to someone new.. whomever would want to come..



Aiming High and going far..

I was pretty certain that the RDU-PNS service was cut prior to it ever starting. It was taken out of the timetable in early/mid April. Still hoping for a 2nd PVD-DFW and the elusive PVD-MIA this winter...

RDU -PNS was interesting, but if AA ever wants to try to compete with Delta/Airtran in that market, flying through RDU is going to be inportant. It can't be a weekend flight either. It would need to be daily. With delta having given up the Dallas Market, it leaves AA with a chance to gain market share in those gulf coast states. However not offering good east coast connections is not going to help.

Interestingly, I saw a Spirit jet there today near the Observation deck. Probably just a charter...but one can hope.

The flight had one purpose: make use of an ERJ-135 that would otherwise sit on the tarmac and do nothing on a weekend because of reduced schedules on business routes. It clearly wasn't making enough money to make it worth the fuel.

Yeah I get that part, but it just doesn't make sence to offer a Pensacola RDU flight for 2 days on the weekend. There is nothing driving that market. Perhaps make it daily and use it as a New York/London connector.

That was the best they could come up with, PNS? If I had a plane sitting around I would send it to a destination that could make money. NAS, MIA, FLL, PBI. Plenty of destinations would have been better than PNS.
What are they doing with it now?

Uhm, CO has a daily 737 to Newark, or at least 5 days a week as I see it every day. US has PHL and CLT fulltime with LGA a few times a week.

I don't remember seeing a US mainline flight up to PHL for some time now...schedule currently shows all CRJs and ERJs as well (this is through September). CLT does stay at mainline all the time...currently, I believe it's all 733s (with Express flights mixed in), but I have seen 734s on this route.

As for CO, all I see on mainline on them right now is a once a week (either Saturday or Sunday evening) 735 departure up to EWR...everything else is ERJs (including IAH).

All CO service at GSO is ERJ except a Sunday night departure to EWR on a 735. All US PHL service is RJ as is LGA.

I flew a mainline US Air flight to PHL three weeks ago.
I was at the airport two days last week and both days CO has 735s going to Newark for the evening flight around 6pm.

Iwas told that both of these are normal.

Interesting, so all flying will be done from the STL end on Connection ERJ's??

I am not positive, but I think that the route will be discontinued completely. We will have to way and see when the schedule is loaded this weekend unless somebody else knows for sure.
