AA4684 ORD 2:25P-JFK 5:40P ERD
AA4685 JFK 6:20P-ORD 8:11P ERD

Nice to see that one of these flights is designed for O&D traffic, specifically the first flight in each direction.

I would predict when/if the JFK operations begin to increase, these flights would move to mainline.

Additionally, at $216.90 roundtrip, the fares are pretty reasonable as well...

I'm sure there is lots between ORD and JFK, there are millions of people that live around both ORD and JFK.

Yeah but like I said the traffic is bigger to LGA since more of a domestic flight......it makes no sense to me.....most people that fly AA from ORD-JFK make NYC their final destination and are not going international so why go throguh JFK hassel and not LGA

Apparently, my suggestion in the other thread that fares would make O&D impractical a la OH was incorrect...

This seems like a good move on AA's part. I live on the South Shore, and JFK is the most convenient airport to me (and the million people that live within 15 miles from me). I want to go to Chicago next summer and now I actually have a flight from the most convenient airport.

I don't understand why people think that there is no demand for JFK-ORD. There is! Long Island is a HUGE area and LGA isn't the most convenient airport for most of us -- especially for those who live in Jamaica, Valley Stream, Lynbrook, Baldwin, Rockville Centre, Freeport, Merrick...the list goes on and on.

When B6 gets on this route they'll make a killing.

Finally. Although LGA is preferable, the ORD-JFK market does need some passenger service as it is already hard and expensive to get to JFK from many midwest destinations. Also there will probably be some people continuing on to other international flights. There are a number of airlines that serve JFK but not ORD. Even if AA does not interline, it will still make connecting to these easier even if you do have to buy two ticket. I hope UA counters and adds their own service as well!

ORD & JFK are slot-controlled international hub airports. Maybe that's one of the reasons there is little demand for ORD-JFK.

Chicago-NYC is a business route, not leisure. They (Business Travelers) want to go to Fairfield CT, Westchester, Manhattan and Northern NJ.

There's no originating business in Queens or Brooklyn, and most of the Long Island Business traffic is along the North Shore (LGA) or closer to Islip.

Tokyo is slot controlled and Tokyo gets more flights from JFK than does Chicago (both ORD and MDW).

Factually wrong. ORD is not slot-controlled at all, however, there is an agreement between the DOT and certain carriers (the LCC's, plus United and American) to not have more than a certain number of flights, and to have some of their flights run outside of the peak afternoon hours. However, Continental, Delta, Northwest, US Airways, and the international carriers are not a party to this agreement, and are able to add flights at will, although obviously limited by real estate.

JFK is slot-controlled during the peak evening hours, however, during much of the day, JFK is not slot-controlled at all (and you can spot Norm Duke practicing his bowling on 13R/31L during the off-peak hours if you wait long enough).

The only two US airports that are slot-restricted around the clock for capacity are New York-LaGuardia and Washington-National, and LaGuardia's (sadly) go away on January 1, 2007.

Norm Duke placed 2nd in Tokyo today (Sunday).   I bet he will fly through JFK when returning to the USA.

I am sorry - your right - ORD is not slot-controlled. I could have say both ORD and JFK are time-controlled airports?

That may be in the works. I spoke to a sales rep from our NYC office (who is Indian herself and is a member of our Indian and South Asian Employees Resource Group) and she told me AA is less enchanted with serving BOM through BRU as has been considered, and is looking at a JFK-DEL nonstop that might continue on to BOM. American is trying to find routes where the 777s can be used for the highest possible yields.

Trust me, that is not happening. JFK-DEL would only serve to hurt themselves on their own ORD-DEL more than anything. AA will launch service to Bombay in 2006 via somewhere in Europe.

Neither airport is slot controlled. There is some ATC flow control, but no official slot controls

I don't get why you people think there is no domestic demand at JFK. There are millions of people that live around JFK. Why the hell have to drive to LGA when you can use JFK.

I highly disagree, while there are a lot of business people using LGA (obviously) there are a lot of people that live closer to JFK then LGA and want to go to Chicago. These Eagle flights are timed for leisure and connections.

Queens has no Central Business District, there are no large Corporations based there unless you want to count B6 but they are not large nor generating business travel.

Business Travelers want to go where there are busineses, Manhattan, Northern New Jersey, Fairfield County CT and Westchester is where the Region's business districts are located.

There is no demand for business travel to Chicago from Jamaica Queens, Howard Beach, the Rockaways or the South Shore of Long Island. These areas are mostly bedroom communities, Long Island has almost no corporate presence and what there is tends to be closer to Islip or the North Shore (LGA).

The immigrant populations of Myrtle Avenue and the retired teachers and fire fighters in the Rockaways do not need travel to Chicago, they want to go to Florida and Vegas which makes up the bulk of Domestic travel from JFK save the Trans-cons unable to operate from LGA due to range restrictions.

If there was demand for JFK-Chicago flights people would be serving the route, B6 thought JFK-BUF, ROC, BTV, FLL, SJU etc were in demand and they were right. If AA, UAL or B6 thought there was demand for JFK-Chicago flights they would have been on it years ago.

Fact is immigrant communities around Queens generate more demand for travel to Guyanna, Hati and Jamaica from JFK than Business travel from JFK to Chicago.

thanks for the info....right now, the ORD-DEL flight works pefectly for a DEL-BOM codeshare connection with 9W.....I wouldn't be surprised if AA does that for JFK-DEL flight also....

however, to really get these routes going, they need probably 2 flights a day or have 9W make better connections because besides 9W's DEL-BOM connection, there aren't any connecting flights to other parts of India yet....and I don't think I would want to overnight it @ DEL airport.... no
