During a flight today from DFW - MFE I noticed a short mention in the back of new American Eagle service to Miami, one of the cities being SDF, my home airport.

Of course I was excited but then disappointed as it's difficult to connect on the one flight a day to Carribean destinations. The flight leaves SDF at 14:43 and arrives in MIA at 17:14.

Most of the flights to the islands leave before that so you'd have to stay over the night to really connect.

I'm glad the flight is there, just hope it gets supplemented by an early morning flight in the future and if the loads hold up.

American Eagle Launches New Jet Service From DFW to Nine Cities

Fort Worth, Texas – American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, is further extending the American Airlines network with new nonstop jet service from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to nine additional cities today.

The carrier now offers three daily round-trip flights between DFW and Savannah, Ga.; two daily round-trip flights between DFW and both Madison, Wis., and Mobile, Ala.; and once-daily round-trip flights between DFW and Evansville, Ind.; Green Bay, Wis.; Moline, Ill.; Rochester, Minn.; and Toledo, Ohio. American Eagle also begins seasonal service between DFW and Traverse City, Mich., with one daily flight today through Oct. 29, and a second flight between July 2 and Aug. 22. All flights will be operated with 44- or 50-seat Embraer jets.

American Eagle also increased its jet service today between DFW and Buffalo, N.Y., from one to two daily flights, and will add four daily round- trip flights between DFW and Fort Walton Beach, Fla., on July 2.

The added service from DFW provides customers with convenient schedules at competitive prices to even more cities. Combined, American Eagle and American Airlines now serve 154 cities from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

AA also recently announced more DFW-MLI and new service between DFW and GPT.



Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD. Return: US SJD-PHX, WN PHX-MDW-DSM

Yeah, and to be honest, I didn't check the entire list. I just looked at POS, which is where I need to travel later this year.

Cheers,
John

Since Miami is a rolling hub and doesn't have banks, with the smaller markets, it is simply luck of the draw when it comes to where the markets connect. AA is very limited on RJs, so to schedule everything properly, some of the Eagle destinations get morning arrivals/evening departures and some have early evening arrivals/morning departures. And then a few are lucky enough to have both (like Richmond, VA).

A second flight may be added this winter pending aircraft availbility. GSO and ORF will also likely get 2nd flights, again, pending aircraft. The MIA-SDF flight average excellent loads in the mid-90s. MQ also frequently has to ask for volunteers because the flight often goes out overweight (the plane holds 44 people, but often can only go out with 40 because of people coming to Miami pack heavy luggage). Not a surprise, because that is what the MQ's average load factor into/out of MIA is about 90%.
