2 Unrelated questions on AA at STL from a new guy in town...

1) What was their schedule immediately prior to the TW merger? I know they had 3 gates over on A, which seems like a lot. I assume they flew to ORD and DFW, but anywhere else? And with what equipment?

2) What percentage of AA's traffic at STL is connecting?

Thanks for your help...

LAX and LGA as well. They flew a mix of MD80s and F100s mostly with an occasional 757 thrown in for kicks from what I remember.

Was AA the leading carrier on STL-ORD before the merger? They definitely are now.

Originally the STL hub was reduced to have a 70% originating vs. 30% connecting mix. These numbers have likely changed over the years with more connecting traffic-especially during the summer. Lambert's connecting traffic was up 12% in July and O&D was up 5-6% vs. prevous year. Now this is not all AA, WN has increased connecting traffic with their DAL flights and have also increased other frequencies, DL, NW and UA have done some upgrades both in frequency and equipment and FL has added service.

I owuld bet today that AA in STL is well over 50% local.

I think TWA was #1 on STL-ORD before the merger

Correct. They had hourly flights. First flight out of STL and last flight back at night.

Does anyone remember the cattle chute commerical TWA had mocking WN on their hourly STL-ORD/MDW service? One of my favorite commercials ever.

How did OZ rank on STL-ORD, before they were bought by TWA?
