US Airways To Aruba, Doing Well?

I regularly check flights on the website of Aruba's international airport and to my surprise saw the following flights of US Airways to Aruba on Saturdays:

US477 Philadelphia ARR: 12:57
US673 Charlotte ARR: 13:15
US285 Boston ARR: 13:58
US653 Philadelphia ARR: 14:43
US979 Charlotte ARR: 15:19
US261 New York ARR: 15:34

This really amazed me, is there any other Caribbean island that is being served by US Airways so often on a single day (besides SJU of course)?

Is US Airways doing so well on the AUA flights?

Regards,

A388

Yeah, it's amazing. I remember when AA used to dominate the Aruban market but they are losing marketshare with almost all major U.S. carrier flying to AUA nowadays. When looking at the number of flights each day I think US is coming very close to AA now.

Is that really true? The post above shows a Saturday schedule when US has lots of flights into AUA, but on other days of the week, there are only two US flights out of AUA, one to the PHL hub and the other to the CLT hub.

In any case, the days of AA more or less having the caribbean to itself are over.

Jamaica and the Bahamas are served quite well by US as well. A lot of their Carribean flights actually connect through FLL.

Huh?...US only has 1 FLL-KIN, 1 FLL-MBQ, 2 FLL-SDQ, 1 FLL-CUN. A those are mainly there for O&D paxs, not connections considering the other airports US serves from FLL are PHL, CLT, DCA, LGA, BOS

compare that to Spirit at FLL who flies FLL-SDQ, SJU, STT, KIN, CUN, PUJ, NAS, SAL, GCM, PLS

That's true, that's why I said that US is coming closer to AA frequency-wise speaking. AA still dominates that market but it has become less with all these U.S. carriers flying there now. After AA, US is the largest operator to AUA and they haven't been flying to AUA so long, right? Not more than 10 years, right?

DCA? MBJ doesn't have preclearance, do they?

Its more than 10 years - I flew with AA to Aruba in 1980 (my first visit to Aruba). The flight was operated with a DC-10-10 with a JFK-AUA-Curacao-JFK triangle routing.....thats 26 years ago and think AA has been serving the route ever since it took over Transcaribbean in the early 1970s. Back in 1980, that was the only AA route to Aruba.....EA was flying the MIA-AUA route and AA's SJU hub had not yet developed.

IMO, for what it's worth, now that JFK is a station in the US network, they should move the Carib flights there from LGA and make them daily.

Then they would be a serious contendor in the NY area.

Hi Dutchjet, I was referring to US. I know AA has been flying to AUA for a long time as I lived in CUR for the most part of my life Big grin

US has been flying to AUA since 2000. They started with service from PHL and then added CLT in 2001. BOS and LGA were added in 2002, I believe.


It's a Great Day for Hockey!
