I don't know. With MX and AA extensively codesharing and MX's imminent entry into oneworld, I think AM will not go back to DFW any time soon. If they do, however, I would not expect mainline service, but E190 service. I remember AM used to have fantastic business class fares to/from DFW (it was MD-80 service if I am not mistaken) and I thought it was very sad that they had to pull out, especially because AM is very, very superior to what AA offers.
I have a question for those of you in the know... Back in 2003 or so, there were like 6 daily DFW-MEX flights with AA, plus two dailies with AM. And one could get quite decent fares back then too. Now, it seems to me that AA has cut a lot of capacity and raised fares (evidently the rise of oil plays a big role here, but I would say a large chunk of this raise is not oil-related). How many daily DFW-MEX flights do AA and MX offer? And what do fares look like now? How about loads? Thanks!

Quoting EddieDude (Reply 3): because AM is very, very superior to what AA offers
You got that right buddy ... AM and MX are both far superior to nearly any US carrier product... it's amazing to compare their on-board service to that of a US Carrier.... I primarily am speaking of first class cabins.

I can't see AM returning without a viable Skyteam feed at DFW. I think any attempt by them to do so would meet with most stiff resistance by the AA/MX oneworld partnership. I can't imagine where they would fly from DFW that would really give them a decent chance at being competitive. AA would do what they always do when it comes to competition - lower the fares, rely on it's FF base to keep it's aircraft full, run AM out of town, and return to the status quo.
