Hey my fellow a.netters, I've got a question I know AA inherited their STL operation from the late TW, but do they consider it a hub??   Do they have any plans to add any new flights there?? They applied for STL-PVR, STL-HOU, and I think STL-PNS/VPS   . But basically what is going on at STL these days?? Where do they fly to from there besides: CID,MCI,MSY,JFK,EWR,LGA,BWI,DFW,HOU,FLL,MCO,TPA,RSW,LAX,AUS,ORD, MIA,ABQ,LAS,SFO,SEA,VPS,CLT/RDU,BOS,MSP,SGF,LIT??

Well there is not a whole lot going here in STL theses days. We no longer see any widewody service except when there is a late equipment change to DFW and that may happen maybe once every few months if we are lucky. There is no talk of adding a lot of flights back but you will see an add on there a pull back there but nothing major. If you talk to STLgph he will tell you he thinks AA will begin a pull back of flights eventually. There has also been talk of a LGW flight but I won't believe until I see it. Well that's about where STL stands right now.

The only widebodies you see here have purple or brown tails. Aside from that, there is, as STLUAL said, nothing going on here. This place has been quiet since November 2003 when AA cut a ton of flights. They recently announced that they will quit using the B concourse and have all ops take place in C. I have a feeling that this will result in a cut because I don't see how they'll have all those props sitting in between C and D.

They'll all be on the end of Concourse C starting October 29th. Meaning they'll "surround" the tip of "C" Concourse.

Having to agree, not much happening. I believe in thr future, way in the future we might see STL build back up with AA, like after they buy NW. Why would they want MSP or DTW as hubs, They will move NW ops to STL.
side note " I am kidding about AA buying NW ".

They don't fly to MCI anymore or PNS, but they offer service to BOS, BDL, DCA, IAD, PHL, EWR, RIC, ORF, BWI, CMH, DAY, CLT, RDU, JAX, MIA, MCO, RSW, TPA, FLL, CUN, MSY, BTR, HOU, BNA, MEM, CID, DSM, MSP.

There are some destinations probably missing. They operate about 221 daily flights and STLUAL747 summed it up very well. You probably won't see a lot happen, but there will be flights added and dropped, nothing major.

Until the region around St. Louis has the economic horsepower necessary to support a major airline hub, one will not return to STL.

I believe STL is a focus city for AA. That role will diminish as oil prices continue to rise.

Within a couple of years, look for AA to fly only to their hubs from STL. The Connection flights will probably be rerouted through ORD or eliminated.

STL is still considered a hub by AA. I know there are some naysayers on here that will say that AA will cut back in the future. While anything is possible, I believe if AA does not merge with anyone that they will keep AA as their smaller midwest hub. Its has been mentioned on here and in the St Louis media that when AA "right-sized" the STL hub it has been a money maker for them. The AA STL hub also serves many smaller midwest communities, for example, Kirksville MO, Burlington IA, Quincy IL, etc., through EAS service under the American Connection banner. You really wouldn't want to shift all of those flights to capacity strained ORD. With the ongoing delays at ORD and STL adding a new runway, flights could increase, but alas, the hub won't be anywhere near the size was it was in the TWA days and shortly after when AA inherited it. The hub there is similar in size to CO's in CLE ot NW's in MEM.

actually, AA has not been using the end of C for a while, and this is where the prop flights will run out of. It will probably be a much more bustling place now that all of AA's flights will be operated from the C concourse.

American isn't going anywhere. Its a very profitable domestic station for AA as a result of about 8 or 9 really strong routes. If they had intentions of leaving, or diminishing its role, it would have happened by now. American has shown us its tolerance for under performing focus cities/mini hubs ala SJC and RDU.

Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 7):

That has pretty much been American's MO in St.Louis. Add a little here, give a little there. The schedule has been adjusted/re-adjusted over the past two years. Several weak routes have been cut like PHX, PIT, CVG, LAF, and on the other hand several have been added LIT, OKC, TUL, HOU, JFK, RIC, and VPS. It all equates to a whole lot of nothing, really.

Boeing nut,

Why would they put the props at the end of concourse C? Wouldn't it just make more sense to move both the rj's and mainline flights down further?

Never say never, rumor was B6 or FL wanted to start a focus city, but sadly that diminished, especially FL rumors, so who knows. B6 may/will start flights with the E-190 to JFK probably and who knows what other cities? Focus city? maybe, but doubtful.

AA considers it a Hub, a profitable one too liike Mark said. It is 4th in the 5 hubs, DFW, ORD, MIA, STL and JFK. (am I right?). Oil prices have already affected AA and made them cut back nearly 16 flights, and not one of them was from STL. Why? becausde STL is now to profitable to change anything, it was "right sized" and every flight at STL counts now, for now.

I find this so hard to believe, what about Washingtond DC area, New York Cities? They are just way to prfitable and high business people routes out of STL for AA to just drop it. AA will NOT let these routes go. What AA has at STL is just perfect, any more, theyd lose money, any less, theyd loose money. I see some being tweaked as Mark said they added one RJ route, but never cities being dropped like that.

The fifth American hub is San Juan, Puerto Rico. Truth be told, however, that if you combined American's operations at LaGuardia and Kennedy, you might as well have a sixth hub, however, the problem is that connections between the two airports, while bookable, are nearly impossible.

I don't think they will touch STL anymore (reduction wise.) It makes too much sense to keep it at current levels especially in cases where ORD or DFW experiences bad weather. Very convienent to re-route passengers and divert A/C bound to their primary hubs.

There have been vast improvements in the past few years. Concourse C, which is where AA is housed, has seen several additions. I believe there has been a Chili's, Wolf Gang puck, Brooks Brothers, CNBC store, and a Jose Cuervo that is due to be put in in the coming months.

It's also cleaner than it used to be. New carpeting, cleaner bathrooms, and brighter lights help the terminal look presentable (minus the end of concourse C). It used to draw comparisons to DTW's old terminal, but after the past couple years or so I wouldn't say its a valid comparison.

Checklist-
New restaurants (check)
New carpet (check)
electronic gate monitors (.....waiting)

There isn't much to get excited about as far as spotting. A 757 here or there, and thats about it. Concourse C presents excellent spotting opportunities everywhere, as it extends along the paralell runways.

I would encourage any young bright minds out their with half a sense in IT or Webbing to fire off an email to AA and tell them you want the job of webmaster.
