AA Eagle To Fly MIA-TLH

Effective 3/2/08 American Eagle will begin 2x daily RJ MIA-TLH

MIA-TLH 0715-0845
MIA -TLH 1610-1740

TLH-MIA 0910-1030
TLH-MIA 1805-1925

I was expecting service to TLH, but I am surprised MIA-PNS did not come first as there would be lower start up costs for AA at PNS.

DL is also on the route with 2x daily RJ. Although they have the route established, AA and the MIA hub will really give them a run for their money.

Right now the fares in the market are really high. I remember Eagle pulling off the route (about 1996?). Air South was flying it for $25.00 each way which they promoted on billboards along Lejeune Road.

One more Florida city connected to MIA on AE. I'm surprised they're not using the ATR, like on JAX. Is it out of range? Now if they can just add MIA-DAB  gnasher . I'd like it on an ERJ, please. Add that to JFK-DAB and ORD-DAB. Wishful thinking, eh?  Smile

Awesome news, it's about time.

DL and AA should be able to co-exist quite well, especially, as you said, given Delta's establishment in the TLH market, not just from MIA, but MCO, TPA, and FLL. Also, small correction, but Delta Connection has three daily flights (except Saturdays), and is adding a fourth daily flights this winter.

A daily MIA-PNS flight, with a schedule very similar to the new MIA-SAV flights, should be launching in 2008, as well as a daily MIA-VPS flight. They are also looking at 2x MIA-APF and 1x MIA-MTH.

It is easily within the range, but this is strictly a business market with Delta Connection offering competing jet service. ATRs will not work here.

They should co-exist fine. Delta has a lot of TLH originating passengers who also use their services to other cities in the state.

What I'd like to see is TLH-DCA on DL* or US*, or TLH-IAD on UA*. TLH and PNS are both in need of direct flights to Washington.

Correct. A lot of Tallahassee-based flyers are loyal to Delta and won't switch. Where you will see switching is with Miami-based flyers. This market is fine for two airlines, just like CO and DL compete just fine on MCO/TPA-TLH.

That's awesome news - a route that, as others have said, was a long time coming. Now I'm holding my fingers crossed for 2x daily TLH-DFW. I can dream, can't I?!  Smile

Keep connecting the dots I wonder if AA will reconsider the 2 gate proposal for American Eagle in the north terminal with around 30 rj flights with more to come I just thought that 8-10 gates would be appropiate.

The "gates" will work similar to the D35 gate, just without buses. They will still be able to park a good amount of RJs and ATRs at one time. So at any given time, more than a dozen planes can be parked and waiting.

Eagle used to fly a SF3 3 times a day VPS-TLH-MIA back in 1991 when they opened VPS.

Can you elaborate a bit on this? Are there plans for the AA RJs at MIA to be boarded from gates other than the current D35 gate? Will the pax have to walk to the plane? I suppose a jetway is too much to hope for!

Pax will walk to the plane, just like Delta Connection ATRs board (or used to board?) at ATL.

Are they replacing Eagles D35 with something new? Its a horribly cramped space. Hopefully there are plans for a new area for Eagle to board out of.

There will be two gates added at the end of the current D councourse. Each will operate just like D35, with multiple flights at each, except that instead of boarding a bus, passengers will be able to walk right onto the plane.

Indeed. The design of the building, however, will allow AA to add-on regional jet gates if they decide to.

DAB and MLB were looked at about two years ago. The problem is that the ATRs are too big. If they had 19-30 seaters, then it would be an almost sure thing. That is also why they are iffy about returning to APF and MTH, but both are looking like good possibilities. Also, in addition to using ATRs to PNS and VPS, they are strongly considering daily ATR service to GPT and MOB.

Totally irrelevant to the topic, but another schedule change coming is that the MIA-XNA service is being entirely retimed to connect to/from South America redeyes, which I found interesting.

Possibly. The change in times was made at the request of Wal*Mart, obviously.

I'm not totally surprised as TLH has far stronger demand for service to South Florida than PNS. The official press release should come sometime this week. It hasn't been loaded on AA.com, but it's available through over GDS (e.g. Expedia has it).

TLH has much stronger demand for intra-state service, than they do western service. I'm not saying TLH-DFW will never happen, but doing MIA first makes sense. TLH-MIA should produce much better yields than TLH-DFW ever will.

Definitely, though I think there is a very strong chance DFW-TLH and third MIA-TLH will arrive by the end of 2008 as long as the initial service does well. And who knows, maybe they'll throw in an ORD flight like VPS/ORD/MOB/GPT all got.

I'm just shocked that DL or US haven't started this route. This is the fourth most populous state in the union! And it isn't like they need a DOT slot exception. They can fly the route with their current slots.

Who knows, maybe American Eagle will surprise us...
