AA will begin 2x daily non-stop LAX-YYZ service on November 1 using 737-800's. This is just the latest AA international expansion move at LAX. They already serve the international destinations of LHR, CDG, and GDL from LAX.

AA has also filed a petition with the government to stop UA from gaining a non-stop LAX-Los Cabos, Mexico flight. AA argues that UA already has a non-stop on this route through its codeshare with Mexicana. AA is petitioning that it be granted this route.

So, AA when will you call LAX a hub? With 75 daily Eagle flights and 127 daily AA flights, LAX certainly has the traffic (both connecting and O/D) to be considered a "hub". That is not even counting the 15 daily codeshares on international airlines out of LAX.

Come on AA, bite the bullet.

That's 1x daily LAX-YYZ...not 2x

Not in the forseeable future.

Not even close to true AA hub statistics.

>on international airlines out of LAX.

Not even a consideration.

Highly unlikely. American's hubs are massive. DFW has 750 combined flights a day (Eagle + AMR), O'Hare is huge, and Miami is a big hub, although the number is under 300. American is growing its LAX operations to do battle with UA and Southwest in the West, but I don't think they will officially call it a hub. As for United, many flights from SFO were transferred to LAX by UA in order for UA to call LAX a hub.
