I really hope this is true. I guess they will be using the D concourse in St. Louis. I hope the airport authority will spruce up the concourse for them. Also, where did you get your information (rumor or from an insider)?

You can expect both the 320 and 190 at STL!

Hmmm...I actually think that there's some validility to this rumor. CMH and STL make great sense as destinations - both are underserved from NYC. That's not to say that there isn't competition, but there's no LCC competition and service from JFK must be very limited.

On the same note, Neeleman publicly stated that the airline is looking for a Midwest focus-city. I think STL fits the picture pretty well. It would be great for connecting people to smaller cities in the Midwest or on the West Coast that can't support non-stop service to BOS or JFK.

Why not? 2.5 million+ in the metro area, a virtually empty concourse, central location (190's to either coast, nonstop, year round, no problem) and the hub that AA couldn't care less about. If anyone has a shot at running AA out of STL, it's B6.



Next Up: STL-LGA-RIC-ATL-STL

Nobody is really doubting the cities. The thing that I'm having a hard time believing is that B6 would have already made a decision to make STL a hub or focus city without having had experience in the market to judge the demands for service from STL and how their product will be received. Don't doubt at all that B6 may be considering STL for a hub/focus city, but the smart money is that if they do decide to do that they do it slowly and only after strong performance on core routes.

Based on my internal information, we are not starting up any MX cities through the rest of this year. That is always subject to change, but if we are not opening a city that has MX, then it will not be a hub or focus city for a little while.

I would assume that STL would start off with flights to JFK and BOS. They will probably make it known that they will make STL a focus city in the future, sort of like how BOS developed.

First of all, BOS became the second largest city in just 2 yrs, so don't discount STL as an already planned hub.
SECOND - STL makes plenty of sense; Until the A320 is fitted with the winglets, techstops will become much easier. Also, geographically, you can sercve the entire lower 48 States with either the 320, or 190.
STL makes perfect sense.

It will be interesting to see how agressive B6 will be in launching STL.

152 AAFlyer2006 : You are right, $399 roundtrip from New York City is slightly high. Chances are jetBlue prices it for an introductory fare of $99 each way and a regula

182 CentPIT : Generally the City of Pittsburgh is considered part of the Northeast, some people however will argue the city as part of the Midwest.
183 B6DC10 : CentPIT - Exactly how far apart are PIT and CLE? I have never been to either city, but I hear that they are relatively close together...
184 MAH4546 : It also depends on routes. American Airlines does not charge more than $599 for a walk-up coach fare on any domestic flight from MIA, FLL, and PBI.
