Well the TWA website has officially announced LAX as the Y2K focus city... however one thing that caught me off guard was that American Eagle will be flying the regional feed into LAX and not Chataqua as many of us originally believed.

So here are some questions... did the Chataqua deal at LAX fall through or was it simply delayed b/c of the need to get a regional feed operator immediately in order to keep the DCA slots?

And if the chataqua deal does/did/will fall through who will operate the regional feed out of LAX... I wouldn't imagine it to be too ideal to have Am Eagle operating these flights as I imagine they'd be operated out of American's T4 and not out of T3, what about Mesa Airlines???

And what new service will we see in the next 12 months out of LAX. Service to FLL or MCO, another Hawaii destination, flights to the 2001 focus city?

Any input on this would be welcome.

Dear Desertjets,
I know what you are talking about and i am from Dallas, American Eagle I don't think will make it big with there regional Jet fleet unless if it is a flight from Dallas Ft. Worth International and have stops in Albequerqe and then to Phonex Sky Harbor then to LAX. I would ecxpect ASA or Comair(Both Delta Connections) to start doing a lot of Regional Jet Fleet action, cause both of them are getting new Bombardier CRJ's. A few days ago ASA annouced that it is boasting along with Delta a 100 new flights seperatly, and that 50% of the flights would be west coast 25% LAX, 08% to Phonex, 11% to Portland Oregon International and 13% to Salt Lake City.

Hopefully the TWA experts out there will find this sometime in the morning and shed some light on this, unless it comes as a suprise to them.

Chautauqua was being considered and arrangements were being worked it was determined the two sides were just too far apart on the deal. American Eagle was signed as a feeder when Chautauqua could not come to an agreement. Basically, Chautauqua needed a guarantee on about 1/3 of the seats being sold on each flight. TWA was unwilling to guarantee revenue and the deal with Chautauqua died.

Many of us believe LAX was not a true focus city but was done to save face. I am in that camp. It is believed with the early retirement of the 727s TWA would not have enough spare lift until Q1 2001 to start a focus city.

We discussed this extensively on the other thread which I will attempt to bring forward.

In LAX, American Eagle does not operate out of Terminal 4 but instead operates out of their own facility behind the Tom Bradley International Building. Just a FYI....
