Hey all,

My aunt was supposed to fly up to Toronto today travelling KIN-MIA-YYZ for my brother's wedding this weekend and while she would have been able to get to MIA. AA told her in KIN that the flight was cancelled but didn't state why so she is coming on tomorrow's flight.

She believes that this is because there wasn't enough of a load on this flight to run it but do any of you know what the reason was.

The info was:

AA 1562 leaving MIA at 13:40 and arriving at YYZ at 16:50

Does it matter? Do you need a "down to the valve" explanation?

Are you going to determine as to whether AA was in their right to cancel the flight and second guess their decision? I trust that the people in DFW SOC were looking at all aspects before whipping out the "whack-o-matic".

Low flight loads are, in an of themselves, not a reason that an airline will cancel a flight. However, if I need a plane within a certain time frame due to another plane out of service, and when comparing flights, I see a flight with a low booking level, and I need the plane, I will cancel that flight. Airlines DONT cancel flights just because a certain flight is lightly booked.

"Oh, there are only 40 people on this flight; screw em, canceled. I dont particularly need the plane or crew, I just dont wanna run it."

That just doesnt happen.

No need to get worked up!

I'm not trying to give AA a bad rap or anything I just wanted know if anyone knew the reason for the cancellation. If it was because of low load factors thats fine I just wanted to know the reason.

Nope. I took the info straight from SABRE, which gives the cancellation reason (out of service) but not the reason behind the mechanical problem. It is possible to look up the reason once I have the nose number, but will have to do that later.

In my experience flights aren't canceled due to load factor. However, if there is a flight that is full, and that a/c goes out of service, it is not uncommon to take an a/c from another flight that is lightly booked to cover the full flight. It's all about how to inconvenience the least number of pax, as well as the options available to protect pax on other flights to get them to their final destination.
