American Eagle will exit BOS-EWR and ORD-IAD this spring. Several other routes will also be getting a haircut and there are quite a few temporary suspensions from DFW and LAX...


ORD-IAD -3RT Exit Market (-1 eff 3/2, -2 eff 6/1)
ORD-LIT -1RT for 5 daily (eff 4/10)

LGA-CMH -1RT for 5 daily (eff 4/1)

BOS-EWR -5RT Exit Market (eff 4/1)
BOS-CMH -1RT for 1 daily (eff 5/1)


Temporary Suspensions:
DFW-DSM -1RT for 5 daily (eff 4/10-4/30)
DFW-JAN -1RT for 8 daily (eff 4/10-4/30)
DFW-CRP -1RT for 6 daily (eff 4/10-4/30)
DFW-CVG -1RT for 5 daily (eff 4/1-4/30)
DFW-HOU -1RT for 8 daily (eff 4/10-4/30)

LAX-SAN -3RT for 14 daily (eff 4/1-UFN)
LAX-SBA -2RT for 6 daily (eff 4/1-6/13)
LAX-MRY -1RT for 3 daily (eff 4/1-6/13)

Im wondering what will become of the A/C on the eliminated flights from BOS and ORD as well as the open LGA slot.

On the East Coast, I wouldn't doubt that AA is making this move to redeploy assets in its strategy to grow JFK and augment its position at LGA. EWR is a lost cause with the dominance of Continental, and there is more money to be made at JFK and LGA with AA's more established positions.

Sad to see this, but ORD-IAD and BOS-EWR seem to be covered well enough (if not too much) by other airlines. Does AA mainline fly ORD-IAD, or is it DCA/BWI only for service to ORD? Hopefully this means that AA/AE will be adding new destinations and/or added frequency at JFK. Either way, I hope there are some additions at JFK so their gorgeous new terminal can be put to good use (and I can use it, too!  Wink).

Dropping BOS-CMH to one daily flight was ill thought out, and this route is all but dead.

Newark was the next logical cut from Boston, after Philadelphia, Montreal and Baltimore lost American Eagle service over the past two years.

While i'm not surprised to see BOS-EWR cut, i am surprised AA hasn't added BOS service lately. They just renovated the gate areas. Seems like a waste to me.

It's been awhile since any domestic legacy carrier added service at Logan. I think Northwest, with their additional Amsterdam flight to begin this summer, is the last one I can recall. BOS has been in hibernation for a fair bit, if not outright reductions in terms of flights or capacity.

AA mainline only flies ORD-DCA while Eagle flies ORD-BWI. Doesn't look like there will be any upgrades on these routes post drop of ORD-IAD.

Does anyone else serve the market? Surely business passengers will now not use AA on the route and the yields will fall?

ORD-IAD -3RT Exit Market (-1 eff 3/2, -2 eff 6/1)

Bet UA will be happy

Could this be the start of AA reducing their EWR ops with routes like RDU being under threat? Or is this just one individual route under performing?

as well as the open LGA slot.

AA is freeing up six LGA slots. One from PIT, two from CMH, one from ATL, and two from RDU. These become four daily flights to Cincinnati and two daily flights to Louisville.

AFAIK, EWR-RDU is a reasonably strong performer for AA/AE. It is a moneymaker for CO as well.

Any speculation as to the temporary suspension of these Eagle flights? Spring is not necessarily off peak for MRY and SBA. I can understand a permanent reduction in LAX-SAN as a flight every half hour is frequent enough.

Possibly due to the 25 Saabs going back to the leasors, then waiting for the replacement 30-35 Saabs that will come online by 2008. http://airlinepilotcentral.com/airli...r-national-lcc/american_eagle.html

DL and B6 both fly CMH-BOS which is probably why AA is exiting. There are too many carriers on this route.

True, but it's really not much different than the fact UA doesn't fly JFK-ORD n/s (two AA hubs). It's tough to compete against two airline hubs at the same time!

JFK isn't an AA hub and AA didn't even fly the route until about a year ago.

DL has slowly been adding struff at BOS. B6 and FL have been leading the charge lately, which is why I think we'll continue to see more reductions on the non 'trunk' legacy routes i.e. CMH, RDU, etc.

So the LGA slots are all spoken for. What about the equipment?

Do these cuts cover adds already made or do you think we will see some more new service annoucements.

I am really hoping to see some new gateways to HPN. RDU or maybe MIA.

I understand that RDU-HPN is a good high yield route.. and there are at least 4-8 NetJet/Private jets flights into RDU most weekdays.. I don't understand why that one hasn't been started..

From what I can remember, it did well for JI when they offered it.. I guess it's something I will have to suggest to XE.. LOL.. that and PVD..

Well, Iberia added service as did Finnair and FlyGlobespan...but no US legacy folks.. i wish they would.

Okay, AA may not consider it a hub, but to me, when you connect traffic from more than a few domestic markets to other domestic markets and multiple continents through one airport, I'd at the very least call it a gateway.

Anyway, the point being in the JFK-ORD market AA has feed at both ends (meaning both conxn traffic and FF loyalty). The same is true in the IAD-ORD market for UA. UA has already massively reduced operations in the NYC area, in effect conceding market share to AA, CO, B6 etc. to focus on other things. Over the years AA has also scaled back at IAD. They can stimulate demand with their (non-hub!) significant operation at DCA and hub at ORD.

Anyway, you are very knowledgeable and I'm sure you know all this anyway. I apologize for calling JFK an AA hub (even though they have their own terminal there)...  Smile

The added plasma screen gate info on the mainline gates, they connected the Eagle to the mainline gates(via a very nice hallway, great for spotting), and closed the old Eagle security checkpoint. They also plan to redo the concession areas.

Yes. And it is dissapointing that AA is most likely going to let EWR get the shaft to LGA and JFK out of this deal. I hope RDU isn't the next to go.
