Wow, AA will begin loading its Fall schedule this weekend, and from what I've heard, that cuts are going to be pretty substantial.

Among the more notable markets apparently slated to get cut are:

. Austin-Orange County
. Austin-Raleigh/Durham
. Austin-Seattle/Tacoma (has operated seasonally for the last two years, but it may now be gone for good)

. Chicago-Rome (may return seasonally for summer 2009, but as of now, looks like a permanent discontinuation)

. Dallas/Fort Worth-Oakland (AA exits Oakland market completely - after many decades in the market *sad*)

. Los Angeles-Fort Lauderdale
. Los Angeles-San Antonio

. New York/LaGuardia-Raleigh/Durham (Eagle will remain in market)

. St. Louis-Raleigh/Durham (Connection will remain in market)
. St. Louis-San Antonio (Connection will remain in market)

Whoooaa...I've flown this route many times...while not my favourite (as I fly out of SJC 90% of the time)... it still did the trick.

Such a shame, I'm surprised this is being axed even with a B763.

Despite the low yield (then again, what transcon route isn't suffering from this affliction), kind of surprising. Should give a slight boost to the LAX-MIA yields.

Los Angeles-San Antonio

I found it surprising that this one lasted as long as it did. Would be better suited to AE, if only AE had more 70 seaters - or larger  wink 

At some point I'm expecting LAX-BNA to get axed, despite the music industry patronage.

Probably result of UA upping service(3x daily) and resigning the Toyota contract for corporate travel LAX-SAT

I suspect however we are only at the tip of the iceberg for significant industry route cuts which will occur after the summer peak, where such non core and particularly non-hub flying will likely fall out of favor.

Interesting stuff. On another thread, people are pointing to B6 turning AUS into a focus city; AA seems to be backing out of same. I also notice that WN is rather involved in a number of these "ex-AA" markets, eg., LAX-SAT, LAX(SNA)-AUS, OAK (in general), and WN could always slip into a few of the other abandoned AA routes (if they see any potential there, of course), e.g., RDU-STL, SEA-AUS, SNA-AUS...

I wonder if SAN-BOS (apparently on the death-watch list for years now) will survive the cuts?

And what about the "controvertial" PDX-ORD route; will that be axed again (at least for the winter?)

What surprised me was axing the ORD -- FCO route. I've been on that flight, and always full. Even more surprising is that Transatlantic tends to be a money maker. Was the revue that low on this route?

Any word where the metal will go? Or will this be designed to help retire out some of the MD-80s?

As normal MIA is going to drop quite a few frequencies (the equivalent of aprox 16 daily flights) on 9/3. The bulk of them will return on 11/20 or 12/18 except for the frequencies listed below that have not been scheduled to return...

MIA -- GCM from 3 to 2 daily

MIA -- GUA from 3 to 2 daily (MIA-GUA #3 has not even started yet, it begins on 7/2)

MIA -- LGA from 11 to 9 daily (Wonder what the LGA slots will go to? More LGA-RDU RJs?)

MIA -- PUJ from 2 to 1 daily

MIA -- STI from 2 daily to six weekly

MIA -- VVI from 5 weekly to 3 weekly

MIA -- YUL from 3 daily to 2 daily

**Also new daily service to GND and ANU begins on 9/3.

Surprising news about ORD-FCO. Never thought it was a huge moneymaker, but I thought it would be kept.

And MIA-YUL going down to 2 flights is surprising, too. My peeps fly down to Ft. Lauderdale/Miami in droves during the winter season. Hollywood is an outpost of Quebec in the winter! About the only place in America I can find a Quebec French Montreal newspaper at the newstand.

This is interesting. I wonder if it is the available equipment?  scratchchin  Are the routes profitable on the E190 but not a MD-80 or E145? High oil prices are changing the rules.

But I would think most of the Quebecuois on that route would rather fly into FLL, or even PBI. Some might live in Miami Beach or, up near Hallandale, but they can fly out of FLL just the same. I don't know if AA does that run but Air Canada sure does, may be others.

I'm not sure that I would think it too likely either since WN hasn't done it yet, or even before AA did. I was mostly thinking that a lot of these failed AA routes are between WN stations so it would not be a big deal for WN to start any themselves that looked good. If AA pulled the routes because the traffic wasn't there, then it PROBABLY wouldn't be there for WN either, but of course WN doesn't need as much traffic to have a successful route...

I'm pretty sure that WN used to fly AUS-RDU nonstop (and/or SAT-RDU?) because there was a SAN tag-on to the flights providing thru (direct) SAN-RDU service for a while. Maybe WN would rethink the route now, but again, if the traffic wasn't there for AA...

Doubtful as it is a license to print money for AA in this market. It's the same situation as the RDU-London flight. I doubt you understand how well that flight actually does.

These routes are a tiny fraction of AA's total route network. Surely there's enough turnover in staffing (retirements/resignations/terminations on one hand and new hires on the other hand) that such reductions can be managed without layoffs.

AS may be interested in a SEA-AUS 1x daily 73G, but I'm not too confident. Fuel prices being what they are, and DFW already having AS service, it might not work. AS would have considerable feed from connections, but it is the same feed that AA had. Not promising, IMO.

Really too bad about ORD-FCO, seeing as AZ remains in a precarious financial situation. There are still plenty of ways to connect to FCO from the West Coast, however.

I wonder if this has something to do with AZ's decision to focus on FCO at the expense of MXP. It'll be interesting to see what, if anything, the other US players do (might US cut FCO, for instance?).

I wouldn't make too much of either of these cuts; both were mixed mainline/Connection routes, and AA has been monkeying with the Connection schedules a bunch, mainly to transfer some ERJ capacity to MIA (a smart move, FWIW).
